New Art...

Spent all day yesterday creating this piece! The base is 8.5" x 11" cardstock. Collage pieces came from Teesha-Moore , a small bit from Kawaii note paper, magazine clips, some from my own stash and then lots of doodling, shading with poster paint pens, colored pencils, oil pastels and other various pens. And some rubber stamped words.
The background started out with a bit of scribbling with Neo II watersoluable crayons and washed over with a baby wipe. The border was then added, along with the main image and the rest is explained above!
Working on another piece...nothing is ever planned when it comes to Zettiness for me...I just go with the flow and piece it together as it comes to me! I do enjoy many types of my previous pieces that were more vintagey, which is a very fun and fast paced process! I am sure I will do more of those in the future...I like to jump back and forth and also try new ways to create collages! I don't get bored that way! hee hee Or should I say I get bored easily! hmmmm LOL
Gotta run! A few errands to do! I would prefer to stay at home and do art, but got to keep a roof over our heads! LOL Not thrilled about going out and is unusually cool outside for July! What's up with that?!


  1. And again... love this Nancy!!! That quote is awesome - read it before somewhere but it keeps coming back to me... maybe I should go dance!!! (it rained alot overhere in Holland!)

  2. LUV this one, Nancy! But then again, I love everything that you create!!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  3. I would give my bottom dollar for you to come teach me how to do what you do! Dang it all! I have drool oozing out the sides of my wide open mouth! I am envious. I am awestruck. I am full of admiration. And yes, dance in the rain, baby! I still have my training wheels on but I am trying.
