Love Lives Here

I created this piece for the art class I am taking.  I love making wall art!!  But how cool would this one be on a round cutting board or lazy susan?  Coasters?   I’m going to make some.  😀

With Thanksgiving coming up soon, I wanted to make a kitchen-themed piece of art.  I used some of the elements from my kitchen fabric design to come up with this piece of wall art.  It’s available in my etsy...

Global Talent Search Semi-Finalist!

Good morning! I am in a state of shock right now, because my piece was chosen to be in the top 50 for Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search!  What an amazing opportunity!  I took Make Art That Sells parts A and B, as well as Bootcamp, over the past year, and I have grown an incredible amount. I feel a little bit like a kid on Christmas morning!  There were so many beautiful pieces of art that were submitted.  I don’t know how they narrowed it down from 999 to just 50. These are some of the beginnings of this piece.  I scanned the best ones, along with some background paintings, to create my artwork. (I was also working on some custom Michigan artwork at the time, so there are some other random things thrown on these pages, too!) I also have another version of my terrarium art, which I didn’t like as much as the one I submitted: I submitted my final piece early in the week, because I was super busy with the store and Polka Dot Mitten, and I wanted to make sure I got my assignment done.  This is the one I submitted: I also created several other pieces from my main piece:   I’m really nervous about the next round, but also very excited to get started on the assignment!  Hope you’ll all follow along on this...

Global Talent Search

I uploaded my terrarium artwork for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search today!  It’s not due until next Monday, but we were encouraged to upload early.  So I worked ALL weekend on my assignment… I could have tweaked it and added to it forever, but I have a lot of work to do this week, so I decided to go with it today!  I really love how it turned out.  There are so many people in the competition that I’m fairly certain that I won’t be chosen.  But at least I had fun making it, and now I have a great new addition to my collection!  I will be able to make numerous coordinating pieces of artwork with all the icons and patterns I put into my one submission.  Can’t wait to share it with...

Our final assignment for Lilla Rogers’ Bootcamp was to draw beverages in our style.  We couldn’t post our work to the Facebook group all month so that we would stay true to ourselves.  I did my assignment with my handwriting as the main focus, since that is what I’m best at doing. It’s live in the bootcamp gallery so head over there and check out everyone’s take on the July...
