Mad Tea Party coming up… more details to follow!!!

Oh such a creative, lovely inspiring place to visit… For me, it’s kind of like the Audrey Hepburn film – Breakfast at Tiffiny’s… when she gets the blues and she heads off to Tiffiny’s… Well, I go here… A Fanciful Twist… But I go here when I’m happy too… for pure inspirations and day dreamings… x


Being grateful…

DSC00414

I have been thinking about the power of gratitude recently after talking to a very wise lady I know, aka, my mum! How being grateful and shifting focus to all the good ‘stuff’ in our lives of course attracts more good. Good relationships and the good things we desire. By even being grateful for some of the harder sides of life we get to experience good lessons. So, instead of asking ourselves, ‘why did this happen? Or, ‘why did I do that?’ We ask; ‘what can I learn from this’ and ‘what is the universe trying to show me?’ I believe…

Loving my ‘room’…

fairy-studio-April-2013

Yes it’s my studio but it’s so so much more…. It’s a special space just for me. I get to play in here with all of my favourite things. Art stuff, fabrics, books, my computer, (of course!) and all my other little nic-nacks that really have no other place to go. I have been known to spend quite some time creating montages of things I love; just for the fun of it and to surround myself with inspiration every time I step inside… For the last few weeks we have been decorating our house and stuff has been moved around…

Where I am right now, and Finding your Tribe…

So here I have put up a photo of the mess in the Fairy Studio at the moment… Well, actually I have sorted a lot of the ‘stuff’ out now but I am sure it will be back to this in no time…  And as I have been busy giving my house some much needed love in the shape of painting it and spring cleaning it and getting rid of some of the ‘stuff’ that is making it feel heavy; I haven’t really any new art to show you. I have however been keeping up with my art and soul…

Little canvas minis, visioning and something special for my mum…

-1med

These are 2 of my mini 5″ x 7″ canvases all finished and in my new Etsy shop. They even have a touch of gold and sparkle to add to their magic. The drawing evolved through a little pen sketch I did in my journal and after recreating her and painting her in different ways I then created a layered background for her to live in! It can be quite a long process waiting for the layers to dry but that’s ok if you have a few paintings on the go at the same time. I also incorporated some French…

We in the Fairy Studio have been pondering for a while now on opening an Esty shop… a place to sell originals and limited edition prints of my artwork… so check it out here! There is only one painting there right now but there are definitely more to come…


Experimenting with layers…

Finishing work is a focus of mine at the moment and also I have been ill for a while. But everything has come together to work in my favour… because my energy levels have been low and  therefore limiting me to just short bursts of work. This has given the layers proper time to dry and also allowed me ‘thinking time’ to decide what is going on next… and also I have given myself permission that I don’t have to be 100% happy with my results… That alone has given me the courage to just GO FOR IT! and get…

Finishing work and the perfection word…

IMG_0018

I am having a real problem finishing anything! I have no trouble at all starting working; drawing, sketching, planning… but when it comes to taking it further I get scared… It’s like I will be covering up the innocent freshness that a new painting always has, and that somehow, it will lose something by process. I know from past experience that yes, stuff can go wrong and actually (and obviously) this is a good thing because you learn and move forwards but somehow, at the moment at least, I can’t seem to let go. I have not forced, but have…
