Halloween ATC'S

Hi Friends,

October just started but it is going along quickly!
Really soon it will be Halloween!
I just made these 4 ATC's for an online swap. The theme was " Goblins, Ghosts and Graveyards"  I had fun making them and up close and personal they are 3D. The photos really don't show the 3 D effect that well.

Hope you like them.
Hugs to All!

WIN A FREE CLASS

The Road To Radiance: Day One!


Today kicks off a nine day series leading up to Radiant Faces' Opening Day on October 1st! Every day of our Nine Days will include a chance to win one of three free seats in the class, so keep coming back!

Today I want to introduce you to Jane Davenport, our first stop on the Road To Radiance!

Screen Shot 2014-09-23 at 10.38.08 AM
What I love about Jane's work is that she is adept at creating faces with a great deal of emotional range. Some of her faces are whimsical, some thoughtful, some wistful, some mischievous, but they all emote through the features she gives them. It's as though her creations have lives off the page. I can imagine them having sock drawers and stories and best friends and adventures.
Jane will be joining us in Radiant to teach a class in the painterly style. She says "I selected the ‘Nymph’ as my theme for Radiant Faces because in our legends they embody transformation. Being neither one thing or another they are restless and curious about the world round them. I went to the Tate to see these paintings because when I think of a ‘Nymph’ these are the images that come to my mind. Ethereal faces fill of yearning for what is to come and what is left behind."
Jane's class will go live along with all the rest on October 1st. I will be stepping up to the plate on October 10th with my interpretation of her class.
There will be a lovely interview with Jane in the classroom, as well, so you won't want to miss it!

Halloween Paper Dolls

Hi Friends,


Hope you are all doing well and hopefully enjoying the beginning of Autumn weather. :)
Here in Florida it is still warm and rainy! But the rain is always welcomed especially by the flowers, trees, birds and lawn! :)
I can't believe that September is almost over.....only 7 more days left and then October will be here.
With that in mind, I have been working on some Halloween art.
I love making Paper Dolls and just made these two for an online swap. One had to be a Boy and the other a Girl with removable masks.
The Girl , I named Pumpinella (she has a pumpkin costume) and the Boy, I named Catspurr  (he has a Cat costume) :)
                                   THIS IS PUMPINELLA. DRESSED AS A "PUMPKIN!"
                                           THIS IS CATSPURR. DRESSED AS A "CAT!"
                     
Hope you like them.
Hugs

ART DOLLS

Hi Friends,




Hope you are all doing well and having a lovely day so far. :)


Hope none of you have been affected by the floods in Arizona and in Nevada!


Over here on the Treasure Coast of Florida things have been wet. It has rained almost everyday
but the trees, flowers and lawn are happy! :)




Here are two Art Dolls that I made. The first one is "The Dancer with her Tambourine".  and the second one is the "Keeper of Secrets!" with his key around his arm. :)


Hope you enjoy them and please leave a comment

HANDMADE COLLAGE ENVELOPES

Hi Friends,


Hope you are all doing well and enjoying your day!
Recently I was in an Envelope Swap, so I made 10 envelopes and received 10 back.
I love making envelopes! :)
When I receive a decorated envelope (Art Envelope) in the mail, it really makes me happy! So when I make them and send them to friends, I am sure that is the first thing they open from their stack of mail......I DO! :)
Here are Four of the Ten, I made:
