Theresa's Moly

I had a lot of fun with the theme and the crown. (Theresa wanted me to do something with it - and it was the inspiration for the motif: Rhinegold)

Petunia's Moly

It is very hot here in Los Angeles these days. It was 110 °F = 44 °C last weekend. I was almost cooked, my brain was melting, but I finished my entry for Petunia’s Moly. Her moleskine has a theme “Text, Texture & Color”. I am happy my color is BLUE. Because it is the only color, I can think of in this hot weather.

Off to Susan

Here is the envelope art I did for Susanne. I'm mailing Katya's moley to Germany tomorrow.-Theresa
P.S. Yes, I do like some stickers. Even cute ones. :)

We need a banner

Does anyone in this talented bunch know how to create a banner for our group? Lots of the other groups have banners with the artwork of their group. I'd do it but I don't know how.

The word is Art

I got Ronnie´s beautiful package today and I was so inspired I couldn´t wait! For Ronnie´s idea of words and texture, I used medium for a base coat, then used rubber stamps with letters, then a bit of guesso and used a tool to write on the guesso, when it was dry I painted it with sponges and acrilics, then collaged it with a created fairy and a mexican mail stamp and finally a few more ruber stamps and my favorite, a bit of glue with little stars to embellish, I am really enjoying this beautiful adventure! ThanX.

For Katya from Me

When I saw Katya's theme of "Museums" and her beautiful Scythian animals, I knew what I wanted to make for her moley. I love cave art animals and archaelogy is one of my favs too.

My procedure:
Sponge thick white paint to texture pages. Don't cover entire page with paint. When dry, ink pages to look like rock walls. Sponge inks for more color and texture. Draw animals with charcoal pencil, smudge in places. Color animals with chalks. Smudge gold glitter glue lightly onto page, scribble veins with gold metallic pen. Spray pages with fixative.

Theresa's Moly ...

... arrived today. What a gorgeous beauty! And I still don't know what to do with it ...

(BTW Theresa: What is your theme - "color" or "colorful women"?)

When I saw Katya's moley I kinda knew what I wanted to do in it when I received it. I actually finished it today and will take pictures of it. It was fun! Can't wait to get another one to do.-Theresa

Moly's in and Moly's Out!

Monica & Maria Elena: I got your Moly's today ... they both look beautiful ... thank you.
And Katya, I'm sorry that I sent mine out a bit late, but you should receive it Wednesday. I apologize if this sets you back ... sorry, sorry!
