At least I hope to say, "Mission accomplished!" very soon! It seems as if I haven't accomplished much at all this summer. I'm doing something every day, but some of this and some of that is not getting one entire project completed. I hope by the end of July I can look around and finally see some finished projects. :)
However, I can't take off the entire summer without working on handmade items for my shop, so I have made another set of angel wings and a wreath.
These angel wings are made from an old church hymnal dated 1951. I don't make these very often anymore as they are time consuming, but I thought I'd do a set once in a while so I wouldn't forget how I make them. When I designed them a few years back, I didn't write out instructions... which is something I guess I should do at some point.
The more traditional round wreath... possibly it's round shape is the only thing traditional about it... was made from a 1956 World Atlas and Gazetteer book. I decided to make a more colorful wreath instead of my usual ivory and black theme.
I've not abandoned my painting. In fact, I can hardly wait to get back to painting. I just have a few more things to do before I clear off my workspace and say hello to canvas and brushes and tubes of paint again!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit my art blog! :)
Take care and God bless,
