Bookmarks Gallore


Well as promised here’s a look at the bookmarks I’ve done up so far.

I haven’t added the ribbons or eyelets to all of them yet, but it gives you an idea of the immense color variety available.

They have a unique plastic/leather feel to them.

For those of you who missed my first bookmark post here’s the information again for you.

Colorful portable art for on the go people!

The perfect companion to any book and a unique Christmas gift for any book/art lover!
Each bookmark is hand painted using acrylic paint on acid and ligning free card stock.
It has been given a clear protective coat making it water resistant.
They measures 6โ€ณx2โ€ณ and feature a small eyelet with a co-coordinating ribbon that has been fray stopped.

“Promise”-Complete


Well I’ve finally finished something.

I feel like I’ve been pulled in 10 different directions and it’s not going to stop yet.

So what have a finished? #2 in the Three Fold Prayer series: “Promise”

Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

I really like the blue on this one. It’s just so rich.

As for the bookmarks yes I am still working on them and I was hoping to post those as well but the darn things take so long to dry.

So they’re not finished yet.

Maybe tomorrow…I dunno.

Well Cheers for now!

Persistence-Three Fold Prayer series


A day late but as promised.

Here is #1 “Persistence” of a 3 part series on prayer. Each piece is 11″ x 15″.

The series is based on the 3 key aspects of prayer as mentioned in Luke chapter 11.

I’ll try to do post the rest of the series over the next few days.

I’m also working on some blank greeting cards with my artwork as the cover as well as some unique hand painted bookmarks. I’ll post some examples as I get them finished.ย  I’m also hoping to update with a list of prices and a gallery highlighted the various items for sale and of course, they’ll all be available to purchase at the upcoming trade show.

Stay tuned!

Cheers,

Amanda

Three Fold Prayer & Thanksgiving


Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you all!

I spent all of yesterday baking, cooking and painting. Fun!

So what did I get accomplished you might ask?

Well, I made two pumpkin pies, baked some yams and made stuffing.

Oh and I also finished the watercolor on the “Three Fold Prayer” series.

I was able to finish the writing on the first piece “Persistence” however I haven’t had time to take a picture yet.

You’ll just have to wait until my next post.

Here’s a look at the recently added watercolor layer. Continue reading

Three fold prayer-edited


Alright so after testing out the 195gms paper I find myself un-impressed.

So I’ve decided to re-do the series on the same paper I did the “Life Simplified” series on.

Same size and everything so instead of being 9″x12″ they’ll be 11″x15″ approx.

I’ve also changed the last image to something more suitable.

The series will be based on the three fold concept of prayer presented in Luke 11: 1-13.

Persistence, Promise, Provision

I’ll update once I’ve added the color.

Cheers,

A
