MY NEW AMAZING BANNERS!

Good morning fellow artists!

   I recently made a new wonderful and talented friend through twitter known as @CMercado1278 -Candice’s Vanity, who is also an artist and makes gorgeous banners. I contacted her and told her what my style and “brand” is and gave just a couple of banner ideas and in within 15-20 minutes, she created me these 3 beauties and I shrieked with joy the moment I say them. Here are the 3 versions she made me and I told her what to use as my text, “Gore Whore,” duh. Haha. The first one is the one that I chose and that is up on my twitter, new tumblr, and my merch shop at teespring.com/stores/-carlies-store, but I love them all. Candice is such as sweetheart and her prices her so reasonable.  Find her on twitter and dm or email her if you want a custom wonderful banner from Candice.

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.

Supplies and Mediums

  I’m working on several art projects tonight which can sometimes feel overwhelming but it’s always worth it. I’m glad and consider myself lucky for feeling comfortable using all art mediums, (except for one but it doesn’t really matter.)

Tonight I worked on two jewelry and trinket box cases. I always love making them, it’s almost a sort of therapy for me, and I used two different techniques and images on these. I’m not finished with them yet but they’ll probably be done tomorrow.

Here’s a sneak peek of the Victorian Lady and Fairy as well as and a glimpse into my world of a very small amount of art supplies. You should see all my stuff. Your jaw would be on the ground.

New Nightmare Before Xmas inspired Art Piece for Sale

I love Tim Burton as many do. When I was living in San Francisco, I had the privilege of seeing an exhibit of his rare work which included his first sketchbooks and drawings and even done small paintings. It was really neat and I’m glad I got to experience it. 

I love Mr. Burton and love it when I do art that is inspired by him. If you recall my huge art piece that I created and posted about a month ago or so, and did a video on it called “Peculiar,” it’s actually based on his movie, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” If you haven’t seen it, scroll down to check it out. It’s for sale for $65.00. 

Anyways yesterday I did another Tim Burton inspired piece based on the “Nightmare Before Christmas,” one if his most popular movies. As my canvas I used an oval slice of a tree trunk and stub (and no I didn’t harm the tree to get it) and did an illustration of some of the characters from the film including, “Lock, Shock, Barrel, and of course, “Oogie Boogie.”

   For my medium, I used pencil, ink, colored pencil and ink, and watercolor. You can still see the tree bark on the side. I was really happy how this turned out and it’s for sale for $50.00. I plan on doing another Burton tree stump illustration but different from this so this Oogie Boogie piece is one of a kind.
