Little Sparkles on the My Creative Jelly Roll

On High
8 x 10
Pastel on Pastelbord

My painting frenzy continues. I love when I'm on a creative roll. Being true to my words, I'm painting as much as I can while it lasts. This piece started out with water media (combination of turpenoid and acrylic textile paint) which I applied with a watercolor brush. It dried quickly but before it dried entirely I started in with the pastels using my fingers for a bit. For the finishing touch I shaved some iridescent pastels with an exacto knife on highlighted areas. What do you think?


  1. Wonderful painting. I like hearing about your process. I must find some of those iridescent pastels and try them as they add so much to the piece.

  2. I like it, too! But then, you know that I love sparkles. :)

  3. Oh yes. You do wonderful things with yours.

  4. Joann, Thank you. I will post more about my process from time to time.
