Jenn's 2yr Blogaversary!!!

Welcome to Scrap Happens ~ Embellish It's 2nd Blogoversary Blog Hop. I'm so excited to be participating with so many talented ladies today and I'm so glad you've joined us because you're in for a real treat!
You should have arrived from Lori's blog but if you have just stumbled upon my blog, click here to start from the beginning.
This is an ANYTHING GOES hop and there are so many different craft projects to see along the way. So let's get to it shall we! I've got a series of two paintings to share with you today. This is a 9x12 canvas titled "Winged Hope". I used tissue paper, soft body acrylics, oil pastels India Ink and stamps to create this piece.
Here's a closer look at the texture that I created by applying tissue paper to the background. The larger flower is a Donna Downey stamp. I colored it in with oil pastels and then used paints to add in low lights and highlights. I doodled around all of the edges with India ink.
The quote I used is by Emily Dickinson, "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all."
I had so much fun creating the first one that I decided to make a second coordinating piece.
I used Liquitex Glass Bead medium to add texture to this canvas. Once it cured overnight, I began layering in fluid acrylics, soft body acrylics, oil pastels, stamps and India Ink. I think this one is my favorite of the two because of the beautiful bright colors.
The sentiment I used is Psalms 46:10 by PWP. You can find it on their scriptures stamp set.
Here's a closer look at the glass bead texture, isn't that cool! I hope you've enjoyed my mixed media paintings today, now before I send you off to the next stop I have a little blog candy to share:
