Greetings everyone! I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of The Blue Daisy art stamp collection, ETA tomorrow evening. Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm about this collection. In addition to cowgirls, as you know I also promised to give you a stable, a horse and a corral. These items are truly too large for stamps so I created them as templates so that you can have everything on your wish lists! Accordingly, you have my permission to screen capture these images. If you have any issues with quality, please let me know and I can always e-mail them. Of course, these are for your personal use, including for teaching projects, but any other use requires written permission. Thank you for your continued support of my little stamp company, and please enjoy!
The new characters have evolved. There will be five new outfits, as well as some sassy lacy items. Last week was all about adding little extra items to the plates. The new characters are in manufacturing. As soon as I have an ETA, I will post.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., today we celebrate his birthday as well as his legacy of nonviolence, unconditional love, peace and forgiveness. Here is one of my favorite Dr. King quotes: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Have a great week everyone!
Along with The Blue Daisy, there will be an updated Flower Fairy available in February 2017. This is something that I have been hoping to accomplish for some time. I think she will be a fun addition to the Theater of Dreams collection. You can use the face shown, or the one on the right which was has been edited to make the hat fit more comfortably. However, the old torso was the primary reason for the change. I think this little dress works much better. The legs and shoes were also edited, and an additional pair of shoes and a pocket are now available. The original legs and shoes still work just fine. The face shown on the fairy, arms and wings, from plate 11, are unchanged. There have been some additional accessories added to the collection, the teapots, umbrella, flower wand, a daisy, and a few new quotes. Anything that you already have will still work with this new torso, but now you also have some additional options to play with. You can check out the new plates on my web site Theater of Dreams collection, but the new additions will not be available until some time in February.
I've got lots of great plans, and I am poised to hit the ground running this year! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative New Year. I am inspired and humbled by all the many beautiful pieces you create with Character Constructions, and looking forward to our continued friendships and art collaborations.
I am loving this darling little Christmas paper doll and snow globe by Brenda Enright. She created the doll with stamps from the Paris Flea collection, and the tiny reindeer and santa are from the Vintage Christmas collection!
Woke up to this sweet little composition from my art sister Lisa Guerin this morning! Thank you Alexander McQueen for the reindeer fashion inspiration. And, yes, the reindeer stamps are in and as you can see they are quite versatile and there are three sizes. Antlers are not just for reindeer anymore.
