Hello All!  I want to share with you some of the things I have been working on recently.  During this time of the year I tend to feel low on energy.  I create art everyday in order to lift my spirits.  A lot of the colors that I have been using within my art have been like color therapy for me.

Today I share with you photographs of some papier mache bottle dolls that are available on my shop (www.darkmoondoll.etsy.com), a pair of upcycled recycled pants I have been working on, and an upcycled recycled hand sewn dress that is halfway finished.

I hope you all find a way to stay mellow and calm during this holiday season and feel free to get creative to take away the stress.

Brightest Blessings, Trina

Hello All.  So if you don't know I host a show every Tuesday on my youtube channel under the name Darkmoon Doll.  I like to share step by step tutorials, I talk about why I think it is so important for people to express themselves when they are feeling really extreme emotions like anger or sadness. And I feel that we should express ourselves in a productive way.  

On today's show I share some of the art that I am currently working on and the importance of getting out toxic feelings and anger or else it can manifest into disease if not healed and treated in a kind and compassionate way.

I hope everyone finds time to get out and be creative.  I love to create in Mother Earth if at all possible weather permitting of course.

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything in this blog here. So for the loyal followers my apologies.  I am balancing a lot of different projects at the time that I never thought I would. I want to catch you all up with some of these projects that have been completed and that I am so pleased with .

The first project I would like to discuss with you all is a deck of oracle cards that I designed for a friend of mine by the name of Yvette Smith.  I created 44 cards with 44 different images to express each card. This was unlike anything I have ever did artistically. I must admit that some cards were more challenging than others.  I am very happy with how they are turned out and so is Yvette.  Here is some photos of the cards.  The are for sale on Yvette Smith's etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/listing/250584571/pre-order-special-eye-of-the-seer 

So this deck is on sale on the link above until October 31st after that I believe the decks will be for sale on ebay.  The name of the deck is Eye Of The Seer.

So I am very excited about this for sure.  Please do check it out .

I will be sharing more posts soon.  Thank you for stopping by and feel free to stop by my etsy shop.

Hello All,
Short story about how I burned some polymer clay beads. I got this clay from Japan that I thought was polymer clay. It felt as soft as Sculpy III . So anyway I have a separate toaster oven to bake my clay beads in so I put them in for the regular amount of time and the same heat and guess what they caught fire. Totally flamed up. I rushed the toaster outside and thankfully nothing too tragic occurred.
I was very disappointed of course because all of the time and effort I put into creating these beads I felt was wasted. So I came back to the beads in the morning and all of them are charred. Because I was able to have a night's rest I was able to come back to them with fresh eyes. I have decided to just paint and seal them because although are not their original design and size I know I can use it for this shadow box I have been working. Here are some photographs of the burnt beads and the mixed media shadow box art I have been working.
Hope everyone is finding time to get out and appreciate mother nature. I saw a squirrel being attacked by a little tiny bird that looks like a parakeet. Never know what natures playground will show you.
Warm Regards, Trina
