Every once in a while I actually get some art work or craft done. It's been a while since I posted anything I have done, so I thought I'd post a few photos of projects from the past few months.
The lamp was an inexpensive find at Michaels, but came in a very plain shade of putty. I knew exactly where it was going and who it would be for, but I had to make a few changes.
The nursery would be done in shades of pink, celery, beige, cream, white, milk chocolate, and a very light true butter. The theme would be French Country. So I painted a few of the details on the lamp and painted wood letters to match in the baby's name. I added small crystal fringe around the base of the silk shade and thought it could use some pretty flowers as well.
The flowers only came in that creamy true butter so I grabbed a can of floral spray and tinted a few of the petal edges the softest shade of pink and added them to the shade base.
That mommy was happy with the results and soon I am off to paint more nursery furniture to match, big brother names in wood letters and a toy trunk to boot. Sounds like my kind of fun!
Another mommy asked me to copy one of her favourite paintings and switch it up just a bit. We changed the mommy from the artist's version to the actual mommy, same with baby and added a daddy too. I made the colours more vivid and put a bit of pearl essence throughout the water and shells. It took forever, but it eventually was a success.
I have a few more projects in the works, but they are also taking time. So when I can I'll get them finished and then post some more.
