Hi! It's hard to believe my baby turned 28 on Monday! Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday he was just a baby! Well, not really but if you're a Mom, surely you can relate to what I mean :) So many milestones reached along the way, college, marriage and settled into his career...sigh...
Jerry and his sweet wife, April live in San Francisco so I made him a birthday card featuring a cable car image from the PTI Cable-Gram stamp which I colored using Prima Oil Pastels:

I was inspired by the photo shown below for color:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges: for sketch inspiration, I joined along with retrosketches

Hi! Love is in the air! Today it's my turn to share a home decor project on the Prima blog. Please feel free to stop by and say hi HERE :)
I enjoy creating various home decor projects featuring Finnabair Mechanicals year round. I altered a wooden table top decoration simply by layering and adhering an assortment of Finnabair Mechanicals followed with an application of white gesso and random clear crackle texture paste. Once dry, for a touch of shimmer and shine, I randomly applied the following colors of art ingredients Mica Powders: Frozen Lake, Teal, Purple and Blue.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my projects. Please be sure to visit the Prima blog for loads of awesome inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

a sunflower and love 22

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, February 7, 2016 @ 9:52 PM | , , , , ,

Hi! I hope you had a great weekend! I had a lot of fun hiking, biking, painting and paper crafting. It's week 3 in the online painting workshop that I'm currently taking with one of my favorite artists Dreama Tolle Perry. This week we are painting a sunflower along with carnations in a blue jar:
Here's my sample on a 9" x 12" canvas board. I'm going to give this one another go on the same size panel then jump to a "20 x 20" canvas to hang in my studio.

 I also created a Valentine's Day card featuring a variety of die cuts, flowers and pretty patterned papers from my stash:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
I was inspired by the hearts, shades of pretty pinks and kraft at the Card Concept challenge using a Clean and Layered style:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

A sweet treat... 28

Mona Pendleton | Friday, February 5, 2016 @ 10:51 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi! I had to take some time to catch up on some DT responsibilities so I had to put my paints and paintbrush aside until tonight! I'm currently taking an online oil painting workshop with one of my favorite artists Dreama Tolle Perry and this week's assignment was to paint cupcake :)
I'm learning so much about color values, contrast, transparent and opaque colors, etc...

I also took the time to create a Valentine's Day card using a fun banner die that I bought nearly a year ago and never used:

I'm linking my painting in the current Paint Party Friday linkup:
For card color inspiration, I joined along with the ColourQ colour challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
