Steampunk Ammonite

Tonight I felt like doing something steampunkish. I haven't actually sat down and done a piece of artwork in a while. I seem to be going and doing so much lately. In fact, there could be big changes in my life. We will just have to wait and see. In the meanwhile, enjoy my steampunk creation!

My artwork has been published in the DeviantMuse!!

I've been published in the September issue of the DeviantMuse!!!! Recently I took a challenge at Deviant Scrap that was sponsored by Marta Van Eck. The challenge was to create a book cover using Marta's kits and the theme was "Fairy Tale." If you were in the top three, your book cover would be published in the September issue of DeviantMuse. Now, this being my first challenge and having to compete with all the very talented artists at Deviant Scrap, I really didn't believe I had a chance to be published. But I took the challenge anyway. Just one more step in helping me to be more creative. Being a HUGE "Jane Eyre" fan, I just had to do a take on my favorite book! Well, below are the results! Was I ever surprised to learn my book cover was one of the top three!!

The Butterfly Fish

I just love the images that Land of Nod Studios gives away each Friday. Recently she opened an etsy shop and when she had this image for sale on one of her collage pages, I just had to have it! I also purchased some of her French letter digital images while I was there. I would recommend you stop by to see what all she has to offer!

Wishing and To Be or Not To Be!

I'm really enjoying putting together all the elements to make my latest digital artwork. It reminds me so much of paper dolls. I loved paper dolls when I was little, as you had so many different clothes to choose from. Quite awhile back I had purchased some digital pieces from Cemerony and they just seemed to work great with my digital pieces from Tumblefish Studio. Below are the results!

Dancing in the Rain and Alice in the Land of Zetti!!

Marsha at Tumblefish Studio has been a life saver for me recently. I learned the trouble with my elbow and hand going numb was from tennis elbow. Of course, work only made it worse. So, I quit doing my digital art for a while to help the healing process. Then I was just tired by the end of the day and didn't really want to think about creating. I loved Marsha's TwoDresses and had missed getting them. Marsha was so kind a generous to allow me to get them and that started my creative juices flowing again! Then I went out to Deviant Scrap and purchased some more kits with items I didn't have previously. And Viola! My mojo was back!! I truly have enjoyed creating these art pieces the last few days and I realized what I was missing. My blogging friends and the creative support I needed. And guess what! I think I may have found some color along the way! I hope you enjoy these new pieces and thanks Marsha for the inspiration!!

Catch of the Day!

Just to let you all know, I have done some "drive by blogging," but I haven't been able to comment. For some reason, every time I try to, it wants me to sign in over and over, but never will post my comments. After reading Marsha's comments the other day, I'm not going to give a personal update, but for the 30% who would want to know, I've been gone taking care of some personal things.
I haven't felt much like making any art, but here is a piece I put together tonight, all from TumbleFish Studio elements. I hope you enjoy!

Tip Toe through the Oilfield and Tillie!

It has been a while since I have posted. With the weather and being "under the weather," I've only felt like going to work and coming home. I took a bad case of sinusitus and still am not feeling my best. I do have all the giveaways ready to be mailed and as soon as I can get to the post office, they will be on the way. So sorry it has taken this long!
I did create a couple of new pieces of digital art. One is using the cabinet cards from Marsha at Tumble Fish Studios. On both these pieces I've used Paint the Moon photoshop actions. I love them!!

I really love how this piece turned out. I inverted my image of the rigs and used a texture from DJ Pettit. Some of the elements are from Nicole Young and a texture from Lori Davidson. I then used the Strawberries and Cream photoshop action from Paint the Moon.

This piece was used with all elements from Tumble Fish Studio. The picture is from the Cabinet Card collage sheet. I used the Sugar Cookie photoshop action from Paint the Moon.
Paint the Moon's icon is on the sidebar of my blog, so click on it to be taken to the website to order these great actions! Hope everyone enjoys!!

The Persuasion!

I created the following for a recent challenge from Louise at Bumble Button. Our challenge was to create a Jane Austen calling card. I personally love Jane Austen. The books, movies, I'm just in love with them all! Can you tell which is my favorite?

The beautiful image came from IrelandRose Nostalgia's etsy shop. I just love her images! You should check her out sometime. I also used a texture from Playing With Brushes and one from Shadowhouse Creations. And of course, my favorite quote from my favorite Jane Austen book/movie. I hope everyone enjoys!

First Post of 2011......Upcoming Blog Giveaway.......Beautiful Fossil Angel

This month is the anniversary of one year of blogging. To celebrate this great event, I'm going to be having a blog giveaway. I'll be posting more about this coming soon, but there will be wonderful giveaways from some great artist that I love to follow.
Speaking of a great artist.....when I first started thinking of this blog giveaway, I knew there were certain people I wanted to have be a part of this event. Verna from Bird, Bee and Bloom was one of them. I don't know if you noticed that during her blog giveaway, she kept posting these wonderful little angels on the side of her blog. I asked Verna about creating one special for the blog giveaway, and she has. But, to my delite and great surprise, when I received the package last week, she had made a special angel just for me. And today, I'm posting this beautiful little angel! Isn't she just special? I am in love with her!!
