I hope you enjoy this one.

Homemade Naan and Pita Bread

Standard

Hey, I know it’s been a while since I put a recipe on my blog. I have been putting them directly on YouTube/Instagram (the devil.. lol) or Facebook.

I’m posting a video I did today where I made Naan and Pita Bread from a two ingredient dough made with Flour and Greek Yogurt.  Check out my other videos on YouTube to see how I make the dough.

 

I’ve been balancing work (the devil.. lol), family, art and cooking.  Can I get 2 extra days to the weekend, please??

Thanks for being here and all your comments. Lots of love to you, my subscribers.. you mean so much to me.

The Coolest Way to use Art Tissue Paper and Stencils by StencilGirl.

Standard

I’m so thrilled to be back (been a long time) with StencilGirl as a guest artist to bring you a cool technique using art tissue paper and stencils.  The hardest part was picking the stencils to work with.  How can I choose from so many great designers? It’s just not fair, you know.  I’m sure you’ll recognize some of them.

Making their appearances are stencils from: Mary Beth Shaw, Michelle Ward, Seth Apter, Traci Bautista, Cecilia Swatton’s, Maria McGuire’s, Terry Stegmiller, Margaret Applin, Jessica Sporn, Carolyn Dube. Sure hope I didn’t forget anyone.

I’ll let me video say the rest and show you how it all develops and how much fun it is.

You must give this a try, but be forewarned.. it’s addicting.

Thank you StencilGirl, again for letting me share one of my passions of mixed media art and my addiction to stencils.

Happy Stenciling!!!

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.

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

Mixed Media Coffee Filter Collage Paper w/Video

Standard

I’ve had a few requests to show how I do some of my mixed media art.  Ask and you shall receive.

I filmed this about two weeks ago.  Then I had troubles with downloading/uploading, which software to use… yada yada yada.

Here is my first edited (poorly) video.  I decided to make a coffee filter collage piece to show you my process from start to finish.  No planning was done.. I just took out a stash of my “stuff” and see where it took me.

I don’t need to write much more here on the blog, as the video will give you all you need.  I used this same process using used dryer sheets or on a piece of fabric (I like muslin).

I hope you enjoy… and I apologize ahead of time for any hiccups in the editing (in addition to a whining dog, no not my husband.. ha ha).  I’m just getting the hang of this. I think little parts got cut out when I did the editing.  I can see that now.  But you get the idea here on adding layers and fun ephemera.

It’s 18 minutes long… so sit back and relax.  Silence all cell phones, as they say in the movie theaters.

Here are some closer still shots of the final piece.

So many uses… cut up your favorites parts and add to your journals and collages. Imagine this as a unique book cover with sewn pages.  Sew it on a canvas bag or add it to a quilt project.  It’s a pretty strong piece by the time you’re done with the layers of fabric, etc. and gel medium.

Click here to see another collage filter I made.

Here is a reminder of what you can do with the full circle filter:   See how I talk about putting this one together HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your compliments, kind comments and some of you who asked for a video on how it put my art together.

Send this along to a friend who might enjoy it.

Please give this a try.. So easy.. I want to see yours.  Send me pictures and I’ll put them on my blog.

Love having fun with you.  More to come.
