Well, it has been a while since I wrote anything. I have been very busy at work. That is really a good thing.
I am currently working on quite a few projects. I am going to bead a mermaid, some seaweed, and some fish on a piece of fabric. I used acrylic paint and textile medium to draw everything in. Next I will bead everything. I might put the craft batting on first though. I have gotten a nice hoop though and if I use that I won’t do the batting first. This will be my first attempt at really beading something. I have added beads and buttons to other projects, but never a full person in beading. The mermaid is going to be done in all beads. Well, her face is going to be clay.
I am going to put my paintings in a holiday sale. I have a lot of things to work on before then. Lots of paintings to do in a month. I can do them. I sat here at work and drew out the outlines of things that I want to do. I had a great spurt of imagination. I ordered some frames and matts for my projects. I don’t know yet how many pieces I can put in the show. I know that the prices are to be between $20 and $600. I have been working on some ink drawings. I think they all turned out pretty well. I need to take pictures of everything before I pay for my spot in the craft show. The lady who is putting it on wants to see my work. Of course she might tell me that she doesn’t think my stuff will sell and if so then I guess I won’t be in the show. But, I think I have some good pieces that will work. Especially when they are matted and framed. I also started a project with markers. We will see how that turns out. I am trying not to get my hopes up about the craft show, but it is hard not to be a little exicted. I will write about my trip to the shop on Friday.
Well, I guess that is about it for my projects right now. Nikki and Jacquie are waiting on my table for me to do something further with them. I need to sew everything together. That is the part that is hardest for me. Getting to the sewing machine work.
Okay…that’s it for the day. Almost time to go home. Need to pack things up and hit the road. I can continue on my artwork in just a little while. I do work for art supplies. Ha, Ha.
