Saturday was very nice, but today is terrible. Terrible cause I am sick that is. I did get a super rare nap though! Wow. Too bad I need more sigh! I am all inspired with no energy to execute.
I got to borrow pallets from some super artists and clean off all the unused paint on some random papers I plan to use in journals.
I opened up my old mural screen and tried to fantasize about working on it. I hope to start back on it by the end of Feb. Feels good to push some paint around but I am nervous to start cause it seems like an eternity since I painted.
Mom looks awesome in my new wig. The color so works with her and her color style. I like it but it is so hard to hide my dark hair.
I will post better pictures from my real camera later. Being surrounded buy juicy paint and the bustle of creative artists all around is almost too much to bear. I was really enjoying the vibe although I was a bit occupied by my sweet happy daughter.
I did manage to grab s bit of paint myself and get some color on my big Valentine heart pieces.
They are coming along. I bet 2 more trips to the studio and they will be finished.
I have a small possibility that I might make it back to the studio before they all leave. Crossing fingers!
I hope the photos look good in Etsy. It is so hard to tell with my messed up graphics card on my PC. I know the pics here are a bit grainy, but what do you expect from my I-touch hehe.
These heart earrings really are one of my total favorites. I had a necklace I used to make and wore one a lot, and I could not believe the outpouring of compliments on it!
I had a coworker that loved hearts. She got a pair of earrings just like these and she wore them almost everyday. They always put a smile on her face. I wish I had time to really pump these out. Oh well, at least I got these 4 pair. I hope to work on the journals tomorrow and get those done and listed too! I think that will be kind of a tall order with the house chores I have planned and work on Monday. I am sure I will get them close enough to have them listed by the end of next week.
I love this color on these! It is the only glass enamel I have hehe. Maybe someday I might get a good green and a good turquoise...and maybe a pinkish orange. I want to make the ear-wires with a special spiral to complete the look. I hope to finish these tonight. (crossing fingers) Off to breakfast with Baby and family for now. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
I am Testing the market to see if there is an interest. I want to make "Mommy Necklaces" with a bird twist. You have seen all the monogram and name necklaces out there, what do you think of my version?
I have 2 styles of songbird silhouette and then You would custom order you letter with a birth date or tiny message stamped into the back and pick from my small stone bead collection for the color drop. Do you think I should try to market these? I really like them.
And here are my copper hearts all cleaned up and ready for some shaping and a beautiful coat of red glass.
I picked up some more ranucullas (still cannot spell it) at the farmer's market in Goleta. I got an avocado too for lunch tomorrow. Yum! I hope to work on my earrings this weekend and the covers to those 2 journals. I feel I have a materials enough to start 2-4 more. I really like this size better than the 6x8 ones. I just need to paint up some security envelopes and stuff. I have some pictures I want to load off my real camera too. Hoping to do that today. I love my Touch for the quick uploads, but the photos are just a bit grainy, not as crisp as the real camera deal. Hehe
I am so happy I found some art time this 3 day weekend! And I was very productive. I started 2 new journals that I will be adding to my Etsy site.
These 2 are more like the one I am carrying with me right now. The pages are 4 by 6 inches. I like the size because it is just big enough to add photos and leaves a small bit of room to
Add text. I made the two pretty similar.
I used a lot of the paper I decorated myself and there are some real juicy pages at that.
At the end of my art time I have the insides of 1 book (2 signatures) finished, sewn and ready for a cover, and another 2 signatures ready to sew. Now I just need a day to finish the signatures and make 2 covers. Woot! When they are done I will post a ton of pictures in my Flickr and add them to my shop. Sure felt nice to get that much done. I plan on making more paper clay tags too. I just need to grab my box of handmade stamps from the old old studio.
