It's almost over, September! and my class starts soon!!


First off--I apologize for not being as active here as I want to be, I'm having issues for quite a while now with blogger and am thinking of switching to something a little easier to update and maintain.
I do have an Instagram account that I post to every week and I am on facebook quite a bit as well.
So if you are on any of those, you can follow me and see more behind the scenes and projects Im currently working on. Enough of that;)
Well another season just started everywhere, except here:) it's officially Fall or Autumn if you prefer but here in Miami it is still 95 degrees with 100% humidity all of the time. I still like to pretend there's a season here so I start by switching the pillows on the sofa to more natural colors instead of my super bright summer palette and I lower the AC at night to 65 and drink hot tea, that's Fall, Y'all!
Luckily, I am traveling until the end of the month on business so I will be outta this sticky heat for a little bit!! But I will be back in time to start my doll class!!

"It's My Party" doll class will begin OCTOBER 1st at AforArtistic once again, so I hope you can join me! Just click the blue link to go sig up for the class!

I added 3 new Little Monsters on my Etsy shop this week. I have Gus the Ghost, 
Baby Bat, and Little Pumpkin Head. They are small and adorable and will arrive in the cutest little coffin or crate and they make a great gift for yourself or anyone who loves spooky creepy cute stuff!! 





I hope you like them!!
Have a great week!

New Project!

Hi everyone, a big WELCOME and THANK YOU to all of my new students for joining me for the next 3 weeks in our Flapper class! Well, summer is almost here and I have started work on a small new project. This one will be geared towards the little ones but I hope adults will love it too! I am working on some scenes or vignettes for the new project and will be sharing some of the process photos as I go along.
I love paper mache and especially mushrooms so this was a fun way to get to work on both at once.
These are just very basic hand made foil, wire and paper tape mushrooms then painted in acrylic colors. I am making the grass from decorative materials I found and some of the flowers will be paper crepe. So here is the start of it all.
















































Tons to go before I can get it the way I want it but its a start. Well, I hope you all have a great weekend, have some fun and create something that will make you or someone else smile!!

Hugs,
Rosanna

The Original Flapper Class Begins Tomorrow May26!

Hi everyone! My latest doll class, The Original Flapper, begins tomorrow at Aforartistic.com
There is still time to join in and learn how to make your very own art doll. I provide you with everything you will need to recreate The Flapper including a template, hundreds of step by step photos and clear instructions on a printable PDF. You can also ask me any questions for the duration of the class as well as send me progress photos for me to review and give advice on.
With what you will learn in my classes you can then create one of a kind personalized gifts for friends and family!! Think of all the red hat society ladies or seniors in your life that would get such a treat out of receiving one of these or getting a gift certificate for the class makes a great gift too!
Hope to see you there!
Hugs,
Rosanna

Happy Mother's Day!!

I'm lucky enough to have my mom, grandma, sister and great friends near me so I like to make our gatherings a bit more special on Mother's Day. I decorated everything in my fave colors and prepared a brunch just for us ladies. We had all of our favorites from our old country and some new faves too.
I had a lot of fun making all of the decorations and choosing just the right little goodies for each of them. I hope all of you moms had a great day!
Hugs,
Rosanna
