Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Art Anthology

For my second project at Art Anthology this month, I did a dimensional  canvas with thoughts of my friends who have fought breast cancer.  Three won the battle and one did not.  This is also for my Gramdma and my aunts, Rita and Fran who also have had this horrific illness.  I gave this piece to one of my survivor friends yesterday. 
To find out how I made this canvas piece with the dimensional fabric flower and the butterflies, check it out HERE on the Art Anthology blog.  And, as always, thanks for looking.  All comments are so appreciated.

A bit of Halloween magic with Art Anthology

Every October, I create a new piece to add to my haunted houses, the Nevermore Poe box complete with raven, my Witchy Woman and the masque.  This year, using the amazing products from Art Anthology, I created a witch's cup.  For complete directions and detailed photos, check out the Art Anthology blog HERE.

Hopefully, I can repost some of the other Halloween projects mentioned above or at least provide my blog links.  Most are on my Pinterest board, Creating under the Palms

Getting hyped up for Halloween

Every September, I get the Halloween itch.  I feel the need to create in shades of black, orange, purple etc.  Spider webs and potions spin through my head.  I've already started with two projects.  One will premier on Art Anthology on Oct 11 and this one for Gecko Galz will go live at that site sometime this weekend.

I have been watching all the previews for the animated movie, The Box Trolls, and, inspired by them, created one of my own.  I started with a box that enclosed a skin lotion I love.  It had a very detailed print that I covered with Gesso from Art Anthology.  After the Gesso dried, I painted on Art Anthology's Dimensional Crystal paint in Amethyst and used a black marker to edge.  The images on the box are a combination of downloads from Gecko Galz and our cross promo provider Rhonda's Originals.  I sure had fun with this one and it will join the other Halloween creations I've made over the years.

The downloads from Gecko Galz may be purchased at Gecko Galz etsy shop.   If you want lots of treats without tricks, check out both sites for great image downloads.
