Little Witch

Here is another experiment using the same patterned paper. I just drew straight on to the patterned paper with coloured pencil then out lined it in ink. It was nice to make a change from acrylic paint as I really do favour that most of the time I just love how vibrant the acrylic paints are but I would like to experiment with alot more materials.

she is adorable, lovely artwork :D - email me on valzdero@live.com.au and I will give you the details of the diamond glaze I use for the pendants (its very similar to what you are already doing with the little glass tiles)

Hi Nicola!! I hope you are well! I love your little witch and really love Isabella too. Your work is so wonderful. I agree with the storage problem: I am finding the same challanges - what do I do with all this stuff? But for you, have you considered submitting some of your work to Somerset Studio? Kristin :)

She is adorable Nicola! It's always fun to mix up your mediums every now and then. Love the patterned paper.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment about my submission! I really appreciate it. To answer your question: Somerset Studio The Art of Paper and Mixed Media is located in California. I believe they do ship their magazine internationally. Below is the link to subscribing, if you don't have it in your local bookstore in Australia.


It's a fabulous magazine and they have so many sister magazines that are just as fun. Hope you find it locally.

Lisa :)

Hi Nicola, so lovely to hear from you. I am so pleased you have used this method and loved it. I love it too.
Do love how you have such an ariel view in your last painting, I think my head would probably explode even just starting to work that one out.
Total admiration for you!
