Mail Art Challenge at Lost Coast Designs

  Our challenge this month at Lost Coast Designs is to make some mail art.  So find some envelopes you have laying  around to pay bills with and make them fun to send your money off in!  Here is my companion envelope to the one I made for the start of the challenge.

This shows the envelope flap as I try to carry the design to the back as well.  I used the "Sun and Moon" stamps from Lost Coast Designs.  I also used parts of the "Grunge Window Wall" stamp for an added layer.  Some watercolor pencils, gelatos, and a baby wipe! and some stenciling and added layers did the job.

She Soars Canvas

Once again I am here with another whimsy girl, this time a little variation thanks to RitaMarie on YouTube for lots of inspiration!  The canvas is a chipboard piece from an album kit I bought on sale somewhere.  I added lots of gelatos metallic and regular and if I must be honest, and I must, it was started for a image of Poe and Lenore on their wedding day.  Got my brain crossed and here she landed instead so ravens in the background and darker colors....yeah you see where I was headed?  But this is the first girl I have drawn directly on the canvas, I have been far too chicken but I must say I am liking her a lot!  Her face is acrylics and then gelatos ruled the hair and wings with some Staaedtler watercolor crayons added in for outlining and some depth.

Two photo views...not a photographer at all!

Now she is free to fly away and find her fairy friends as the dragonflies have been telling her stories of a party planned for after Halloween!  Good luck to her on her travels!

Love Hurts Canvas for Rhedd's Creative Spirit

I love cardboard and painting on it, making houses and chests out of it, I just plain love it!  This piece was a wonky cut and I thought about not using it but then thought it could be a wonky canvas.  The girl is mine and she is put on a mixed media background of paints and stamps and papers and stencils....the kitchen sink maybe hiding in there!

Yep, love hurts sometimes but we all fall in love even with a chance of it happening.  So here's to hoping she finds love very soon to heal her broken heart!

Come join us at Rhedd's Creative Spirit this month and bring you altered art and mixed media but no paper cards, Atc's, etc. just have a glance at the rules if you are not sure ;)
