Can you see Mocha?

Okay.. I know you can see the two wine bottles and the glass of wine, but can you see dear sweet Mocha? She's my Kitty Cat Art Studio Mascot, always helping me with my composition and walking through paint, thus so... she sometimes has a painted tail and embossed whiskers, not to mention all the crap that she walks across.  There is a reason to my madness! I spent all afternoon going through my paper, stuff, paint, and other fancy stuff stash. It's all arranged in see  through boxes, this was  supposeed to make me more creative.  Not...

April Journal Prompt

April Journal Prompt... Send an Imaginary Post Card. My kitty, Jezabelle and I headed off to La La Land and found all sorts of cool things going on. Lolly pops growing like spring flowers, butterflies made of chocolate and of coarse, Jezabelle could talk. Post Card is addressed to Mom and Dad to my childhood home address. Way fun!

Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon... No challenge, just me and the journal talking about life and loosing.   " I went though all our photographs, memories made through out the years, pictures worth a million words that bring my heart to tears...... My father gone in early prime, my brother next in line , then last my mom. And so, my wings shall visit you until my time is come." Vintage arithmetic pages, stamped and collaged, painted, colored, butterfly stamped, face painted with acrylics, colored pencil, gesso.

Artful Bag

 Frosted Petunias Artful Bag Challenge for the month of March was Embellish.   I started with a plain little green bag. Cute, but not Special. The oriental pin has been laying in my bead re-do pile for years. I added more beads and made another hangey down bead thingey that attaches to the strap. It will probably drive me insane the first time I use it, but looks cool just for the sake of ART.

 This is a up close look at the handmade pin and my ho hum attempt at beading.  To see all the bags that got a face lift this month, check out http://frostedpetunias.blogspot.com/2011/03/march-artful-bag.html

Sunday Postcard "White"

The challenge this week at "Sunday Postcard" was WHITE! Think you can't be inspired by White, well think again. My mind drifted back to my childhood playing Clue, much more fun than Monopoly cause you didn't have to worry about been a land tycoon or handling money and always landing on Boardwalk with those nasty hotels. Oh well... anyway, Mrs. White just kind of jumped out from the shadows and here she is, holding the candlestick. Too bad, she's been busted. Hop on over to http://sundaypostcardart.wordpress.com/ and see what other cool stuff has been created with White! Thanks for dropping by!

Take A Word " Architecture"

This week at "Take A Word" the challenge was architecture. The challenge was posted last Sunday and I've been on again off again with this theme. I poked around my usual FREE image sites and finally found something to In...spire me. Get it spires... Inspire. And, since I'm on this whole paper doll kind of thing, it went together like a charm. To see all the other cool art created this month, here's the link http://takeaword.blogspot.com/
