artistcellar stencils!

Just dropping in to show you these awesome new stencils I got at the artistcellar store.  Sacred Hearts Series... 4
I rubbed some acyrlics on an old music score sheet and white cs, then stenciled over it with white wash.  I did some doodling with a black permanent pen and the sentiment is from the computer.  Lastly I sewed around the edges and mounted on a painted canvas board (6x6).  Not sure if i will frame this or not...
below is just a quick card I made to try the stencil out when i got fun! Acyrlics...
Cant wait to use the other 2.  Thanks for looking  :)

GOSH...time to post here! tyou !

Life happens when you are busy making other plans....John Lennon....
Happy Spring!  After a long rough Winter..and unplanned madness...We need some fun creative time!
Starting with a post card made for a good friend of mine....

 I used an image by Maria at the Stampotique store called "upward bound" it :) I shmeared some acrylics on mixed media with an old credit card -(Strathmore) paper, stenciled (Julie Balzer) clouds and stamped the bunny.  The sentiment is Pinterest inspired.

Doesnt EVERYONE NEED "carrot" from the Stampotique store this time of year???  Carrot is stamped , cut out and colored with Copics for this card. post card for the post card swap on the "roc nicholas" facebook group! 
I had to use "roc's angel"   LOVE this angel!

journaling along this year...

Progressing along this year with my journaling.  This is a page that I did journaling along with Effy Wild "my morning routine" in mind...
I started with some "card scrapes" of acrylics on a mixed media paper that had been gessoed.  Then I even painted on a few stripes with a brush.  The book print scraps added after with collage pauge (Tracy Bautista- love it) and then I drew the girl with a pencil and sharpie.  I wanted her hair a bit transparent so I used what I had on hand...dylusions teal with a paint brush.  After , her face is done with some TH sandal paint and some Americana acrylic lavender.  I gave her a dress of torn book print and made her eyes with a black pen and marker.  Did some doodling and lettering and ofcourse I used my white uniball pen.   This was so fun..I think I could do this for hours!
Still arting  along with my Documented life pages and this journal- Thanks for looking!
**plugging this in to  "art journaling every day" with Julie Balzer  and paint party Friday.

Valentine postie!

Gotta get a few Valentines out!  Starting with a "roc" inspired post card here..
I started with some gessoed mixed media paper that was cut 4x6 size.  I sprayed some dylusions. :)
I used my "scalloped lace border" stamp on a scrap of gelli paper and cut it out.  I used "stacked love" printed directly on the card and colored with Prisma color markers.  The stars and hearts were stenciled on and I did some doodling with a white uniball pen. ( The arrows are a fun wheel-stamp- not sure who makes it cuz I have had it for quite some time. )
Images are by roc Nicholas and can be purchased at the Stampotique store!
Have you heard about the "documented life" project?
I am working on it and hope I can keep it up!  If you haven't checked it out- you should..its free and fun!
Here we were to use a "selfie" and since I don't have many pics of myself,  I used this one of me in kindergarten.  The background is stencils and lots of acyrlics.

Below I am sharing my mini-moleskin journal for " on the go art".  It is a great way to doodle and make a wee bit of art every day.
I just made some notes of my week visiting family..

Thanks for looking!

"here's the story"

by Roc Nicholas at Stampotique!

When I finished this card all I could think of was trying to explain to someone something strange that had happened!  lol  This may tell you a little bit about my life  !

The background is Dylusions and acrylics thru a stencil.  The "boxes" are scraps
                                  of painty papers and I did a little sewing.  I stamped her on a separate
                                  piece of dp to paper piece my card.  Her hair is white uniball pen.
                                  This also fits the Stampotique "star challenge"
                                   Thanks for looking!
