This is Cupcake, my very first art doll. It was lots of fun and I got to use some everyday items in an unusual way. Her stocking were made with mesh (from a potato bag) and brushed on distress ink. Used my Big Shot (which I totally love) on some wrapping paper to make her skirt. Of course a cutout from a magazine of her cupcake hat.

I have pages for a journal swap which I'll post in a few days. I have a couple of other pieces that I've done and hope to work on a few more and post this weekend.

The weather is getting more spring-like and I'm hoping Spring is soon to follow.

My head is almost bursting with ideas and I will have to take a moment to try and get the ideas on paper. It never ceases to amaze me that most of the ideas happen at night, just before I fall asleep.

Got to go now - Happy crafting!

About Me

My photo
I am an avid photographer. My favourites are flowers, animals, nature. I have recently gotten into mixed media arts - painting, collage, ATC's and sketching. Lots of my photos are taken with art in mind. I live in the country with my husband, two dogs and a cat. I have two wonderful grandkids who visit often and keep me laughing. My motto is: Look for the good stuff in everything and everybody!
