Hi!!! I am so excited I am able to post some art on my blog!!!! I have not been able to post anything new because blogger has not been working for me. Every time I would try to post something it would freeze up. I have so many new piece to share. Today I though I would show some of my new art prints.
My husband surprised me in August with a new Epson printer, I love it!!! We had an HP printer that I had been using to create my cards, ornaments, and tags, but I never felt comfortable using it for more than that. The printing quality on my new printer is amazing, the detail and the color is breathtaking. I can make prints of all my art including prints of my acrylic paintings and it picks up all the details!
The first print I am sharing is my watercolor fox. The materials used to create this fun mixed media piece include a vintage teal sewing hoop, a vintage bead, vintage thread, silver glitter, a silver pipe cleaner, and material from an old pair of white Capri pants that I grew out of.  
The next art print piece I want to share is a watercolor print of a pastel colored owl. I love this owl art especially his eyes!!! The materials used in this mixed media art include a vintage sewing hoop, vintage thread, vintage lace, gold glitter paint and material from a pair of moss green shorts that I grew out of. (All the recycled clothes I use in my art were  pre-Abbey,  I think she helped make my hips wider!!!lol)
This owl art features a print of my favorite colored pencil drawing. The print has been mounted on a piece of wood that I painted with a yellow ochre acrylic and then stained with burnt umber paint. Vintage blue thread was used to decorate the board before I attached the owl image with six rusted nails.
Next is my Little Green Elephant. He has been attached to a piece of wood with three vintage mint green tacks. The wood was painted with orange, mint green, and cream acrylic paint. There are three tiny white flowers in the upper left corner. The art was stained with burnt umber acrylic paint.
The last art print I am going to share is my Little Pumpkin watercolor print. Wood, vintage tacks and an old book page are the materials used in this art. The wood was painted black and light blue and then stained. The print was sewed to the old book page before I attached the paper to the wood with  the four vintage yellow tacks.
I have about 17 other new piece of art to share, including Christmas art and a few new Owl paintings.
