Update and Surprise!

Hello my lovely bloggers! I can't believe it's been so long since
I've posted. I just wanted to update you on my art as well as a
little surprise at the end of this post. I did manage to create a
few paintings that kept me busy while I was away.

As you already know, I love using mixed media in most of my art.
These two girlies turned out super cute. They were created on
stretched canvas. The painting on the left is a sweet angel that is
no longer available : ) ... of course as you can see at the top of my
blog, I couldn't resist in making her my new banner. I really enjoyed
creating both of these paintings. The angel was created using layers
of collage papers, acrylic paint and a crackle treatment for her wings.
She also has a tiny leather flower I added to her headband with a brad.

(SOLD, thanks!)

Both paintings were sanded and distressed for the prim appearance
I love. The portrait piece above has an added lace trim as well as
a handmade leather flower centered with a decorative nail. You
can find her now listed in my etsy shop here.


Before I share more of my art, I wanted to thank
sweet and talented Kiki aka Victoria Pettella of
for including me amongst many special artists in her
post "Creative Spotlight: You Inspire me..". Kiki manages
a few magical blogs where she inspires me with her
words and creations all the time. You can find her lovely
feature here. Thank you again Kiki!


(SOLD, thanks!)

Here is another piece I created while I was away from blogland. A
cutie angel portrait. Her eyes are a bit larger than the ones I usually
do. I love the way she turned out.

This one is also full of touchable texture! You can find her now
on ebay here.


And the last piece I wanted to share with you today
is my newest witch painting. I think she turned out
spooktacular. Like the angel piece above,
this cutie witch was created on canvas board.

The witch painting is packed with mixed media including
vintage dictionary pages I used as the collage background
as well as to make handmade flowers with too. She is
embellished with metallic paint and adhesive bling.

And last but not least...

I wanted to THANK all my kindred spirits that commented on my last post!!! It really meant
alot. And for that reason alone, these
special commenters were added to a ...

Yes, that's right! My first surprise
giveaway! Each and every one of
you really made my day with your

So with that said, who won?

Yay! Congrats Micki! You are the winner of my giveaway!
