Welcome

Welcome to my newest blog. What is a kimberline you ask? Well where I live in Portland, Dorset, it is a nickname given to newcomers to the Island. Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here. Hugs Sara

You Probably Think!!!

That I havent done any art for what seems like months.  Well 4 months to be exact but I have been doing something.  Something that has been very challenging for me.  A big big mixed media mermaid that is going to hang proudly on our living room wall.  It has taken me so long because I wanted to make it as perfect as I think I could have and I have never attempted something so big before.  I took all the teachings from Suzi Blu and this is what I came up with.  There are a few pictures.  Oh and the materials that I used are

Lots of mica clear and amber mica.  The colours are amazing just right for a mermaids tale
Distress paint
silver stars
acrylic paints, lots of it
mod podge
Angelinas fibers
shells, and flowers





I wish you could truly see the colour that the mica reflects, all the little rainbows are beautiful when the light catches them. 


The funnest thring.  When I had finished this painting that night, we had a thunderstorm and it was a big one.  The inspiration of this painting was a mermaid bringing down the boat in a storm.  Now it isnt very often that we get thunder and lightening storms where we are.  I thought it fitting that we should have one the night I finally finished the painting
