...two steps back ... one step forward ... cha cha cha!
Decided earlier today that this weeks post should be a bit of a look back.
Not that far back actually but none the less, previous.
I've been painting like mad on new designs to release 'soon' and found myself reminiscing.
Below are several pieces that are available through my distributor Ruth Schmuff Designs
Like old family pictures, they bring back a host of memories for me.
|'Camel Flowers'© |
close up detail ... when I see this I think ... wow, I was focused !
|Different angle of top detail. |
I'm working on another design right now
that's a larger version of this burst of color.
Never a dull moment.
|From major technique to meditative basketweave.|
This is my Provence Purse© design.
I even made the strap basic Kumihimo
with a strong nylon craft cord.
This piece was actually designed for a friend
to stitch for her secret Santa gift.
Funny part is the giftee was also the owner of the camels!
Dear friend of mine as well, Kim Hollifield.
|So much in the detail, |
loved finding crystals for his wreathed neck.
|By this time...|
you know how much I love designing borders.
|Mondays Belt Design|
the canvas this is laid across is the beginning of the painted Provence Purse.
original piece designed to fit the
Weekender bag from Lee Designs
This bag has seen some miles!
|I'm not sure what I'll call this yet...Sunburst, Happiness....|
I see a lot when I look at the different elements in this piece. Below is the beginning of it's new life on the painted canvas.
|Happy Sunburst....maybe....the beginnings.|
Only the pinks & red are in so far.
I see feathers too....
|Sir Chancelot's thought bubble...|
'just name it already'.
