I am joining in with a swap over at The Trodden Path It's a new group & they have classes for free & paid. Some very interesting classes available. There is a monthly ATC swap. The title of which is 'Vintage Risqué and to be tasteful. We haven't even been assigned partners yet but I saw this, this morning and just got to work.
Some close ups you only need to do three I think. But I always like to do an extra one so I have one from the group of my own. I will also get three in return so it will be nice to get some in the post. thanks for looking Dxx

|This is a young lads version of the quote|
|This is a young girl version of the quote|
I have been working with 7x5 canvas. Not very large but I do like the size. I have used a popular quote as I thought this would be really good for a positive image for a young person to have in their room. Too many children of all ages & both sexes are suffering with negative body image and I just thought this would be a fun way to have a positive msg displayed and hopefully in their subconscious as well. I am putting these in PPF Have a wonderful wkend Dxx
GIVE AWAY STILL OPEN UNTIL 1ST MAY (see top left of side bar)

I was asked if I had any place matt's with birds & butterfly's as a theme. Well the answer was no, but I could make some. And this is what I did. Sorry for the quality of photo the sun was very bright for a change and they look a little over exposed but they are all wrapped up & ready to be delivered so these will have to do.
I coloured and added wings to these images.
It took me a while to decide what on earth I would do. It's a shame these photos are so washed out. The back grounds are painted, stamped with more paint & ink and painted again, they are so bright and vibrant. I do hope my customer likes these (fingers crossed) Thank you as always for taking time to stop by and any comments you leave, I read every one! And welcome to all my new followers how lovely of you to join in my crafty journey. Dxx

This is a Collage/Painting on hard board 14x9 I was thinking about family & memories and you know, it came to me. Memories good or bad make us who we are. I wanted to put this down and got to work it began in my art journal Here. I have changed a few things, but I am happy.
I am happy with the quote, and with how it looks on the hard board. The birds are my own doodles and I really love the creation process just as much the second time around.
Hope you like these lovely birds. I am also going to enter this in to PPF I do hope you like this and have time to leave a comment have a wonderful weekend Dxx

My new business items. I'm hoping they help me look more professional :) One can hope lol. I am also going to do a little give away as well, so I hope you like what I am offering you. See bottom of post for details if you can't wait.
When these arrived I was SO excited. My works of art on my cute moo sized business cards! Nice thick card and print quality is really true to the colours I'm so very pleased with these and you can have every single card with a different design on (how amazing?) I cut down full works of art (in windows) and used them to upload to the sight Here. So I am passing these around at the moment, but I was thinking a head when I do my first craft show later in the year. These will look so cute in a little bowl, I could even make key rings out of them or put some ribbon in them can you tell I love them?
You can also have these lovely stickers Here. You can put your address on them or anything that will fit in the space and again you can have every sticker a different design if you like. I put some of my recent works on these and thought I would use them on items I have sold. People get a glimpse of what else is available and they also have your contact details.

I hope you all had a lovely BH weekend and are managing to have some ARTY time to yourself. This is what I spent my BH Monday doing. I used 12x12 recycled cardboard and as it was Easter I decided to do a religious painting. I got to work painting the background first and then while I was waiting for this to dry I did some journal pages which you can see Here.
the quote is from the bible Ephesians 5:8 it says 'Don't shine so others can see you. Shine so that through you others can see HIM' I have used some metallic paints to get a spiritual feel.
I hope you had a lovely week end. Thank you for your comments and stopping by. I always read all comments and where possible return to the blog the comment came from. I love to see what every one is up to artistically, I find you all so inspiring. Love Dawn xx

Hope you're having a wonderful BH Monday in the UK. I was busy this week with this 7x5 inch Canvas this is for a gallery show where all canvases will be this size. This is the first time I will be putting my work in a gallery & I haven't done any Steam Punk in such a while I thought I would give it ago. There is a real enamel pocket watch face on there along with lots of watch parts I have even wrote a little story to go with it and aged it with distress inks lol
Hans was an inventor of amazing engineering standard. He wanted a little girl. With his skills he brought her into being as he had long wished to test his creativity on something much more complicated that anything static & lifeless. Indeed he wanted to create something with a mind of its very own. Penelope became his greatest accomplishment. A darling little girl with a wonderful mind (even though clockwork) here lay the genius of Hans the engineer. However, after many years in each other’s company and when Hans was then very old, Penelope asked what would become of her and Hans told her that she could do anything that she dreamed of.
Penelope dreamed of travel, she didn’t want to travel in the modern steam train or motorcar, she wanted to fly in the air. With her extraordinary mind she created with help from Hans a hot air balloon that would take her all around Germany and on to France. There she saw the delights of boutiques and how the women of France dared to dress. She grew sad that her small frame would never develop into a beautiful shapely woman that all would look at. And she had nothing but time in front of her to spend creating but never really being what she so much wanted to become.
I hope you enjoyed the little story that accompany's this little canvas I enjoyed letting may imagination take flight with little Penelope & her creator Hans :) I also just found this challenge at Unruly Paper Arts and it's all about 'Gears' and we have to vote on what think is the best entry, There is going to be some talent on display (I am first up) So I will have to see who else joins in, it's bound to be tuff competition. As it's the 1st of the month you may like to join in with ans art Journal challenge over at Journal Journey's There is also a link in the side bar. I hope you have time to leave a comment. Thank you for stopping by Love Dawn xx
