One of my Fav clients wanted some special Easter baskets for her children. She asked me to decorate these for her twins. They will use them for Easter Bunny Goodies, but also later for storage in their rooms! I did my own technique of "Paper Applique" over handpainting. I used a wonderful sealer that gives a hard glasslike shine!
The fishing themed one is actually a baby boy gift for a friend of hers. The Dad is a Pro Fisherman! I think I will have to make some of these for "Art On The Lake" coming up in April!

Aren't these great? My daughter just finished a competition with these beautiful Alice in Wonderland pieces. She got First Place for the "Books are WONDERFUL" portrait of Alice for 2-dimensional, and First Place for 3-dimensional for "Bad HARE Day" which is the mixed media collage in the old window frame. (I love the funny quote in the picture)
The Wonderland necklace and the "A Wonderful Book" book sculpture were additional items in this series she made with an old copy of the story and vintage and hand sculpted items. She competed with these last two at the Jr. Beta Club convention this week in Mobile, AL. (She actually won a first place trophy there with another collage for Mixed Media, but that is another subject.) She used the old book pages for the background of the portrait and the book remnant for the sculpture. She sculpted all of the characters and items in the collage.
This contest was Winterfest Jr. which is a county wide art competition for students from K-12. She is in the seventh grade, and has placed first in this competition for three years in a row!
I just wanted to brag a little..Thanks for listening!
