Vision And Curiosities

Rare, strange or novel




Vision is the power of imagination and curiosities are never ending.


~ Laura Haviland




I forgot how much I enjoy creating with swirls and I was so inspired visiting a fabulous talented friends blog.




My imagination ran away creating with this cabinet from newest "The BeeKeeper's collection. I was captured with the idea to create this art paper doll because of my daughter's passion. Her top favorite children's movie is Beauty and the Beast. Once upon a time the servants of a young Prince's castle are enchanted into inanimate objects by a Sorceress and the story begins ...



My imagination took flight .


Oh what tiny hidden secrets, lie within those cabinet's drawers.

A little hint... maybe more wings ...very possible.




Happy Creating.

I wanted to share the before and after of this Character Constructions art paper doll angel with you.

2012 Calendar Collaborative Project


Might I Have A Bit Of Earth ?



A couple of months ago I was asked to participate in a 2012 Calendar Collaborative project. Chris Capista is the organizer and the theme was Catherine Moore's Character Constructions stamps. http://www.characterconstructions.com/




The way it worked was Chris picked the calendar theme. Next Catherine selected 12 artists to participate. We each were assigned one month and had to create a 8.5 x 11 portrait calendar page using Catherine stamps. We made 11 copies of your finished calendar page and send them to the other 11 participate. My month was June and is my above is my calendar page.




I want to say thank you to Chris and Catherine, this was such a positive creative experience. The calendar pages I have received so far are just so unique and beautiful. I have truly enjoy being apart of this project and can't wait for the rest of my calendar pages to arrive in the snail mail.




I had a blast creating my calendar page, my theme idea was creativity and Mother Earth.




If you want to view the other Artists completed calender pages, they are posted on talented Connie's blog.






Happy creating.

Mysterious Flight

The Angel Of Travel And Destiny.




The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page. ~ St.Augustine



Remember you write your own story and who knows what the ending will be ... Angel advise shared.

~~~~~




I created with the No.16 plate from newest Character Constructions collection "The Beekeeper's Tea", using the lovely vintage typewriter.

The typewriter is so cool, to add that edgy fashion statement.

Fun !!!




I always enjoy a happy ending.

Purpose And Power With Commitment

I live each day.



Angels seek to let Divine light and power flow through them unhindered.

I am having a blast creating with The Beekeeper's Tea newest collection from Character Constructions.
http://www.characterconstructions.com/



To create the angels face I used the No. 1 stamp plate from The Beekeeper's Tea collection. I removed the teapot from upon her head and added the tiny pot to the funky Diva swan's fashion statement .

You can really use your big imagination and build your own artistic style creating "Art Fashionista Paper Dolls" .


Challenge your inner child.

The true enjoyable passion of building with these quirky `out of the box` personalities is there is such variety to challenge yourself with these artful creations.

You do have to allow yourself to take some artful risks and cut some body parts to make them your own designs.

That is one my goals to make my art work, reveal a piece of myself.

There are no mistakes ...creating art.


Happy Creating.

What Secrets Lie Within Her Cabinet Of Curiosities ....

My imagination was running away again and my thoughts were of a lavender winged angel.
When you look deep into her soft watery blue eyes, she shares her kindness.
