Close To Home: A Watercolor Landscape Journey

Hi everyone.  I'm so excited to finally share that I'm back to teaching some classes.  This time it's in the form of watercolor painting!  Please join me and check out my class called Close To Home: A Watercolor Landscape Journey.  You can view all the details and sign up for class over at the Jeanne Oliver Network.  Link is here.  
 If you're new to Jeanne's site, she hosts wonderful classes given my herself and other talented artists. I've taken many and they are fabulous with a great amount of informative content.  It's my favorite place to learn something new about art.  Jeanne has such a way of sharing and I'm honored to be asked to join her creative network.
 We'll learn all about gathering up supplies for a travel art kit, refresh some art principles and review the color wheel.....and so much more......then put it all together to create simple and beautiful landscape watercolors in a journal.
If you've had that yearning to get back into your art....or to start new.....this class is for you.  We'll combine what we learn about painting with connecting our art to the beautiful surroundings right around us.  Come with me on a beautiful journey, you deserve it.

Good news!

Hi everyone! These days I am able to post more photos and short blurbs over at Instagram because I can do it from the ease of my iPhone...and sometimes sitting on my sofa or while riding in the car.  I know for many of you, you miss out because you don't have an Instagram account.  As of today I figured out how to link my Instagram account right to my Mish Mash Facebook page.  So now, everything I post on Instagram can be viewed on Facebook.  It might help some of you out since a lot of us still have a Facebook account.  All you have to do is click on this link and like my Mish Mash Facebook page.  Check for updates daily as I post quite often. Feel free to leave comments there too.

I hope this helps some of us stay better connected.  I will still be posting blog posts but not daily like I do on Instagram.  In case you haven't seen me in a while.......here I am, alive and well just loving life. Stay tuned for some exciting things to come. I can't wait to share.

Get well cards...

The last of the cards I made from the Don't Forget To Write kit from Papertrey Ink.  
 Always nice to have a few get well cards in my stash.  I used the patterned papers in the kit and adhered them to some card fronts.
 Simple stamped tags, wash tape and a few staples make an easy focal point.
 My basket is filling up again.
Thanks for stopping by!

A happy hello....

I'm sharing more cards today made from the Papertrey Ink Don't Forget To Write Kit. I spent some time die cutting and stamping flowers, stamping a sentiment then adding typed words with my vintage typewriter and selecting papers and envelopes.  
 I ended up with a fun little set of generic greeting cards, perfect for any occasion.  My favorite colors too.
 Fun details added like machine stitching, the gold paperclip and Washi tape.  Old dictionary paper was used for the background. Card sets are from Paper Source.
 A hand stamped envelope makes receiving a card in the mail just that much more special.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!  Your comments are always appreciated so thank you if you take the time to leave me a note. :)

Just a note of thanks card set....

In my previous post, I shared a card making station that I set up.  Here's my first batch of note cards.  
 I usually mass produce when I get out my supplies because it's just as easy to take a little more time to stamp a mess of cards rather than just one at a time.
 Vintage music paper in the background.  Die cuts, stamping, stitching and a paperclip to finish off the fronts.
On the envelopes, I stamped a sentiment then added a splash of watercolor to coordinate with the card fronts.  More to come, stay tuned.  What have you been creating lately?

Don't forget to write card making station...

Long time no blog, friends.  It's been a very busy month around here with Mother's Day, graduations, birthdays, end of school activities, softball, etc.  I made it over the hump and finally took some time to do something just for me.  After spending way too much money of store bought cards recently I decided to take some time to set up a card making station.  It's one of my favorite things to do.....just gather up stamps, papers, washi tape, embellishments and more and organize them all in a vintage basket.  The perfect little set up to help create some hand made cards. 
 The main stamp set I'm using is from a kit designed by Betsy Veldman from Papertrey.  She has been knocking it out of the ballpark with her fun designs.  Below is the stamp set that came with the kit but that's just a little bit of the kit...there are dies, stickers, envelopes and much to play with.
 I love colored envelopes and these are the ones that came with the kit.  I also have a huge stash of some fun colors from Paper Source and a few other places that I'll dig into also.
 Still loving gold accents so I fished a few things out of my stash.
 Baker's twine to coordinate with the colors in the kit.
 All tucked into some vintage wood storage boxes.  Those typewriter mini Instagrams are from my shop here.
Stay tuned, I've been made a list of cards I'd like to have on hand and I'll be sharing some designs soon.  You can also see previews on my Instagram account.  I'm MishWooderson over there.

Travel Sketch Rolls.....

I've had a lot of people take notice of my Travel Sketch Rolls that I use to tote around my art supplies.  By request I've added some to my shop.  They measure about 9" x 13" unfolded so they're smaller than your average brush roll.  I can tuck in all the supplies you see below.  This assortment holds my metal travel paint palette, pens, brushes, pencil, eraser and more. 
 This set up includes a small sketch book along with pencil, eraser and an assortment of pens.
 Here's the Travel Sketch Roll in use.  I wrap the ribbon tie around the folded over roll and stand it upright so I can easily reach my tools.
 For travel and storage just fold over the flap and fold the roll in half.  Wrap the tie around and tuck in for closure.  Throw it in your purse or art bag.  Easy peasy.
 How about the planner lovers?  These would be great for highlighters, pens and the like.  This one below is available in my shop now.
 So is this one of a kind Travel Sketch Roll made from vintage fabric.  There's a few more styles too.
You can find them RIGHT HERE.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out my Instagram at MishWooderson for more artsy stuff.

Spring Rain series of cards...

I've been practicing my watercolor clouds which resulted in a nice little pile of pretty landscapes.  
 That led to a series of cards in my Spring Rain series.
 I revised the colors in my palette and the best way to get to know your colors is to just play around with them.
 I wrapped up all the cards with a clear envelope and pretty purple ribbon.  Perfect for you and perhaps one for a friend.  I love tucking these into Easter baskets or little birthday bags as everyone could use a card.
 Cards are now up on my shop HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today!
