Hanging hoop Art

 

Here is a new little project I have been working on.

This is just for fun to bulk up some items for up and coming craft shows this summer! I absolutely love the look of vintage textbook style illustrations and wanted to go further then just a framed picture.

I wanted to create something that would look great collage style. It is one of my favorite looks! Like this!

This look is especially great if you are unable to paint your apartment walls. And is fantastic for keeping you inspired.

Each image is printed high quality on thick textured re purposed duck canvas and stretched in various sized  wood embroidery hoops.  Some I have incorporated some fabric also to make them a little different!

 

I am in debate on making these available in my etsy.  What are your thoughts?

I will see how they do at my 1st Craft show in VA on April 15th  Please come by!

I love making these little guys! And I can create custom ones if interested. They could be sweet for wedding decor I feel in addition to home decor!

But all the same this is what I have been up to! I hope everyone is enjoying April so far. It is a pretty swell month I must say.

Amping Up Arts & Crafts with Power Tools & Bones

This is a new line I will be creating for Etsy.com,  Art in the Park in Westminster MD (hopefully)and perhaps other vendor type shows in the future.

I have always loved the look of antlers, the unique shapes and colors and no 2 are ever alike. Coming from a West Virgina back ground I noticed antler art is usually the interest of county folk and rustic lodge decor type and that inst a style I particularly  care for.

Being a lover of Etsy, I paroozed though and found a fantastic shop selling their antler finds. I dont want to give away my little secret but Mark of hiddentreasures4u.etsy.com  is a super friendly seller with reasonable prices! After a few conversations he helped me start my new collection.

So with this new collection I tried to create a shabby chic, mod pieces of original artwork using naturally shed antlers.      For this piece in particular I used a 16 X 20 piece of sanded down pine, watered down acrylic and graphite to create the white rabbit and with the help of my father, some power tools  and an antler I created the Jackalope.

I am working on my next antler inspired piece today! I going back and forth between an owl or a heavily fringed girl… opinions?
