School started! Yay...and this has nothing to do with wanting to be away from my children (even though there are moments! LOL!) I am just so happy to be back to a time of structure in our schedule. This summer was just crazy!
I have not been in my studio as much as I would like this summer, but I have been able to make a few things...wanna see?!
My amazing friend, Becky Shaffer, (who I have talked about before) had a birthday a few weeks ago and since she has HUGE love and crush on Melody Ross and the whole Brave Girls Club, I thought I would make her a little something to remind her that she, too, is a brave girl.
It's an 8x10 mixed media canvas using Fancy Pants Design's Park Bench line. I, of course, used my Tattered Angels sprays along with some acrylics and my FAVORITE wood grain roller stamp by glitz design.
Here are a few close ups! My favorite part is the wings. :)
Also this summer....
I didn't get to take a lot of pictures and I will do a FULL CHA post later, BUT I had the awesome privilege of making a few projects for Marion Smith Design's new line "Mad Tea Party" for the trade show.
I LOVED the Alice in Wonderland influences so much that for the Printer's Tray (by 7 Gypsies) I actually used a vintage Golden Book copy of Disney's Alice in Wonderland and each section tells a different piece of the story.
Here are a couple of closeups!
The framed piece was actually my use of scraps. I found a cheap black plastic frame used my bits and piece of leftover paper to make my background and then hand-rolled some (umm...a lot!) of roses. The quote is one of my favorites from the classic Alice in Wonderland.
A good resource for quotes is a website called Goodreads. It has everything from literature to famous quotes and all sorts of other goodies.
Sorry this is so short...I've got some great things in the works that I know you will all be as excited as I am about!
Until then my friends...stay you...and stay creative!
