New art ~

I ran across another wonderful blog the other day and she was having a giveaway contest. Amy of Charming Sam Studios offered up a wonderful photograph for you to take and create a piece of art with it. She will post all the entries on her blog starting Feb. 7th through Feb 13th and the art piece that receives the most votes wins her wonderful prize!

Here is my angel that I put together. She's created on the cover of an old correspondence folder. I photographed the back so you could see where you would store your calling cards! I love the embossed details on front. Her cheeks have been slightly blushed and wings embellished. The key to her heart is included, too!

She will soon be listed in my Etsy store ~

This is lovely Dawn. And I agree about the embossing - it adds that extra touch of goodness. And so do the feathers lol - I love the way you add a bit of dimension but don't let it take over the piece.
Just right. :)

So pretty! I'm fixing to start work on a clock, inspired by your artwork.

I've also been working on nests for a church project...and I keep thinking of your lovely collages. So inspiring!

This is beautiful. I absolutely love it.

We had an extra copy made of our skeleton key to the apt here so we can take the old one with us when we go. I've been thnking of a way to display it and this gives me some new ideas.

Thank you!

Dawn..I always love your artwork.
About the Bouguereau canvas art..we all love his artwork here in our home..we have had the chance to see some of the art in person at the Appleton museum in Ocala, FL..lovely/magnificent(if you ever get a chance to visit Ocala, FL do check out the Appleton museum..they have a nice collection of Bouguereaus there)..we have been fans of Bouguereau's work for quite a while..and I'll be adding another canvas print to my decor soon too.We have the capability "in house" with the printer my husband has for our business..to be able to print large canvas prints of artworks that it is hard to tell that they aren't originals nearly...what fun for me..I get artworks for my home that aren't found at Walmart..ha.
Hugs, Tina
