A little glimmer of goodness…

YOU are "OFFICIALLY" invited! click to enlarge

A jolly hello to you my sweet friends!

I feel like I have oodles and oodles of goodness to share with you but have been preoccupied getting ready for my Holiday OPEN STUDIO THIS Friday night & Saturday. I don’t know how it crept up on me so quickly as there are still TONS of things to do but I thought I would take a breath and share some of the fun things I have been working on…

These ornaments were a blast to make alhough they have taken me WAY longer than I could ever have imagined! They have a wooden base which I gessoed an added rich layers of paint.  Some of them are layered with vintage book pages, sealed, then glazed and painted on top of so look closely. I hand stamped words on many of them using my vintage letter stamps. Here are a few of my favorites…

I decided to mount some of them on wood and did a series of fun backgrounds using some of the same mixed media techniques. They are all completely unique and special. Each one is sealed, ready to hang and would love a good home. They look really cute on the wall, placed on a bookshelf, little nook or could be given to someone special. As cheesy as it sounds I have put a little piece of my heart in each one.

Don't these look cute on these little easels?

I have also been staging a corner of my studio completely dedicated to L2T work which I am quite proud of and can’t wait to photograph and share. Millie and I were working away late last night and I finished the framing and packaging of some of our NEW, never before seen work and hung the first in the series of our TAOS project! You will be the first to see this labor of love so hope you can make it to the studio. More to come…YIPPEE!
