I'm running out of wall space and budget for art supplies so I deceided to take the plunge and open an Etsy shop. It is so easy, I figured I would take the step and see what happens. These are the little works of art that currently I'm working on adding.
From my scraps of purple fabric art I made these little mixed media quilts. Originally, I was thinking they would be for the Art-O-Mat, but instead decieded to add some words and frame them in hand painted frames. The frames are simple little frames, but I added about six layers of semi-transparent paint. The colors shine with such depth. I love the little inspirational messages, reminders to Love, Hope, Laugh. The words had to be short, or else they became rather cramped. I had to include Grace though, since I had Faith and Hope. I couldn't leave out one daugher's middle name. I plan to make some larger pieces that I can include the words Dream, Believe and Princess. My hope is that these pieces can find a new home and somebody can enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them.
