fun with dylusions

So you know how I make the masks out of magazine pages?
well this was fun....did my mask then sprayed with Dylusions sprays in teal and magenta colors, then blotted with the preceding page in my journal. That gave me a great solid image from the spray that stayed on the vinyl mask.....so FUN!

Quickies in the Saints journal

The Secret Blog is keeping me on my toes with more drawing than I have done in a long while......this week I am heading to Scottsdale. This will be my first trip in a long while  so I am getting some blog stuff done ahead of time and I am going to use the scheduling options for my later posts this week. Besides packing and making notes for classes I still need many more drawings  for the blogs.

storing templates & stencils

I had this folder from one of our old cruises and started using it for my 6X6 stencils and smaller templates. It worked so well I ordered a black PROfolio for my larger stencils. The plastic sleeves are perfect for keeping them in some type of order.
