New painting and other new stuff! [May. 7th, 2006|06:33 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Amber & Chris came over this weekend and got even more yard stuff cleared out - yay! We have also picked out the pavers we want to do the patio with - beautiful 16" square terra cotta ones - it's going to be so pretty back there!

Today we went to the pet store and bought a brush for Azrael. He has been shedding a lot, so I thought we'd get him a nice brush - Matt brushed him and got a LOT of loose hair off of him. And Azrael really enjoyed it too, hehe. =)

Then I finished a new painting! I love it - the colours are beautiful - click below to check it out:

"Wings of the Night"



In other news, I have even more new items available through the Hot Topic stores. Go check your local Hot Topic to see a lot of new stuff! Also, some of the new stuff is up on the website - just go to www.hottopic.com and click on the square picture of the fairy on the right hand side of the screen to see all their new fairy merchandise, a lot of which features my artwork! Or jump directly to their fairy section here:

I also have quite a bit more merchandise that will be available very soon (at Hot Topic and more stores, including my website!). Speaking of my website, I will be updating it within the next week or two with dozens of new prints, merchandise, and lots of fan photos, about 40 new fans' tattoos based on my artwork, all sorts of cool stuff!

In still other news, for you ETSY members out there - I have given into your requests and have opened up an ETSY shop! I've just stuck in a handful of prints & canvas prints to see how it goes. ETSY is a new online shop format that is kind of like an eBay store but just for home-made arts & crafts. You can see my ETSY shop here:

All righty - off I go - lots of work to catch up on, as usual =P

She's lovely, and I love the colors on this one, they go together so well. Congrats on getting more stuff in Hot Topic. It's always nice to go into the mall here, into the Hot Topic, and say "Hey! There's Jasmine's art!".

She's beautiful, I absolutely love the colors you used for the painting!

Pavers? So will it look tiled and will you put mortar in between? Just curious because I'd really really like to pave off 12x10' area in our front yard so my wheels don't track mud and I can do planter box gardening. =)

Ohh I love Etsy - welcome!

Thank you Erika!

We are going to level the ground and then put several inches of finishing sand, and landscaping fabric down, and then the pavers. Our yard is already pretty flat and 95% sand already, so it shouldn't be too difficult. I will post "before and after" photos for sure! The Home Depot people are supposed to deliver it all on Friday, and then my sister & her husband will be over on Saturday to help us with everything. We're covering about a 350 sq ft area, and are abutting it up to our existing concrete patio with the gazebo on it, so it will be a really nice outdoor living area!

She is so beautiful and I love all her pretty colors. The past two days I went to Hot Topic and have not seen any of your new items except for the cigarette/id case, that I bought. *Giggles*
*Hugs*

Thank you Jessica! Hehe - I'm using my id case (the one I got as a sample) for my wallet, credit card, etc. I love the freebies I get for stuff like that!

Ooooooooooh Jasmine! She is going to be so popular! I LOVE this one! I think this one would work great with your licensing deals, man, well, at least I hope! Lol! I wouldn't mind having her on a t-shirt or stickers or things of that sort. ;)

Gaaah can't I already get out of college and get a real paying job JUST so I could buy these sort of things?!?LOL! =^_^=

I saw you over on Etsy! I was looking at Renee's stuff & ran across yours I didn't realize you were over there!

Aw! Our cats LOVE brushing too!! Clara would let you brush her ALL DAY if you wanted. She LOVES it. Vincent likes it for a while then tries to eat the brush & then "bunny-kicks" until you stop. ;p

I just found your journal via your webpage -- I've had one of your fairy stickers (green ribbon fairy) on my car for several months now and I've always wondered who the artist was and I found your name on a sticker site and Googled you.

I just want to tell you how incredible your artwork is. I love it, and I plan on ordering a book and eventually a statue -- keep up the tremendous work.

Also, would you mind if I friended you here on Livejournal?

Oh! Thank you so much! >^__^<

Pleased to meet you! Certainly - feel free to "friend" me -I'm not that exciting of a person, lol, but that's the easiest way to keep up with my artwork at least =)
