Happiness is Close!

Hi dear Readers

Today I have BIG news! I was invited to participate as a digital scrapbooking designer at The Studio = Digital Scrapbooking Studio! Today is the great debut. It was 3 weeks of hard work, but it was worth because this store is wonderful and opens many doors for a new circle of friendship with designers and scrappers. For the inauguration I made a kit inspired by the colors of autumn. All items in this kit are digital and mimic real items. Many other elements of the kit are painted or drawn by hand by me. And also have the backgrounds that are digital papers that I created by imitating a real painting. The art doll is my pencil drawing converted into digital art.

"Happiness is very close: just see, enjoy and feel" is one of the inspiring quotes included in my brand-new collection.
See bold colors, enjoy the season and feel nature at its best!

Digital Paintings - more portraits - and a Freebie

Hi,
Yeah, you know, I love digital paintings!

In my walks on the web I found workshops that enrich me a lot in knowledge and technique. I am very grateful to Cilena Curtis at Scrapneers. I learned the first steps, fundamental to my art. Living in Brazil is no longer so far from the world of scrapbooking. The internet is approaching, and I was able to participate virtually in other workshops, such as the Digital Art Academy, where I participated for many years. I'm an admirer of Karen Bonaker and Skip Allen. It was with them that I learned the basics of Painting at Painter.
My first self portrait doing Cilena's Workshop:



An old photo of my son:

And now, with his wife, at Atacama:

Letícia, daughter of my goddaughter


Little Isabela - my friends granddaughter:


Baby Niki - our great-nephew


Oliver and Stephan, also our great-nephews:

And here is a Layout with little Helena:

Last Christmas, I did this gift for my dear Aunt (sister of my mother). She is such a lovely person!

Digitally painted (Dec. 2017):


The WWW is full of people doing digital painting workshops or tutorials. 
Here some links:
Scrapaneers (for Scrapbooking)
The Artists' Quarter (Tim Shelbourne)

And today - and only for one week (Sept. 10-17) I have a fun freebie for you!

Hi dear Readers!!

I cannot believe that we have September!!

Since 2006 I am in the scrapbooking industry. Have seen many design shops come and go. Also, many designers of my time have retired. But I'm really sad since Dawn Inskip suddenly died. R.I.P. She was such a creative and wonderful artist! Look what I did with her kits:
