I decided to keep with the orange and black theme basically. I feel that really gives a true Halloween feeling. I started building my art doll with a Character Constructions corset stamped image.
I was inspired to create this Fashionista kitty cat today because of my two amazing attutides's " in little fur coats".
The Cinnamon Prim and Owl...

A new artful goal for me this year was to learn to sew...I purchased a second hand sewing machine. I have been so inspired by a local Canadian artist, who creates primitive unique art dolls. I really admire Melissa's creative style and love the way she stains her fabric..
With the help of a my sweet friend Janet who knows her way around a sewing machine , here is my first art doll kitty Ms. Aquarella. I need to purchase something to stuff her with,that is why she looks a little flat.lol
It is fun to challenge yourself and explore new artful directions.

When I look at this journal page, I had to giggle to myself. Now that it is finished, it screamed go big !!
"Big Black Lashes, Big Purple Eyes +Big Red Lips"
Creating this Fearless Muse journal page reminds me to keep my creative mind growing strong and reach new goals in my artful life.
...Follow your dreams...
That 's all she wrote, till next time.

Everyone has a story to share in their life and journal pages are a great way of sharing a little piece of yourself.
I tried something new that has been a little struggle for me. Artist Teesha Moore suggests cutting magazine images and adding them to your art work. I finally cut a magazine, I felt like it was a rule that I was breaking somehow. lol I really enjoyed creating my own fashion from the outfits offered in the magazine's.What a blast to mix and match the clothing, to make it your own. I added the color using my watercolor pencils to the jacket. She had to have a stripped neck because it is just fun.
This journal page shares the thought, it is all up to you !!! It is the path you follow for yourself.
Everything can be better. You can leave well enough alone or make it better.
I am myself ...an artful soul.

I have not created with beeswax for way too long, I am not sure why...because I truly enjoy it.
The amazing aroma ,texture and technique.I find it so fascinating all the different colors of beeswax offered. I am very fortunate to have discovered local Bee Keeper's to purchase my wax,everything about bees is so interesting.
You probably have guessed the theme of this canvas piece was inspired by art doll parts and imagination.

The table napkins maybe stained and the crockery chipped, but there is still lots of wonderful food on offer at the Tea Party .
Sandwiches, cakes, biscuits, raspberry jam and, of course plenty of tea are too keep even the fussiest guests happy ! ~ Alice In Wonderland's ; The Visual Guide.
The Mad Hatter will be there.
One of my favorite theme's is Alice In Wonderland and the Tea Party.This stamped image face from The Newest Beekeeper's Collection is perfect to make my big imagination run away..
Once upon a time... young Alice the Diva who felt so misunderstood. Began a magical wild journey riding her whistling tea pot with her friend the musical white rabbit. Only in my story this Alice has wings.

O' fearless bird in flight
You soar boldly where others
only dare to look
high above the land
and the might ocean below
in the endless blue sky
~ A lonely Soul
I truly enjoy sketching these vintage bird cages into my artful creations and I love the face of this Character Constructions art stamp.
....It is all about your state of mind....
Do you feel safe or a captured soul within.
