Now that our friends have seen the nursery painting they commissioned me to do for their baby girl Paige, I can share it here with all of my Freaky Fanatics.
The painting itself is a mix of what the Mommy-To-Be was looking for mixed with inspiration from the nursery bedding and a bit of my own whimsical magic. I added various shades of glitter accents throughout that make it sparkle like a fairy blessed it. Hard to photograph how fun it glistens but here are some shots after I completed it a few weeks ago..
I am really looking forward to seeing how it looks hanging in Paige’s nursery and will definitely post photos of how it all blends with the look they are going for once I get photos. Until then go take a little visit to my portfolio website and check out the Drippings page to see more things I have painted over the years.
Stay Spooky & Magical,
Last night we attended a wedding for our friends Matt and Mari. When I had picked out the dress and necklace I wanted to wear for the big event (thank god for new with tag deals on Poshmark), I knew I wanted to make a special barrette to wear with it. My dress had lady skeleton cameo faces and an ornate gothic black design in velvet all along the edges. So I got an actual lady skeleton cameo piece to be the focal point of the barrette. My necklace was a black lace choker that was very vampy with beautiful red stones set in ornate gold metal (reminded me of the Dracula medallion necklaces you buy for Halloween costumes). So I re-painted the silver metal frame around the cameo to match the necklace. I was very happy how it all came together.

I chose this particular piece because it is still one of the funnest, wearable art commission pieces I have made to date. I am sure I will be one of the few whose entry comes from the dark side, but I hope to make Clive Barker and Doug Bradley proud! Plus, when haven’t my creations stood out from the norms 😉
This is a commission piece I completed for a Hellraiser horror movie fan. The center symbolizes Doug Bradley as Pinhead. It was made from Fimo Clay and hand painted to give it depth. Small nails were used as “pins”. The flower petals were all artificial flowers in various shades of blues, black and greys that were alternated between pieces of of patent leather snakeskin fabric that I cut to look like petals as well. I took necklace chain to symbolize the torture chains used in the film and of course splattered it with red paint to give that blood effect that all horror fans love! The customer was beyond happy with the end result.
