Today, since it’s my birthday (go to my YT channel at 11am Pacific and join in!) I thought I’d share what I feel is “me” – my fine art! Yes I do love my crafting….but where I find myself growing is trying new things beyond that little A2 sized surface! A bunchof these have only music without voiceover. Lots of times when I’m trying new things I have zero idea how to explain it…sometimes looking is the best way to learn, too!
These are not, of course, my only or best works. They’re just the ones on YouTube! The most amazing things always seem to happen off camera. But if you’d like to explore more of my fine art works, or choose any to purchase for your own art collection, please see my Fine Art site.

The “no line” look can be done with about any medium; you just need to have an ink that will “disappear.” I love the no-line ink from Ink on Three for all three of the mediums below; sometimes I use distress or distress oxides for watercolor if I want the lines to fully wash out.
You can also try “second generation” stamping – stamp once on scrap, then again without reinking on your main paper. That should give you a tinted look to the stamp lines. Be careful that whatever ink you use, it doesn’t bleed with the medium. Test appropriately!
