BIRTHDAY SURPRISE CARD

This is another thing that I do - I make custom Greeting Cards. Most of my cards are made to fit a 5 x 7 envelope. I did not record who made the different papers that I use. The card itself is cardstock, with glitter paper, shiny paper, foam flowers with brads, the present has a metal heart charm attached with a large brad and, of course, some bling! I wish the picture was better but with the shiny paper and the bling, it was hard to get a good picture. It is much colorful that what is shown. The present was cut on the Cricut.

Thanks for looking!

CHRISTMAS MEMORIES


This is a print of my winter scene done in oil rouging. It is a pen & ink drawing of a sled and a basket of berries and ferns against a wood fence. Notice the mouse footprints and the mouse house. This measures 9 x 11 on great quality archival safe paper. This design was created by Mary Owens - I added the berries and twigs to the basket.
Hope you enjoy this!

SUNFLOWER MORNING

This is another original by Lady Beverly!

It measures 9 x 11 on pale yellow mi-teintes paper done on the smooth side. I use only Prismacolor pencils and blend with Gamsol. This technique makes my paintings look just like painting.

I did this painting from a photograph taken by a good friend of mine. It was taken in her backyard last summer - first time I saw it I knew that I needed to paint it.

Thanks for looking!

I'm back - after hectic holidays and doing many new projects, I'm back with my blog.

This is 'Miss Sabrina' - she is a chick with an attitude done in Prismacolor color pencils. She is done on mi-tiense matboard and blended with gamsol. She is appoximately 10 x 14. I have her on Etsy now - I'm selling the print for $40.00.

Please check back often - my goal for 2010 is to have much more!
