Taking a Break to Paint!..... {& a giveaway}


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.

These below are listed in my shop now.  Use discount code "welcome2012" to get 20% off.
