A Loving Family

I had the privilege of painting for a family reunion yesterday where the theme was definitely Love.  I painted about a dozen designs all honoring Vivian, the family matriarch who passed away this year.  It was beautiful to see how many adults and children wanted their paintings to pay tribute to their mother and grandmother.  Here are just a few of the designs I painted…

I hope the family enjoyed my paintings as much as I did… the photos will make a touching addition to their family scrapbooks.

Pretty Pretty Princess!

Hello friends!  I have a princess themed birthday party on my schedule soon and so I decided this weekend I would work on my princess crowns.   There are so many different ways to paint a “crown” but sometimes on the spot my mind draws a blank.  So here are 4 new versions for the girls to choose from.  Enjoy!

P.S… next week for sure I’ll be working on new BOY designs!

Nose Art!

Hello again art lovers!  I am so excited to show you what I learned this week!  Not only did I take time to practice, but I got to attend a fantastic workshop and learned a new painting style!  It was  SO fun… I love taking classes to learn new techniques, but this was one of my favorites.  We learned how to cartoon on the face, AND how to make our art ANIMATED!  These fun designs move with your face so when you scrunch, bunch, twist or expand your forehead and mouth the characters look like they’re moving.  I hope I get to paint one of these guys on you soon so you can see how fun they are!  I’d love to hear what you think!

Nose Bunny

This one is only half done because we needed to move on in class to the next cool thing.

Nose Duck

Nose Monkey

This bat is my own original design, based on what we learned in class.  I think he’s pretty awesome.  🙂

Here is a fun cartoon style heart design!  I think this one will be pretty popular.

Cartoon Hearts

And here are some practice eyeballs on my arm… I like the black eye the best… can’t wait to put those on a character soon!

So what do you think?  Do you like the new style?  I do have to admit, painting these guys on yourself is TRICKY!  Hopefully I’ll be painting them on some younger faces soon.  🙂

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I hope you’ve all enjoyed your holidays as much as I have, and are ready to start a productive new year.  Did you make a new years resolution?  I’ve made my resolution to become more motivated this year.  So far I’m doing a fantastic job, and thanks to my new found motivation I have set myself a goal… I am going to practice my face painting every weekend this month.  Finding time to practice isn’t always easy, so now while it’s the slow season I’m going to make the effort to try out new designs and techniques.  This weekend I decided to try out some new mask designs.  These are so fun, and always unique to the event and person wearing it.  I’m excited to add some of these ideas to my bag of tricks for the upcoming Mardi Gras parties!

I hope you enjoy these!  I can’t wait to show you what I’m doing next weekend!

Girls are going WILD!

Painting girl designs means COLOR!  Lots of bright beautiful colors to make even the same design different.  Take a look at these beauties!

And a little something for the adult ladies…

Arm Paintings

Hot times, summer in the city….

Hello again!  So it’s getting HOT right?  And we all know heat makes SWEAT, and sweat makes facepaint a little runny.  BOO!  Well great news… you can still get all colorful and painted at that outdoor party without worries… I can paint YOUR ARMS!  (Or legs, or back, etc).  It’s still fun and makes for cool pictures!  Check out some of these from last weekends birthday party…

 

And have you thought about Glitter Tattoos at your next party??  This is a huge hit with kids and adults, great for graduation parties!!  There’s no paint involved, and these beauties will last 4-5 days!  No worrying about sweating them off or smudges from sticky fingers.  It’s the perfect solution to those backyard BBQ’s!

Got questions?  Want to book a party?  Give me a call at 216-990-5929!

Oh what fun we will have…

Hello summer party people!  Well the busy season has officially begun and my calendar is filling up quickly with all sorts of great face painting goodness!  I’ve got birthday parties, block parties, company parties, graduation parties and some plain ‘ol just for the fun of it parties!  Are you looking for some colorful additions to your summer bash?  Give me a call!

In the meantime, here are a few photos from last weekend… I had some great picks of some old favorites I haven’t painted in a while and even a few new requests.  Most importantly, good times were had by all.  🙂
