I feel like a broken record but once again time gets away and before you know it a week goes by since my last post. Ah but it's for good reason........I have been creatively busy.
The mind whirls
The ideas twirl
Projects waiting to be unfurled
The supplies are out
I want to scream and shout
This is what bliss is all about
With all the to-dos turning 'round in my head
Tearing cloth, needle and thread
It's early to rise and late to bed
My newest project...............
A 3-tiered metal "basket" +
2 sets of test tubes with caps (from EBay) +
paint (regular and glass) +
Strips of various print fabric +
wee metal bird cages +
3 wee silk doll blanks "dolled" up +
a hook in the ceiling =
I love it, it brings so much color and with the light from the window the colors on the tubes shine! I am sure I will hang more things from it and things inside the "baskets" over time. Bliss!
So I have all kinds of paint..........but I wanted to keep the fabric related paint all together. So 10" cakes pans from Michaels (2) + an old wood lazy susan cut down + metal tube attached with nuts + decoupaged fabric (I ended up painting over it) + BohoHandyman = a rotating caddy for the fabric paint............BUT........
Learning curve.......It needs another tier (or 2) and a heavier pan - galvanized metal would be great. There are ones you can buy ready-made out there but they are $$$$. So for now I will be using this for some of the fabric paint/supplies until BohoHandyman and I can find the materials for a new one. (This one will not go to waste)
(I had to take a photo in the kitchen because right now my studio is a ghastly mess!!)
I am working on something that will be completed during an ART PLAY DATE with a good friend of mine in a couple weeks.
So there you have it my friends - not to mention the baby quilt top is done and will be completed when the batting I ordered arrives. AND well you know there is more.........
I hope you are enjoying YOUR bliss..........do something each day that makes your heART sing!
See you soon!!
P.S. I tend to watch(well listen, ha!) movies while I'm working - many on TCM (Turner Classic Movies).....some Netflix streaming, HULU and Amazon streaming. If you have any good recommendations for things to watch please let me know! ♥
