Mixed Media Portrait

Hello lovely bloggers! Thank you so much for all your special
comments from my last post! I really appreciate your visits.
Your magical messages have really motivated me to play more in
my journal.

To keep my creative juices flowing, I've been working on a few
projects lately. Here is one of the finished pieces I just listed in
my etsy shop.

I love the way it turned out. I created it using acrylic paint
along with a crackle treatment on the side. I accessorized
her hair with a flower metal finding that I secured down with
a decorative nail. I also enjoyed embellishing her with rub-on
transfers and self-adhesive bling. Love how it sparkles.


One of my angels was recently added to a magical  etsy treasury called "Angels watching over you". It's always an honor to be
a part of a sweet collection. You can find all the angel goodies
she picked here. Thanks again giftsofcreation!

ALSO, here are a couple of fabulous GIVEAWAYS you don't
want to miss!

The talented Diane of My Art Journal is celebrating her 100th post
with two sweet giveaways. Her work is beautiful! Hurry and sign up here!



My Halloween group, Artistic Halloween Queens Unite is
having a lovely giveaway too! The magical artist Lorraine
of Piecake Primitives has donated one of her special creations
for you to win. You can join in the fun here!

They are both ending very soon... so go GO go!

Thanks so much for visiting! :)

Art Journal Entry

It's been awhile since I played in my art journal.
This page was surely inspired by our visit to the King Tut
exhibition last year at the de Young Museum. The way
everything was displayed was perfect. It really brought me
to another world. So...why so long for the inspiration to kick in?
Well, I was flipping through pages in my journal and saw another
one of those unfinished sketches and I couldn't help myself. I
wanted to experiment with my 3D paints and see if it would
hold well on my pages. It did and the touchable texture it
created is fabulous!

I also wanted an encaustic look without having to warm up
my beeswax, so I added layers of mod podge with a bit of
white paint and went to town with my heat gun. It created
just the primitive look I was going for.

This journal entry is called "Uncaged Heart". I really like
the way it turned out. My art journal is where I enjoy
experimenting and I hope you are inspired to do the same.
Thanks for coming to visit! Have fun with your creativity! :)

This is a mixed media art quilt I recently created.
It was made using an altered vintage image on fabric
that I distressed and frayed. I love the primitive
appearance the whole piece has. Size: 2.5" X 3.5"
If you are interested in more info and photos on this
piece, you can find it in my etsy shop here.

And speaking of etsy, one of my angel paintings was
included in a magical treasury today. Yay! You can
find the "I Want To Fly Away" collection here.
Thank you Onor!

I also won this sweet giveaway from the talented Patsy of A beautiful paper
and fabric flower collage embellished with beads and
hand stitching. Lots of sweet texture too! Be sure to
visit her blog! She shares amazing creations and fun
tutorials. Thanks again Patsy! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)

Whimsical Wednesday

Hello lovely bloggers! I can't believe it's been over two weeks
since my last post. How did that happen? Well...soon after that
post, I got the head cold that refused to go away. The type of
cold where your head feels like it's going to implode when you
cough just a little bit. Ouchie! I am soooo glad to finally be free
of that and also excited to be back here in blogland with all of you
creative cuties. With that in mind, please forgive my tardy responses
to all your special emails and comments. I really appreciate all your
lovely messages and I can't wait to visit all your magical sites and see
what you've been up to.

As for me, I sketched this out sometime last year and totally forgot about it until recently. That is so me. I have tons of sketches just
itching to be painted. I'm definitely glad I found it because I had alot
of fun creating this piece.

Thanks so much for your sweet visit!

Lisa :)
