Begins With a Vision

Mermaid Vision

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.

Look into my dreamy eye and see the beauty of the sea.

For a brief moment see what I see...

My imagination is so inspired creating with these new amazing mermaids from Character Constructions. They are so magical...

Take a moment to dream...

Mermaid Couture


She runs the gamut from meek and docile to confident and strong-willed

A legendary sea creature having a head and upper body of a women and the tail of a fish. Powerful and highly fashionable styling the latest Mermaid Couture.

Folklore legend shares, I evolved from a Goddess. I was blessed with beauty and medical knowledge. Beware mortal man if you fall in love with me and accept me.

I will drag you under water and drown you. I quite often forget you are mortal man.

What to say about Mermaids...

This is my first creation from Catherine Moore's newest January 2011 design collection "She Sells Seashells by the Seashore". There are so many endless possibilites creating with these beautiful magical mermaids. I am so excited, I love anything related to the sea. I am an Aquaruis, so that explains my fascination with the sea. I love the colors of the water and the mysterious sea creatures.

Have you heard that mermaids sing to each other, they can be seen at:

She Sells Seashells

But remember always, as I told you at first
that this is all a fairy tale,
and only fun and pretense;and therefore,
you are not to believe a word of it, even if it is true.
Charles Kingsley (1864-1875)
Here is a sneak peek !!!
Catherine Moore's Character Constructions 2011 newest collection.
I have always loved the mystery of the mermaid legend, since I was a little girl.
Happy Creating.

Artful Corsets

To put on a corset is as much of an art as to make a corset properly.
Anna Held


These art doll corsets make me remember the first time I seen Catherine Moore's Character Constructions designs. I had never see any stamped images like these, when I started rubber stamping. They were so out of the box and magical.

You proberly have notice, I enjoy adding eyes to my art work ? They represent true vision in my creative mind. The mirror's to the soul... Beautiful.

Winter's butterflies are here...

Crimson And Clover

Ah, now I don't hardly know her
But I think I could
crimson and clover,
over and over.
I trip down memory lane... The colors in these two art doll tags remind me of this fabulous song.
Creating art paper dolls is so magical, it is always a mystery the direction of your imagination.
I truly enjoy adding butterflies and snowflakes are winter's butterflies.
Using the Character Constructions new die cut crinoline skirt, is perfect for adding a piece of vintage lace. The lace piece inserts great, after adding your glue between the two layers of paper.
Crimson and Clover, over and over. I will be humming this song for days. LOL
Happy Creating

On Wings Of Music

Burton

My head is so full of creative thoughts, it just might fly away. I dance to my own music and it is the wind beneath my wings.

Sometimes when we create, simply let our imagination fly away.

Creating art is so magical.
