These are for an exchange! I chose the the colors"grunge Marie".
Dusty rose, silver and black.
The pink toile paper is wallpaper my mother in law had in her entry. She love toiles and this paper was handmade! Fortunately she saved the extra paper! The tag ornaments are paperwhimsy girls that I thought might be a young "marie"! I used tim holtz acrylic tags and used golden matte medium to paste image under tag(no muss, no fuss)! the backs of the slippers are all the french toile wallpaper.
I am thinking that fairy slippers might make fun gifts for the holidays!!!
Layers of washi paper layered on a wooden bowl and then removed from bowl . Using the technique you can make a paper bowl out of any papers you wish. The papers must be toner and not inkjet, so the inks don't bleed. Seal finished bowl with acrylic varnish of your choice. (I like Delta semi-gloss) http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/2009/11/taking-trip.html

Art has become for me "therapy". I can celebrate happy occasions or work through sad or difficult times by creating art. I love creating special art for others. I often use old family pictures in my pieces and feel good about giving them birth again. I love to laugh,am very sentimental, and cry more happy tears than sad ones. Loyality, honesty, and sharing good things with others is important to me. I enjoy seeing all the new art of artists friends and am learning something new every day!
Laughing makes better wrinkles on your face!
