I have found my calling! (?)

Maybe? Not sure but . . .

Recently, it has become quite clear to me that where I feel most at home in the world of Art is in among that group of truly brilliant and creative, or just brilliantly creative individuals who aren't afraid to dabble in it all and limit themselves only to their imagination's. I'm talking about those who aren't afraid to raise the quirk value, balance on the edge of creative insanity, and express themselves in every right. I have decided that I want to be a mixed media artist when I grow up. For now, in my heart it is what I am. What talent there is in me remains to be seen but I am going to give it my best and we shall see.
In this endeavor, I have been scouring the web looking for opportunities to share in this quirky little community of artists, learn as much as I possibly can and at the start, just really try to have fun with it.
Below are two of my newest digital creations intended to mimic the real thing . . .




And here is a sneak peek at a little project I am working on-

A Curious Thing . . .



with wings, of course.

The recipe for this layout:
Add together an antique pedestal table, a vintage and bedecked bottle, an irresistably cute face, a paper skirt and a pair of wings. Then add a flower pot for a hat and Tiffany lamp for a parasol and you have a very curious thing; "a thing with wings".

I have recently made a goal to expand my horizons and participate in some new challenges I haven't yet tried. This ATC was created for the Theme Thursday Challenge

Sad but True . . .



Persnickety Chick has decided to hang up her "Creative Team" hat for a while. Alas I will never be able to stay fully away from the digital scrapping world so chances are you will still see me from time to time. Above is my latest layout. I had so much fun creating it, I wasn't sure when to stop!(click here for credits). I love anything Alice in Wonderland related and Tangie's new kit is so loaded with so many amazing things!

Oh and FYI, I have also decided that I will be devoting more time to expressing my artistic self through more tangible "three-dimensional" projects. Be sure to check back in for pics of my finished pieces.

things that make me go "heehee"!
