I love creating things. Changing the elements of one design into something new. I started painting with water colors when I was 43. I also went through a phase of working with Pastels, and colored pencils. But Watercolor painting with Watercolor pencils still is what I love working with. As an artist, I feel my art, my creative spirit is always evolving and changing. The reason I call my art Visions Alchemy is because I love to take greeting cards, old calendars, my own watercolor painting designs and recycle them and change them into something new. I seem to be moving more and more into 3D art. I admire what Paper engineers can do creating 3D designs by using a ruler, pens and scissors. I am creating more and more 3D art and seem to love making 3D cards that can be changed into a wall hanging. Recently, a friend gave me this really cute birthday card designed by English artist, David Parsons. His line of cards is called Kat-Stars. I loved the card so much that I wanted to turn the design into a wall hanging for my music studio. I guess you could also call my art – “reclycled art”. And if you saw my art studio, you would see many things that I have saved because I never know when I will need them.Trixie Le Mioux upclose1

The original birthday card

I started the design by taking a photograph of the card and then resizing the design to fit an 8 x 10 cat food tray I decoupaged and turned it into a shadow box. The design was then redesigned to create the layers I was to use to make the new design. It is time consuming because I use Mod Podge on most of the layers of the sheets I use to make it more sturdy. I wasn’t really sure how I was going to finish the design, but I wanted to create a feeling of feminine energy and playfulness. I will show more of my designs in my next few posts. When I interviewed Bruce Hilvitz of Flatwurks, It was an artistic kick in the rear, it is time to re-focus on my art. And so it is!

Botticelli Woman Art is getting ready to launch store

Botticelli Woman ArtI used a Scrapbook page for this design. I like the feminine color of Pink.

Yes, I am taking the plunge and putting up my newest art work for sale. I started focusing my art on creating 3D images from printing images from

my computer, watercolor art and incorparating fabric pieces too. It will manifest in the forms of greeting hards, wall hangings, book marks etc. I will also be creating more hand painting designs. I am having a great creative burst and taking advantage of this.

I will probably set the price for these 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 for $5 to $10, I will be opening an Etsy shop soon. and there is a store in Benicia where I have been selling my greeting cards. What price would you comfortably pay for this work?

I like the feminine look to this one.

This is actually mounted on a removeable square. I just forgot to remove the thum tack first:)
