Gothic Fairy Valentine

this is my newest piece of art. I was not feeling the love on Valentines day so decided I love the idea of love but didn’t want to feel bad for not having that certian someone to spend the day with. I made this peice then took one of my best friends out to lunch and we went shopping.. you can’t get any better than that!

My first painting

here is my first acrylic painting, I added some glittery chipboard as well, I love the color blue and this paint is so very blue I just love it, I also used 3 different Lumiere paints for the sparkle on the inside of the flowers, If you have never used Lumiere its a great paint but if you spill it on your clothes it will  never come off!

You Exhaust Me, ATCS

here is my newest creation, an ATCS I made before my boyfriend broke up with me 2 weeks before Christmas this year.

You Exhaust Me! ATCS

I made this using a regular playing card, acrylic paint, stickers and an image off a royalty free CD I got a long time ago.

My boyfriend and I had just gotten into yet another fight and I was just getting emotionally exhausted just seeing him and fighting, so I was not terribly surprised with him breaking up with me, actually we hardly spoke weeks before that but he put the final touch on it.

Its sad when things don’t turn out the way you expect but in the long run its better to be single than unhappy!

my christmas gift to my daughter

my daughter and granddaughter making "O" face

my daughter and granddaughter making "O" face

I made this item on a canvas that was already painted with gesso. I used red and white paint to make a shade of pink I liked ( I don’t usually like pink!). Then added some scrapbook paper, an image of my daughter at 1 1/2 making a cute little face and on of her daughter making a somewhat same face. We call it “O” face and I have to say its very cute in person!

Then I added some lace and put that down with gel medium, a note on gel medium, I love this stuff. I holds just about anything and I have the gloss since I like my art to shine, it never disapoints! I added some stickers and 3d embelishments and letters and as a final touch I embossed gold glittery embossing powder to the outside of the peice.

I think it turned out rather well, I use to say I was not much of an artist but really I think we all have artist blood in us we just need to let it out and have fun with it.

I have a couple more ATCs to post later, I just made them for fun not for any swap or anything.

thanks for looking,

here is my entry for maggies monday musings! It seems rather plain but I like the gold leafing pen around the outside which you can’t see very well in the scan. I like the black and red.
I am very new to expressing myself with art so any comments are welcome! Any new ideas too for that matter!

I did this for Halloween, I just sit and stare at a blank atc card until I just get frustrated and put stuff on it that I like, then I get more into the groove and insperation just seems to come from staring at it for awhile, Does this even make sense? lol!
