Brand New Wedding Ensemble, “Vintage Roses ‘n Birds”

This Reception Invitation Card is designed to coordinate with all of the Vintage Rose ‘n Birds Wedding Ensemble. It is a hybrid of original watercolor artwork by Audrey Jeanne Roberts and vintage elements. A cluster of antique roses in pink, yellow and red is mixed with other classic blooms and two love birds. The elegant scroll work is contemporary artwork inspired by antiques. A soft damask pattern in a light mossy green finishes off the art.  There are several choices of invitations to select from.  You can find them by clicking on any of the pictures and going to my store.  Once there go to Everything Wedding/Green or VIA THIS LINK

This Reception Table Seating Chart for assigned seating is designed to coordinate with all of the Vintage Rose ‘n Birds Wedding Ensemble. Easy to customize, you simply type your guest’s names in the field provided. You can delete tables, add names and move things around easily. I will design a table seating chart to match any wedding invitation ensemble in my store, all you have to do is ask!

Perfect to use as seals for your envelopes, these stickers are easy to customize with your names and dates.  Not getting married?  These can become Address stickers by simply changing the text.  It’s very easy to do on Zazzle.

There is a huge selection of additional products that coordinate to fill all of your wedding day needs.  Every invitation can be changed to any occasion.  25th or 50th Wedding Anniversary?  Change the text to reflect your celebration.

The Blog Contest for August is closing tomorrow.  All you have to do to earn entries in the drawing is post a comment on any and or all posts in the month of August.  Each comment is an entry.  The prize is your choice of any of my $4.95 kits at my Etsy store!

Deja’ Brew Coffee Art in a Calendar for 2011

There are twelve individual pieces of art that come together in this calendar, all with beautiful art and many with some humorous sayings having to do with the consumption of coffee!

Here’s a coffee mug with one of the calendar images on it.

I created this artwork with a calendar in mind, but then took two years to put it on one, LOL!  It’s been used in a fabric collection and a kitchen soft goods collection as well as quite a few other product lines.  In addition to the calendar each print will be available as a poster to frame or to put on canvas — your choice.

Every calendar page will eventually be available as a print.

Today’s Best Awards at Zazzle

For those that aren’t familiar with the Zazzle marketplace, there are literally billions of products available from millions of artists, photographers and designers.  Each day, Zazzle selects 30-40 of those products to reflect what they felt were the best and/or most interesting new items created that day.

I have been blessed to be selected many times in the four months I’ve been active at Zazzle, but this last week I was really pleased to have my products selected 3 days in a row.  It’s quite an honor and a reward for your hard work.  Thank you, Zazzle!

The contemporary flower design was a lot of fun to create.  So many of these contemporary designs are just drawn and colored in on Photoshop.  I love to bring  watercolor art into contemporary design and give it a flair that flat graphics will never achieve.

This collection was created out of the art work I designed for my “Paradise” fabric collection with Studio E Fabrics.  There are three different collections within this collection which makes it perfect for the bride that hates “matchy-matchy!”

And finally, a contemporary baby girl baby shower or birth announcement.  One of the things I love to do with my Zazzle store, is play with creating more contemporary work than might be my usual.  This “Circles ‘n Booties” ensemble is a great example of mixing classic Audrey Jeanne art with a contemporary twist.

I am just 1400 visits away from 700,000 hits!  Thanks one and all for taking time out of your day to let me share my art and my heart 🙂

Wow! I’ll Go Over 700,000 Hits this Month!

I’ve been blogging a while now.  Sometimes I’m more faithful than others, depending on my work load – which shifts rapidly day by day.  My previous blog had over 300,000 hits before I was forced to change to a new one.  This new blog will go over 400,000 hits some time in the next 1-2 weeks.  It simply amazes me.  THANK YOU to those of you faithful readers that have been with me since the beginning or come alongside of me during the journey.  It’s a joy and a blessing to share with you.  One I never take for granted.

So, what am I up to?  I’m finishing up a kitchen goods collection today, that will be out in January with a fabulous manufacturer.  I will show you the designs when I am allowed to.  I love their quality and look forward to seeing the final products when they are done.  I hope that this will be the first of many collections with their company.

I am also working on a room sized rug, and paper party goods how’s that for variety?!  That’s one thing I love about what I do.  It’s hard to get bored when things can change so quickly.

I WAS hoping to start painting a new collection today that I had sketched out during my recent trip to Las Vegas for the Licensing Show.  While the show was rather disappointing as a show for an artist to peruse, the extra day and a half that I had to fill with doing something was actually fabulous.  It forced me to sit down and plan, something that we artists aren’t always that great at.  I’ve already finished and licensed one of the collections I designed while there and am ready for the second.  I guess being bored is a good thing sometimes?!

These sunflowers are from my newest collection at Zazzle “Sunflowers ‘n Swirls” and are perfect for  late summer and into fall uses.  It’s August already!  Fall will be here before we know it.  So make the rest of your summer really special.

I’m adding a second contest to my normal blog contest.  For anyone that doesn’t know, if you leave a comment on any or all of my posts during the month that serves as an entry into the contest which is drawn randomly at the end of the month.   If you enjoy my blog and refer it to 5 people, you will be entered into a drawing for a second prize.  That prize is a $4.95 item of your choice from my Etsy store, or a discount equal to that if there’s something more expensive that you covet.  Just send me a message saying that you have referred me to 5 people and each time you do 5 people it will count as an entry.  Thanks so much for being a part of helping me to grow!

We Have a Winner!

Kathy (KSinMT) was the random winner of my blog contest this morning.  She will get her choice of any of my $4.95 kits at Etsy.  LINK TO MY ETSY STORE

Thanks to all who entered the contest.  This month we’ll be having it again.  I’m going to add a little twist.  If you invite 5 friends to come read my blog and email me about it.  You’ll be in a separate drawing for a second prize.  By the way, there is no limit on winning.  Kathy could win again this month.  I do it that way to encourage the comments.  I really enjoy hearing from people and getting your feedback!

Two ways to win, and two prizes this month.  I have to say that my first complete month with an Etsy store was simply amazing.  I had so many more sales than I ever envisioned.  My thanks to my new customers, your notes and feedback were very much appreciated.  I look forward to another very busy month in my art business and I’ll try to keep you aware of all that I can!  I’m working on formatting a line of products today that I believe will be out in January.  I’ll let you know what they are and with whom, as soon as I am allowed.  Have a great August and stay cool 🙂
