Pretty Girl Modern Girl Collage

Here's my latest Modern Girl.

I've really enjoying making tweens lately. I think it's a great bit of childhood to represent because it's not too babyish nor is it too womanly. 

My favorite part of this one is how she's standing in a rainbow. It gives the impression that this angelic girl really can reach for her dreams no matter how big. 

And this message, I wish we could all internalize it... young. 

It would save so much heart ache.

Punk Fairy Girl Original Collage

So I had to make another fairy girl using the lovely Jill stamp from Stampotique. 

Couldn't help myself :-)

There was some serious Gelli Plate madness going on with this fairy girl. Every part of her, save for the book paper is mono-prints I made by hand using my Gelli Plate. Oh my gosh, how I love that thing!

Did you know Julie Balzers's Blazonry stencil for TCW is PERFECT for making wings. Seriously. Perfect. 

And I used the little skull stamp from Bombshell Stamps Panther Tattoo set

Available on Etsy

Speaking of Etsy, I have a sale going on through Monday:
 $10 off purchase of $25 or more with coupon code: 10DOLLARSOFF

For the Bride: Mixed Media Art

I made this for someone close to me who is getting married next week.

And I tried to make the dress as close to her wedding gown as I could.

She's having colorful banners and mixed flowers in her bouquet.

I wish them a happy future together.
