Catching up with digital collage

Time goes so fast but I am going slower these days. I joined our new senior center to get away from my computer and iPad. I don’t take my iPad with me because I am so afraid I will lose it. It took me such a long time to save up enough money to buy it! But I digress. Where I was going with this is the activities at the senior center have taken over my life. Not only am exhausted from all the exercise have classes, but they played Rummikub. It is a form of Gin Rummy with plastic chips instead of cards. I honestly don’t remember ever playing that game so I spend a lot of time trying to learn to play it to save face when I am at the center. As a result all of this has cut into my creative time! (Boy, my age is showing with all of the backstory rambling!)

An artist whose work I saw on Tumblr just knocked my Rummikub game right off the computer. It’s not like mine, but for some reason his work inspired me to use some of my travel photos again. The artist is Stev’nn Hall 

I used a photo I took in Scotland years ago and one of my CitraSolv textures. Of course I created the collage on my iPad Pro using my favorite apps, Procreate.

Summer Fun and Adventure

This is a first for me to run a sale on my Etsy products. I love to create art, eBooks, textures, etc., but like most creatives it stops there. Then I was reminded that my friends and customers deserve a thank you for their support and the best way to do it is to offer a nice discount. So from today until May 31, 2017, I am giving you a coupon for 20% off of everything in my Etsy shop. Just apply this code at check out.   ZC4EMS1

There are eBooks with instructions for creating textures with CitraSolv and using them for unique art and mixed media art, art journal and collages.  If you live in an area where you cannot purchase CitraSolv then I offer digital textures that I created with this process, You can print them out and use them for collage, or backgrounds for your creation. They are also great for digital art like the piece I created above on my iPad. As an added bonus I'll send you the texture I used for the digital art for free with any purchase during this sale. Remember the sale ends May 31st! To learn more about these eBooks go to

Have fun this summer and create something with CitraSolv®.

Flowers in Bloom

Atlanta is at its loveliest this time of year. Flowers are in bloom everywhere. They inspired me to paint this flower bouquet on my iPad using the Procreate app. Since so many people have asked me how I do it I am thinking about creating a short video class about it. What do you think?

Making Slideshow Videos

As I get older everything takes a little longer and more effort to do. As many of you probably know I have written another eBook using CitraSolv®. I am totally fascinated with the textures and other things I can do with CitraSolv® and I love sharing my techniques in the form of eBooks. It’s my art instructor mentality. I made promotion videos for my other two eBooks, but I really dragged my heels on this one. It turned out to be a lot shorter, but some say it’s a good one. What do you think?

You can learn more about this new eBook at , or to purchase go directly to my Etsy shop

BTW you don't have to have CitraSolv® to benefit from the information in this eBook!
