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
