While everything here is very slowly opening up, I'm still being a bit of a hermit. I've ventured out a bit , but just a bit. Again, I'm so happy that my art keeps me from going a little crazy. So.....what did this month bring for me creatively?
Well, since I haven't been out to flea markets and garage sales, I've been shopping virtually and actually finding some pretty good deals especially on Ebay. I found some great wood cigar boxes, and now I have more than I've ever had, so I decided to take a different direction with them.
A little assemblage--
I love going through my stash and making stories
I also like supporting small businesses which is even more important now. I found a favorite Etsy shop--the name of the shop is Hay Meadow Creek Crafts where they make plain wood shapes--lots of different house shapes, which is what I'm looking for. The 2 houses that I used in my cigar boxes was from their shop.
The pieces are all sanded and ready to go!
I've also been recycling my old art images and making collages out of them--
The face is a sketch I made and I then printed it out on a dictionary page, and the sunflowers are from a painting I made a few years ago.
and another one...
same thing--just with lilacs in mind
And back to my journal--I had lots of fun--
I liked these so much, I just couldn't shut them up in a journal, so I put them on 8 x 10 wood cradle boards--
And they're now in my Etsy shop HERE
So, basically I've been doing the same that I have been doing for the last few months, but now that Summer is coming, we might take a few day trips cautiously--we'll have to see.
Stay safe everyone!!
