Heyo! It’s Monday. I haven’t really been posting consistently so I want to keep you posted on what I’ve been up to lately.
So I decided I am going to do 3 craft fairs in the next couple of months. I am really excited to be sharing a booth with my friend Jennifer from KittyBeast. I have a few things left over from past shows in the last year but I was inspired to do new things.
Here’s what I go so far:
Delicious scarves for Fall.
Soon to be pillow made of love.
Another love pillow!
Okay, next up. I was commissioned to do a replica of one of my paintings but in a smaller size. This is the original:
It’s hanging at a downtown restaurant and I was so pleased when I got the call about this painting. As any artist knows, it can be pretty difficult to completely copy a piece that was already made since all of them are originals but I have been trying.
Here’s where I am at:
It’s definitely not 100%. I would say I’m more at 60%. Getting there but much harder than I thought.
And finally, I have this wonderful client that I am working with now. Remember back when I asked on Facebook which stencil design or lack there of that you liked most? If you don’t remember, this was the image I posted:
Most people loved the scallop design (number 1) and I would agree. This was a nook in my clients bedroom that was going to be a space to relax and read.
So this weekend, we got the stencil which was smaller than anticipated. This is how it looked before:
I had her paint the base a beige color because the stencil would have me paint the coral over. You can kind of see the stencil in the bottom right corner. Small right?!
Here’s just a sneak peek:
I started off completely filling in the scallops with 2 coats of paint but then I had an idea to soften the wall and make it look more whimsical and that was to just use one coat so it looked a little spongier and more like coral. This is a beach theme in here. Also you will notice that we turned the stencil upside down because it reminded her more of a flower.
Anyways, I am going back on Friday for touch ups and to finish the top of the wall. That was 4 hours straight but so fun!
Here’s to a productive week!
