Happy Creating

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday! I've been so busy. Finally finished a Secret Santa package that was due... I mailed it yesterday! Now I have a long to do list. I joined a few swaps at ATCsforAll, and MAW. I was thinking of dropping a couple but I have never withdrawn from any swap and I don't want to start doing that. I have committed now I have to execute. Today I have been drawing like crazy most of them are sketches. I'll post as soon as I'm finished with them.

I had a hard time with one of the themes and end-up enjoying it the most. The theme was "Inanimate object with bat wings" and I think I delivered. All my backgrounds are melted crayon!

My Backgrounds

I'm a mixed media experimenter, I love collage, stamping, hand/drawn and painting. I've been trying different techniques; I did some crayon batik and encaustic wax. While I was experimenting with these two techniques, I created a new technique that I call "Melted Crayon". I like to detail my work with acrylic paints and color pencils.

Here is a sample, of my work this one is hand painted.
