A Warm Welcome

Well, Hello there!

I find myself with another new piece of art to share and debating whether to post it now....or save it for a dry spell.......
WHAT?!
Me, delay gratification?!  Me, not go to a party when I have a good reason to attend?! (Paint Party Friday, that is ;P)  Me, wait?!

Heck no! Especially since PPF is celebrating a whole year of creative partying!!
This'll make 3 posts in 1 week....almost unheard of around here!

So here is another reclaimed book cover 8.5 inches square....gessoed and painted over.


I cut out the cup shapes from patterned paper, used lace trim and vintage buttons on the bottom edge and crackled the tabletop.


I just love crackled anything!

Acylics, prismacolor pencils and ink make up the bulk of supplies used here.

I think this would make such a sweet Housewarming gift :)
It is waiting in my shop, if you know a good home for it.

Well, thank you for stopping by!  I hope you know you are always welcome :)
And please check out the other Paint Party Friday entries for this week!

Wonderful weekends to you all!
Cam

Anna said...

thank you for stopping by and leaving a nice comment. I sat and read your blog for quite awhile. Being an artist and mother, still trying to figure out how to "do that". Its easier now that I only have one little one at home..... and 20 something years of practice! Love this altered book and the adorable Bed bugs picture you painted for a friends nursery. Happy PPF- even tho it is Monday!! wink!

WrightStuff said...

I'm just enjoying a coffee now :)

I'm all behind on my PPF visits but better late than not at all.

Thank you for letting me post about your art - I wrote a quick little something on my blog about you today :)
