I’m leaving tomorrow to travel to my Nana’s (grandmother’s) house in Erie, PA for a week to celebrate my birthday! It’s always very relaxed there (we basically read, eat, watch tv, drink coffee, and just relax all day) so I’m planning on getting a lot of my current cross stitch – “Peace” by Birds of […]
I made this baby elephant painting / mixed media tonight! I love how the colors turned out. I was worried about the blue, that it wouldn’t go with the pink, but then I added a little yellow to it (to make it more of a turquoise than just blue) and I think it came out […]
I did some experimenting this weekend! I decided to try something different. I combined two things I love – painting and needlework. I painted the sky and main branch, and I hand-sewed the bird and leaves out of quilting fabric! I hand-sewed the other branches and leaves right onto the canvas with white thread.
My niece, Macy, is going to be born soon! I’m working on some paintings for her room. My sister / her mom wanted some jungle animals on an animal print background. I got the backgrounds done so far – wow, they took me like over 3 hours to do! I got stencils for the backgrounds, […]
I finished another painting – it’s three birds sitting together on a branch. I thought it would be neat to use almost every color of the rainbow. I used red, orange, and yellow for the birds, green for the tree leaves, and blue for the sky.
I just can’t get enough of birds :) I finished two new paintings tonight. For these two, I decided to get some inspiration from some previous paintings I had created. The first one is inspired by a painting that I made awhile back, but sold just recently, called Best Friends. It’s a white silhouette of two birds […]
I’ve had this concept in my head for like 3 weeks now, and I finally got a chance to get it on canvas. After painting Finally Found Our Place, I really liked the black tree with the colored leaves, so I decided to take the concept further. I wanted to do a painting that was […]
I finally got nightstands for my bedroom, so I was really excited to get a little bedside lamp to put on my nightstand. I can finally read before going to bed without having to either (a) use a flashlight or (b) get out of bed when I’m ready to sleep! I looked all over for […]
My nephew’s Super Mario Bros. birthday party turned out great! Luckily my sister gave me a ton of creative freedom to do basically whatever I wanted. So, I made the cake (my first fondant cake EVER) and I designed the party favors (candy bars)! It was SO much fun, especially because I LOVE Super Mario […]
I finally finished my Mario painting for my nephew! I just did the final touches today – some coins, Bowser’s head on the castle, the bridge, the pink tree. Here are some pictures! (Above) The final painting (Above) World 1 Featuring Piranha plant, mushrooms, arrow sign, coins, and Goomba. (Above) World 2 and World 3 […]
