Wedding Gift

This is what I came up with when I decided to make a quick wedding gift for a friend of mine getting married today. This is similar to the design she had on her wedding invitation! Hope she likes it. Can't say I've ever done a painting before!

Prep work for Houston Part II

Finally making that cool Faux Leather Journal that Sue Bleiweiss had in Cloth Paper Scissors a year ago. This has been so much easier then I imagined. This is to highlight both the Golden Fluid Acrylic we carry as well as the Grungeboard. Both can be found at

We also are waiting for the arrival of Adirondack Color Wash which can be used on fabric, paper and other fibers. Here's what I was playing with on the piece of fabric below.

The Lettuce Green was put on while for fabric was totally dry and a wet paintbrush was used to move around the color. The Stream color on the bottom was applied to the fabric after it was wet. Then a wet paintbrush was used to fill in the white portions.

Then I used the Color Wash on a canvas. I applied the color and let it dry. Then I applied the 7 Gypsies tissue paper, coming soon, over the top. Now to add some dimensional bits to it.

These tags are in process and will be used on a piece but the are also spritzed with the Adirondack Color Wash.

Prep work for Houston

We are working on getting a few new display things ready for our front row booth in Houston. Here's a couple of new boxes to hold our found objects. I think they turned out really cool and want to make a few!!! Stay tuned for more updates. Many of the orders have gone in and the stuff should be arriving shortly. Then the play begins. Soooooooooo many new things in store for us.
