Steampunk Fashion
This is my entry for the Fashion Challenge.
I did this piece on a 6X6 canvas, "Graphics 45 papers" Tim Holtz gears and wings that I purchased from a bead store that I cut in half. Acrylic paint, and lots of pen work! Fun and a great stress reliever!!!!!

Men with wings!

I found another new site for some art challenges, this one is called "4X4 Friday" and this weeks challenge was give a man some wings!  That's just what I did hope you like it!

Creative Souls "ATC" Swap

"Dress Forms, that is the new theme for our Creative Souls Jan/Feb "ATC"
 swap. I had alot of fun with this theme. I made this one. One for my swap partner, it will be a surprise when they get it.  Also a  6X6 canvas that I may use for another challenge. I really liked this theme, The Graphics 45 papers "Steam punk Debutante Collection" were perfect for this theme. The Tim Holtz gears worked really well. I hope everyone enjoys this!

Altered Mona and her Little Dog

This weeks theme for Sunday Postcard Art was "Altered Mona"
So here's my take on that! Of course I had to add Gidget in the mix! She looks a little worried sitting on Mona's lap! Below is a close up of the inkwork on the  butterflies.

All About Style

Yes it's all about "STYLE" and Gidget, was the inspiration for the Dec/Jan, ATC swap on Creative Souls "Our Beloved Pets" I made two cards for this swap one for my partner and one for me to keep!  The subject, Smidge, that's one of her nick names, is  close to my heart and yes, she is loved! She's neurotic, but very lovable.
She hates the rain ,snow and cold, needs a coat to go outside and has to have a blanket to crawl under. She is a sweetie and Thom and I love her!

Sunday Postcard Art

  Well its a new year! "Happy New Year everyone!" With the New Year comes some resolutions, one of mine for this year is to network a little more. I need to see what other artists are doing and where I fit in. 
 An artist friend that I follow displays her work on a site called "Sunday post Card Art". Every week there is a new theme and you have a week to create a 4X6 Post card for it. Yea! this gives me the opportunity to get some feedback!!!! The theme for this weeks card is "Celestial" (Sun, moon, stars, etc....) This is the card I am submitting. Looking forward to the next week!
