On a recent trip to my local Thrift Store, (GONE PICKIN!) I found these awesome comic books, and had to put them to good use. I took these plain flats, and covered them in Mod Podge; images from the comics and sealer. Make sure to also cover them with a couple of coats of water based sealant, and about a week to dry. My daughter loves them!!!

Sadness creeps up, and starts through a peep hole. Crawls its way down and makes you collapse. Then one day faith opens your eyes and you finally see a beautiful world above. Nina C.
I used Prima Fairy Belle Papers and flowers. I covered the vase with resin and sprinkled diamond dust and glitter. I love this layout and am totally in love with this collection.

I am a Mixed Media Artist, and consider my style Avant Garde, moving, expressive and evocative. I always create based on how I felt at some point in my life. This is why I started crafting, I found a way to express myself through my art.
This picture is of my beautiful daughter when I did her makeup as the Black Swan. I love this picture, because I wanted her to give me sadness, and she did a great job! This picture was taken last year in February and still remains one of my favorites. It makes me feel darkness when I look at it. I used the beautiful papers from The Meadow Lark Collection by prima which I absolutely love! I also added my handmade spray and Prima flowers. I used some prima stamps to add the journaling part.
