Splashy Jewels

I have always loved the movie, Splash. The necklace that Daryl Hannah wears is beautiful! This is my own version, inspired by it. ❤



Lotus on wood

Another lotus.  This was painted on wood with craft paint to replace the top of a jewelry box I found at Goodwill.  ❤


Ocean Themed Quill

Hello all!  I was recently asked to participate on Building the Magic!  It’s a blog that encourages and helps to create magic, especially in the lives and experiences of people who LARP, do theater, go to renaissance fairs, or just want more magic in their lives.  The creator believes that details matter in this sort of thing.  So when she asked me to share some of my knowledge and also to bring magic to more of the world, how could I resist?

I decided to make another magical quill.  She recently made a tutorial for a “leather” bound journal and I thought this would be a perfect companion.  You can read the tutorial for the quill here.

Here is a picture of the finished product:


And yes! It really works!

Stay tuned for more artsy posts and maybe even links to more tutorials.  ❤

Faeries Everywhere!

Normally I would not post stuff as sketchy as this, but I consider these to be finished pieces that I absolutely love.  I was first inspired by a friend picking a tarot card, the Star.  I started wondering what a star faery costume would look like. So I drew it and colored it in colored pencils.  Then I started to draw more.  The flower one is inspired by a rose Lolita dress I made a long time ago, and the dark one is inspired by some wings I made a while back.  I would love to make these.  Maybe I could even make some for other people and get a group going!  What do you think?  ❤

Old is Made New

I found an old filing cabinet in the shed out back.  I needed one, but didn’t have the money to get a new one. So I decided to use this one.  It had some dirt and grime that I cleaned up, and a little rust on the top.  Once I started spray painting, though, it looks great!  It’s currently not finished, but here are some in progress pictures for you!  This is after one coat of primer, once coat of base color, and some stenciled patterns in white colored pencil.  After I finish coloring them in with paint or other media I am going to spray a clear coat to protect it.  ❤
