A little Pixie Magic!

Haven't painted one of my "bubble people" for a while...and I did promise Pixie one of her very own :D

I got a great bargain at the Works this weekend, can you believe this pack of little canvases only cost £1.99!!! (I bought 2 packs lol) They are wonderfully sturdy and a great size for posting art to friends(5x7) :D
 covered the canvas with a piece of home painted paper(made for collage work), and drew in the figure...
and started adding colour.
When I think of Pixie, I think of purple and gold...bright and smiley and magical :D...and full of energy :D

...a layer of yellow glaze added a warm fuzzy feeling ...as making things for friends should :D

Absolutely had to be shimmery and shiny....
...very shiny in the sun!
Hope she likes it lol
I would like to enter this as my "Piece a Week" over at Rita's blog, and in my friend Manon's Paper Saturdays Challenge (home made paper base layer)

I am now feeling all happy and smiley after spending so much time thinking about how many friends I have since joining the online community :D
Enjoy :D

  1. What a coup with the canvas! Always makes our hearts quicken when we get a good 'deal'! :o) I love the look you achieved with the yellow glaze. Whoever receives this will be doing the happy dance. And yes, we are so lucky to have to many wonderful on line friends. It always amazes me what has happened and who I have met since I began blogging (Nov. 2009). When did you begin blogging Gina? I thought I'd be one of those people who gave up in less than three months. Surprise!~ I'm still here. Hugs, Donna

  3. I don't know Pixie, but I can still tell you that she'll love it. No one can see the shine of one of your Bubble People and not adore them. They have the power to make a room happy and a person feel loved ;-)
