My Art

So as I get back into the swing of creating pretty projects and swapping again, I decided to partake in my first challenge.  I am absolute adoring fan of Graphic 45 and so what better way to kick off my venture then to enter their September Challenge and I used their Happy Haunting collection that is being discontinued.   I've got to get out there and snag up some more this collection before you can't get it anymore as it is utterly adorable.  Here are pictures from many different angles of my creation.  I used cardboard boxes (I always keep cardboard around because it makes a great medium for art projects) to make the platform and house and used the paper collection along with a few other elements to create the scene.  Unfortunately I couldn't get any really good pictures of the inside, which I wished I could have because I lined the back wall with one of their papers that has pumpkins on it and cut out one of the little witches and put her in there along with a ghost.  I used Liquitex light modeling paste to make the stone pathway and brick roof.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.  I had a ton of fun making it, now if I can only keep the kitties from trying to play with it.

So now, it's off to the little studio to get working on my next challenge due by the end of this month.  I better get cracking.  Thanks for stopping by!


So I thought I would give you a little tasted of what I've been working on.  I have taken some photos of the Ziegfeld Follies Girls, which I love, and have enhanced them for use in another project I will be finishing later this week.  Let me know what you think.

I'm really liking how they are turning out.  If all goes well and the quality of print is as good as the digital I may be in luck.  I'm almost finished and then I can start on the project I plan to incorporate these images into tomorrow.  Check back later.


So I've been learning about graphite and the first lessons I had to complete were making a gray scale, crosshatching, and making a sphere.  Tedious work and not much fun, but very educational.  Now on to funner things.  Here is my first eye:

And here is my first nose:

And my first lips:

Here they are all together in my art journal.  They were done separately so they are meant to not make a face.

Here's another fun little thing in my art journal:

They aren't done yet.  There are going to be two other princesses on the left page and then some more work on the background.  They are a rough draft for a children's book I'm working on.  They are only preliminary.
