Mucha Inspired Halloween

It's that time of year again! the days are getting shorter, the air is getting cooler. Halloween is right around the corner. I finally got a little quality time to myself in my studio this weekend, and I've loved every second of it!  

This "Mucha Inspired Halloween Piece" is a mixed media on a 6 1/2 x 15 illustration board. As you know I love all of the Graphics 45 papers and have incorporated the "Rare Oddities Collection" in my art.
I've also included metal gears from Tim Holtz and other metal charms to fit my theme. For depth I used Golden molding paste, and a two part crackle, painted into the design, and a lot of ink line work. finally I sprayed it with a workable fixative and used a matte varnish to finish it off.

I've Been Published!

I'm so excited to be included in the Jul/Aug/Sept issue of Art Journaling by Somerset Studio. There are so many talented artists in this issue. I am honored to be a part of it.

New Beginnings

  It's been a while since I posted anything new on my blog! I've been frustrated with my out dated computer and finally figured out how to post from my I-Pad! Yay! Me! Now I have a lot of catching up to do. The first of the year I started posting my journal pages in the "Documented Life Project"  This is one of my pages! New techniques, new ideas!
