Mother and Child Giraffes Products and Art

Most of my art up until now has been paintings and outline drawings. But I recently read a book that inspired me to try something new.



It's how I did the giraffe picture shown on the tile below:


Can you tell? Does it look like a painting? Actually it is a drawing. First I drew the outline of the bodies. Then I used Sharpie Markerssharpie markers to color in the base color. Then I used Prange Colored Pencilscolored pencils to add depth and shading. Voila.

Here are the giraffe's printed on a notebook:


Let me know what you think. Have you done any art in one medium that looks like it's been done in a different medium?

Halloween Wizard Cat and Pumpkin Ghost Stickers, Aprons, and Bags

I love Halloween. It's a colorful time of the year and a fun time to let your imagination soar. There are golds and reds in the trees, and people are dreaming of what they want to be.

An important message for Halloween is to be what you want to be, as written on these stickers.

Some are getting ready to have parties and bake all kinds of goodies in their Halloween aprons.


But most are kids that are getting ready to go Trick or Treat with their Halloween bags.


Whatever you're doing for Halloween, or any time in between, may you have a wonderful time, and continue being what you want to be.

Love and blessings.

Art on Products - Educational Dart Boards

Did you ever want to play darts with some added challenge? How about playing darts where you can spell out a word? If you get really good, you can spell out a sentence. No more having to aim at one particular spot in the center. The challenge is to aim for a particular spot in a particular order. What will be your spelling pleasure?


The blank spaces can be used for spaces between words. Points can be earned for spelling a word correctly, or however you want to play.

If spelling is not your game, then perhaps math is.


You can begin with simple equations and work your way up to more complex equations. Again, you can earn points for making a correct equation.

If spelling and math are not your forte, then perhaps eating healthier is. This fruit and vegetable dart board is designed for fun, and awareness to include more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Enjoy.


If you like the idea of educational dart boards, please leave a comment, and or share this link with others.

Design your own personalized dartboard at zazzle.com.

May you have a blessed day.

Art on Products - Pink Flowers Sugar Skull

Sugar skulls are a way to make better of a possible sad situation. They are made to help lift one's spirit up when someone has physically departed. They have also been transformed as another way of thinking about skulls and Halloween. The designs below were made with thoughts of better things in mind.



This one features a pink sugar skull decorated with purple flowers. It is printed on tshirts, and can also be found on various other products my CherylsArt store at Zazzle.com.




This design looks pretty on a blue background too.

The pale yellow reminds me of the butter cream color I selected for the eyes:

I've read that Mexico is one of the countries that celebrate the Day of the Dead, however, I've heard that there are other countries as well. In Mexico, I think it is November 1st when they celebrate it. It is a time to celebrate and invite a specific departed spirit to the celebration. Skull candy is made from sugar, and decorated with icing and candies. Some decorations aren't edible and some are.



I enjoyed making my first Sugar Skull design and plan to make more.


Below are Sugar Skull designs by CherylsArt that you can purchase at Amazon:

Art on Products - Cat Postage Stamps

If you love cats, you're apt to find some purr-fect postage stamps here for cat lovers. I love cats, and got my first one when I was two. I also love art, and here I have combined my two loves together.



Muffin is a black and white tuxedo cat. She reminds me of a queen.







Susie and Sugar, in abstract, loved giving each other kisses:




They also liked hanging out on the mini trampoline:




Susie was the inspiration for the kitten in the Christmas stocking. We adopted her the day after Christmas:




The smiling cats in a mandala kaleidoscope style, remind me of a fun coloring book page:




Wishing you a cat purr-fect day.

Art on Products - Abstract and Trendy Blue Green Purple Yellow Messenger Bag

This was one of my most fun paintings. I got to re-use the bag that the apples came in, and I played with placing various colors of metallic paint in the painting dish. First I started with a yellow background. I wanted something light and bright to show through.



Once I saw the completed design, I knew it would look grand on a messenger bag. The blue, green, and purple on the yellow background, makes it a versatile choice.







The solid color in the front, and the trim binding, can be customized online. To choose a different color for these, click on the product link, then on Customize It, and then click on Choose Your Style and Colors.

Art on Products - Kaleidoscope Cats Mandala

I love cats and making cat designs. I was intrigued by some mandala type coloring books and liked the ones that seemed more fun. Voila, the idea was born. A cat mandala.


Once I completed it, I also thought that it looked very much like a kaleidoscope design.


I decided to make some products just for cats; a Cat Treats Candy Jar:


And a pet dish:


I also wanted to make something for cat facility owners and volunteers, to help with scheduling cat adoption events. Each can be customized right online, by you.

Here it is on a planner for organizing:

Art on Products - Colorful Garden Coordinating Placemat Setting

The colorful abstract garden was fun to create. It started with lines drawn in a spiraling pattern, then adding shapes within the spaces. Once I filled in the spaces, a decided upon a garden. So I separated the area in to three different sections. The top would be the sun and sky, the middle would be the flowers, the lower part would be ground and grasses. I also added a stream.

Some spaces, I decided, had too many things in them, so when I started painting, I just painted over the extra lines, and painted flowers and such on top. What was created was colorful, abstract, and fun.


Here is the colorful abstract garden printed on a placemat:

I picked some of the flower designs and painted a larger version of them in a pattern, on the same color background.

Here are purple brassica flowers printed on a teapot:

Here are purple aster flowers printed on a mug:

Here are yellow daisy flowers printed on a coaster:

Here are yellow jasmine flowers printed on a plate:

Here is a different type of purple aster printed on a pitcher:

As you can see, there are a lot of options for mixing. Pick one design for everything, or mix it up with two or more of the designs.

To see all the different abstract flower garden products, visit my CherylsArt store at Zazzle.com.

Let me know what you think; I appreciate it.
