I painted these pictures about 4 years ago. The one with the boats and the old house was my very fist painting. I have it framed in my living room to remind me to search my hidden talents! Never give up and always express myself.

These are a few of my water colors I have done of little children. The last picture is on my niece and nephew. I love this picture so much I decided to paint it. It showed me the love that a child has. Unconditional. Kissing her new baby brother on the head. He was born early and had a bit of a rough start.
The ducks is something. I just wanted to try. I saw the picture in a painting book and loved it so much I wanted to paint it myself... It turned out well
The other painting is my son and daughter. They are always holding each other so I decided to paint my husband a photo..
These are a few of the oil painting That I have painted! Since the weather is wet and cold I can't go outside and paint! I miss painting during the winter months. I am trying to paint more so my children will always have something to remember me by. I can't think Of anything more lovely than something there own mom created with her hands. I do have so much more to learn. I just hope someday I will be satisfied with the many things I create. My dissatisfaction Is what motivates me to have a new and best masterpiece every time I make something. This is my life, besides my children Of coarse. I love to make what ever I can.
I also have a love for service, but that is another chapter In another book. So I will keep On the subject of painting and how it fills my soul. If my hands are busy my soul Is happy. I hope you enjoy the old Barn by the River Painting. I painted it for my god child. She is very special to me. I hold her dear in my heart!
Mountains! when I think Of mountains I often think Of obstacles. I painted the mountain picture for my en laws . I was trying to thank them for Helping my family through a rough time. She was very kind and generous while we were going through a dry patch. I tried to think about how can I say thank You without any money to give? What can I do to let them know I appreciate all they have done and will continue to do for us? I decided to paint them a picture. The mountain Picture was the finished results!!!
Pink Trees I painted this Picture for my daughter. She was only four at the time. So I thought What would a four year old want in an oil painting. Pink trees was the answer. When I showed her the painting her eyes lit up and she said" Thank You mom and I love the pink trees. So I got my results I was looking for. It's always nice to go to someone house and see my artwork Hanging on there wall. It definite tells me thank you and I appreciate your work. Painting anything makes me happy and lift my soul. So If I paint something for you. You know That I am grateful for something. Whether it is being a wonderful daughter, friend or just to say thank you for being you!
This picture is the last one I painted so far! It is peaceful and reminds me of my childhood. The trees and the beauty of the lake. The night time holds dear in my heart, for I love to look at the stars. To remember all the peaceful and happy memories I have of my past. Every time I have taken time out to look at the stars. The time was always peaceful, sometime sad. I often look to the stars to ponder and find out answer within my heart. So this picture had lots of love and meaning. I do have to say I think my last oil is the best so far. I once herd that every artist's last work is always there best masterpiece. I will try to paint more once the weather is nice. I will have more to post when they are finished.
The meaning of this page is to inspire and to help people create something beautiful. We are all different with different views in life. That is what makes this world so special. Don't forget to remember the beauty in Life. If we are lucky we can capture it on Paper!
This is a water color painting I made. I use Tim Holtzs color wash spray bottle for the background and painted the rest with my watercolor paints. It just another creation ! I enjoyed experimenting with this painting. I tried new things and created a new look. I do have many other painting witch I have done. I hope you enjoy the look I created!!
I changed this a bit from the original ! I was not very happy after looking at the layout a few times on the crop circle a online group I belong to. So I changed the lettering and removed some half circles I had under Her arms. My daughter said to me" Mom can you please stop changing MY Layout" I thought it was so cute. I promised her I wouldn't change it anymore!!! This is the finished and final results! Life is great and I enjoy capturing a few lovely surprises.
I would like to start posting a few videos on how to create a few project! I am Hoping to do that soon! Thank You so much for looking at my blog! it has been so much fun creating and sharing my art work!!

This is a simple one for me.I Usually have really busy layouts. I didn't want to take away from what is going on in the picture. So I decided to keep it simple.I stamped the top with swirls . I also sandpapered in the middle of the swirls to let the light green paper show. Core'dinations paper. The red look closely embellishment was left over from some red paper I painted from white card stalk. I added a brad on top of the Vellum strip of paper added on top. the vellum is from a picture I printed up of some trees. I thought the green match this layout well. I cut the arrow out of card stock and added round swirls to it... That is about it. I just loved the picture so much I had to make a lay out with it.
Wow the kids were really having fun! This little guy is defiantly my little superhero. I think it is his most favorite thing to do besides Eat! he truly is at his happiest. He always running around the house shooting his webs and trying to fly with his cape. He also love to pretend to soot things. Something he learned on his own. Since this is an old fashion Batman suit I wanted to make it like the old fashion Movies. So I hope you enjoy my little Batman in action.
This is a different type of scrapbook. I rarely piece anymore. Since my little guy supervise the the process of his page he inspired me with his excitement. I painted the batman sign myself. Drew it on white card stalk and painted it. I did use core'dinations card stalk and sanded the sides. I also painted white paper red and then cut the stamp letter with my cricket. The Bat man was a coloring paper I got off line.
This was made on core'dinations black magic card stock. I simply loved working with it. It added a great affect to my paper. I painted a lot on this layout because I must have been in the mood to oil Paint and I decided to scrapbook instead. I painted the swirls and I use gold ink for the stars and Imagine title... I also distressed it with gold and I scraped it all over the page... It was a very fun Page to work on!! there was no sun today so I will try to retake the layout. It look so much much better in my book!
This is one of my favorite now. I printed the song silent night on velum. I use Heidei Swap flower and added ink, Stickels, beads and overlaid it with glaze. Cut out Christmas from Cricut. I use two ribbons in the back round. Behind flower I put together Tim Holts new alcohol inks and it look so beautiful. Like marble . I inked everything. Added silver, black and brown high lights to the Christmas word. The main card stock is from Close to my heart. The strip of paper and the top paper is from Provo Craft.. All My ink Is Tim Holtz Ink!! Great stuff!! I will retake picture when the sun finally comes out in Utah!!
I painted my own paper and flowers. I added gloss to the flower and pop dots. I also painted the sides. First layout ever using paint. I thought I would share...
This is my most recent page I made of my daughters birthday! I really enjoyed playing with the many different ink techniques . Changing the way I scrapbook is important to me! The style pretty much stays the same! The products and techniques often change! I hope You enjoy looking at this page! I will have more coming I also Have many painting I would love to share !
