Awesome Art Foamies Stamps! Colorful Tutorial & Techniques

I love totally creating art with stamps! I was invited by the Art Foamies to create a project iwht some of their designs and the #ArtFoamies are simply wonderful!
These I'm using in this art video are from Sandra Evertson and from Gina Ahrens.

The steps are easy and I enjoyed every single part of the art process:
I worked on a large journal page but it can definitely be done on a canvas.

First step, Gesso the surface and paint a background with your favorite colors, I selected sky blue.

I made a template of the silhouette I wanted to use for a mask to avoid stamping in some areas:

With the botanical design I stamped in the background with different colors to give the background depth and interest: [Pic 3]

The heart Foamie was stamped on a colorful paper to collage it separately: [Pic 4]

With a tissue paper, or deli paper, you can create a new design pattern paper to add as well in your composition. [Pic 5] - [Pic 6]

Painting Daffodil flowers with acrylics

Daffodils are known by different names in different places, like Lent lilies, Easter rose, Hen and Chickens, and to some means bad luck, or good fortune, depends on who you ask.

Just a note, it is for your personal use and not for mass printing. ♥

For those that love painting flowers, or wish they could... don't be afraid! And don't think that the only way to paint is Realistic because Abstract, Folk or Figurative styles are a lot of fun!

Self portrait in Acrylic - Painting faces Modigliani style

This past February, painting for the 29 faces was an extra challenge. In my personal life I had 3 family members passing away. Not due to covd but the pandemic made things worse.

We drove to TX with the hope to see people -properly social distancing and all -  but we ended stranded in a hotel, the roads closed due to ice, bunch of unexpected snow and all kinds of chaos. 
We were ok even if we had very limited food, but many friends and family ended up with no electricity, no water and many other problems.
At the end we didn't see anyone, we had to just turn back and drive west.

My feelings and thoughts have been up and down and all I can say is...

It is totally true that art heals when needed. It helps your mental health. Sometimes it helps more, sometimes less, sometimes it takes a while to kick in, the healing while making art, but sending our hands and heart to work on creating, keeps the mind from going in that other circle that might take a while to heal. 

Plus, art helps You and also brings a smile to Another far away person that sees it. 😊
I know for myself, looking at all the faces people created this month, felt very good.

This is what I managed to create. Click HERE to watch this video

Much love to you ♥
