I had two art group meetings this week. So I have some fun pieces to share. My friend Jeanne has gone crazy for crowns! I just love anything she does! She blows me away with her creativity. These fabric crowns are made from various kinds of fabric. The two in the photo above are thicker upholstery type materials.
The two photos above are art pieces made by another friend, Donna J.. She used encaustic wax, acrylic paints, oil based paints and collage pictures to create these. They are stunning in person.
This wonderful thing is Rosalyn's piece for the swap. I love it! Very creative idea to take Edger Allen Poe's poem The Raven and type it up and print it out then stamp some spooky images on the pages. The cover which is what the photo to the left is, she wrote out on a ledger paper she copied then stamped blood splatters and added the glittered bird to the front. It is bradded all together at the top. The photo below is a page inside with the poem on it. She also gave us a cute black metal sign shaped like a tombstone with a bird on top of it. You can kind of see it behind the piece in the photo.
These fabulous creations are for one of my classes in Kansas the weekend of November 5th. I will be teaching how to make a soldered crown. More info on the classes later but I wanted to show these. I just finished them today. I also will be teaching this same class at Stamp Asylum in November. No date yet though. We have not got the schedule done out that far yet. Anyway, I added these vintage rhinestone buttons to the peaks on the crowns. Also, I added wire spirals to the sides of the outside peaks. The one crown has a vintage rhinestone pin attached to the front. These babies are very elegant indeed!
