Kathy describes herself as a traditional artist working mainly with coloured pencils and pastels. You can see the detail that goes into her work, millions of strokes of the pencil. Kathy definitely enriches my life with her abilities. Stop by and take a look for yourself by following the linked piece below :-)

I so enjoy finding new artists and love to check in and find out what new pieces they are working on. Art on the net is kind of like a spiders web. On most blogs you’ll find a list of the owners favourite blogs. I’m guessing that’s how I came across Lisa but once you get hooked you keep coming back for more.
Lisa’s work is just like that, for me anyway, makes you want more. Lisa paints but what they in the know call ‘Mixed Media’ allowing for raised images that come alive from the page and her work sure does come alive. I don’t yet own a piece of Lisa’s work but hope to one day, in the mean time I visit her blog for my fix :-) Please take the time to check out her art. Lisa's blog can be found at http://llcreations.blogspot.com/

1) Writing, stories, mostly children’s although I have one adult piece in the works. Poetry, whatever moves me to put pen to paper.
2) Owls are my most recent ‘thing’. I’m not obsessed but everywhere I turn they keep appearing. I’m making my own now from paper and felt (you can see them on Constellations).
3) Crafting, in the past I’ve made jewellery and done glass painting. More recently scrapbooking, card making Atcs and now felt crafting.
4) Hearing bird song. I find it so therapeutic and always think it’s a sign of spring.
6) I love my family and my son who entertains me with his Michael Jackson impressions, he’s good too!
7) I love trees, love looking at their arms reaching out, stretching out into the universe, to see them come into bud and change colour in the Autumn.
8) I love CHOCOLATE, CHRISTMAS AND COINTREAU!
Thanks Michelle for awarding me Kreative Blogger and I would now like to present this award to the following:-
When we were children mum was always creative, helping to decorate and furnish dolls houses, making an amazing hat shop, you had to see it, unfortunately it’s no longer around to be seen. Think about that when you’re cleaning out the closet!
Mum has a wonderful folder full of art, some drawn, collaged, and painted. Many period ladies, hairstyles (mum was also a hairdresser). Mum in her time has done PC courses but is mostly self-taught. She is great at web design, and digital art and more recently tried her hand at blog layouts. Mum is not what you would anticipate a typical sixty plus lady in this day and age to be but she loves her computer, like me it’s her lifeline.
Please take the time to go check out her blog and Website by following the linked pieces below.
Thanks Mum x

I always think it’s fascinating to see the vast variation in what artists produce. Heather builds up and paints on collaged backgrounds, something I had never see before, or not noticed. So you can see (as in life) the many layers behind the painting. In her words ‘Mixed media folk art inspired by love, family, faith, history and life out on the prairie’.
