My first Social Media Highlights.

Oct 29, 2017

Come on over to my Instagram page to keep up to date with my posts and art process.

This is my first post where I am sharing highlights from my social media posts from over the past several months with you. You can also find my live social media feeds for Facebook and Instagram on the bottom of most of my website pages and in my blog sidebars. Clicking on those feeds will take you over to my Instagram and Facebook.  From now on, my plan is to share some of my key social media posts the end of each month.

I like Pinterest for more than just sharing my blog and art. Other things that I love about it is to find inspiration for other creative projects that I enjoy doing aside from my art.

I love making creative cards and gifts for people. Especially with my Cricut Explore die cutting machine which is essentially a digital blade that will cut out anything one wants. I use it for my mixed media art as well. I am still thinking about how I want to plan this blog category, but one idea I am considering is to sometimes feature my sketchbook, craft projects or other things I share on Instagram that inspire me that month.

I hope you will join me on my exciting journey as I continue to grow this blog, my website, my new imaginary animal art, and art themes of the future.

Here are some close up details of “Snorf” along with several patterns I created and printed that I will be using for image transfers in my mixed media art, and a test print of Snorf with the Epson p800 printer . This printer does museum quality prints that Epson guarantees to last.
A rough sketch in my sketchbook to plan my composition for my Snorf Dream Wall mixed media art piece. I am still doing technique experiments to see how I want to combine the soft Pan Pastels with acrylic inks, and other materials that I am still testing out to see what will give me the look and feel I want for this piece. I will be sharing more of my process with this on Instagram and Facebook.
Some preliminary sketches towards creating my next imaginary animal. I started the first with some free form doodling and the body idea came while laying in bed. Sometimes great ideas come in that way.  Then, I redraw my characters several times to refine the initial design. I’m not sure yet if I’ll go with a frontal or side view. His design will evolve as I play with doodling the details and I still want to play in my sketchbook some more before I decide which doodles I want to refine further for his final look. I like my initial sketches to inform how I develop my characters so that I don’t get too caught up with overthinking it.
Working on a design to add to the patterns that are on my Snorf animal. Using Corel Painter and my Wacom Intous tablet.
A still image of my work in progress of my Snorf piece. I used Pan Pastels, watercolours,some acrylics and Shiva oil paint sticks for the mixed media background.
Materials I used for the more iridescent skins. I used PearlEx powder for shimmery colours.
Here are the acrylic skins shapes I cut out for my mixed media Snorf imaginary animal piece. I used the vinyl setting on my Cricut Explore machine shown here to cut out the shapes in the acrylic skins. I’m not sure if I will use these in the background of my Snorf piece yet. I’m hoping it will work out the way I envision it.
Aside from my art, I love paper crafts and making unique 3D cards. This is an exploding box card for a baby I made awhile ago.
