New Altered Matchboxes

Hey guys,
I am sorry I have been so lax in regards to updating this blog. I have so much going on right now with my wedding coming up and a few health problems that something has have had to give. Unfortunately, that means my blog and website are in serious need of some new art postings. Even though there hasn't been much activity here I assure you there is a lot of new juicy art in my studio right now. I just need to find the time to photograph and upload it all. :) So expect a huge influx of arty goodness after December. In the mean time, here are a few pieces I just finished to wet your appetite!
These are altered matchboxes in two sizes done with acrylic paints and mediums, mica, found objects and more. These were demo pieces for Alpha Stamps so the blank matchboxes, many of the metal embellishments and collage images can be found on their site. Enjoy!

"The Meaning of All"









"Hearts Fire", The following piece is for sale in my Etsy store.
"Bleeding Love"


"Relic", the following piece is for sale in my Etsy store.

These are stunning, Sarah. The colors go so well with the themes you chose.

It's been so long since I have been to your blog, I didn't even realize you were getting married. Congrats!
