This is a 12X4 in. canvas. I used metal charms, fun halloween papers, stickers, and a new product that I wanted to try out for the little witches' wings. It's called Clearly for Art Blackout Modeling Film. It's very cool stuff. First I stamped bat wings on it then cut them out. Hit it with my heat gun until the film was soft, then shaped the wings. When it was cooled I hot glued them to the canvas. The great thing about this is if you don't like the way it looks, you just re-heat it. You can do that as many times as you need to. I really like this product!
This is My Daughters best Friend, Sarah! My other daughter! I just fell in love with her profile picture that she posted on facebook. When she posted this photo of her little girl, Pasiley, I knew I had to use them in some art work. I hope she likes it! The next time I see her, I'll be giving her this piece. It's a reminder that I love her and children grow too fast. Enjoy them!!!!!!
This group of ATC's happens to be the last of my ATC Halloween swaps and my favorite. I love these little clowns. When I first read the details of the swap, I wasn't quite sure what a pierrot was. After a little research on google images. So that's what there're called! I knew what they were,
just didn't know the name! Here are my creations, enjoy! and Happy Halloween !
I was born and raised in southern Michigan. I'm blessed with three children, two boys and a girl that range in age from 22-30. I've been married to a wonderful man for the last 24 years. He's been very supportive of my art and has always encourged my artistic pursuits. Even though I have a fine arts degree I still consider myself largely a self taught mixed media artist. Inspiration for my art comes from many different places. Old family photos, my children, pets, and especially our garden, it's a passion that both Thom and I share.
