Ta Da ! ~ Matchbox Collage

 I see the moon and the moon see's me.
Magical moments.

It has been to long since I have created matchbox art. It was very exciting my first attempt at a matchbox project was published in Somerset Studios magazine and wow does time fly.

I wanted to add lots of detail to this project because to me that is the fun challenge of creating a matchbox collage.Adding various tiny cut piece's and you must love cutting paper . My Fashionista Palooza is styling a Zentangle patterned dress (drawing simple strokes in certain order~ fill in with a tangle) magical inspiration from  my talented lovely dear friend Brenda. 

I used my favorite pencils to add vibrant colors to this project.
Zentangle is an easy -to-learn, relaxing. and fun to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.  

The stamped images I created with are from Catherine Moore's Character Constructions Designs and they are such fun to play with.

Wishing you a super fun weekend !!!

Tangling With Brenda In Elora

i
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting a kindred spirit friend talented Brenda Shaver Shahin. My darling handsome husband was so kind to take me away to fabulous Elora for the day. I had no idea that day we would walk into Brenda + Nail's HMS Boutique and my creative journey would find a new direction Zentangle. 
Brenda and I immediately bonded as treasured friends and her husband Nail is so wonderful.
Brenda shared her tangle passion and dedication to being a successful teacher.
~~~
Last Saturday we returned to my favorite place to visit Elora and I was so thrilled to learn Zentangles with talented Certified teacher Brenda. Some people are teachers but do not have a gift to share their vision like Brenda. I truly enjoyed learning the magic creative journey to a place of peace, empowerment, and unlimited potential through Zentangle. 

~There is  no going back now~

I am so excited to share a new big "Mindfulness" adventure...Stay tuned Brenda and I have decided to collaborate our ideas to create some unique Zentangle classes. We are going to incorporate Zentangle, collage and Character Constructions beautiful designs. Here is a little hint of the umcoming classes ...Halloween Cirque.
I am so hooked in such a positive way and truly enjoy Zentangle therapy.

Anything is possible...
one stroke at a time !

Under The Starlit Canopy

The Moonlight Hare
  
Starlit

Under the starlit canopy is a recycled greeting card I added gesso and painted black. My story theme is enchanted Character Constructions animal art paper dolls attending the night circus. I recently read the amazing book Night Circus with my daughter and I enjoyed it very much. It truly inspired me to dream magical art ideas using the newest Cirque collection. 

 I have to figure out what to put inside my card, it is almost completed. Maybe I will add a circus story and some tiny art dolls with a paper clip inside the card ? 

The Circus is coming to town....

Happy creating .
