      Little Artist and Birthday Monster!

      Le Petit Artiste

      This week I decided to show a few projects I made in the past few months but haven’t shared publicly. The lil artist above I painted over a year ago. I decided to add her to a new background ATC I created using Brea Reese glitter inks in medium magenta, Violet and lake blue. I then loosely outlined with Brea Reese fine liner pens the blobs of ink to make flowers. It was a great way to use an older project:)

      Backyard Monsters

      Cake Sketches

      The altered index card above was sent out to a swap friend last month for her birthday. I also included a gift certificate for Vera Lane Studio. I love giving a gift that others can use to create!

      Lil Morty from the Backyard Monsters set is one of my favorites! He’s so much fun to color and super easy to cut out! I felt the cake was the perfect hat for a birthday card.

      Both Morty and the cake were painted using Brea Reese Watercolor and glitter inks. I used a wet brush on dried paint to get the spots/freckles on his face.

      Also come join us over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group! Lots of fun! Swaps! And an all around great community!
