I recently told you I've been working hard getting ready for my large Fall shows.
My studio is a mess, but it is a beautiful colorful mess full of glitter, tulle, feathers & beautiful fabric trimmings scattered everywhere.
I was hard at work on hair pieces a few nights ago when I had the sudden urge to get away from it and paint something.
Do you ever feel like that? To keep my creative mojo going I sometimes feel like I need to break away from what I've been doing and play with something different.
I picked up this wooden heart shelf at Goodwill last week for $2. It was just plain brown wood; I didn't even think to get any before pictures. I painted a hot pink layer, then a layer of white paint strongly diluted with water and rubbed off the white as it was drying.
Then I added some little whimsical designs in a couple places.
I may sale this at my Fall shows or it may go in Felicity's room. I don't know. I didn't have any intentions for the use of it when I painted it, I was just having fun.
After breaking away for a bit I was able to get back to "work" and I designed some new felt wool hair treats that I just love.
These were so fun to make - just looking at them makes me smile!
I will sale the sweet treats above at my Fall shows.
