Isn't this cute?? And so easy to create!
I saw Wine Cork Pumpkins on Pinterest and thought they'd make great table centerpieces for a Taste & Buy Wine Fundraiser I am hosting in support of our local Sea Cadets. Best part, other than being gifted corks for this by Di Profio Wines, was that they turned out just like I saw them on Pinterest. No Pinterest Fail here! HaHa YAY!!
Thanks for watching me create these live on Ustream this week. Here is the recording as posted to youtube. Happy Crafting!!
On Thursday night's ustream broadcast, I created this ornament painting on a 16x20 wood canvas.
Normally I don't like doing anything Christmas-y before Remembrance Day but I wanted to create a canvas that could be made into a banner for my storefront window and vista print had a banner sale going on. Wink. :)
Love how this turned out. Lots of texture from collaging papers to the base of the canvas and adding some extra layers on the ornament.
I painted with acrylic paints (Golden and Chroma's A2).
The recording of the live broadcast can be found below.
This is a painting that needs to be appreciated in person.... if you're in the area - be sure to stop in, see the painting and say HI!
I recently got my hands on some of her Little Flyers designs and just wanted to play!!
I was thinking of a fun, fast project to create here in the studio for stocking stuffers when I came across some fabulous pencil roll patterns on Pinterest and I thought, "Wouldn't this be fun for a creative kid?"
If you search pencil rolls in Pinterest, lots of free patterns will pop up for you - LOVE it! As you can see, I created this for pencils... but I'm thinking I may just create another one with two sewn pockets, smaller depth, made for crayons! And since it would be for a younger kid, replace the ribbon with an elastic! Hummm... so many possibilities!
Little Flyers is available now from Riley Blake Designs and be sure check out her Happy Flappers fabric too! SEW cute..., get it? *wink* I have a project on the go with "the flappers". I'll be sure to share when it's complete!
