I find that pinterest has alot of interesting things to find on its site. I have found great recipes, great decorating ideas, cute animals, lots of art and super super quotes! This quote I found last week and it really just hit me in the heart. I LOVE this quote. It is ME. It explains so much to me...
I took a watercolor paper and drew up my design idea after putting on the quote. using scrapbook paper scraps, in pinks and browns I covered the page , and her dress. I painted the girl with acrylics and I decided to make the wings by using my modeling paste and my art trowl so its a fun texture and really looks like feathers. I took an old frame from the thrift store and pianted it white. Think it makes the painting pop and the wings really pop. I hope you like my new piece!

new mixed media canvas. I love me a cup of cappuccino! So I had to make this canvas! I started out mod podging definitions out of an old dictionary for coffee, java, mocha...you can see one pretty good at the top of the page on the right side. I used lots of color with acrylic paints, and some ink. using a piece of paper cut to fit inside the cup, I used modeling paste and swirled it around like the foam and let it dry. Then I added some paint to make it look even more like the foam! Using a coffee mug I dipped the bottom in coffee colored paint and pressed it on the canvas. Adding a cute saying and a pretty butterfly! I hope it sells!
