If I could dress up like this for Halloween I’d do it in a heartbeat! Not exactly a Halloween painting but festive nonetheless. This Gyspy Rose is delicately decked out in pinks and purples and flowers galore! She’s got the grooviest headdresses around too! Traveling the world and discovering all that is life along the way. What are you wearing for Halloween!? I’d love to see your costumes or hear what you’ve got up your trick or treat sleeve! In the meantime the candies in a decorative bowl by the front door just waiting till nightfall and all the ghouls and boys to show up! May you drown in chocolate tonight! =)
*Frida Cat* makes me super happy. She just turned out so bright and cheerful. She’s in her Halloween costume ready for trick or treating. She’s amidst the bright Day of the Dead flowers and has a gorgeous pink sparkling flower on her cat hat. This has a lot of collage elements including leaves cut from paper napkins, vellum flower confetti, collage papers, a puffy metalic pink heart, rubberstamped flowers, and teeny tiny pink flower fingernail art stickers. This is by far one of my favorite 4x4s so far. I have 2 more 4×4 wooden birch canvases left. One is done, (and will be posted tomorrow) and one will need a sanding due to a nasty hazardous accident with some glue. Heheh! (The biohard dangers of art!) I’m now working on the last of my sheet of birch I had cut and the last of the pieces are 3 3/8x 3 3/8. The smaller the pieces of wood get the more challenging it gets to create art on them. And who doesn’t like a good challenge!? Come back tomorrow to see how Dorothy turned out! =)
Checkers is a mini 4×4 painitngs done with festive seasonal Kleenex, collage paper, chipboard, rhinestone sticker, mini heart square stickers and beadz. She’s bright and cheerful and has fun blend of colors to brighten any office cube, desk space, locker, or cozy corner. She’d be sweet on an easel or hung from a cord. I have 2 mini paintings that I’m currently putting the finishing touches on to share with you over the next two days. I’m SURE to have even more done as the week progresses. We’re just kickin’ back and enjoying the cool October Saturday that we’ve been blessed with. The autumn leaves are a gorgeous array of yellows, oranges, and reds. I’ll be taking some pictures of them soon to share with you. With Halloween around the corner I’ll be bringing out a few fun decorations to make the next week more festive! What costume are you picking this year for the spooky celebration of CANDY!?
Who needs hair when you can have leaves! She looks like a little artichoke girl all decked out in green amidst the greenery of her garden. Everyone needs a leaf hat when gardening! This 4×4 has the use of stencils, rubberstamps, collage elements, glitter glue, sparkle glaze, chipboard and yummy swirls and smears of colors. The sides and back are painted green and she’s ready for varnishing. She’s going in my pile of minis to finish after I’ve completed all the mini’s I’ve got the wood for. I have four going at the moment drying on my desk and I have the wood for six more. I’ll be busy into late next week completing mini paintings. I’m having a great time with them and will string em up with fun fur and wire and beads when they are all completed. What mini is your favorite so far!? Happy TGIF and have a great weekend! God Bless. =)
Flower Shower is another mini painting ready to be strung with fun fur. Once I’ve finished all my mini’s I’ll do my varnishing and drilling assembly line style. Then I’ll post them on Etsy and say my prayers. This blue and yellow piece has flowers cut from paper doilies and painted a pale yellow and a shimmering blue. I used rhinestones and beadz to add centers to the flowers as well as add dimensions. Her hair is painted tan using acrylic paint and topped off with pastel pencils to add extra softness. She’s just a soft sweet gal standing happily in a shower of pastel flowers! Happy Thursday! Tomorrow’s mini painting has a fun twist. Come back and see how I wind up the week!
