Happy 4th Blogiversary to Me!!

Four years ago this week, I was sitting in a movie theatre waiting for the film to start and I realized all of a sudden what I wanted to call my blog.  This Sweet Madness.  And ever since then, I've been sharing my art here with all of you.  I can't believe it's been four years!

I thought I should create something using lyrics from that song, which is Sarah McLachlan's "Angel", so I made this:


Isn't she so pretty??  I just love how she turned out.  I'm getting more and more into watercoloring.

It's my 4th Blogiversary so challenges galore!!

Thanks so much for looking and celebrating this milestone with me!  Laters!!

Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge - Week 32 - Frosted Film

I wouldn't be me if I wasn't turning this in at the last minute!!!!  The Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge this week was Frosted Film, which I looooove.  You can find this technique in Tim's book, A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 which you can purchase here.

Their lovely sponsor is the Funkie Junkie Boutique!  They're offering up a $25 gift card!


My card features a Frosted Film border (and that doily die that I FINALLY got and will be using on EVERYTHING now!) and I love the vintage feel of it!

It doesn't really show up in the photo, but it's shimmeryish and inked purple.

My Heart Still Hurts

Two years today and I still can't believe it happened.  If you're a Gleek you know that today's the anniversary of Cory Monteith's death.  I sometimes feel like I felt after Kurt Cobain shot himself, pissed off and cheated.  But lately I've just been sad, and watching S1 episodes, and I made this.

It's Friday so of course it's it's time for another last-minute entry to the COC3 challenge!  I've actually done this technique a few times before, and I always find that it works only half of a time.  Kinda sucks if you're time-crunched for a project.  You can find the Paint Resist technique in COC3.  If you don't have a copy of COC3, you can get one here.

Their amazing sponsor this time around is Inspiration Emporium!!  They're giving one lucky artist a $50 gift certificate!  WOW!!
