Break Out and Sing ACEO

ACEO (2-1/2 x 3-1/2")  made with sheet music, vegetable netting, and found letters.

Now if I could just take my own advice ...
(well, except for the "singing" part!)

She's a Star - ACEO/ATC

Title: She's a Star
Size: ACEO/ATC - 3-1/2" x 2-1/2"

Notes: Made with page from children's songbook page (rescued from garbage); acrylic paint.

More Notes: I haven't posted for a long time ... I wish I could say I've been too busy creating new he'art'; but that would be a lie. The truth is I've been somewhat dis'heart'ened ... not enough time or space to create. At least that was the excuse I used.

Then ... out of the blue yesterday I was compelled to my work table ... and this popped out. 

I can't wait to re-visit my artistic side some more!!!

Another Altered Book Page ...

Title: Watercolor Bird
Size: Altered Book Page

Notes: I got the idea for this project years ago from my kids' primary school art class. This is something ANYONE can try - even those of us (yes, myself included) who "can't draw"!

Simply find a picture in a magazine, cut it in half, then use the other half as a guide to draw/paint in the part that is missing!!!

More Notes: Join us over at Beth's Artworx for "FATuesday Artist Spotlight" - where each week Beth features wonderful artists - and invites us ALL to link up our own art - to share and encourage fellow artists from around the world!

Graffiti He'Art'

Title: "Heartrise!"
Size: ACEO/ATC - 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"

Notes: Made with real graffiti (see sidebar for details).

More Notes: I haven't posted my artwork for a while, for a lot of excuses, er, reasons ... mostly involving a place to create my art ... which for now is an inaccessible corner of the living room. SOON this will change, with special thank yous to my sister Beth, my brother Darren and my daughter Victoria! I can hardly wait to have my own creative space to free all of the ideas and inspirations floating around in my head and that special folder on my external hard drive ...
