Man, does time ever fly by. This Friday, like two sleeps from now I will be heading to Vermont with a few of my girls for the weekend and the Burlington Art Walk. It will be my first international art show and it is at the amazing Vintage Inspired Lifestyle Marketplace. I had done a post a little while back about discovering it and meeting the lovely Mary, who is the owner. I am pretty excited!!
My family was supposed to be coming with me and we were going to make it a mini vacation but things came up and it has turned into a girls weekend. I am a little sad the fam won’t be with me but getting to hang out with my girls should be a blast. Everything just kind of came together at the last minute and I was lucky a few were able to come.
Anyway, I just wanted to share a couple more completed Goddess girls. The first is a steampunk themed one called “The Adventurer” I started with a Graphic 45 tissue paper which I layered orange paint over. I then covered it with some Tim Holtx masks and some chipboard gears which I made with my Cuttle Bug and a Tim Holtz die, which I then applied white paint to.
Once I was done using the gears as masks, I painted them black and used them in the piece as part of her dress and in the balloon. Here she is with her little corset dress and short bangs.
I really grunged up some flowers with black sprays and ink for her dress. I also used more gears from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology collection.
An old tag and domino from my collection just finished off the corner of the piece.
And the quote…
The second piece started with Christy Tomlinson tissue paper. Love her stuff and her, as a matter of fact.
Added some pink doilies, blue chevrons and a couple other elements with stencils and off I went. This one came together in one sitting. Love those days when the creativity just flows.
Here she is finished, I called it “Sweetness”.
Brings me back to the sweetness of youth, with the wind blowing in my hair and not a care in the world.
Looking forward to showing my girls around Burlington and Stowe. If any of you are in the area, please drop by and say hi, I would love to see you!!
