Welcome to my blog. Well I feel summer has really past now up until last week we still had wonderful autumn temperatures at around 21c. But during the weekend snow fell in the South Island and we had very cold wind and rain and yesterday it was 11c so the temperatures dropped 10 degrees in 24 hours. I'll have to get me winter clothes out now.
Congratulations to our winner this week over at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 it was great work and I love looking at all your work and creativity.
This week we have another lovely sketch by Sally with two different sized circles under the square image on top.
Sketch # 90
Here is another look at my card also with a glimpse of the inside. I used this really cute image from our sponsor this fortnight which is Lacy Sunshine Stamps. I used
Cami Camomile Flower Pot Pretties.
This week our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine, I couldn't wait to create my card using my Lacy Sunshine image, all of Heather's images are just so cute.
Heather Valentin is creative , award winning, modern-day fantasy and whimsical artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years.
She began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age.
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and brush stroke. Her subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's artist portfolio has expanded to include such clients as Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils and can now be found at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.
