I finished a couple more pieces and they are now available in my Etsy shop.
One of them was inspired by a challenge by Sarah Trumpp in her 50 Canvases in 2014 series. This particular challenge was to sew on the canvas. I have a limited bead selection so its not as elaborate as it could have been but I think it adds nicely to the canvas.
I just finished some cards featuring the amazing Frida Kahlo. I never understood what the fascination was with her until I started reading about her life. I have to say...I get it now. I loved these cards so much I seriously debated keeping them myself. I'm really loving these faces and having so much fun refining and honing them. I thought they lent themselves quite well to my tribute to Frida and I got to incorporate some of my favorite quotes of hers.
They are now available for sale in my Etsy shop. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
I've taken the summer off from stressing about my art "business" and I'm back to enjoying my first love...art trading! The creative juices are flowing and I'm creating things I love so much they make me want to cry...and not stressing at all over whether anyone else likes them!
Here are a few pics of my worktable with various projects in the works. I'll be posting some finished stuff too just to share my joy. There is nothing in this world that gives me more complete and total satisfaction than creating something from nothing.
