Two New Mixed Media Pieces

>> Sunday, July 4, 2010

I've had a very productive two days.  Finished two (2) mixed media pieces I was working on in canvas...and one that is currently ongoing.  

This first piece is very close to my heart. I started creating this with the a girlie drawing inside my journal in mind but somehow, she did not seem the right fit.   The canvas sat there with its background partially done for days.  Then one day, I had propped the canvas with the bottom up and I saw a shape which I immediately sketched in and eventually turned into the girl in the painting.

All It Takes Is One Step

She wears a badge of "Courage" in her heart. And a message to everyone that, "all it takes is one step". Yes, sometimes it is that one step that is the hardest to do, most often when fear keeps us rooted in one spot. Courage is taking that first step and believing that the magic inside us will allow us to fly.

A Promise to Love Everyday
Mixed Media on Canvas,

This second piece is based on a sketch I made in my kraft paper journal, playing around with my charcoal pencil and drawing whimsical faces.  I really love how this turned out with the pastel dreamy background colors and touches of doodling here and there. 

The pieces will be up for sale soon, both the original and archival quality Art Prints on Etsy, without the watermark of course :)

About This Blog

All about me, my musings, ramblings, fancies, quirks and dreams; the blessings in my life - the kids and their growing years; and my love for digital scrapbooking/design and graphic arts; and my eternal quest to keep learning something new each day and give back in my little way.

This blog used to be 3 blogs which I decided to merge together, my scrapping blog (Pandoras Box of Thought), the blog about my kids (Beyond the Four Walls) and my cooking/recipe blog (Cooking Mama) - all the old posts are still up but I've decided to just post everything in the future in one forum, with all the things I'm doing, I'd like to keep everything in one neat container :)
