Well here it is  Volume 5 of Just Cards - Steampunk and that is my piece on the top right hand side of the cover.  Above the magazine are two pages full of what I made.
I am ecstatic to be on the cover and there is more inside!! I can't believe Barnes & Noble actually sells this magazine.  You can get a copy there or at Scott Publications to see all the wonderful Steampunk art that everyone has contributed to the magazine.  Have fun reading it.
More to come....

The Ice Queen Collage at the Huntington Arts Gallery

Well last night was a blast, my husband, my son and I got together and went to the Huntington Arts Gallery where they showed my collage piece "The Ice Queen".  Since "Frozen" is such a big hit now, this fit in pretty nicely.  The place was packed and they had a nice reception with little bites and wine.  This was my very first time having a piece in a gallery and it was such a complete rush.  I really plan on doing this again in November at another gallery, only this time, I am going much bigger in size with the collage!  I hope you enjoy this piece.

Well here I am working away and what pops up on Facebook, but the magazine Just Cards
Steampunk.  I am on the cover.  Well I am one of the ones on the cover, up on the right hand side
There should be more of my work on the inside as well, I can't wait for it to come out so I can
see for myself.

One more thing off my bucket list, always wanted to make the cover of a magazine.

Now I am working on a bra for Adelphi University that involves designing an entire bra
anyway you like and submitting it for a silent auction.  Then they have a reception.  The best
part is that I get to be in a coffee table book with the picture of the piece and a story I must
write about it.

I am also working on my design projects for Punkyougirl Design Team.  It is a team that
makes dark projects, ie: steampunk and goth which is right up my alley.  I have been
pretty busy with all of this.  

The biggest thing that is happening is that tomorrow Friday, August 8th I will be
attending a reception at an art gallery where one of MY collages will be.
It is like a dream come true having my collage in a real art gallery, if someone buys it, that
would be the icing on the cake.

Well have to run, back to work and onto my next project
See you soon
Oh, any comments would be greatly appreciated.

I am excited to say that I was asked to be a guest designer for the Punkyougirl Design team's blog
The theme is dark ie: goth, steampunk, eerie.  All the things I love to work with.  I had a ball making this last collage.  Hopefully, it will pass inspection LOL.

Punkyougirl seems to have a wonderful team and a wonderful team leader.  I would be honored to become a member.

For this collage I used a canvas and painted it with black gesso
I added a piece of burgundy glitter tulle on top of the gesso
I adorned the piece with embellishments such as scrabble tiles that spell out GOTH GIRL

I added a rhinestone starburst. a steampunk snake and a steampunk pocket watch

Now for the best part, the girl, she is wearing a bustier with a garter and a tutu, I added wings to her back.  I colored her with copics, winks of stella pens, and a thin sharpie, her hair is black with some pink in it to make it more goth, I added a little heart on her headpiece which is a band of feathers that come all the way up with little pearls on them.  I also added tulle to make a little tutu on her and added some stickles for dimension.  At the top and bottom is some washi tape that I also added.
