Halloween Rocks

Green cat eyes
In midnight gloom
Fly with the witch
On her ragged broom

I love creating Halloween themed art work,it is so magical. This art paper doll I created is a little different with a purple pumpkin head instead of an orange one. What a Funky Pumpkin Diva she is with a beehive for a skirt, kitty cat stocking and boots that rock ! The main paper doll parts are from Character Constructions newest collection, the beehive stamp is awesome. I really enjoyed coloring and creating this Halloween art paper doll.
Happy Halloween!

Stop By For A Spell

How to meet a witch. First, put your clothes on inside out.Then walk backwards to where two roads meet. If you wait until midnight, you will see a witch.
I really enjoy creating Halloween related art work. This Art Paper Doll body is from Character Constructions, I add a few extras to make her more "witchy".
Halloween is coming soon.

Vintage and Lovely

I found this wonderful old photo on my antique treasure hunt, awhile ago. I love the soft colours of taupe, red, off white and hint of green in this old photo. I wanted to share her with you, to use in your art work.
Enjoy, happy creating.

Melusine Threatre



The mermaid is one of the most bewitching creatures of the legend,with the beautiful face, golden hair and torso of a women set above a fish's tail. Mermaids longed to win the love of a mortal man for only through such a union could they gain an immortal soul.

I truly enjoy Mythical creatures and adding them to my art work. I am hooked on these tiny paper threatre, there are such endless possibilities creating with them. You can use a lot of your imagination planning what will be on the stage, it's show time.

Happy creating.

Vampire Laura

It is the month of October and Halloween is coming !!
My daughter Brit found this really fun computer program last night. She gave me a Vampire makeover, to one of my photo's of myself. She changed my eye color, added very dark eyeliner and gave me blood red lips. Spooky !!! My new profile picture, I look like a vampire for the month of October.
I promise not to bite anyone. haha
Happy creating.

Night Flowers

The moon looks upon many night flowers, the night flowers see but the moon.
This little theatre is from Teesha Moore's stamp collection and all the rest of the stamps are from Catherine Moore's stamp collection. The little flower pot is from a scrapbook sheet, everything is colored with watercolor pencils.
The moon face is one of my favorite's to use in my art work.
Happy Creating and enjoy your day.

Encaustic Collage

I really enjoyed creating this Encaustic collage piece. The human cat face in the collage is a transfer over encaustic medium and copper leaf. I wanted lots of texture and my favorite colors. I also added beach glass, rocks and dried leaves.
Enjoy your day.

The Earth And Sky

The sun is trying to come out, it has been rainy here. I can't believe it is suppose to snow this week. Where does the time go.
These clear rubber stamps I used to created this Art Paper Doll, are from Character Constructions. I place an order with Catherine Moore,yesterday. I ordered from the newest stamp collection, The Bird & Bee Paperie. I am excited new Art Paper Dolls to create, my favorite. The new collection is just fabulous, so full of imagination .
Happy Creating !

When I Return To Paris

This little Parisian Drama Queen is off to the theatre and doesn't have time for any one's nonsense. Girlfriend has it going on, she is a shining star. LOL
All the doll parts are from Catherine Moore's Character Constructions. The clear rubber stamp plates are so much fun to mix and match to create and make your own.
I love these colors together; a teal and chocolate brown combination. I truly enjoyed creating this little vintage lady.
Let them eat cake !!!

I Want the Twilight and You

This is a Journal collage page, I created. I love using the word "Twilight".
It sounds so very "mysterious", don't you think.
I am off to the Norfolk County Fair, it is a beautiful day.
I am looking forward to a hot cup of Apple Cider.
Happy Creating.

Big Chunk of Wax

This is a big chunk of scented multi colored candle wax, I purchased at a yard sale. At the time of the purchase the seller said it was beeswax. I thought this is cheap and beeswax ? So I was doubtful but brought it home anyways. It is really heavy piece, it weights about 5o pounds.
I am not a candle maker but maybe I will display this wax piece as modern art. LOL
I learned a good lesson, trust in yourself. I knew this could not be beeswax but it is pretty.
I was thinking maybe there is another artful use for this scented wax, any ideas you can share?
Happy Creating.

A Little Nonsense

It is a cold and rainy night here in Ontario. A good night to sit at your desk and create.
This Art Paper Doll is a combination of Character Constructions and Invoke Arts stamps.
The skirt is just something I added, for a more funky fashion"Diva" look. I had to scan her this way because she is a very big Art Paper Doll.
I think this quote fits this Funky Gal and her flying kitty friend. The little cat is called Potter from Character Constructions, I am a cat lover. You will notice a lot of my art, I will sneak a little kitty cat in somewhere. A little piece of what I love in my art, makes it that much more special to create.
Happy Tuesday.

Little Darlings

Here is an old photo, I wanted to share with you. I found this great photo on my antique treasure hunt. I looked close at the little girls eyes and they look like sisters to me?
I think the the two taller girls are twins, they are dressed the same.( not identical twins)
I wonder what their names were, I love old vintage photo's. So much unknown history, they are a mystery untold. Maybe someday a person in the future will hold an old photo of my sister and myself in their hands. They might be full of questions of our life history too.
The friendship and love of a sister is so special. I enjoyed growing up with an older sister.
My sister and I still make some cherished memories, now that we are older.
I hope you can use this sweet old photo in your art work, I love their dresses too.
Happy Creating.

Laura Jane

Lime green, flowers and stripes are so much fun. This is Laura Jane from Character Constructions by Catherine Moore. It is so much fun mixing and matching the different stamp plates from Character Construction doll parts.
I am such a daydreamer so this quote worked well, to add to this Art Paper Doll I created.
Enjoy your day.
