Mixed Media Techniques on Blotter Paper

Mixed Media Techniques on Blotter Paper

Hey friends, what’s going on today?  Well…..

… I thought I would take my under paper (blotter) on my art table and take it to the next level with more layers of paint.  I’ll show you how I use texture paste on art tissue paper and use those torn pieces as collage fodder. Finally, I show you how I put an image transfer on the piece.

 

I really hope you enjoy that and share with others.  Please subscribe, click the thumbs up and share if you liked it.

I’ll be back soon with more.

Thanks for your comments; I just love hearing from you.

Pumpkin Cake

Standard

Hi Friends, I’m back pretty quick, huh?    The weather here is turning into crisp fall days. The leaves are falling quickly and it’s chilly one day and warm the next. We are starting to get buds on the flowers again.  Welcome to New England.  I hate to think what’s coming.  The Farmer’s Almanac says it will be a brutal winter, but don’t they say that every year?

Hey, so I as able to sneak in another video while I was at my mom’s, but it’s just me this time.  I’ve been a member of Weight Watchers for the past year and want to start sharing recipes that I make/create for member or for anyone, really.  I don’t change the cooking in my home.  My family eats what I make.   Even with 2 gluten free (celiac) daughters we all just adjust.

So with that said, I went and made a sugar free pumpkin cake that is so good.  Now, if you can stay away from too many pieces, you’re in good shape.. well, that’s the idea anyway…. to get in good shape, right?

Enjoy the short video and I hope you make it.

Thank you for all your lovely comments.. they mean so much to me.

Hey wonderful followers –  I’m back with a new cooking video with mom. This time we are making a lentil and onion dish called “Mujadara”.  It’s pronounced “em-jed-darrah”.

It’s so great to get mom in the kitchen again.  So happy she is still wanting to do this with me. I’m am truly blessed.

Anyway, enjoy the video and I’ll be back with another recipe one on my own and hopefully getting another art video lined up.

Edgar Allen Poe Journal

Standard

Hey, everyone… This weekend is the end of July!!!  Can you believe it? Wasn’t it just May?

This weekend, I published a video on how to create of journal from a notebook.  I covered the back and front of the notebook, creating a personal journal, with layers and layers of paint and just did an overall mixed media frenzy on it.  After all the love/hate process and the stages it went through, I love the way it turned out.

I created this as a gift for my amazing niece, Christina, for her birthday.  She loves Edgar Allen Poe and she loves to write. So, I created this journal for her to enjoy and write in.

I hope you enjoy it.

If you do enjoy my channel, whether it be my art or cooking, I’d love it if you subscribe and hit the thumbs up.  Please share with all your family and friends.

I’ll be back soon for another video on some sort of art.. .culinary or mixed media.

Love to hear from you with your comments.

Thanks for all your support and being here.

Sito’s Kitchen – “Itch”

Standard

Well, hello my friends and Happy Summer.

I sure hope you are all enjoying your weather wherever you are. We have had such a strange summer with lots of little thunderstorms and sunny, hot days.  It just feels good to leave the house without grabbing a jacket and walking in warm weather.  It doesn’t last long, so better enjoy it while we can, right?

Today, I am posting a video of Sito’s Kitchen with mom and I making a great dish called Itch (pronounced “eech”).  This simple dish is great alone, in a salad or as a scoop-able dip/appetizer.

As I write this, I realized you could replace the bulgar with quinoa.  Get creative, but the tomato paste is key here.  Take this to a party and you will be the talk of the town. LOL!!

I love hearing from you. Please leave a comment and like my post if you do enjoy it. Don’t forget to hit the thumbs up and subscribe.  I would love it if you shared with with your friends. 

I’ll be ready for an art video soon, so stay tuned for that.

“See” you soon

Sito’s Kitchen – “Hushweh”

Standard

Hey friends.. how is everyone doing in your part of the world?  We are getting better weather.. for a duck.   Spring is trying to emerge here in Massachusetts, but it’s coming.  We’ve had a couple of tease days of summer.  So nice by the ocean.

Well, I have a new video with my mom up.  We made a rice stuffing called Hushweh.  We pronounce it “HUSHOO”.  This dish is amazing.  This is what we grew up on… as you can tell that I’m not a size 0.. haha.  I’m so happy that my mom, at 91, wants to still do these with me.  It’s what she grew up with since she was a little girl… cooking, sewing and just taking care of others. Lots of sacrifice.  I don’t know how she did it, but you just do.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by.  I love all your comments and support. Don’t forget to LIKE the video and subscribe.

We’ll be back soon with a few more recipes.  In the meantime, enjoy!!

Please let me know if you try this recipe and how it came out.  I could never get the rice right.  Secrets are the key.

Love yaz
