Hello to all you Lovely Friends! Hope your weekend was a good one!
I stayed up a little late on Saturday to paint, among other things...and was able to finish this!
Welcome to "Cozy Street" :) 11x14 inch Mixed Media on Canvas.
This was soooo much fun to do! I really enjoyed decorating the 4 little houses, playing around with each one to give them a personality of their own :) I can definately see more of these "neighborhoods" in my future!
I incorporated more crackle glaze into the mix (which I really like the look of)!
...And this time, I added a few more personal touches... These 2 little kitties in front are modeled after my own fluffy duo....1 black and 1 calico :)
I used a page from an old dictionary for this door and one roof...the definition of Home...
Can you see, also, I used beads as the doorknobs. I like the dimension and inviting feeling the little knobs give....like there would be tiny furniture and the smell of cinnamon coffee cake wafting thru the house if only you could just turn that little knob and go in :)
....And this house is number 502...the same address of my childhood home...where all cozy memories begin! My Dad's parents first resided in the home, and my parents still live there today. It is the hub where everyone meets and chats and mingles, where cousins, nieces, nephews, etc. run around and play...
I felt it necessary to pay homage to my true "first home" while on the cusp of moving into our own :)
knew I was drooling over her and offered to do a trade (I just love trades....everybody wins!) She makes gorgeous jewelry and does wonders with yarn, by the way....you might want to check her out if you're not lucky enough to know her already :)
I sent her Mushroom Cap Cottage, and I received this beautiful piece entitled, "Every Girl is a Princess". I adore that title, too! Thanks, Theresa! I will treasure her :oD
I hope to be back soon, but I fear my posts will begin to slow as we gear up to start the moving process....
You won't forget about me, right?! Okay, good.... :)
