So, what does one do when she has extremely limited internet access? Hmmm, let's see. I read, I pumped up my walking regime, and am walking up to 3 miles at least 3 times a week. The other days, I am doing close to two miles.
I also completed a bunch of small internet swaps and then I even busted out some canvases that I have been hording for years and got busy painting! OMG, it was so much fun, that I even got a "non-crafty" girlfriend hooked! Haha. One victim at a time, and I have done my job!
Here are some of my creations.
This piece is ready to be cut up and made into a purse!
This is a work in process. I still need to add a few more layers and some gold leafing. (did I mention my love for gold leafing? It is becoming a serious contender to my love of glitter)
This one is ready for a final layer of gold leafing.
Little Frida needs some touch up, and then this will become a clutch. (that is why she is upside down)
These are already made into handbags and will soon be on my etsy store.
I lined her up too.
I love read, orange and greens!
I am also making coin purses and ipod/phone holders.
I currently working on about 5 other canvases and some of them will have a Day of The Dead theme, as well as some iconic imagery.
Stay tuned because my next couple of blogs will feature more information regarding my two classes coming up in a few weeks. (reservation info on the right of my blog)
I will also be hosting a giveaway featuring a huge swag bag from the Crafty Chica Cruise 09 Cruise, as well as the details on next year's cruise!
