Make Believe

Almost two years I did my last mixed media painting. It was right before I had my last baby. Since then I have been preoccupied with taking care of my kiddos and I discovered a thing called Blythe.

But this past week something happened...a magical spark. I felt like painting again. So I pulled out a wood panel and just started....and this is what a came out.

Make Believe

You can for see how toys have influenced me with this painting. This is a lovely little portrait of a girl playing make believe with her stuffed bear in their own magical land.

I used a sealant I have never tried before until now.... Beeswax! I love it. I will never go back to any other sealant. It smells amazing and gives a lovely dreamy effect to painting too.

This original painting is now available in my etsy shop. Link is above.

I like how both of these dolls are custom by me...but they look totally different.

Next is Leilani. She was a very simple fix-up.

Hi Mummy!

She was gaze corrected and given new blush and lids.

Bits and Pieces

Just some bits and pieces of this past week.

1) Can you tell their daddy is a librarian. We love books around here.

2) This is my view out my front window. My neighbors old camper. I thought it looked pretty with the red autum leaves in front of it.

3) This was my thrift store find today. A little owl with a hat. Too cute!

4) I have been working on a whole bunch of custom dolls lately, as well as editing some family photography shoots, as well as painting...so my workspace is pretty messy!

Page in a Art Journal

I am in a art journal swap with some other artists. This art journal's theme was butterflys and flowers.

Moley Art Journal Swap

Accidental Photo

I was setting up a shot in my little studio when I moved the camera over and clicked the button accidentally. This is what came from that. The camera even focused and everything. This is probably one of the first photos in a long time of me that I love.
I think it is all the pretty natural light.

Out Haunting

Halloween is so fun. I just put up all our decorations. The girls are loving them.

The other day I took this spooky shot at the cemetary. I entered it into a doll photography contest.

Out Haunting

Wish me luck!

A Castle in Real Life

My parents and sister came to visit me this past weekend. It was wonderful, I love them so much. On the last day of their visit we drove to Manti, Utah. To look at the lovely temple they have there.

A Castle in Real Life

It looks just like a castle out of a fairytale book.
