HoneyHouse canvas

I created this one of a kind canvas piece for my friends who just released their fourth CD. The group is called HoneyHouse and they are a fabulous group of ladies with a true talent. If you haven't heard them please check them out. They sing from the soul and I think that's what touches me artistically. This quote can be found on the inside jacket of the new CD. I always find it crazy how I can see something and instantly the picture pops in my head. That is what happened here. I'm trying to challenge myself more by doing some sketching which I did on the background. I also drew hair for the first time and am amazed it came out ok. I gave this girl some Texas hair....big!  Lol!  I presented this to the group at their CD release party and they loved it. There was tears and lots of hugs. I'm so glad this came together like it looked in my head. I have more projects coming. Thanks for coming by!

Family Mixed Media Canvas Piece

Welcome back!!  Here is another 12 x 12 canvas piece. I've had this idea in my head for awhile. This piece made with acrylic paints and paper. I enjoyed creating all the little details. The more I kept thinking I was done, the more I kept adding. This is a messy process but that's what makes it fun. It came out way better than I thought. I'm taking this to be sold in a local gift shop. They have been buying from me for a little over a year and have been really supportive, but the best things is they have had an easy time selling my items. Mixed media is definitely an obsession, I can't seem to get enough. I have several more pieces in the process. I can't wait to show you. Come back soon!

Invitation Season

It's always fun this time because the order for invitations come rolling in. Orders will vary from wedding to baby showers. This current order was for wedding reception invitations. I think personalized invitations just give it that special touch. I definitely have to thank everyone who has placed orders. I appreciate everyone's support. Well onto the next order....

Father's Day Cards

As you can see it was a very busy Father's Day season. I appreciate all the orders. I was able to just play and create. I gathered a few details from my customers and created these all one of a kind cards. Everyone loved their cards, and I even had a few dads come up to me a few days later and say they thought their cards rocked. I love the fact that when I take orders for cards people will ask for everything from basic to mixed media. Gives me lots of playing ground. I'm so lucky!  The wheels are spinning for the next project. Thanks again everyone for stopping by!!  Till next time!

Recipe Book

I pulled this project together from a class I took several years ago. Like a lot of you I've taken classes then never finish the project. I had a friend asking for a recipe book she wanted to give as a graduation present. I saw this unfinished item and knew it would be perfect, so I just revamped it a little and put some of my personal touches on it and it came out awesome. I thought it was a coincidence that I had these recipe cards and they match the paper perfectly. My friend thought it came out awesome and she couldn't wait to fill it with her yummy recipes. Very happy with this project!  Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.

Mother's Day Cards

Happy Mother's Day!!  It's been a busy season as you can see!  I received quite a few orders for cards. I got to create some really fun cards. I think I can say most people know me for my flowers which is shown on these cards. I also got to play with my mixed media obsession. My favorite of course is the card I made for my mom. It's the mixed media card with all the hearts. I've titled this card "Her Love Overflows". It fits my mom perfectly. She definitely loves me and my sister through the good and bad. Her love is unconditional. I'm feel so lucky to call her mom!  Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon more projects to come.

Mixed Media Canvas Spring

A new canvas piece I just created. Used all my favorite materials paints, mist, metal, modeling paste and paper. I also used some cute bird chip board pieces from Maya Road. I created the tree using my Cricut then covered it using vintage sewing pattern paper. I love all the texture on this piece. It's so hard to focus on one area, it seems like different things keep catching your eye. I'm hoping to show this piece to a local gift shop in hopes that they may want to start carry my pieces. I'm on my way back to my craft studio and begin working on another piece. I'll show it soon. Thanks for stopping by!
