Other faeries

I'm so excited to be showing at Impresario Artisan Market in Cobourg in December. I have started created some new works for the exhibit. It's going to be all 'Sugar Plum and Other Faeries'.

These pieces measure 12" x 16", a fair bit larger than most of my work. They also combine my love of art and craft. Each uses scrapbook and other typical 'crafting' supplies (yay! Graphic 45 and Petaloo) and well as painting and collage. I'm pretty darned pleased with them :)

Each of the pieces has a painted element on top of the collage work. It was challenging and fun to try and paint on the differently textured surfaces. Here are some 'in-progress' detail shots of a few of the painted elements in the pieces.
