"Sweet" News

A new company will soon open that will cater to the wants and needs of the mixed-media artist. "RockCandy", a partnership between Roxi Phillips and Candice Windham, will launch their new venture in August. They will offer a wonderful variety of mixed media items that will spark your imagination and creativity. The website addy will be announced in the very near future so check back often for a link to their store. In the meantime, I'd like to share something I've made featuring a few of their products.

First of all, I apologize for the photo. I tried many times to get a better shot than this but my photography skills must be lacking. Or maybe I need a new that's an idea..

The shadowbox was painted in shades of green acrylic paint and crackle finished. Background papers (RockCandy) were aged using various inks. "Letters Mingle Souls", "Devoted Friends", "Friendship", "Secrets", and the "Dearest Friend" letter were all computer-generated. The small girls are from a stamp by Oxford Impressions and the flower stamp beside each girl is by Artistic Outpost. The tiny postcards are offered by RockCandy on one of their collage sheets. This particular sheet features large and small versions of these images. The tiny bundles (created using papers and topped with the tiny postcards) are tied with ribbon also being carried by RockCandy. Completing the shadowbox are RockCandy's pen nibs, tiny glass bottles and a letterpress D. This may give you an idea of the cool products that will soon be available.

Be watching for RockCandy's grand opening. These are 'cream of the crop' women that are both talented and reliable. You'll find them, as well as their products, a delight to work with. Good luck girls!
