2014 Collaborative Calendar Sneak Peek

Winter~Belle Jardiniere
 A butterfly that dreamed of being a women... 

I wanted to share a sneak peek with you ..
Catherine Moore invited 13 talented artists to create a 2014 Character Constructions calendar. Each artist created a page for each month using their great artful imaginations. My dear friend  brilliant Connie Fong sent our images to a vendor to produce a professional 5x5 spiral bound desk calendar.  It is on the way in the snail mail  and when it arrives I will reveal more magic. 
I am Ms. January and my imagination created a french lavender winter garden featuring a styling steampunk moth butterfly. 
My creative vision~ a musical inspired vintage page. I added lots of lavender ink, antique lace and a purple passion felt snowflake with a pearl in the center. The metal spinner and clock create a steampunk fashion statement, oh can you see the peacock feather on her funky black hat ? I can never get enough of creating with peacock feathers.I enjoy all the colors shared in their glamorous feathers. 
The magic of art creating allows these page characters to survive the wintertime.
No rules when creating your art work.
When I receive my desk calendar in about maybe two weeks, I will reveal more created calendar pages to you.
It was such a pleasure to be invited to participate in this creative collaborative event. 
I am still recovering from my recent foot surgery. I have to keep my foot up for a bit so it does not swell. I am not ready to create yet but dreaming of lots of new ideas.
 Maybe I am going through creative withdrawal, I will be back posting soon.

You can see more sneak peaks of the upcoming Character Constructions calendar on wonderful Connie Fong's inspirational blog.

I will return soon..
Merry Christmas to you. 
Happy creating.

Stopping By To Say Hello


 I have not posted in a long time. I have been recovering from my foot surgery and this is my third week since surgery. It is more a of challenge than I imagined. I have had lots of time to dream about new creative ideas. I have been enjoying reading the newest current Artful Blogger and Somerset Workshop magazine's,they are so full of brilliant creative ideas.  My darling husband was so sweet to surprise me.  
 I shared this piece of my art work I created sometime ago because it fits my life style at this time. I am starting to feel a little better now and still have a ways to go. I look forward to creating and sharing my new dreamy ideas in the fabulous New Year. I have to keep my foot up and get lots of rest.
I will return before you have missed me. 
Thank you to all my thoughtful friends for your lovely kind words, I appreciate it very much.   
Happy Magical Creating.
