New Release Showcase June


Welcome to our big New Release Showcase for June!  I know it's been a while since we brought you a new release showcase, but we are here today with a big showcase of multiple Sprite releases of the seasonal (well, at least, for the temperate zones in the Northern Hemisphere) flowers.

Let's kick off this showcase with the bright and cheerful Trumpet Honeysuckle Sprite!  These lovelies are the favorite of humming birds and butterflies.  Enjoy!

Next up, we have pretty Buttercup Sprite!  Those simple yet bright blossoms are irresistible, and we all want to color her with lots of yellow!  I know I did.  You can actually color her many ways in your choice of color palette, and she'll still look fantastic.  Enjoy the inspirations made by AW's designers!

Next, we have a prickly but pretty, Thistle Sprite!  While we were preparing for this showcase, Debra pointed out to me that the thistle has the honor of being the Scottish national flower.  Isn't that cool?

New Release Double Showcase April

Welcome to April's New Release Showcase!  We're so glad you can stop by.  Today, we are officially introducing Marisol the Mermaid.  Back in November of 2016, I asked for name suggestions from the members of Stamps by AuroraWings FB group for this mermaid, who has appeared as a digi on two occasions up to that point.

Left: 'Starfish Mermaid' not available as a digi as this was a fundraiser SPECIAL EDITION.
Right: 'Whisper of the Sea', still available in JPG (at AuroraWings.com and AW Etsy ) and PNG (at AuroraWings.com and AW Etsy ).
Lots of members came up with so many lovely names (something around 200, I believe), and after careful consideration, Marisol, suggested by AWCB's designer/blog coordinator Donna Mundinger, was chosen.  Marisol is derived from the Spanish words for the sea (mar) and the sun (sol).  For mermaid who loves to spend time on the beach in the sun as much as as in the water, isn't this a perfect name?  And my promise was that the Fairy Godmother who names her would get a full-body digi of her before it's released to the public.

Fast forward to April 2018, and here we are.  We're unveiling a full-body image of Marisol today!  But that's not all.  I've drawn Summer Sprite to complete the Four Seasons Sprites, and this Sprite features a young Marisol.  But first, we'll kick off the showcase with the beautiful Marisol the Mermaid inspirations by our designers.

(As I mentioned earlier on the post, she is the Fairy Godmother of Marisol.)
Marisol the Mermaid comes in at 2100 x 2850 pixels (7 x 9.5 inches or 17.8 x 24.1 cm at 300 dpi) in JPG and PNG versions.  Size down to use her on a card, or use her full size as a main focus on a mixed media art canvas or print-at-home coloring page.  She's a lot of fun to color!

Now, get ready for a precious little Summer Sprite!  The inspiration for the is the baby Marisol, sitting on a beach, partaking in some seasonal food from the land.  Check out the fun creations by the AW designers!


Summer Sprite (with Watermelon) comes in at 1650 x 1800 pixels (5.5 x 6 inches or 14 x 15.2 cm at 300 dpi) in JPG and PNG versions.   She is a great addition to your AW Sprites stash, to complete your Four Seasons' Sprites, and her simpler lines and innocent Sprite charm are perfect for coloring with young children/ grandchildren, especially once it gets to be too hot to do anything outside during the day.  (We're not quite there yet, but dog days of summer will be here before we know it.)

There's another version of Summer Sprite - because I couldn't decide on the watermelon slice or a soft serve ice cream cone!  Here's the other version.


The Summer Sprite with Ice Cream Cone is a BONUS OFFER (BOGO - Buy One Get One FREE - deal) at AuroraWings.com for one week only (April 12 through April 18, 2018).  After that period, the ice cream cone version will be an exclusive, only available at AuroraWings.com digi shop.

Special Announcement!


For those of you who have enjoyed my coloring books, heads up!  Ellen Million Graphics, the publisher of my coloring books, will be having a Kickstarter Launch Party starting today at 1:30 pm EDT US/9:30 am AKDT (That's Alaska Daylight Time, folks!) on Facebook.  The actual Kickstarter fundraiser will follow, starting on April 16 and continuing through May 1.  Those of you who have supported my coloring books in the past through the EMG's Kickstarter events know that this is your rare chance to get PDF copies of my coloring books and many other titles from EMG, a publisher specializing in fantasy coloring books by fantasy artists, printed in relatively small batches as an independent, small business coloring books publisher.  


During the FB Party event, the cover of the Gardens & Goddesses vol. 3 (along with Ellen's coloring book's cover) will be revealed, plus games and prizes with chances to win downloads of pages from the coloring books.  And during the Kickstarter fundraiser, you'll have different tiers of contribution levels available from under $10 USD all the way up to a few hundred dollars, with different rewards for each level of support. And most importantly, especially for those of you who live outside the US, this will be the precious opportunity to get your PDF versions of the EMG coloring books!!  I'll be popping over there as a co-host of the event.  Hope to see many of you from the Stamps by AuroraWings group.

March New Release Showcase


Welcome to our new release showcase!  Today we are introducing three new Sprites to the Aurora Wings Sprites Collection.  It's always fun to bring you these little babies inspired by flowers, animals, seasons, and food.  I'm sure I'll continue to be inspired to make something new and different from some other categories, too.

First, meet the Unicorn Sprite!  Everybody loves unicorns.  They're just so special.  Out of all the fantasy creatures, they may be the most popular right up there with dragons - only unicorns seem so pure and gentle they definitely tug at our heartstrings like no other.

The Unicorn Sprite is available in JPG and PNG, coming in at 1800 pixels square (6 x 6 inches or 15.2 cm x 15.2 cm at 300 dpi).  She is sure to be a great addition to your AW digi stash for making all kinds of projects from cards to wall art for a baby's room.

Next up, meet the Easter Bunny Sprite, dressed up in a fuzzy bunny suit, busily coloring the eggs to get them ready for Easter.  You can help him by coloring this in!  Not only will this make cute Easter cards, this will be a fun coloring page for the young ones in your family.

And last, but not least, we have a new flower Sprite.  Meet Anemone Sprite!  Looking a little bit like poppies, the anemone flower grows from bulbs, and come in a beautiful array of colors, which makes this digi fun to color (Especially if you are like me and enjoy coloring Sprites in naturalistic colors, but they're fantasy creatures, so any color palette works just fine!) and perfect for many different occasions - birthday, just because, weddings, or Mother's Day - which call for lots of flowers.  Check out the beautiful work from our designers!
