Magical Terrarium of Wishes

S-Corfee-GTS-WishTerrarium-LogoFlag

Here is the little terrarium themed artwork i made for the GTS i referred to a couple posts back. Yes. Children’s market. That’s me.

The top 50 (among about 1,000 entries) will be announced tomorrow. You guys should see the spectacular work rolling in. It is re-DONK-ulous! My husband bought a lottery ticket this week too, so we both have about the same odds : ) But i’m just happy to have participated in my own little way. i like to create a little world & pack it full of discoveries. This being intended for kids wall art, i imagined it being the last thing a little girl would see before drifting off to sleep. Your home, your room, your soft bed ~ that should be the place where wishes grow, right? Happy and content amongst your family who love you?

The instruction for the contest was to include words/lettering of some sort and i wanted the words i picked to be very hopeful and positive and empowering. We all just want our kids to feel that they can dream and imagine and someday make those things come true? Right?

Lots of color + Lots of pattern & texture + Sugary sweet little girly character + Magic

Here are some detail crops. Good luck to all those who submitted!

Completed Works – GROWING!

Another custom commission is finally complete! These images show a 4 foot tall wood plank that has been lovingly sanded by the client before they gave it to me to paint and decorate. SO sweet. So much thought and effort was put into the planning of it all! i am making up coordinating stickers that can be written on to mark the date and Emily’s age at each measurement point. The art is done is such a mix of media! Acrylic, watercolor, marker, colored pencil, gel pen, ink…even a little Sharpie! It was important to me to get a storybook, watercolor-y, and colored pencil texture to it all…but till get crisp edges and contrast with the fine tip Sharpie.
