acrylic transfers. :)

i did art. yay.

i did some cool acrylic transfers of two of my photographs and did some mixed media/ healing with it like so;

inner child healing

the middle image of the child is me as a child! :) (awwww), it's from this picture:

(but then reversed as it is a transfer)
i scanned it, printed it and transferred it.
i am no older than 3 there - yeah, i know, it looks a little like i'm no older than minus 100 there (hee hee) with the sepia and old look there, but zhe truth is; my mum had a thing for 'old looking' photos so she hired a photographer especially. this pic was taking in the 70ties, not in the early 1900s hee hee. ;)

and the lower pic is another pic of me, this one:

(again; reversed as it's a transfer)

i enjoyed doing this piece, definitely very mixed media, loads of different materials; crayons, fabric, scrapbooking stickers, scrapbooking papers, book pages, rubber stamps, sheet music, gold leaf (or rather silver), ribbon, rub ons, acrylic paint, stickers.

but i miss the drawing. ha. it's more collage than drawing, and i like drawing so much! :)

mostly i wanted to see if i could get this gel transfer to work nicely, they're a bit vague but nice enough i think!

i've done more art and new [experimental, hilariously deformed] puppets, but not scanned/ photographed them yet, should appear somewhere sometime soon!!


ok, hope everyone's good, happy thanksgiving to my americanosies. :) and happy whatever else to everyone else.

oh PS.

big love. x

a pair of underwater pearls

been pretty sick with back ache and some other medical issues, but managed to find some energy for new art vid and some new stuffed toys. :)

the art video is a bit of a random one. i do a mini tutorial on drawing hands and i am working on a painting inspired by josee savaria whose paintings make me drool.

also, i bought a mini moleskin a while ago, it was meant as a spiritual diary but i've been doodling more in it on the train every day, can only really use pencil as i'm on the train, so some pics of recent girl doodles below.

the painting i'm working on in the vid, will have a girl in it like in the doodles below.

uhm, what else?

oh yes; i put a load more stuff up in my etsy shop again, so go check it out :-) (if you want of course). here are the latest listings:

want to thank everyone who's been sweet to me, leaving comments and sending love and healing vibes during this scary time for me. you know i love you guys right? and uhm; you like, so totally very much rock!

hello the world!

So, I've been updating my site with a lot of new stuff! Most importantly I now have a site shop and a new 'news' page, which is this one, I hope! (yay!)

I have recently finished my commissions for the lady who wanted me to draw 4 portraits of her and her friends, this is the latest in the bunch:


and this is all 4 of them together, the ribbon symbolically connecting them all:

all 4 girls connected

i've also been playing with mixing digital with "actual" art and loved what came of it:


this is basically an unfinished painting (i'd only done the face and i did the rest with photoshop :-)


ok, in other news, i am now selling postcards!!!


card set - whimsical creatures


4 notecards of the little littles.

if you want to scrutinize these funky little cards, check out my flickr account here.

these are all for sale in my etsy shop!

and the news doesn't just stop there, i've been making puppets/ soft toys and they are for sale as well!

my latest two cute puppets are willy and flora:

willy the love cat

flora the penguin

aren't they just adorable? well i think so! :)

and now that i'm using this new format for my news/ blog updates, you can leave comments if you want, yay! :)
