Haunted Steampunk Spells Mini Book

Just a couple pictures of the mini book I've created for an upcoming class.  I used Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells paper to create this bewitching little beauty!

Beeswax canvas

 Here are a couple of mixed media sealed with beeswax canvases I made as some birthday gifts for friends.  I have neglected to post about them for over a month.  The kitty canvas was for a 12 year old girl who loves cats, and the "She who would fly" canvas for her 18 year old sister. I used newsprint gift wrap (found in the dollar section at Target) for the background of the kitty canvas.  It is all beeswax, with napkins, clip art from Lisa's altered art, and a bit of doily.  Oh, and some cool tinsel ribbon.  The "Fly" canvas started out as a mixed media piece with lots of paint and ink.  I also collaged on some napkin bits, clip art from Lisa's altered art and sewing pattern tissue.  The dragonfly stamp is from Stampers Anonymous Classics #1 set.

Fun with Memory Glass and Frames

Here is a quick fun little project using Memory Glass and Memory Frames!  I trapped a peacock feather between two pieces of Memory Glass, temporarily secured with tape. (just a couple small pieces of tape to keep the glass and feather in place).  I trimmed the feather so that no part of it  extended past the glass.  I then carefully inserted the glass sandwich into the memory frame while removing the temporary tape.  Tah-Dah!  Quick and easy pendant gift!  This project took less than 10 minutes to complete, and looks pretty fabulous!

Just starting on a new canvas.  Got her sketched out and lightly color blocked with PanPastels.  This is an big painting for me, and I feel a little out of my safe zone.  Also it is a request and a gift.....Oh the pressure!  The mermaid image is based on a rubber stamp that I have, I figured it would give me a nice starting point.  I plan to document the process here and see how this painting evolves.  Alright everybody, hold your breath, its time to dive in!
