|All Together Now|
I'm supposed to have a small artful giveaway to 'someone' who also plays along in this party! I am donating this painting that is 8x10. It is collage'd with paper..then painted. I use a variety of paints, watercolor and acrylics..then some charcoal..and then of course..my drawings for the main images! I like to draw randomly in a drawing book..so I have a small collection..I use those as inspiration. Along with the pkg I have an altered notebook done with collage and image by Lisa's Altered Arts. The 3rd item in the pkg is a bottle cap necklace..which has one of my paintings as the focal point. I hope you like my 'giveaway'..
Now about "ME"..I am Amy..I give every moment and try to be the BEST mom ever to my 4 children..Married for 15yrs! I love to volunteer in my spare time. I am a Girl Scout leader to 12 girls..it is my 5th year doing so and I LOVE IT! I have done so many fun things thru girl scouting that I never thought I'd do. I am also a driver to many..we only have one vehicle..and since I work parttime..I drive everyone where they need to go! Including my 4 very outgoing sporty children..whom are devoted to the sport of baseball. Now for my paying job: I work parttime in foodservice at an insurance company. But wait..that is not all..that does not DEFINE ME!!!
What defines me..is my soul and spirit!! I try to show my spirit thru my art..oh and a bit of laughter! I love to laugh..laugh til hearts content. Being funny and art are utmost important to me and who I am.
I always have chewing gum or mints in my purse..I believe oral freshness is the key to a good smile!
I love being blonde..the blonder the better! and short hair to..never have I had long hair..don't know..doesn't fit my style or face or something.
I am an avid lover of the outdoors. I walk 45mins a day with our dog Harley..then hop on my Trek for a quick bike ride around my neighborhood for about 20mins a day.
Thank you for visiting me here at my blog! I hope you have enjoyed getting to know a tiny bit more about me and also see some of my artful'ness!

Rainbow Lady: Get INky
I collaged the background..then inked the sides and top..lightly! Adding a hint of light brown for some aging. Added my sentiment. Frida was printed and then I painted her in..added some dimension to her with heavy cardstock as a backing and some shadowing! Some bling to her headpiece..Thanks for looking!! Love ya's~
