A Soul that Dances is Always in Love

Hi Gals.......

Happy to share with you all my cute little LO's which I truly loved working and happy to share something different take entirely.

Basically "Bharatnatyam" is one of the oldest Indian Classical Dance forms in India which came from Tanjore area in TamilNadu. This dance was performed by Dev Dasi those who lived in the temple and they believed that "God" is the only love of their life and they have dedicated their whole life to their "God". It highlights the beauty of strong lines leading out from the dancer's body and is embellished with intricately expressive hand gestures and elaborate story telling through exquisite facial expressions.

Here I have made four different small LO's with color combos and highlighted the textures, embellies, chippies.......I have used Prima Black Heavy gesso, Craft treat Stencils - new releases, Prima stencil, Lindy's Magical powders, Primas Waxes- Velvet blue, Turquoise, Lavender, Viva gold for highlights, flowers from my stash, Micro fine Glitters, Dusty Attic Chippies heat embossed with Lindy's EP.  I wanted to give a treat to you all with picking each color and giving a transformation creating these tiny lovely treat to eyes.....I'm quite happy with the outcome......!! Hope you guys like them too!!

Karmina - the Fairy

Hi Dearies.....

I have a Whimsical card to share with you all and the image is sponsored by our lovely sponsor

My name is Nikki Burnette and I am the artist of all the artwork that you see on this website! I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio, but I currently reside in Columbus, OH with my loving husband of 5 years, our daughter Ariana and our two adorable cats: Jensen and Willow. My daughter and kitties provide constant inspiration for me!
I have been an artist my entire life, but began my professional fantasy art career when I began to sell ACEOs on eBay in 2006. You may have heard of them, but in case you haven't, ACEO stands for Art, Cards, Editions and Originals. They are miniature paintings measuring 2.5x3.5" and are highly collectible. I was fortunate to be well received in the ACEO community and started to grow a fan base. People started asking for originals and prints in bigger sizes and they also wanted a variety of products featuring my artwork. So I started to branch out and over the past 8 years it has turned into something that I feel so fortunate to have now. My art is collected worldwide and I'm licensed with a variety of different companies. I have also been lucky enough to be published in a book and a few magazines and online publications. I also attend fairs and conventions across the Southeast and have recently had the privilege of having my artwork on the cover of the ImagiCon 2010 program cover!
I have been asked before "Why fantasy art? And this is my response:
Fantasy art is where my heart lies. I love being able to escape the reality of our world for even just a few hours and enter a new fantasy realm where witches play tricks on Halloween Night, fairies fly around the sweet smelling rosebuds, and mermaids swim gracefully through the water with their dolphin friends.
I mainly use watercolor and ink to create my fantasy fairies, witches, vampires, pirates, steampunk and mermaids and offer my art in many different sizes including ACEO (2.5x3.5"), 5x7", and 8x10". I turn my original art into a variety of items to offer you a fun way to experience my art! I create hand-embellished limited edition prints, custom paintings, magnets, stickers, bookmarks, pocket mirrors, buttons, coloring pages and more! These are all made in my studio and shipped to you by me, the artist!
I feel so privileged to be able to do something that I enjoy so much every day and am thrilled that you have taken the time to read a little bit more about me and my art! Thanks for stopping by!

Steampunk - DT Reveal

Hi Dearies......

My first post for the month and I'm so happy to share this grungy Steampunk mini canvas which I created for Off the Rails Challenge blog as my DT Post. Its super exciting to be a part of this lovely talented bunch of gals.....Love this oppurtunity.

So here we go......I share the mood board and my take on the same.

I have taken the inspiration from the mood board and created this

I have used packing cloth on the canvas.

  Here I have used lace, corrugated pieces, and                                                                                          chipboard pieces and adhered it to the canvas.

 I have adhered gears and applied White gesso.

 Now here is the playtime......I have used Lindy's sprays and magical powders for color and texture.....added few mini art stones for extra texture and played on ...

  I have applied clear crackle once the paint dried. Once everything dried I applied white gesso to given it a dry look.

I added a small handwritten sentiment and finished the canvas.

I hope you guys get inspired and play along this month challenge with us.
Waiting to see your creations and share of work.....Hop on and Play along gals...
