I just spent a day-and-a-half at a workshop to make this beautiful angel. What a wonderful experience! The teacher, Maria Saracino, is an award-winning artist whose work is beyond amazing.
Maria works with Super Sculpey to sculpt her characters. I had never worked with it until I took my first class with Maria.
Everything about the angel is handmade. We sculpted the face and hands (with delicate little fingers); applied make-up to enhance her pretty face; made the wings, the dress and the delicate underskirt. It is such a fascinating journey to see a block of clay and some bits of fabric turn into a beautiful angel that, I hope, will become a family heirloom.
Maria has turned Sculpey into a medium for fine art. Visit Maria’s site to see her unforgettable hand-sculpted characters.
P.S. Here’s me, with my completed angel. Do I look happy? Oh, yah!
I’m always looking for new digi artists…
I’ve been colouring digis for years and, to be honest, I’m pretty tired of the standard digis…you know, the cute little girls and adorable puppies. Well, recently, I discovered Christine Karron. Her digital images are beyond superb! Here are a few that I coloured last week and made into cards. I love, love, love Christine Karron’s work! (By the way, I coloured these with my Copic markers).
Aren’t these amazing digis! I had such a great time colouring them. They are so sophisticated and full of details. Try them out, for yourself. Visit Christine Karron!
Happy Easter, Everybody!
Leave it to Mo Manning to create another adorable Easter digi. This one is called Bella and Bronte. I think Bronte is so darn cute with his bunny ears on.
I made this card for my granddaughter, Ashleigh. She’s all grown up, now, but she’s still my little Sweetheart!
I used my Copic markers to colour the card and added furry details around Bronte’s bunny ears with a 0.4 fine-tipped marker. The stitching around the perimeter of the card was also done with a 0.4 marker. The white stitching on Bella’s outfit was created with a white gel pen. So, that’s it. I kept it pretty simple…I think less is more!
Thanks, so much, for dropping by!
P.S. Here’s a photo of the inside of my card…I always finish all four panels.
