Hi Peeps! :)
I bet you thought I was never going to blog again LOL! My computer crashed before Thanksgiving and we just ordered a new hard drive and monitor a few days ago and I'm waiting for it to arrive so for now I have to use my Father-In-Laws computer! I cannot wait until mine comes in!!!
I've been busy with family and knitting for a craft show I was in that I haven't had any time to play with my canvas's but I sat down Wednesday and Thursday and finished the following:
This one I was inspired by Julie Nutting's Collage Couture. I sketched out the doll then put her on book paper and cut her out. I also sketched out the blouse, skirt, sash, headband and shoes then cut them out of patterned paper. I used Pink Paisley's 12 x 12 Butterfly Garden paper for the background of the canvas and for her outfit I used Basic Grey's 6x6 Serendipity paper pack. The butterflies are wood veneer from Studio Calico and I mixed blue, white and green paint together and painted them. I didn't come up with the quote but I can't remember where I saw it. This canvas is 11 x 14
Ok here is the next one:
This one I actually put together on my own. I used Tim Holtz Sizzix die; Alterations Sewing Room and Weathered Clock and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Splatters. I used dress pattern tissue paper for the background and material for the dress and some lace I had. I wrapped yellow and white bakers twine around the spool and threaded the buttons with it. You can't see it but the twine wraps around. I guess I'm going to have to outline it. The quote is not mine but an old saying I heard. A stitch in time saves nine. This canvas is 8 x 10
Well I hope you liked my new creations! I will be making more of the Julie Nutting dolls. They are so much fun to draw and turn into art.
If I don't blog before Wednesday I hope you all have a Wonderful Christmas!!
