unloved artwork! LOL

I submitted these for publication sometime back but it doesn't look like anything's going to come of it so I've blogged them because I REALLY liked them.


As you've probably guessed, the background paper is from Crafty Individuals overlaid with Iron Orchid paintables. I coloured the back of these with gold Krylon


Stamps are from Crafty Individuals, Third Coast and Lazar Studiowerx.

I love these Carol. You never know they may still get published yet!

Suse said...

I really like them too Carol - beautiful - as are the background settings where you've photographed them. The third is my favourite hanging, love the butterflies - love the blossom setting on the 2nd and how you've tied in the background and artwork colours on each one - what flair!

alcoholinky said...

.. and a large element of luck LOL!

Karin said...

LOL but mainly flair I think!!

What a gorgeous collection, how on earth could they be unloved? Maybe they're waiting to be published at just the right moment.

Sue said...

Nice pieces, shame they didn't get published :(

joanne wardle said...

they are fabulous carol, and although it's beutiful where you have photographed them I did have the urge to brush the leaves out of the way on the last one so I could have a closer look. lol :)
The colours of these are much gentler than I normally associate with you but they are gorgeous.

Most beautiful pieces, Carol. I loved the third one in particular, very poetic.

Carrie said...

Wow - Carol - they are all amazing, I love the soft colours, and paintables?? I have no clue what they are but they finish the pieces off beautifully. Love the sticks with embossing powder.all gorgeous.

Paula said...

stunning work Carol - well, whoever you sent them too must be blind...but fingers crossed they might still print them!
Ive never been able to use the last stamp youve used but youve inspired me to give it another go...just hope I can do it as much justice as you have!

Louise (KardKrazy) said...

Wow, they are all gorgeous!

Jo Capper-Sandon said...

If its an American publication and less than 2 years ago, theres every chance they will be published.

Beautiful soft colours Carol.

I think my fave is the last one as the layout works really well, just wish I had some secateurs on me lol

Sue B said...

I think these are wonderful!

Cath Wilson said...

Ooh, these are fab, Carol. Love the colours you chose and the images look great. Bet you end up having to take them down because they're published.......

Pia said...

Wow, they are all gorgeous!

deb said...

Three stunning pieces Carol, I think the last one is my fave, just love everything about it.

Fingers crossed the powers that be see sense and publish these stunners.

Lottie said...

I think that these are absolutely beautiful. I have never submitted any work to anywhere - and probably never will.

I do read that sometimes things are published a couple of years after submission!

Janny said...

Gorgeous, I love the one in the middle;o)

Kim Piggott said...

Wow!
These are just wonderful!
Such gorgeous images and your colour is just beautiful!
They may be saving them!

They're breath-taking Carol, all of them. I am so envious of your beautifully blended backgrounds, such stunning colours. They are all works of art,
Love Sarita xx
PS: Will be ordering a few (oh OK lots lol) of Stampinback stamps this weekend so thank you for letting me know about them.

Seona said...

These aren't unloved by those of us who visit here!! All beautiful Carol - I'm hard pushed to pick a favourite from the second and third one! Can take them ages to publish so you never know.

audrey h. said...

Absolutely stunning...all of them. I am sure they will get pub'd. because they totally deserve it.

audrey h. said...
