Astounding Time

Today I heard a very powerful thought, I wanted to share with you.
Do you feel you have chose a fight against life or to live at peace with life.
It is all up to you what direction your life journey travels I am trying to focus on the friendly life suggestion. This has given me a lot to think about "a new way to look at life". Stop fighting all these inner self battles and move on. Sometimes it is such a struggle to find true happiness.
I wanted to add some funky elements to this Character Constructions art paper doll. Polars bears are suppose to be white but I wanted my little peeking bears to be purple.LOL It is the magic of creating art, the choice's are endless.
Wishing you a peaceful day.

Alice In Zetti Land

It all begins on a hot summer afternoon when the White Rabbit runs past Alice as she lies dozing in the meadow, takes a watch out of his waistcoat pocket and hurries down the large rabbit hole. Alice follows him down down down into a topsy turvy world where anything can happen.
Nothing is what is seems in Zetti Land it is so magical and full of creative odd characters.
Alice had been looking over her shoulder when the Hatter appeared. The Hatter eyes opened very wide but all he said was, Why is a raven like a writing desk ? Exactly "time to create art" !!!
This is not the end only the beginning....

Artful Treasures




Look at these beautiful artful treasures that arrived in my mailbox. I am just thrilled.

A while ago a very talented fellow blogger wrote to me and asked if I would be interested in trading art. I was immediately delighted and excited with this awesome idea. Sharon Borsavage from Livewire Jewellery created these stunning handmade unique jewellery pieces. I adore the colors and wear them proudly. They are so funky and cleverly designed. I had to share them with you.
When I started blogging I didn't know what to expect. Blogging has been more rewarding than I ever dreamed of. I feel such a strong friendship connection to Sharon and I know we will be life long friends.
Creating our art is so magical and so are the pleasures that come along with it.
Thank you to the talented Sharon, I love my treasures and I will think of you everytime I wear them.
Happy Creating.

Enchanted Soul


Soul shadows

I hope you are enjoying your summer.
Happy creating.

O Frabious Day

Brave boots
Frabjous day to Dawn-the day when Alice will slay the Jabberwocky. Then the White Queen will rule again and everyone will Futterwacken. The Mad Hatter is the only one who believes
that this is the true Alice. Now it is up to Alice to prove him right.
I picked this quote from Alice in Wonderland because somedays life feels like a battle.LOL It is always great to know someone believes in you and at the end of the day you can " do a big happy dance". There is always a new day full of dreams...
This Character Constructions art doll is ready for anything styling her maverlous brave boots. Sometimes you have to put these boots on to say I can do it !!!!! It is a new day with no mistakes.
Happy Creating.

Be Yourself

If you want others to believe in you, you must believe in yourself first.
Have you ever felt like creating something a little different ? I feel that my days are just the same daily routine, creating art work never feels this way. It is a great escape from the normal routine.
I created this background using my fan brush and then dragging my bone folder to make textured lines. I combined turquoise,purple and brown to create this background.
I had to giggle when I showed this finished art doll to my husband. He replied to me saying she is you as he laughed. I said is my hair that big and full of secrets ? hahahahaha
Have a super day.

Peace


The most powerful weapon on earth is the soul on fire.
My daughter arrive home after being away this weekend in Montreal.Oh to be young and a free bird. She shared her picture's from the concert she attended. This amazing quote was on one of the very cool band members t-shirt in her awesome concert photo's. Anyways I thought it was neat and it gave me the creative inspiration for the theme of this art paper doll. The Character Constructions art doll head I added work out well, she screamed flower power.LOL I liked the butterfly on her cheek, it included the needed funky. You never know where your creative ideas will grow from, always so magical.
I am so pleased to be back on line, we have been experiencing computer problems. I have lots of catching up. "It is great to be back on line". I am excited to visited my fellow friends fabulous art blogs and answer my e-mails.

Hold Fast To Dreams

Sometimes life feels out of your control. Do you feel your art work is always something positive waiting for you. I have not had a lot of time for art creating this summer. When I do make time to sit at my desk, that is my special time.
The theme for this Character Constructions art paper doll is related to my children. She is hanging on tight to her nest but they are flying away. Sometimes it feels like parents are the one's learning and growing too.
Hold on to dreams.

Going Postal

Big Adventure
These funky gals are getting ready for a journey far away, they are leaving home. Time to say good bye. LOL

I am getting these art paper dolls ready to send away to a talented artist friend. She is just the most amazing artist with such a unique style of her own. As I was setting the envelope down and the art dolls in front of it. I thought of taking a picture and sharing it with you.

The ladies at the post office enjoy my snail mail, I have to make it artful to send away. If I don't add some kind of art work to my envelope it feels naked. hahaha
It is so much fun sharing your art, truly special.
Happy Creating.
