Terrarium

I noticed that this little guy was shown in one of my earlier posts, but I hadn’t shared him with y’all yet. So here you go!

This is Terrarium that I made not too long ago. It is made with eco-Felt, wool felt balls, embroidery thread, ribbon, cotton gingham, and some acrylic paint. The jar is a recycled/up-cycled jar with tiny handles on the sides. It’s a really lovely piece that is actually for sale at the Handmade Galleries in LA.  This is one of my favorite terrariums to date. It’s nice and big and is quite lovely. Each flower (felt ball) is hand embroidered with painstaking detail and is nestled amongst leaves of grass. There are three unique flowers inside the terrarium as well as one small flower on the outside of the terrarium (on the bow). Green grass is even painted on the bottom of the jar to give it even more dimension.

I hope you like this piece as much as I do.

NEW! Fish Painting

One fish, too-cool fish! This piece may be my new favorite!

I am absolutely in love with painting on wood! I’m really, really happy with how this piece came out. It’s a little hard to tell in the photographs, but the bronze color on the fish is actually metallic, so it looks like real fish scales. In addition, he has a bit of a glittery shine to some of his white scales.

I hope that you like this piece as much as I do!

Robot Painting

This post’s feature: Yet another painting on wood!

This piece was the first one that I started (of the paintings on wood), but I did not finish it right away. I always find it best to work on a few projects at once…

This is a painting on heavier/thicker wood than the Lovebirds Painting.

If you didn’t notice…he’s a cowboy robot. He even has a revolver, sheriff’s badge, and spurs. He’s a pretty cool guy. I am really quite pleased with how this piece came out. I think that the bright colors of the robot and his boxiness pair very well with the organic shapes and warmth of the wood.
