Fairy Club - Members Only ! Whimsical Folk Art on recycled framed wood

This is my last wood cabinet door.
Now I gotta go hunt for more with the 'frame'.
Hope I am successful - this kind seems to be harder to find lately.
I have a great building supply spot nearby,
but ya never know what they will have.
Kind of a hodge podge, but that makes it fun.
I havent listed this one for sale yet.

Witch Painting ! THE Harlequin SISTERS - Folk Art on Recycled Framed Wood - Halloween Magic !

This is my new Witch Painting. I havent done any Witches in Ages, but this idea was really strong. The title is 'The Harlequin Sisters'. I'm totally happy with the colors. That means alot. The background design is other-worldy and a little spooky, which i also like. These Girls are capable of some Serious Magic!

Collage Art

An interesting story is behind this Mermaid Collage - Literally ! A favorite page from one of my Mermaid Books is copied for the background of this Mixed Media artwork. Acrylics are used to paint the head and body, then art paper, raffia and shells are added to embellish and add interest to the piece. Sealed with a Matte finish, and a sprinkle of blue deco-sand is tossed on for a final touch. Very textured and touchable. Ready for my Etsy shop soon. Gonna do a series of these on Canvas Art Boards. Could be displayed as is with the tooth-style hanger on back, or framed for a different look.

New MERMAID Pins !! Sparkly Wearables for All you Mermaid Lovers

2 of my favorite words, Cute & Sparkly, describe these little Mermaid Brooches! To Die 4 on recycled super stiff cardboard, which used to be packing material that came with some transfer sheets (i think..) Cutting is the tricky part, cause if the board is bent, its integrity is lost. But I have a good deal of fun with these cuties. Wait till u c the next ones!!!! You'll just Scream !!!!
