Getting Back into my Blog!

Hi all!

Recently I have been doing lots of art but unfortunately haven’t been using my blog. This is about to change! I am so glad to be getting back into my art and I am looking forward to posting regular blog posts on my new ideas/illustrations and artworks!

Here’s a couple of pieces I have been working on the last couple of months:

magical midnight meeting, painted on a large thin canvas

fairy floral bliss, painted on an upcycled wooden wall hanging

There are plenty more that you can see, which are available to purchase in my etsy store here.

My latest creations! ~

Hey everyone! Lately I have been working a lot on my artwork. Unfortunately I have been off work due to sever back pain, so I have been using my artwork to take my mind off the pain and create some new work! It can be very difficult taking my mind off the pain and how bad it can really get, and I don’t know what I would do without my artwork.

Here’s my new paintings for the new year ~ they are all available to buy on etsy, just simply click the photo to go to my shop! 🙂

Spooky Friends; Art of the Week

This weeks post is a little late (by a few days) as I went away to see my friend Katie. I decided to pick my ‘Spooky Friends’ original canvas painting in relation to my trip, as Katie is one of the best friends in the World.

Spooky Friends is painted on 20×16 inch thin canvas and textured in the usual ripped and crumpled card, paper and butterfly stencils. It is painted in acrylic and emulsion paint and varnished with a protective glossy finish!

This painting sold in August last year, and have also done two similar commission pieces! Commission pieces of this design can be done (but they will differ slightly!) You can also get a small copy in my Etsy shop, which is in the form of a blank note card here!



My items in treasuries

Today I have been featured in two treasuries – I haven’t really been featured in many treasuries, about 6 or 7, and I am so happy when my item gets chosen for one! Here are a couple of my items that have been featured…. (to view the treasuries just click on the images!)

At Home with the Fairies

Love

In Bloom



Etsy Treasury; Bright and Beautiful

Another PCF Team treasury – this time a treasury trade one (which I have never done before.) I think I am becoming obsessed with making treasuries, so I am going to have a couple days break!



Textured Canvas Boards

When I am using canvas board, I start off by texturing it with all sorts of ripped card, paper and stencil, sticking them down with PVA glue and water. Usually I use musical note paper, and pages out of old Shakespearean texts such as Romeo and Juliet, and Macbeth. Another texturing effect that works brilliantly is tissue paper. The reason I use different types of paper and card is to enhance the board, so not only are two boards the same but it gives my paintings a great ‘rough’ look.

I have not yet decided what to paint on this 16×16 inch textured board…. but will definitely be posting the results when I do!
