Dear Readers and Friends:
Creativity is on fire right now.
First some good news, I am featured on the Over 30 Cosplay page on Facebook today. Please take a gander here:
Also, as promised in my last blog: Today is the first in a series of “works in progress” or in other words, pieces I’ve tried to finish or new ones I’m working on for my steam show this summer.
First up, a look at a pile of pieces in line for work:
Next up, I’ve just reclaimed a water damaged piece and framed it.
“Radishes” will be going in the Etsy store soon.
Next, “Heart in Hand” an old embossing I’ve been meaning to frame. I created the embossing and used hand made paper. I really like this piece in that it reminds me of old fashioned letters, when Victorian writing was truly an art. I mounted it in a frame but it can be easily removed should someone want to take the card and put down their sweet thoughts on elegant script.
It too will go in the Etsy store with this Butterfly Shadow Box I finally finished today. First, I had to reconstruct a real butterfly I’d found in my parking garage (I’m assuming it died in the heat somehow; it was a pretty hot day).
I then added at to a shabby chic college of press type, dyed paper, an illustration and cloth flower.
Then into a shadow box it went. Another piece for the Etsy store.
I’ll have more works in progress including many more steampunk items popping. Watch this space for some awesome things! Listed below are some updates and as always, thank you for reading!
