She will move mountains

Hello everyone! Here is my latest angel painting. It's a mixed media piece I created on a 16" x 20" stretched canvas. I started out with painting the mountains first. They were just plain white mountains calling out to me. I didn't know which direction I was heading for until I added the angel and knew what she was looking at. 

Sometimes you just need the pull of inspiration to come from somewhere. And that is what my angel did for me. Regardless which direction life takes her, she will move mountains. 

Creative Blessings! :)

Halloween Giveaway Winner!

Happy November everyone! Here is the original Annabel Lee painting I created from the Halloween party. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do for the party this year until I remembered this poem. For those of you who didn't see the altered version of this painting, check it out here

I really got into the zone when I painted this piece. By reading and re-reading the poem Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe. Painting and stamping out the sweet haunting words that he created. It brought me creative chills.

Now let's not forget the reason of this post! 

I really do appreciate all your sweet comments. I used a random number generator to pick the lucky winner.

Congrats Janine! YAY!!! 
You are the winner of my Masquerade Muse Ornie! 
Please email me with your address when you get a chance.

Thanks to all of you who participated in the fun event!

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)

Halloween Party 2012

Annabel Lee
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
Edgar Allan Poe
This poem always makes me tear when I read it. I just can't help it.

She will make a difference

Here's my latest mixed media portrait created on a 5" X 7" canvas. 
I love the way she turned out. Full of touchable texture.

I added a few fabric flowers and a paper leaf. The flowers are centered with some brads. 
I also stitched some sequins down around them with french knots.

Hope you like her!
You can find her in my shop!

Thanks for visiting!  :)

Hello everyone! Here is my latest angel painting. You can find her in my shop
She was created on a 6" X 6" stretched canvas. 

My work in progress photo shows a few shots of how I painted her up and it also shows 
what I stamped and stitched together. The banner was created using canvas and felt.

For those kindred souls...

Have faith & believe in yourself.

Happy October!

(Sold, thanks!)

Hello My Pretties! I can't believe it is already October. How did that happen? Here is a witch pin I created using an altered image. I gave her a light acrylic wash in green for her skin color, of course. Also, a little jingle bell dangles at the bottom. Below is the witch cottage pincushion I created a while back. Both of these creations are now in my shop! :)

Stuck in the Clouds

Here's the finished angel painting from the WIP I shared from this post here. More often than not, I find my head stuck in the clouds. Reality checks are always needed for this mixed media artist! 

Creative daydreamers like me drift off using our imaginations without even realizing it. At least for me this is how it can be. Jumping from project to project creating goodies that sometimes can give you less focus on other matters at hand. Hey, I admit I need reminding to watch the new season of GLEE too! And having the people you love to help ground you with shows... along with many more important matters are always a plus. :)

You can find this new angel painting now in my shop!

Blessings to you,
Lisa :)
