Christmas Cupcakes

Here are some Christmas Cupcakes which I drew recently. I ended up drawing two with snowmen on them because they were so cute!

Mind Your Manners!

I took this picture of the two women at Greenfield Village in Dearborn over the summer. I didn't even realized the one woman had her hand down her skirt until later. I've been looking for a way to use this picture in a collage ever since. I finally figured it out with the ephemera card from 7gypsies and the rest of the collage followed from there.

Vintage Postcards

I've been collecting vintage postcards for the last few months to make my Perilous Vacations. They usually cost anywhere from 50 cents to $2.00 a piece, so imagine my delight when I scored these vintage postcard packs for a dollar each at an antique mall.

I couldn't really see the other cards cause the string was tied so tight, but I figured I would pay a dollar for the ones on the top anyway. There was close to seven cards in a pack and I was so excited to untie them when I got home. I especially like the U.K. ones and there were lots of them I could use for my Perilous Vacations!

Perilous Vacations #8

Becky was a big fan of the ducks in The Peabody's Hotel lobby fountain, but the penguins at The Tall Oaks Hotel Restaurant were another story.

The Forest Fairy

She is a contact paper transfer collage and I used a bird cut from some wallpaper sheets that I bought on Etsy.

Faith knew her white swimsuit was stunning. Apparently, the local lounge lizard thought so too!

Perilous Vacations #6

Leigh had heard the motel rented cats with their rooms, but she didn't know she was going to be part of the cat's meal plan.

I drew these kawaii inspired doodles recently when I was feeling cranky and depressed. Then I colored them in with photoshop.
