I started with a project for a friend from church:
An apron with matching chef’s hat for their grand daughter …so cute!
As it was drying I worked on a canvas that I had already designed a background on—
I made my little boy a plaque for his room that we are going to give him for Christmas–
Created a tile for another Christmas present–
And last…started working on some ornaments.
I thank God for the time and the projects that keep me close to Him.
So I spent a few hours in my shop today and made a ton of fun stuff.
I painted, drew, mod podged, hot-glued and duct taped.
I love creating things.
I’m going to add some photos of today’s products of ARTING…
These are DUCT TAPE creations. Keychains, tin cans I covered and embellished, a magnetic photo frame I made out of the side of a cereal box, then some other frames I created from recycled stuff–cd case and a little plastic box that paper clips came in.
This is probably my favorite art to do…PAINTING on wood or whatever I can find. I love to illustrate quotes and sayings to be hung.
This is a little new idea I did. I found something like it on Pinterest. I actually just started putting things together. It actually looks better in person than it does in this pic. A cute way to keep an kind of small office supply.
This bag, I believe, is the CUTEST thing I made today. I created it using a canvas block to add to the front (attaching it with fabric glue) and then adding felt and buttons with very high temp hot glue (didn’t burn myself this time!) and then the owl is done with acrylic paint with HUGE bling eyes to go along with the Socrates quote: WISDOM BEGINS IN WONDER.
My whole theme today was quite eclectic; therefore, not really having a theme at all. I just gathered the stuff I had and started putting it together. What a FUN DAY!!!
I LOVE ARTING!
I DID! I DID!
