This past week I’ve been working on stamped, collage, hand cut fairy paper dolls.
I use a combination of angel company (Character Constructions , ArtChix Studio, Enchanted Gallery) rubber stamps, digital collage sheets and old magazines, along with beads and wire. They look something like this, but all are unique. The best part is finding or making little accessory charms for each fairy.
I made thirty-six of those little creatures. Thirty have already claimed a new home. I have another custom mixed media fairy project in the works and it should pan out to be fun work. In the meantime I treated myself to a few digital collage sheets by artist itKupiLli. I’m trying to teach myself how to use Adobe Photoshop elements for digital artwork. Here is a sample that I’ve played with:
One of my intentions for the new year is to become more skilled with digital art and use my own artwork for some designs. I also have an amazing opportunity for a new venture that involves getting my hands dirty and learning more in the horticulture business. It’s a green industry, good for the environment too and I’m pretty excited about this. Here’s hoping that you greet this New Year with ease and balance.
