i love to stop and photograph my work along the way. this seemed to be a good place to pause and step back. i'm pretty happy with how its turning out so far too :) it might be difficult to tell but i am painting on half of a round table top.
i've done this before and i think these make for great paintings to hang above doorways.
maybe if i work hard i will be able to share the finished piece tomorrow.
also, i just created an art doll portfolio on pinterest showcasing many of my dolls. some date back to 2007! you're welcome to come have a look. they are quite a bunch of characters if i do say so myself!
i've decided that my first blog post here at my new blog should be about my latest project and what's been on my mind...PAPER WREATHS!
i remember seeing these years back and thinking they were cool but being too busy to figure out how to make them. this year i came across this article showing how to make 88 different wreaths and went straight to the paper ones. i also watched a few videos on youtube and found this one to be quite helpful:
in the end, i kind of mixed and matched the instructions i had read and watched and came up with what you see above. i think they will make great christmas gifts for my friends and family. boxing them up for shipping will be a bit of a chore but i'll figure it out.
just thought i'd share this stuff in case you want to try one too. some friends and i are getting together in the near future to have a wreath making get together. maybe i'll take photos or make a video if they'll let me :)
