A new idea.

I am working on a ambitious project of a giant dinosaur egg. Perhaps with a dinosaur inside. It now sits with four layers of paper pasted on. Will do more layers and then go to the next step. Stay tuned for updates on this project.

Create Yourself Instead of Looking For It!

blank-canvasOMG! Have you ever looked at a blank canvas, a blank piece of paper or a blank day for that matter and wonder what the hell to do with it?!?! Or even worse wonder why and who would care either way?!?!

Would it matter if we chose random colors for the painting or a jumble of words that do not make since together on the paper? Do we spend our days doing random insignificant things that have no purpose? What is the meaning of it all?

I discovered recently that my life is a work of art. It is what I create it to be. It can have purpose and make a difference. Just making art occasionally and dragging through daily routines were not cutting it. I wanted to be part of something big. Something that would help people. Art has been scientifically proven to improve many aspects of a person’s health. I want my art to inspire others to live and live on purpose.

I have spent a whole lot of time in deep thoughts, research and meditation. I knew when I started my art and my many web presences that I wanted to share my experience, love and compassion with others who have or are living with their personal challenges and karmic lessons. I began writing and contemplating how I wanted to do it. Many things came up in this process.

I decided that writing and speaking would be part of this project. I decided that art and creativity were a major role as well. I came up with a guideline and a path I want it to take. I took time to get rid of fears and insecurities. I restructured and re-prioritized my schedule to balance the project and my home responsibilities.

I have sculpted me in a new and unique way. I have been absent from you guys for five months. First off I apologize for that and secondly I did this so I could define exactly what I was sharing, how I was going to share it and why I was sharing it. You are important and are worth the effort and focus required to inspire and empower you.

Thank you for your patience and I look forward to our journey together,

Love Kristi V

The Spider Witch’s Hat, and Mr. Moon all are ready to go. I am still working on my Creepy Clown’s hair and then he will be complete.  I will do better photos to post for sale but wanted you to get the first peek. Let me know what you think.

How I Made the Leaf

0

The leaf was a fascinating project. I wanted to make a dead leaf. So I took wire and taped cardboard to it. I cut out shapes of cardboard that matched each part of the leaf. I then used a wire to position it like it was crumbling in on itself. Then I applied layers of paper mache clay to resemble more of the folds and grooves of the leaf. I had to be careful to make sure every seam and edge were sealed with clay. Then after it set for a week with each layer applied, I painted it with various colors to resemble a dead leaf and shadows from the folds. Then it was sealed and applied to the pumpkin.

I really enjoyed this little addition. Just might repeat it.

Another character developing is a vampire pumpkin. His name has not come to me yet. I am still working on his eyes, details, and if I want a hat of some sort. Colors are definitely black and white, with a little blood of course.

Feel free to share ideas and keep check on the progress.

Creepy Clown

Well one of the pumpkins is now taking shape. I am seeing a creepy clown develop. I am now fine tuning colors and a neat hat. I was quite tickled at how he developed. I love the nose, crazy teeth, and I have some bizarre ideas for the eye. The wink was a last minute thought, but worked out nicely. I think I am going to let him be a orange pumpkin, and the face will be a light orange. Also, I haven’t come up with his name yet. We will see.

Feel free to leave ideas and check in periodically on the progress.
