Vintage June Bride Digital Art

The challenge theme this week at the Three Muses blog is June Bride, so I created this Digital Art inspired by that theme, using a vintage photo of Maude Fealy.

Maude has to be one of my favorite muses for digital art. She was so beautiful! I love working with images of her, as they always inspire me. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful creations for this challenge on the Three Muses blog.

Damon and Elena Digital Art

I was in the mood for some Vampire Diaries Digital Art last night, so I created this digital collage and thought I'd share.

I hope some of you are TVD fans too. I love my TVD! And I love Damon and Elena. :)

Fairy Autumn

A new fairy was born in my studio yesterday...in this new Mixed Media painting. :) Her name is Autumn.

Fairy Autumn Mixed Media


I used some matte medium to adhere some patterned tissue paper to my 12x12 canvas. That gave it some pattern, design, and texture. I had already sketched the fairy's face so then I just painted her on the canvas. The wing shape was something I saw in the pattern of the paper, so I just outlined it with some paint--sort of like finding images in clouds. I love when that happens! I added some stenciled design, some rubber stamped images and rolled on some paint here and there, and added some detail and embellishments in spots as well.

The Hubs said this is his favorite painting of my recent journey into mixed media. That made me feel good. :) I have another painting in progress, but I'm thinking that one will involve flowers instead of fairies. Stay tuned!

Two Fae Moonplay

I was in the studio all day today creating a new mixed media fairy painting, which I will be posting tomorrow. But I've also been having some digital fairy fun on my computer, so I wanted to share my Two Fae Moonplay digital art as well. (Fairies by Lorie Davison of scrapbookgraphics.com)

I know, I know...I'm a fairy addict. :) But we all need a little magic in our lives, don'tcha think?

Bloom

I finally got the finishing touches put on last week's Mixed Media painting, so thought I'd share it today.

Bloom Mixed Media


I'm trying to explore more mixed media techniques and working on getting more layers and texture in my projects. I'm still a work in progress. :) But I'm getting there.
