Master Bedroom Design Is Show House

Here's a couple of photos of the master bedroom I did. Lots of hard work, but well worth it:) Most everything you see here has been repurposed. A fresh coat of off-white paint unifies the various furniture pieces, as does Krylon's Chrome spray paint. Super easy to do and super inexpensive!

Good Morning!

Hey Everyone!

I haven't posted, I've been busy with a few things---hosted a Halloween Party, had my sister, Bianca in town, and then came down with the flu. I've had it for 5 days now, each day gets better than the last, thank goodness. I seldom ever get sick, but it was going around at my children's school and my daughter had it, so I knew between my son, hubby, and I, one, if not all, were bound to get it as well.

Anyway, I wanted to update everyone who is following me. All of the names of the first 50 followers are ready for me to draw one person's name from. I will make the announcement on Wednesday, so stay tuned. The winner's name will be posted here on my blog, and I will personally contact the winner. Best of Luck to All!

Lastly, I thought I'd share a photo, or two... This morning, after days of feeling sick, I managed to drink a cup of coffee, and while doing so, I took in the beautiful view from my sunroom. It is fall here in Atlanta and unlike my home state of Michigan, where the month of October promises the beautiful myriad of colors, here things change in a blink of an eye---or so it seems. Trees go from green to barren and it pales in comparison to the beauty of what the northern states have to offer during the fall. Ooooh, but this morning was unique. The sunrise was gorgeous and the water calm---and a tree not far from me, caught my eye. It's beautiful red and gold leaves sparkled in the sun and the reflection of the water made it all that More... Quickly--- I reached for my camera and snapped a few photos, to embrace it, to remember it, and to share it; With You:)

Until then, Happy Haunting!!!
Thanks Y'all...

New Prints on etsy

Forgive me for not updating my blog. To say I've been super busy is an understatement. Anyway, I wanted to pop in and announce that I have some new releases in my etsy store. Some are prints of my mixed-media paintings, others of my dolls. Do take a moment and stop by to see if something interests you. All the prints are available in different sizes-just let me know if you have a specific size in mind.
That's it for now.
Hope everyone is enjoying these nice "fall" days. I am. It's nice and cool here in Atlanta. FINALLY:)

New print on etsy

I've added another print on etsy. This one is titled: CreepY GirL
It is a reproduction of a mixed-media painting I created and then enhanced with digital overlays (words, verses, scroll work). Interested? Check it out HERE...
That's if for now---♥

Painting turned art doll

Art doll created from a fabric transfer of an original painting I made a few months ago. This was a commissioned piece. I'm thinking I should make more. So cute:)

Thursday, September 9, 2010


Well here's another doll face I designed for Adora Belle, the class I'm teaching at AFIC. There are 3 different shaped heads being offered for this doll and for this last one, I decided to paint it in various tones of yellow-a color I seldom ever use. Stay tuned as I will post photos of my progress.
Thanks for popping in!!!

"Your Majesty"

Keeping busy. It's large 16" X 20"---on canvas. Enjoy:)

Sunday, September 5, 2010

AliZ enhanced

This is a piece I had finished about 2 months ago. Or I should say, I THOUGHT I finished 2 months ago. I put it up in my etsy and kept taking it off, as something just didn't click for me. Today I decided to break out some more goodies and have had it. I will be re-listing her on etsy, sometime tomorrow. THIS is how she looked before.
Much better now-at least I think so. There I go thinking again-LOL!!!
Anyway, as always---Thanks for checking in...

Yes, I know you probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth, after all it's been ages since I've posted. I managed to squeeze in a 3 week vacation in July, just up to Michigan to visit family and friends. It was wonderful to get away, it's VERY hot here in Atlanta during the summer and July is almost unbearable. Anyway, after having my puter in the repair a total of 3 TIMES, yes 3, in the past 1 1/2 months, I'm finally up and running 100%. At least that's what the tech told me. I'm grateful it didn't cost an arm and a leg, as my computer is fairly new and most was still covered under warranty.
Ok, so back to realty. I listed a piece on etsy a few short minutes ago. It's an original work on board-totally cool and kind of eerie, as the face is very realistic looking and she has a hypnotic gaze. Check it out and tell me what you think. LINK to etsy
Until next time---which will be soon people---I have some AWESOME NEWS to share with YOU!
Hang tight for now and make sure to stop by and visit me within a day or two!!!

Painting on etsy

I will be offering this painting on etsy, Tuesday June 29th. If you would like to inquire about this work, please contact me:

Sunday, June 20, 2010


This work was done in a small journal for a round robin I participated in. The face is an original sketch I drew on notebook paper. Decorative papers, rubber stamps, and paints---beeswax:)

Saturday, June 19, 2010


Here's my latest work, "Play". Once again, I found myself working with a color palette I'm not all too comfortable with. Pale tomato red, country blue, and honeycomb yellow were not my first choice(s), but when sorting my collage sheets and checking them against my sketch, this little gal demanded she be surrounded in those colors. Enjoy:)

In FuLL BLooM is SoLd!

I wanted to post that this piece is Sold! I had numerous emails because I just relisted it 2 days ago and people were asking why she looked different. I did alter her some, added dribbles, eyelashes, and enhanced her features more. CLICK to see the before
THanks to those who inquired. Perhaps, I'll offer another flat wall-hanging soon... ♥

Just listed this doll on etsy. Her name is "Winkle" as in Peri-Winkle... I ♥ her:)

Spring is in the air here in beautiful Atlanta and what better way to embrace it than to make art incorporating all things "spring"...
Yes, do "bloom where you are planted"

MerMaid collage on wood box

Finished this piece earlier today. I was inspired by the seahorse---when I seen him, I had to have him:)

Fabric Overlay

So here's my latest collage. I kept the face pretty simple because I wanted the emphasis more so on the fabric. The pieces I used were FREE samples from my local fabric store. All I did was take my handy-dandy soldering iron and burn a few holes here and there and finish the edges. Enjoy:)

Finished collage

I worked on this piece over the weekend. It was a challenge for me NOT to incorporate pink or purple into the palette. I'm pleased with this more SUBTLE THAN USUAL color scheme:)

New doll for etsy

Ok, I won't say when I first started this doll, but I'm nearly finished and will have her up on my etsy site soon. She's small, only 6" tall.

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Working on Alice

This is a painting I started about a month ago, still haven't finished---yes, I'm bad. I played around with it last night using ---I overlayed some words and shapes and really like it thus far. Much more to go, but thought I'd share what I've been up to:) ♥~Nat
