Hi y'all! Ever browse through Pinterest, see a project and go, "Crap. I have to try that NOW."? Yeah, me too. I saw some lovely Altoid tin art, did a search, saw MORE lovely Altoid tin art and had to make some of my own. I'm have several designs and themes in mind, but here are a couple I've finished up.
Happy Sunday, y'all!
It's been ages since I've posted so I'm playing a bit of catch up on my blog. I've been busy the past couple of months with work and traveling. My hubby and I took a trip to the UK in May for my 50th birthday. We had a fabulous time seeing England, Scotland and Wales and I had hoped to do some urban sketching while we were there, but we were on the move so much, I did most of my sketches from photos when I got back.
The sketches are made with Fresh Paint on a Surface Pro 3. I hope to get Photoshop on my tablet soon, but Fresh Paint worked fine for the small, quick sketches I'm doing. I hope to make a digital journal of our trip once all the drawings are done.
Welcome back, y'all!
*Drum Roll* It's the final blog post for our Build a Line Challenge and I'm excited to show you my "stuff". Before the reveal, a big thanks to Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B'Sue Boutiques for teaching this build a line class.
My souvenir spoon line has gone in a couple of directions and my Travel line has two collections: "Steamer Trunk" and "Route 66". Steamer Trunk is sepia toned, old world nostalgia. Route 66 has more of an Americana, rockabilly, five and dime kitsch vibe. I'm not ready to reveal my Route 66 pieces yet, but they are fun, y'all! *wiggly brows*
The Steamer Trunk collection is the one that has evolved the most. It's using the souvenir spoons from around the world, found objects and vintage travel graphics. Check it out:
I have lots more stuff, but I needed to get this posted tonight and I ran out of time for picture taking. :) I hope you like what you see!
Please check out the links below that feature my fellow jewelry designers. It has been a pleasure to participate in this wonderful project. :) Thanks again for stopping by!
