Outlander Art Journal Page

Since I'm getting all wrapped up in the Outlander book AND the TV show, I thought I'd dedicate a page in my art journal to the characters, Claire and Jamie. 

Outlander Journal

I was only introduced to Outlander a short time ago through an online friend that posted about it on Facebook (thanks, Tracy!). I started reading it and I knew fairly quick I was going to need to watch the series as well. So I ordered Starz just so I could watch it. I'm still reading the book--I'm a few chapters ahead of where the show is right now. It's fun to be able to see how the characters are brought to life on the small screen. I think they're doing a wonderful job of staying true to the book and the characters as well. And I'm absolutely loving the journey that the book is taking me on with Jamie and Claire.

There may be more Outlander journal pages in my future. :)

Fairy by Moonlight

I felt like creating some digital Fairy Art this evening, so I just thought I'd share my creation.

Fairy by Moonlight

Hope you have a magical weekend...

Sparkle Fairy

It seems that I just can't get away from my Fairy Art girls. I just keep getting inspired to paint more. And I love working with various media and improving my skills with them, and with portraits in general. I love how my Sparkle Fairy came out this weekend.

Sparkle Fairy

I used mostly Neocolor II Crayons for this artwork this time. There is some white acrylic paint marker for details, and also some black pen and black rubber stamping as well. And also a wee bit of stenciling with distress ink was done in the background. It was a great, productive day in the studio.

Pink Poppies Mixed Media

I was in the mood to paint some flowers in the studio. I started these Pink Poppies last week but didn't get a chance to finish them. Finally was able to get in the studio for a couple of hours on Sunday--despite fighting a nasty cold and just not feeling well--just so I could finish this up.

Pink Poppies

Sometimes, a girls just feels like some flowers. I did this on a birch wood panel, just because I wanted to try one out. I kind of liked it and I'm sure I'll use more wood panels in the future. It's a nice change of pace.

She Could Fly Fairy

I finished a new Mixed Media painting in the studio over the weekend. And another little fairy is born. :)

She Could Fly Fairy Art

She loved to DREAM
for in her dreams she could FLY

I messed up her hand and had to put a flower on it. LOL. But nobody's perfect, right?

Flutter Fae

Some more Fairy Art was finished in the studio over the weekend. I love how she turned out!

Flutter Fae Mixed Media

My Flutter Fae was created using Neocolor Crayons and Inktense blocks, a touch of acrylic paint pen and some Pitt Artist pens. She's on watercolor paper instead of canvas this time and 7x10 in size. I think I'm going to frame this one and keep her in the studio. :)
