Now on Tsu.....

Hi everyone
Due to Facebook not showing our posts unless you pay to promote your business, a LOT of us have gone over to other networking sites.  Many have now joined Tsu....Its fab and very much like what Facebook used to be like but with a few differences.  You can earn money from liking, sharing, commenting etc (although it is minimal - but hey, people have been able to earn some dollars) and it has a really positive and supportive feel to it.  So please feel free to come on over, (I will still be on Facebook - click HERE)  but am finding that Tsu is getting SOOOO much traffic, as EVERYONE sees your posts, so my Facebook page feels like its dying a slow death.  Please feel free to join up using my link -   I would REALLY appreciate it.

Hope you like my latest watercolour/ink/paper  mixed media on paper 'Lilac Tree'....will be offering A4 size prints of it in 2015 :)

My Website Details.....

Hi Everyone
Just wanted to post some info regarding my art website on those of you who don't know,  I am also on Facebook (where I sell quite a bit of my art), but Facebook is changing their rules, trying to get people to pay to promote their businesses......So.....I have felt the need to update my website, so that you not only can see the type of work I do, but now, you will know what artwork is currently available for sale (in my Jerrabomberra studio).  I post Australia wide and internationally.  The website is still a bit of a work in progress, with lots more artworks to add, but what is currently on their for sale, all have prices but just not all have sizes....yet!  Getting there though!!  Eventually you will be able to order straight from my website, but until I figure out how that is done, you can send me a message via the website or send me an email. I also love for people to contact me direct if you live locally if they would like to come by and browse the studio in person. Click on here to go straight to my website!  Don't forget, that I can do commission work, (more than likely too late now for Christmas!), and I also run workshops too.  I do have an Etsy shop, but I find that nothing much happens on there as it so competative these days, so I only have minimal stuff on there.
Happy browsing
Julie :)

'Buds in Bloom'....

Hi everyone
Ive completed this bright and colourful mixed media piece, and I have to say, that it looks more delish in the flesh than it does in the photo!!  The photo really does not do the colour and texture of the painting any justice!!  I have used acrylic paints, glitter glue, paper and wire.  Some of the 'flowers' have been machine sewn on paper then hand cut.  I love working with different mediums and then incorporating them into a painting!  I also love working with these citrus colours of watermelons, limes, lemons and oranges.   I hope you enjoy this one :)

Tiny and Mini Canvas.....

So with Christmas coming up, we have Christmas parties right??  And we also sometimes have to do the Secret Santa thing also right?  So, I thought, why not make something instead of trying to buy something this year.  It would be original and Im sure people would appreciate it more.  So I trotted off to the shops and bought some mini and tiny canvas' that come with matching little easels.  They are so cute!!  Not too intrusive if you don't wont large artworks, but something sweet to sit on a shelf.
Tiny Canvas:  These little cuties measure 8x6cm and they have my flower meadows on them.  Aren't they sweet!!
Above and Below: Mini canvas - These sweet ones are 11 x 11cm!

They have glitter and metallic paint on them to give sparkle and sheen!!

Below is a short little video of me making them....not very exciting but thought you might like a look!  Sorry about the end bit with my hubby yelling out! Just ignore that! LOL

Bloom Where You Are Planted....

Morning everyone
I created this pretty one yesterday, and I have used a favourite colour combo of mine with the purples, blues, mauve and aqua.  I love creating these, as I feel they are uplifting with their little quotes or sayings.  'Bloom Where You Are Planted'.....No matter where you are, how you got there, be the best person you can be and do the best that you can.....something to remember - not always easy to do though.
30 x 45cm
