Boston Art Trip

     Here’s some of the beautiful historical art in downtown Boston from my trip I took there last month. Besides the gorgeous photos I shot of the harbor, we got to see Paul Reverie’s house and his monument and as well as Ben Franklin’s monument. The gravestones were amazing, They reminded me of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland where you can barely read the date of birth and death. Those graves themselves are a work of art. It was also neat getting my photo taken in front of the Jewish Advocate building and the down street art Firetruck.

We shot so many photos just downtown but if I posted them all here, it would be an extremely long post. haha. Hope you enjoy the art in Boston.

The best part of my art journey was painting and being added to my cousin’s family tree. That meant so much to me and my husband.

   ***BY THE WAY, MY MOM’S SIDE OF THE FAMILY HAS ALWAYS BEEN KINDER TO ME, MY FOLKS AND BROTHER, AND ESPECIALLY MY HUSBAND! I LOVE YOU DANNY, CAROLINE, SHIRI, AND ROSE!

This is my latest Nightmare Before Xmas stump painting. I actually like this one a bit more than my previous one because I seem to have got the hang of working with the materials.

The materials I used to create this includes, small tree stump, black ink, pencil transfers, distressed ink and acrylic paint. I sealed the piece as always.

Junk Journal Work in Progress

Here’s my latest junk journal I’m working on. It’s not for anyone in particular yet and there isn’t a specific theme this time unlike my last two journal commissions I did. I’m adding things like removable envelopes for treasures stored inside and your hidden treasures. There’s also folders and extra compartments. I’m focusing on putting together images and quotes, photos, and more that I think work well together in their own unique and beautiful ways. I’m having a lot of fun working on this.

I’ve been trying new art techniques while making this journal. It’s all hand made and it’s giving me a nice chance to try some new things so it’s extra fun for me to create.

Here are just a few of my work in progress photos of my latest junk journal creation.

    Like I say after every junk journal post, if you want me to make you one, leave a comment down below. Thank you and enjoy. xoxo

   I’m not sure if I will sell the finished product yet but we shall see. It will definitely be a fabulously creative and one of a kind junk journal.

You’ll all saw me with my work in progress for this art piece of mine that was a commission. Because I loved making and selling it so much because of my new concept, I made another exact one or my self and for whoever wants to buy it. When you watch the video, you’ll see how it’s not my usual typical hand made jewelry/trinket box. This was blessed with positive energy and is perfect for anyone who is in a negative head space. I’m selling this extra Steampunk Butterly piece for $50.00 plus shipping but if you want a smaller version of this box, I can make one and sell it for $30.00 plus shipping. Let me know what you think in the comments below, especially if you want to buy this and/or hit me up under my comments under this video on my youtube channel. Thank you for everyone’s support and love! Hope you enjoy!!!!!!

Botanical Creatures

This is my latest art piece with a Botanical Theme to it. Botanical is different than the oddity pieces I love making. The definition of Botanical is a substance obtained from a plant and can be used as an additive, for healing properties and more which I wanted to express in my piece here.

I was so excited to use distressed ink as one of the techniques I used to create this piece. I had always been on the fence if I wanted to use it because I wasn’t sure how I would like it or mess up a painting or piece but I’m SO EXCITED that I tried it and now I can’t stop using it. The first painting I used it on was my nightmare before xmas painting that I did on wood. Because the wood was so grainy, I added green distressed ink on the bark to make it coincide together. After my painting was complete, I knew distressed ink and I were in love.

For my “Botanical Creatures” I use distressed in certain places but wanted to display the botanicals and the little creatures more. I made those small 3-D butterflies that you’ll see in the piece as well.

THE PRICE FOR BOTANICAL CREATURES IS $50!

I REALLY HOPE YOU LIKE MY PROJECT! I definitely put a lot of love in it, especially making the shadow box which you can use flat or hang it up.    Since I’m a natural with who deals with healing and herbs, crystals, etc, I’ve use similar pieces to this one for my own magical work and have had great success with it!!!
