Love is Patient, Love is Kind.

Hello creative cuties! I took a little break with posting,
so I wanted to thank you sooooo much for all the birthday
love you sent my way last week. I really appreciate it! I
even received beautiful winged treasures that flew their
precious little hearts to me in the mail. I am so grateful
to have kindred friends like you. Thank you all truly from
the bottom of my heart! :)

Here is the completed WIP from my last post.

It's another mixed media original portrait art quilt painting.
Wow, that's a mouth full, huh? I think that's why I'll continue to
call this a Portrait Art Quilt instead.

I so enjoyed creating this sweet quiltie. She will be for
sale soon. I haven't listed on ebay for quite some time and
if all goes as planned, I will be listing her there tomorrow.

I hope you guys like it!

You Dazzle Me

I wanted to give a big *Thank You* for all the touching
messages about us getting published. Your lovely
comments and emails have really made our week even
more special. I look forward to visiting you all shortly.

It's been awhile since I created a card and this is what
I came up with. I really enjoy using mixed media and
it made creating this card even more fun to play with.

If you are a fan of the Twilight Saga like
I am, then this card will make perfect sense
and hopefully make your inner teenage self smile.

I couldn't resist using these adorable stamps from
The Greeting Farm.

I also wanted to spice it up a bit more and made it
into a pop-up card! I love the way it turned out.

You can't really tell from these photos, but I didn't forget
to add glitter on Edward. He needed to sparkle for his Bella,
of course! The little apple cut out completed it all. I couldn't
help from giggling when I added it. Hope you guys like it!

Until next time...Thanks so much for visiting! And just in
case you didn't know...You Dazzle Me :)

Great News!

Our collaborative Alice in Wonderland inspired paintings
have been published in Somerset Studio Gallery!
Marc and I are over the moon with excitement to have been
chosen. We both enjoy all the Stampington publications, so
this is totally awesome! Yippie!

Marc and I have only done three collaborative paintings so
far. They are the ones you see on my side bar. We hope to
make many more in the future.

Last November, I ended a Mr. & Mrs. Lectura's next
collaboration painting poll. Just in case you didn't see it...

Here are the results:

8%- I like Surprises
9%- More Halloween
15%- Greek Mythology
17%- Ancient History
23%- Ooh, Another Fairytale
28%- Under the Sea

So as listed above, Under the Sea was the top choice from
all you lovely visitors. Thanks ever so much for your sweet
opinions! We appreciate all the encouragement & support you
give us!

Being published surely gives us the boost to make another
collaboration painting as soon as we can. Thanks for coming
to visit! Have a great week ahead!

Creative Blessings,
Marc & Lisa :)
