Sorry everyone I have been slacking! Very busy busy bee with all sorts of shows coming up! Follow me here if you would like to know where I will be next to say hello! I know I would love to see you!

Here she is!  My little mermaid. Mermaid8 X 10 prints are available here  on Etsy. And the Original is still available for $700. Serious inquiries only please.
She was created on 14 X 17″ recycled Bristol using graphite. .05 and ,0 7 for all those who ask.

For those who want her as a tattoo, I am honored!  And I would love to see her on skin. I humbly request you purchase the right to tattoo her before you get it inked. Any good tattoo artist will request the same. Simply buy the print or make a $25 donation.  Also for extra points if you post your new April Alayne ink to my wall I will simply adore you.

Hanging hoop Art

 

Here is a new little project I have been working on.

This is just for fun to bulk up some items for up and coming craft shows this summer! I absolutely love the look of vintage textbook style illustrations and wanted to go further then just a framed picture.

I wanted to create something that would look great collage style. It is one of my favorite looks! Like this!

This look is especially great if you are unable to paint your apartment walls. And is fantastic for keeping you inspired.

Each image is printed high quality on thick textured re purposed duck canvas and stretched in various sized  wood embroidery hoops.  Some I have incorporated some fabric also to make them a little different!

 

I am in debate on making these available in my etsy.  What are your thoughts?

I will see how they do at my 1st Craft show in VA on April 15th  Please come by!

I love making these little guys! And I can create custom ones if interested. They could be sweet for wedding decor I feel in addition to home decor!

But all the same this is what I have been up to! I hope everyone is enjoying April so far. It is a pretty swell month I must say.

 

 

 

 

3D Cameos

So this is the new project I have been working on.

Interlocking my antler art in with my love of classically chic cameos.

Using up cycled frames and hand cut and sanded wood I attach a antler that had been naturally shed to give this classic look a abstract twist.

 

They will be available on AlwaysApril.etsy.com soon if they are not already.
Also they will be at  Ballston Arts and Craft fair October 8th and the Dc Craft Mafias Monster mash October 29th!

 

Cant wait.
