She Got It

I have a new blogging stop that I wish to share. Rella at Faerieluna makes the most wonderful art dolls. Well they are so much more than art dolls. They are Mothies. I won't even try to describe them to you. They are stunning and you really must go see them. Rella was the recipient of this special little envelope from me, The Wingkeeper. She received it and now, I'm expecting a little Mothie. I'm told it is already in flight to me. I can't wait and I'm sure I can share with you when it arrives. You can have one too because Rella has just set up her Etsy.

My Weekend

And now about my weekend. Most of Saturday was spent in experimental mode. I was inspired by article in Somerset Studio by Lisa Bebi, titled "Beach, Tints, & Beeswax". Par for me, I kinda did my own thing and it all started when I rediscovered some beeswax in a stash from long ago.

(click on image for a closer look)
My first effort at this was spoiled in the final beeswax stage. Determination took over and I did another. The image that I used is from my original "Flyaway" piece and is printed on muslin smaller than the original. I used molding paste with a stencil to accomplish the floral swag on the right and bottom left corner. One of the foam egg stamps from the tutorial was used and stamped on a strip of black fabric. Beeswax was the final step; however, you may not be able to see it in this picture. It is not completely covered with beeswax, just random around the edge. It is a nice effect. The piece is on 11 X 14 canvas board. I think it will look stunning in a frame. I'm thinking I will list this on my Etsy.

More later,
Sharon

  3. Yes, doesn't FaerieLuna/Rella create wonderful Mothies? I am in love with them! Her and I were very lucky to receive something really special from you in the mail last week. I can't keep my eyes off the print you sent me! Of course, that also made my week really difficult because I had SO much work to do (hence my "no blogging" these past few days). How can one concentrate on their pc screen and translation project when a little beauty is just nearby, wanting to be admired?! Thanks again :-) And I really like your wax collage :-)
