"Heather Valentin is creative , award winning, modern-day fantasy and whimsical artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years.
She began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age.
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and brush stroke. Her subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's artist portfolio has expanded to include such clients as Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils and can now be found at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across the globe. "
So now, it's time to show you my DT project for this week. I have a "thing" about doing tags....I LOVE IT! They are so versatile to do! Here is my project:
For this week I'm using the Lacy Sunshine image, Glass Slipper Enchantress. Again, I always start out coloring my image first, before doing anything else. And although you may not see it very well, she has a lot of sparkle on her shoe as I wanted to give it the appearance of glass. Plus I put pink stickles on her dress. Once I was done with that, I cut out my 1st layer for the tag while she was drying. I then added the 2nd layer. Before adhering the layers, I distressed them using the Tim Holtz distress tool. I mounted the 2nd layer onto a thin piece of chipboard. I layered 2 pieces of lace that I got from Gone Artsy.I also added pearl drops on top of the laces, then a pink satin flower in the center with some white leaves, a little black sprig of flowers, and several tiny flowers all over. At the top, I had stenciled a heart.
I hope you enjoy this tag, and that you join us in the challenge this week!
Blessings and Happy Crafting,
