Hello? Are you there?

I'm here . . . finally. Lots of irons in the fire take lots of tending I guess. It should all settle down soon but a few more crazy days of random projects. Exciting things coming soon!

Here's just a bit of art I've managed to make lately . . .

Portrait of Somebody's Somebody

This is a small 5 x 7 collage using a lady from FrenchKissed.etsy.com, wings from Itkupilli.etsy.com, and scrolls from Fidlette Designs. The lady was hand colored. All other elements are from Holliewood Studios and used with a commercial license. Kits used were Old School, Love and War, and What's Up Tiger Lilly. All pieces were reprinted and hand trimmed with scissors, edged with ink and highlighted with pastel.

Fairy of the Nite, Strictly Business

This is a large 8 x 10 mixed media collage using a face from DigitalCollageSheets.etsy.com and body from Graby Braun of gaby cajubrasil.blogspot.com. The wings are from Itkupilli.etsy.com. All other elements are from the The Thing Finder Kit from Holliewood Studios. These 30 plus pieces were reprinted, hand cut with scissors, and recolored by hand before attaching to the background.

I get the best mail! Here's a skinny from my pal Lorraine of Creative Daily blog. You'll see that not only did she send me this scrumptious fabric skinny, but an equally lovely fabric envelope that wrapped it. And, she sent me fabric pieces too as I had told her that I am going to try some fabric pieces soon. Oh, I have been so late in posting this, but I have delighted in having it on my desk to see and feel everyday.

And I got a lovely bookmark from my guardian angel, Roc of What's Up Roc blog. She has just about the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met and her art always tickles my soul. She is one of my most favorite people in the world so every piece I manage to weasel out of her is very special to me.

For a lovely blog post that will make you take pause, visit my friend Trudi at Two Dresses Studio. Here's the link . . . http://twodressesstudio.blogspot.com/2010/04/something-to-think-about.html

Have a great week everyone!
