About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Spring 2012 Art Challenge

I finally was able to get this challenge finished over the weekend! 

Even tho I primed this TWICE and 2 coats of paint, the old stain wanted to bleed thru, so I just matched the lining paper to color coming thru

here is the before pic of this box I gave new life to...

There still is a month to join in this art challenge which is open to any art medium as long as you use this image! Click on the image below to see all the fun details!

Beautiful box, Debbi! I just found you through Marsha's blog {Tattered Chick}. You have a beautiful blog here. I wish I had found you before the art challenge swap; it seems like it was a fun project!
