Wahooo, I get to start the gallery Cheesy And we pretty artwork too! I got not one, but two gorgeous paintings:

It's a silhouette of Hogwarts! Soooo pretty. This picture does not do it justice. What's that odd scrolly stuff in the sky you say? Oh, just a wee bit of brilliance, here have a closer look:

Quotes from the HP series! Awesome! Some of my favorites are in there. Utterly brilliant and original. I love, love, love, love this piece. Seriously did I mention how much I love it?

Now for piece number two. I'm a HUGE fan of Kelly Vivanco. Her art is just so amazing and I adore her whimsical style. You can see pics of her work here http://www.kellyvivanco.com. Discovering my love for all things KV Jennifer painted a cute little wood panel  in Kelly's style:

I love the detail on it!

Thank you so much for both of the pieces you sent me! I feel very spoiled and I hope you love the package I sent you just as much!

I received from tapestrymlp!



Look how great it looks! I love the three piece art and I have been looking into it myself. But I have always been afraid to mess up three canvases instead of just one. This came out beautiful though. And the colors are just enough to brighten my room without screaming at me. I really think it came out so well with all the color shading on the butterfly. I could keep going. I love it. Thank you so much!

I need to find a proper home for this guy now...

Yay! So glad the painting made it there safely and that you like it Cheesy I've been obsessed with multi-canvas art for a while and this seemed like a good excuse to try the technique. So fun! I forget the name of the butterfly species but it's a native Australian species I believe. It was hard letting that painting go, LOL.

PureDeadBrill received! I'm going to post pictures however I'm not sure if they are close to their real color or not I didn't edit them before I sent them out. I did two pieces, a mushroom and a tree.


I tried to keep this as a doodle, tried to incorporate mushrooms that I saw on her wist and make it orange and brown to go along with her fav. colors buttttt it turned out more yellow than I expected when it was drying.

I had originally intended to make these flower circle things, on these 3 canvases. But I ended up making it a tree instead.
I made this with tissue paper, blue white and silver, a crapton of glitter glue, more tissue paper and a little paint for the tree. I'm a little worried it's too girly for PureDeadBrill's tastes but I tried :/


This is a close up of the branches and bark


Anyway I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it Smiley
