I haven’t had much time to participate in any changes lately but I finally had some free time this week to make a card for the latest Lawnscaping challenge. It’s inspired from the photo, I used red rhinestones for the apples, all stamps are Lawn Fawn, pattern papers are from CTMH and My Mind’s Eye.

I’m Nuts!!

Like that’s a surprise :) This card is for the current Lawnscaping challenge, this time around it’s a sketch from Jennifer R. I used the squirrel and acorn stamps from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the ‘Burbs set colored with Prismacolor pencils. The words are from Hello Friend from Close To My Heart and the pattern paper is My Mind’s Eye.

Critters

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

I recently went to a wonderful large antique show with a friend (who bought a super cool vintage Ouija board) and found a couple of really cute children’s books from the 60’s. People are always asking me where I find the book I use for my art work and my best recommendations are used book shops and antique shows, you can usually find some really great books, vintage photos, postcards, music sheets, etc.

Here’s a couple of soldered pendants I made using some illustrations from one of those books.

A tiny cute squirrel, the back says “oh nuts”:

A sweet fawn, the back says “oh deer”:

a sly little fox, the back says “foxy”:

and my personal fave a chimp in a party hat and pink bow tie:

I think the back is pretty funny too:

Into the Woods

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Woodland animals and themes are so hot right now and I love them! Lots of deer, mushrooms, squirrels, etc, so cute! So I’ve made some more  pendants with some woodland critter illustrations cut from that same vintage 1929 children’s book I’ve been using alot lately (poor book looks like swiss cheese now:))

Cute little squirrel in a red jacket and black pants, the back says “Mr. Bushy Tail”:

A little fawn, this is one of my favorite!:

I really want to find some vintage images of some mushrooms to make some pendants with, I love mushrooms, they always remind me of Alice in Wonderland:)

Once Upon a Time

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

I recently found a wonderful children’s story book from 1929 that has some beautiful illustrations in it and decided to use them for some soldered pendants, on the backs I added words I cut out from the stories.

This first one was about the story of a little bunny who wanted red wings, on the back it says “I wish I had a pair of little red wings”

This next one is a pretty red fox who was down and thinking, the back says “the fox thought and thought”

This one is a cute little grey squirrel and the back says “Mr. Bushy Tail”
