  1. What’s Happening with CelestinePaints?

    June 24, 2015 by Administrator

    Hi! I haven’t posted to my blog in a great while.  No excuses, but now I am back.

    A lot has been going on.

    We had a great spring art class at Foster Center.  We had a great time with Zentangle, painting and art journaling. No new classes are scheduled right now.  But please let me know if you want me to schedule a new class.

    My summer schedule for face painting is filling up. I have plans to do many church and community events.  Contact me if you want face painting at your next party, picnic or event.

     

    Delphi Glass, Lansing MI used my art in their Glass enameling ebook.

    And if you check it out you may find me hiding in the back of some of the pictures.

    I have been art journaling, card making, painting, scrapbooking, stamping, drawing and any other new art I can find.

    I have really enjoyed watching Create and Craft on ROKU. They showed one of my projects on a recent show.

     

     

    Last but not least I have started work on my 2015 Christmas cards!

    Well, I don’t plan to take so long to post again.  Good bye for now and keep on crafting!

    My latest project is making 3-D pop-up box greeting cards. I love decorating these.  I came up with an easy way to make the basic card base without a lot of measurements.  Check out my tutorial on Youtube (click here).

     


  7. Love my Gelli Plate!

    June 6, 2014 by Administrator

     

    After a big craft fail … (trying to make my own mono printing plate ) I bought a Gelli Plate.  Now I am hooked! I have had so much fun using stencils, stamps, sprays, paints and anything else I can find to make art using my Gelli Plate. Here are examples of background papers I have created.

    Check out http://www.gelliarts.com or look up Monoprinting with a Gelli Plate on YouTube for more information.
