New Landscape Paintings

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. I had a tough time but I am hanging in there. Something that helps is being creative. A few weeks ago I was watching Donna Dewberry, the one stroke artist, on t.v.  She was doing landscape paintings. I have never done landscapes and couldn't wait to try.

She used acrylic paints but I used watercolor and oil pastels.  I do want to try acrylic paints next. So here are my first attempts. I am proud of them. If you want to learn more about Donna Dewberry go here: DONNA DEWBERRY BLOG

My very first one!

I really like the sky on this one. But the tree out of the water makes me laugh!

Love this one overall. I used white oil pastel to make the moon and stars.

This is my best effort. Love the overall look and the moon is oil pastel.

Tried something new on this. Not bad. I added land and whole trees.


  1. Kelly, these are wonderful. You are so talented. I love reading about your excitement in learning about this new-found talent. Congrats! You have done a great job.

  2. Kelly you did a great job on these.

  3. Very pretty!! You did very well!!!

  4. oooooooooo trying and doing is the hard part. they are wonderful.

  5. Very pretty Kelly, you are very talented. I can't wait to see what you do with the acrylic paints!

  6. Kelly I think you did a great job on these! Your palm leaves are really great and you can see you are getting the perspective of the sun/moon is better with each attempt! I give you a hand for attempting!

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
