little feather

Little Feather

Here is sweet Little Feather, the newest one of a kind custom doll from little dear! She started out as a Littlest Pet Shop Blythe and has received a major makeover, she's now ready to start her new life as a little owl girl. Little Feather has a pretty hand painted owl style face and body. She has two tone brown needle felted hair and a ribbon headband with feathers and beads.

Little Feather

She comes with a tiny felt feather dress embellished with embroidery and beads and hand stitched owl wings that slide over her arms. Little Feather also comes with boots, a custom embroidered stand and a hand painted, keepsake tag. 

Little Feather

Little Feather would love to come join your roost!

bootcamp

My Make Art That Sells bootcamp assignment!

I'm taking Lilla Rogers Bootcamp again this year and I just finished our first assignment! I love this class, it is so inspiring and motivating.
Each assignment starts out with a mini exercise that you build on to create a final piece of art. This time it was to draw Edwardian brooches. Here's my first go at that:

I'm taking Lilla Rogers boot camp again and our first mini assignment was to draw Edwardian brooches. I was feeling rather blah about this subject until I took it in a different direction... (See next photo) #makeartthatsells #sketches

I wasn't really getting into the subject matter, but something about them reminded me of the lushness of the Lady and Unicorn tapestries, so from that, I sketched these:

For some reason those Edwardian brooches (see previous photo) reminded me of the lushness of the Lady and Unicorn tapestries so I did some more sketches inspired by both! I'm liking this direction much better, I can't wait to make something from these...

which became drawings for my final project, to design a journal cover. This was kind of a challenging              assignment but I think I like how it turned out. I also did some heavy Photoshop work to create that fancy pen to go with it! I had fun with that, I haven't done any super Photoshopping in awhile. :)

On Monday the class gallery will be posted, my favorite part! I can't wait to see what everyone else has done.
