Stool Art!

Although it's not wall art I'm going with Stool Art! I needed a pop of color so I pulled out the fabric paints and got busy. 


I decided on canvas to give the stool some durability. Using earth tone Seta Color fabric paints I swirled and splattered the paint.


I sprinkled some salt across the surface at the end to see if I could get a little movement going. 


It was such a quick and fun project my goal is to create multiple covers to change out for holidays and special occasions!

The Studio is Taking Shape and Creativity is Taking Over!

Our new community and my new inspiration!
I felt like my wings had been clipped with no creative outlet over the past few months! We moved our household 2,000 miles west, got the elderly cat settled, met the neighbors (they are lovely!), unpacked and got our living space set up. Next up... a sneaky respiratory bug that I am just about to shake! When I put my head up and take a deep breath I feel good about the progress and can't keep a smile off my face when I see those beautiful Rocky Mountains. 


I have temporary studio space set up that is the beginning of something grand! My ultimate goal is to have separate wet and dry work spaces so I can splish-splash with my dyeing and still have a clean designated space for inventory, designing and sewing. The builder quotes are coming in and I look forward to a full working studio in a few months! 

Happy 2017!
