THEY ARE DONE! My first completed pieces in months


It has been almost 3 months since I have completed any new pieces. As I mentioned the other day, I finally got to put paint on my brush and get "cooking". The final touches on my snow people have been added and I was able to take a few pics today to share. Thank goodness they were done before summer! LOL
Now that my health is back on track, I am moving along nicely and hope to get more current pieces for you to see....I have bunnies on the brain!


I am re-opening my Etsy shop this week and will have these listed by Friday.

I have also repaired my poor vintage Santa find. His leg is strong again. He has a fresh coat of gesso. He is coming along nicely.

  1. These are so sweet! They almost have a wax-like finish; how did you achieve this look? Or is it a trade secret?!

  4. Hi Jill!
    No trade secret at all......the truth be told, I always use a Matte varnish spray as the final coat before I add any glitter/mica....and I had a brand new can. I sprayed them and it was gloss, not matte! The can was labeled wrong. At first I was disappointed but after they were done, I liked the way the mica flakes and the gloss shine looks.
    Almost icy looking.
    So, sometimes mistakes lead to a nice outcome :)

  6. I hope you are feeling better, and Santa looks so good! And the snowmen and women too! It's nice to see snowmen are still about.

  9. hi Cyndi! I'm trying to put together a private little easter ornament swap. 6 girls would each make 6 ornies one for each girl. ornies would get mailed to me first week of April and i will mail them right back out. Wondering if you would be interested. It would be fun to "craft" with you! please dont feel bad if you dont think you cant. we all get busy sometimes and have to say no. but I am hoping you can squeeze it it and play with us! I always love the things you make!
    hugs
