Oops!

The Power in Her Scars

Step by step art journaling a stenciled face with a big Oops with a BIG message

While art journaling, this scar wasn't a mistake, it was and Oops (Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly). And it had a very strong message for me. Scars aren't always seen but every person has them.  Maybe they shouldn't be hidden but shared instead.  Maybe they aren't something "ugly" but a reminder of the journey.   Random stenciling [...]

I went too far.  I was just playing around on cardboard and was really becoming very very happy with what was developing.  So I kept going...and then I went too far. Does that ever happen to you? Was that a mistake?  Nope, not at all.  It was an Oops, an Outstanding Opportunity that Presented Suddenly.  The [...]

There's no spell check in art.  Once you paint a word there aren't any squiggly red lines alerting you to a misspelling.  Or a quick delete button to fix it. So what did I do when I had a typo? Nothing.  It's just an Oops.  Well, I did laugh at myself...I have always been a [...]

The Tale of a Halloween Oops Card

The Tale of a Halloween Oops Card

Turning this  Gelli print in to a card was supposed to be a quick and easy.  Then there was an Oops thanks to my handwriting.  Then another. That probably doesn't surprise you one bit.  I make all sorts of mistakes, I mean Oopsies, as I play.  It didn't go as planned but every Oops was [...]

It Was a Conspiracy and My Muse Was Out to Get Me thumbnail

It was a conspiracy.  I'm not making this up.  I am not crazy.  It was a total conspiracy from my muse to get me playing.  She wanted me away from the computer screen with a jumbo to-do list and into the paints! When I saw the challenge over at Art Journal Journey, I just couldn't stop [...]

Bloopers are just Oops's (what is the plural of Oops?).  Things don't always go as planned...but that is what makes it fun! Well, after you finishing laughing (and you are welcome to laugh at me or with me on this one) be sure to check out the workshop giveaway! http://youtu.be/N2tNCi3YLBg Watch Bloopers from One Pull Wonders [...]

Painting Flower Pots…Learn From My Mistakes thumbnail

I wanted color, lots of color, all summer long.  The plants are pretty but there are times when they aren't in full bloom and I wanted color all the time.  So I used an afternoon painting flower pots.  Oops... What you are seeing is the 2nd try with the paint....the first time I used exterior house [...]

Spray Paint, Stencils, and an Overspray Oops thumbnail

It's summertime here.  Kids think of the pool.  I think of spray painting outside. As I brought my Liquitex spray paints out to the picnic table, I knew there was going to be an Oops.  There always is with me.  The Oops today was a gift that let me see overspray in a new way.     I covered [...]

The Stencil Talked to Me

The stencil talked to me. It had a very important message that I needed to be reminded of at just the right time. Too much leftover paint on the palette led me to some very fast and somewhat sloppy stenciling with the  Use Your Words stencil. Notice all the paint that ran under it.  I adore that because [...]

  This little  stenciled ornament should be called Oops.  Why?  Because there was one after the other while I was making this using Sue Pelletier's Loose Dress stencil over at StencilGirl.  This was supposed to be a little purse/bag to give as a gift...then an Oops happened so that wasn't possible...My carefully thought out plan [...]
