Texture Bubbles

Some art to share with you all today...

The canvas is 24" x 36" ish.  (The photos are taken on different days in different light, I struggled to get photos I was happy with.)

Basically, I messed around creating texture and then added some paint.  I'm sure a different artist or an expert would go in to great detail and talk about technique and the thinking behind the painting.  I didn't really think about anything in particular, I just created with no goal or aim in my mind.

I had fun.  I used colours that took my fancy not worrying if they matched or not.

I tried to create as much texture as possible.

And I added neon pink - just because!

I think this is the way I need to paint.  To just paint instead of thinking.

What do you think?

It's hanging above my TV and I often find myself just staring at it!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Loving the mix of colours.

    Hope you have a nice day. Sue

  2. I agree just to paint and not to engage brain - so therapeutic and beautiful results!

  3. I like it. Very interesting with all the circles and texture. I like the hot pink bits. Hugz

  4. This is fabulous Laura!!! I need to learn to switch off the brain, I know I can do it - but its rare!! You've managed it and look at the result! Fabulous! You've got mixed media artist all over this! Hope to see some more work from you!

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
