New Art in the Studio

I've been working a little more with painted projects lately, but just on personal/gift projects and not things for the shop. I enjoy projects like this when the weather allows and when I have time. Last week I showed a fun baby shower gift I made and here is a similar piece I made for my own studio.

I have a tall skinny piece of wall space next to my bathroom door that can be seen when you walk in my studio door from the outside. I've been looking for a piece to fit this area, but had no luck in stores. So I decided to take on the project myself! As usual, it took me forever to decide on artwork and a design! But once I did, it came together so nicely! Are you surprised I didn't choose pink :)

 
Like my baby shower piece, this one also had a "mistake" take place during the painting. As I was painting the outer edge white, I accidentally dripped white paint on top of one of the feathers! The blue paint is spray paint, but the white paint is acrylic paint. And to my surprise, I found that the excess paint wiped off with a damp cloth and didn't hurt the blue paint! So I decided to paint both of the feathers white as well!
 
Note to self though...next time use a different font that doesn't require so much weeding! Luckily I could sit and watch Netflix as I took all those tiny pieces of tape off :)

  2. I love this! And I love that you take the time to make things for yourself, when I imagine you're always feeling the pressure to make for your shop!

  5. Netflix and craft afternoons are the best. Isn't it great when accidents turn into something awesome?

  9. I know what you mean about saving the time-consuming stuff for personal projects and gifts. I learned that lesson the hard way...maybe I'm still learning it haha. Love the blue! :)
