I actually ws able to spend some time at the lathe today!
It was so much fun! I am not quite done with the first mushroom from the small branch of the magnolia tree.
I am going to make a merry little trio for my daughter
from different woods and different heights/shapes.
It's nice not to be 'wrong' for a shape! lol
And I added a bit of personality to the snowmen!
I ended up just painting black dots with acrylic paint
and then sealing it with the spray lacquer.
Now to find some festive narrow ribbons!
And I began the piecing for the top and bottom rows of stars-
only 9 more to go!
The latest watercolor card.
Inspired by a recent post on YouTube by Ellen Crimi-Trent.
The mushroom is so fun!!!! The snowmen turned out great, too. And that painting is amazing! Great technique of the blank silhouette for the deer; it evokes the stillness and silence of that scene.ReplyDelete
What jolly little snowmen!!ReplyDelete
Your watercolor is lovely. I'll have to look at that tutorial.
Mushrooms! I love mushrooms!!!!ReplyDelete
Those snowman are adorable!
The snowmen!!!! Oh my goodness! It's amazing how the personalities emerged with the addition of a few dots.ReplyDelete
The mushroom is so cool too. Do you have a pattern of sorts for the lathe or is all of your work "freehand"?
That stag is gorgeous. Such a peaceful scene.
Pretty projects all!ReplyDelete
