Another Commission Completed!

Here is my latest commission.  My interpretation of St. Cecelia, the Patron Saint of Musicians.  I had so much fun with this one and I'm so happy with how she turned out.

I've also been working on building a set up to make photo and video tutorials and used this piece in a little bit of a test run with the new set up.

More Art Trading

After a quick trip to visit Mom and Dad I'm back and working on some more art trading.  These are for a Zetti themed (one of my all time fave themes) PAT (pick-a-theme) swap at AFA.

Gearing up for an exhausting week of college orientation, way too early mornings and a road trip to see some amazing Drum Corps but hoping to fit some art in there somewhere.

Productive Week

I finished a couple more pieces and they are now available in my Etsy shop.

One of them was inspired by a challenge by Sarah Trumpp in her 50 Canvases in 2014 series.  This particular challenge was to sew on the canvas.  I have a limited bead selection so its not as elaborate as it could have been but I think it adds nicely to the canvas.

Check them out and check out Sarah's awesomeness over at Wonderstrange Arts.

Wishing you all a fabulous 4th!!

Frida Fan Art

I just finished some cards featuring the amazing Frida Kahlo.  I never understood what the fascination was with her until I started reading about her life.  I have to say...I get it now.  I loved these cards so much I seriously debated keeping them myself.  I'm really loving these faces and having so much fun refining and honing them.  I thought they lent themselves quite well to my tribute to Frida and I got to incorporate some of my favorite quotes of hers.

They are now available for sale in my Etsy shop.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Art Trading! My first and forever love!

What can I say about my love for art trading?  Its been an experience that has changed my life, added so much joy and purpose and has put the most incredibly awesome people in my path and in my life.

I had taken a break from it for the first part of the year while I worked on some other projects.  For the summer, I decided to enjoy some time off from must dos and focus on some wanna dos.

I'm participating in a variety of fun swaps and trading marathons.  I'll still be working in my journal and hopefully creating some fun things for my girls to put in their dorm rooms in the Fall.

Here are a few of the fun things I've done so far.
