Halloween journal

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 26, 2013, 7:09 AM


So my fav night of the year is coming :) The best horror movies are shown on tv, and I'm going to be off from work. Sounds perfect for me! LOL, and add that I have 3 gorgeous black cats ...life is good ;)

Anyways! I'm soon going to have a line of 1/12 dollhouse miniature Halloween related artwork posted here and for sale at my Etsy shop, pumpkins and books, preparation boards, some furniture, cauldrons, potions, scrolls, food ... all the things a witch may need to have her home well equiped for the upcoming Samhaim ;).

I'm going to post soon the artwork mentioned above, and I'm considering the idea of a giveaway, YAY!


See you soon, or I should say; write your soon!

Hugs!

Book commissions and custom orders are open

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 7, 2013, 3:37 AM


Hello,

This entry is going to be about special commissions (in case some of you out there are wondering about them).
Here's a small guide so as to give you an idea of how this works, if you have questions pls go ahead and send me a note ;)

-my books are not re prints (unless asked to do so) of other books, meaning that I don't just scan and put together. I like the creative process when designing something specially made even if it takes a bit more time.

-I do mostly functional books (which open like real ones) and living books. This doesn't mean that I'm not open to suggestions! If you're looking for a "hidden potion" book, then that can be arranged. I love challenges!

-Your book is going to be unique, and I'm going to include a COA signed by me –Certificate of Authenticity- with your purchase.

-In order to start working in a custom piece, I'm going to ask info about what you have in mind such us the theme, art, aging/or not, if you'd like to be just a book or a piece of jewelry and so on.

-the price depends on the kind of artwork you'd like it to have, it's not the same to have it all printed than doing the artwork by hand, but this is up to you, your preference. It also depends on the amount of pages you'd like your book to have, covers design … embellishments … etc

-the price includes shipment BUT not tax/vat.
-the payment goes like this: half before starting and the other half when I let you know that it's ready to be shipped.
-I only accept payment under the form of money (through PAYPAL)

Thank you for reading!

I guess the subject says everything but, i'm going to be more detailed ;)

As you see, i'm very into making mini/little books lately, also adding them into a scene matching the books' subject.
This new series of books is called "books of darkness", and into this theme; vampires, creatures of the night, from world folklore are going to be the stars. It's going to be fun and interesting also to make a small scene to put them :):)

Hope you like it :la::la:!

I could add thanks for faving, commenting and giving opinion on my work, but specially for taking the time to look at it and give me your opinion, this means a lot to me 'cos allows me to improve and become a better artist.


Thanks and see you soon.

From time to time i work on this project i have in mind, it's a mini 1/12 scale shop but not at all conventional.
So, i thought it'd be a good idea to art trade small mini items with other talented people around :) so far i have one of the characters living there, a very very nice doll made by steffi786 , check her work 'cos she makes very nice things!.

Those of you interested in art trading with me, just send me a note and we can talk about it.


See you around & good luck :)

Hi everybody :)

I just wanted to tell you that, i'm going to be working on my 1st tutorial.
My mini "Making an afternoon snack" got so many lovely comments and more than one person asked me how i did it. So, this tutorial is going to be about the making of it.

Why this piece? the answer is simple; i used other elements than fimo; there's "glass" made of plastic, and no liquid fimo but, a mix made using ... other things ;).
My point guys is; here in Argentina we can buy mini stuff imported from the US and the UK at just 1 store ... imagine how expensive is to buy there! so, it's more fun and creative to make it yourself if possible, a way to train your creativity and imagination.

So, in a couple of days hopefully, this tutorial is going to be here.
I can't wait to see if it was useful to someone, if you learned something new ;)

As usual, thank you for watching me, faving me, commenting and giving feedback. It makes me not just happy, but want to keep on making what i love the most :) *BIIIG HUG!!*


-------------------------------------------

A couple of hours later ....

I've just uploaded the tutorial =) i couldn't wait *lol*.

Hi there !!

It's a beautiful sunny day, even if it's autumn in Southamerica (i like its colors but not the cold =P) and i'm having breakfast while looking for amazing pieces around.

As usual, i want to thank all the people who faved me, or added me to their watch list. It's nice to have feedback, so far it's been positive and if a negative answer shows up regarding a piece i've made, it's welcome too :) everything contributes *ying yang girl*

If curiosity killed the cat ... don't ask about me then =P, even when i like to check new pieces to add to my favs or comment or congratulate someone for a great job! i always check the gallery, and the favs it has got.
And let me tell you people, i'm so impressed about the different talents i've seen so far ... my fav gallery grows all the time =), so many of you are an inspiration!!

See you around guys!!

PS: promise to make a tutorial about miniatures soon :)

Hi everybody!
It's been so long since i wrote an entry in my journal =P sryyy!

Well, 5 days ago i got sick, meaning i can't go to work = staying home = doing a lot with my time! This is the part i like; when i can sit down and the ideas, the inspiration comes to me, no need to force it like when you're rushing all day long, and later you want to actually do something creative but it gets late and you end up preparing your clothes for the following day. It's pure ying-yang, still, some days at home dedicated to do what i love the most, are welcome :)

Lately, i've started receiving so many comments and questions about my work, before i continue writing, i want to say to all of you THANK YOU!, and please continue checking, or if you have questions about the works i make; they're welcome.


See you around guys!

Hi everybody!
It's been a busy day uploading/submiting all my work here.
It's great to be among such a group of talented people, really.

My name's Angelina and i'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm 30 years old at the moment, soon 31.
I'm about to graduate as a Set Designer soon, so that's why you'll notice so many costumes and characters related to theater/ballet/opera plays.
Art has been in my life since i was able to crawl and grab a crayon LOL, I'm self taught and the knowledge i got from university helped me improve in many areas.
I love fantasy art; horror/fantasy movies, Tim Burton's creations (specially The nightmare before christmas and Alice in wonderland). My other passion is reading; i consider it a source of ideas, inspiration.

I'm a very sociable person and like making new friends when it's possible =). I speak 4 languages in case someone wants to communicate in another language: spanish (my mother language), italian and at the moment i'm learning swedish.

Be welcome to my gallery -also my blog- enjoy, comment and let me know what you think from my work.

See you soon :)
