Mixed Media Art by Alicia Caudle
Here are a few things to look at -- check back often as I frequently update this page. All of these items were created by me (Alicia Caudle), except the pieces at the bottom of the page that were created by Altered Bits' friends and customers displaying their fabulous use of the collage sheets and/or embellishments and other Altered Bits' goodies. All mixed media and altered art pieces below are OOAK (one of a kind) originals (with the exception of prints as marked). Please note that I am a forgetful little thing and altough a few items may say available, they may very well be sold.

Adoptees: Babies and Kids in Funky Sweaters, Blankets and PJs
||Funny Story about the Adoptees
This is a long story, but the short version is that I recently had a dream that I gave birth to 32 babies and some of them morphed into toddlers and 5 year olds and 9 year olds over night. There were kids everywhere!
I panicked and wanted to get rid of them fast so I purchased funky sweaters, blankets and silly PJs for each of them so people would find them cute enough to want to adopt as I hadn't room for 32 babies. My husband was furious with me and said we should keep 26 of the babies and name one for each letter of the alphabet.
I shared the story with a couple of friends the next day and I was told to paint them. Challenged to paint them. But I did -- I painted all 26 kiddos within 3 or 4 days. I believe all but three have sold. And as requested by my husband, they all have a name from meach letter of the alphabet.
Click the image to view all of them: Astrid, Buck, Charlotte, Dorian, Effie, Frida, Gustav, Hiram, Imogene, Jessamyn, Khalil, Llewellyn, Mabel, Napolean, Obidiah, Primus, Qaj, Rowen, Sabine, Temerance, Una, Valis, Wyatt, Xaviar, Ysadora, and Zenith. All but two have been adopted (as in bought).
