Well my mojo has been playing tricks on me but the past couple weeks it's come back full force! I have been eating, living and literally dreaming about paint, ink, canvas, papers and all things art!  I have a HUGE canvas sitting on my art table waiting on it's second coat of gesso and I've just finished a small canvas.  Here are a couple of my latest projects!  Wish me luck on the giant canvas!
This is my husband and sweet granddauther Sydney.  I love pictures of big burly guys with tiny little sweet! I made all the flowers, inked everything up with Tim Holtz turquoise and painted and distressed Dusty Attic scroll at the top of the circle...I got the piece at the Scrappy Chic Online store (see link to the left of my page to get your own!)  I will soon be adding a tutorial here on how to make the flowers...

This is a little box with magnetic lid that opens to hold small treasures.  It's for my granddaughter's nursery and it was so much fun to create! Lots of torn and distressed patterened paper and bling...

The last one is the painting I finished last weekend.  It's a abstract floral and I am soon going to paint two more similar to go with this one, which is hanging solo in my bathroom right now.


  1. Love your painting, Mel! So cool! And your granddaughter Sydney, is absolutely gorgeous! Your page and magnetic box are very precious, indeed!

  2. Hello my honey, just wanted to tell you I love that crown shaped treasure box great theme for our Prince William and Kate's wedding over here. Hugs, still thinking of you all. xxx
