Are your kids constantly singing “Let it Go”? Is Olaf the new name of every stuffed animal in the house? Have you been asked lately if you want to build a snowman? If you know what I’m talking about then your kids are probably just as obsessed with Frozen as my step-daughter! Well Elaborate Eyes is here to help! Plan a Frozen themed party for those sing-songy kids and I’ll turn them into ice princesses and snow monsters! They’ll be the envy of ever kid on the playground when they show their friends pictures of themselves painted “just like Elsa!”. Check out my new Frozen face paintings, and call or email me to book your theme party!
Happy Spring! I’m coming up on my 4 year face painting anniversary, and while I have grown alot professionally and artistically over the years, I think it’s finally time to upgrade my designs and setup. Over the next month or two I will be on a mission to get new designs in my book in time for the summer. My current list of new things to paint is up to 63, but lord knows that number keeps going up! So here is just the first set of updated and brand new designs I’ll be offering up to my clients… enjoy!
It might still be mostly white in Cleveland, but in 10 short days everyone will be thinking GREEN!
Everyone is Irish on Saint Patricks Day, so why not get yourself painted by yours truly and show off that Irish pride! I am excited to announce that I will be painting faces at Mavis Winkles in Independence again this year! Come out for a full day of festivities, Irish food, and face painting! Plus they will be offering shuttle service downtown starting at 11 am if you want to go see the parade, but don’t want to deal with the crazy traffic and hefty parking fees!
Mavis Winkles is located at 5005 Rockside Rd, Cleveland, OH 44131
Here are some of the new designs I’ve been working on for this year…
Come see me on Monday, March 17th at Mavis Winkles and get festive!
I am excited to announce that I will be painting today and tomorrow at the Womens FedCup Tennis Championship between Team USA and Team Italy! The event is being held at the Cleveland Public Auditorium downtown Cleveland this weekend. I will be painting in the lobby from 11-12 on Saturday and 12-1pm on Sunday. Come see some of the worlds top athletes as they compete, and get painted with some fun Tennis themed designs to show your support!
Happy New Year! It is officially a new year in the Chinese calendar, and this year we are celebrating the year of the Horse. Here is a quick celebratory design to ring in the new year. Enjoy!
Recently my niece came over for a sleep over, and the very first thing she said to me was “Aunt Amanda, can you paint my face?”. So the next day before heading out to the mall I let the girls pick whatever they wanted out of my extremely large collection of inspiration images… and of course my niece just wanted to be a cat. A black cat to be specific, because she’s into “natural fur colors” now. I had to haggle with her a bit, but finally talked her into letting me add some gold so she could be a Calico kitty, and I could still try out a new design. We were both quite happy with the results!
And my step-daughter just wanted something pretty… which I always love to paint!
And my last new design for today… Unfortunately I’m usually not able to take photos of my paintings at parties, but every once in a while I try to snap a few, especially when I try something new on the fly. This little darling was ADORABLE and made a super cute Dalmatian puppy… but was too squirmy to get a good picture! But it’s still cute, and makes me want to try this design again.
With the winter months ahead being my slow season, hopefully I’ll have time to play with more new designs soon! Check back to see my latest works!
Ok, I know it’s almost Thanksgiving, and we’re all happily focusing on the next big holiday now, but I realized I never posted my last Sugar Skull of the year! This one turned out especially good, so I couldn’t let it pass by without a post. So here you go… I promise this is my last “halloweeny” pic for the year.
Hello Halloween Lovers!!!
I know technically we still have a few days before the 31st, but for alot of the adult world, the weekend before Halloween is when the ghouls and goblins come out to play. Lucky for them I’m always happy to paint them up as creepy and cool as they want to be! Check out this weekends creations…
