Artistic Musings

Hello lovelies! January has come and gone and I was completely unaware of it. How did that happen? I hope everyone has been having a wonderful year so far. My imagination is surely adding to my creative to do list. I've been working on a few new paintings and I plan to share and list them for sale soon.

The ornie above is what I created for my 2010 Christmas tree. I always enjoy creating something new to add each year. Painted and created on canvas and secured with a nice blanket stitch. More ornies like these are in the works, too.

Below is something special I created for my dearest friend Paulette aka

Created using a paper mache box that I painted and altered with a crackle finish. I like the primitive and grungy feel of it. 

In the box, I added a sweet mini album attached together with a binder ring and fiber trims.

Using some of my favorite paintings from 2010, I sized and altered the images and adhered them to chipboard that I layered with decorative paper. Adding sparklies and trinkets with my glue gun. Gotta love that glue gun!

Below is a slideshow of more images and close-ups for you to see. Enjoy!

And to complete the gift to Paulette, I also created another ornie for her. For this one I again used an altered painting using fabric, sequins, and tulle.

Completed with a blanket stitch as well and a beaded chain for a hanger.

Like I mentioned above, I've been painting new girlies lately and I plan to share them soon. Thanks so much for coming to visit!

Before I announce my giveaway winner, I wanted to share the last three angel paintings I created for 2010. This journey of mine so far has been wonderful and I can't wait to see what the new year brings. As many of you know who have followed me from the start, the faces of my girlies and my creative style in general have been in an ever changing mode. It's a process and passion I'll continue to share. Thanks for staying along for the ride! (All 3 paintings already SOLD, thanks!)

I really wish I could give everyone of you a prize, but I could only choose one. Selected by a random number generator. And the lucky winner is...

Diane of, you are the winner of my 3rd BloGIVErsary!!! Yay! Congrats sweetie! Please email me with your address when you get a chance. Enjoy!

Thank you all again! I will be sure to have more giveaways this year.

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)

Happy 2011! 3rd Year BloGIVErsary!!!

Hello lovely bloggers! Happy 2011 to you all! I know I've been MIA for way too long, but I hope to get back on track and continue to share my creative journey with you. With that in mind, I do want to apologize for my delayed responses to your comments, emails and inquiries. Life just gets a bit overwhelming during the Happy Holidays. Now that my concentration is back though, I will respond to you all shortly. Thanks for your understanding!

I still can't believe another year has flown by so quickly. My path so far has been filled with the joys of finding myself as an artist and I want to thank you all so much for accompanying me through my imagination. I really appreciate all the love and support you have given me. It means more than you know.

With that said, today is my 3 Year Blogoversary! Yayyy! And to celebrate this wonderful New Year's Day of new beginnings, a giveaway is in order. One lucky winner will receive this original 6" x 8" painting on canvas board created by me.

This painting was at first created with the One World One Heart Giveaway in mind. When I realized I wouldn't be able to participate in that upcoming event afterall, I knew this angel painting had another destiny in mind to find her new home.

So let's get down to business. The simple rules to participate are as follows:

1. Leave me a comment (on this post only)

2. Share my giveaway button located at the top of this post with my link on your blog for a second entry (Please comment here if you do that too)

3. Become a Follower for a third entry (This includes
current Followers already)

It's that easy!

Polls Close:

11:59 pm PST on Wednesday, January 12, 2011.

Winner will be announced on Thursday, January 13th.

My giveaway is open to everyone with an active blog

Happy New Year's again and Thank you so much for your continued support in my art!

Good Luck to you all!

Lisa :)
