After I sold my (whopping) ONE piece of collage, my Etsy store looked empty and sad (it's a 25% decrease when you go from 4 pieces to 3, ya know?)
So, fueled by the energy from my first sale, I whipped up a few new pieces these past few days so I can restock my empty shelves.
These first couple ones are a continuation of the "Falling Hydrangea" theme. There's a midget version (6" x 8") version of the larger pink/expresso color one that sold (6" x 12"), and a variation in a soothing turquoise/green tea color (in both sizes).
I just LOVE that knubby turquoise silk fabric! It really contrast those smooth, smooth hand-dyed silk ribbons (in green tea and that stormy blue) on the piece. Can't stop touching and feeling them... Hmm...
In this piece below (Angel), I was inspired by a fellow Etsian Heather's new Act of Kindness initiative. You have to read about her act of kindness, Project Lemon. It's one of the most original and creative and whackiest act of kindness I've seen!
Honestly, I can't come up with anything remotely as clever or creative as this act. So I did what I know :) I created a piece that helps you celebrate the angel in your life.
The piece is painted in acrylic in gradation, from the muddy black in the bottom (that deep, dark place you're stuck in) to the glorious fluffy white at the top (where your angel lift you up to).
The specks of gold throughout represents the light your angel shed on you to remind you of the goodness in this world.
Like a good bowl of piping hot ramen on a freezing day.
