DIY, Halloween

I’ve got my EYE on you

Eyeball Wreath

The EYES have it!

Halloween is my favorite time of year. I love the changing seasons, and the chance to decorate my house with spiders and pumpkins is always a HUGE plus. This year I channeled my inner Martha Stuart and made some fun decorations!

Eyeball Wreath

Keep your EYES peeled.

This Eyeball Wreath was made from scratch by yours truly. It has is a wired chenille-like material for the base and is adorned with glittery eyeballs, glittery black and orange balls, and a glittery spider. I want to leave this Beauty up year ’round. (We’ll see what the boyfriend says about that…)

In the meanwhile, I will be working on making some new wreaths. I have some ideas in mind for some non-traditional holiday wreaths too. Perhaps even some wreaths that would actually look good on your door year ’round. Stay tuned!

Artwork, New Artwork, Painting, Typography

A Record-Breaking NEW Project!

An ornate hand-painted letter “A”

Well, I’m not actually breaking records, I’m painting on them… As you all know, I love typography and I have an interest in traditional sign painting.

Vinyl Love: Record Artwork "A"
A close up.

This is my newest project: An ornate hand-painted capital “A” on an old record.  I painted this last night using acrylic inks on a record that was primed with a matte black spray-paint (the paints don’t adhere well to the vinyl alone). I love it when bright colors come together well on a black background, and I feel I pulled it off here. I can see myself making many, many more of these…
