Drippings : Whimsical Nursery Painting

0

Now that our friends have seen the nursery painting they commissioned me to do for their baby girl Paige, I can share it here with all of my Freaky Fanatics.

The painting itself is a mix of what the Mommy-To-Be was looking for mixed with inspiration from the nursery bedding and a bit of my own whimsical magic. I added various shades of glitter accents throughout that make it sparkle like a fairy blessed it. Hard to photograph how fun it glistens but here are some shots after I completed it a few weeks ago..

I am really looking forward to seeing how it looks hanging in Paige’s nursery and will definitely post photos of how it all blends with the look they are going for once I get photos. Until then go take a little visit to my portfolio website and check out the Drippings page to see more things I have painted over the years.

Shop Small This Holiday Season!

I never turn down an opportunity to take a photo with a dragon, so we made it a point to hit up my business partner Closet Collectibles in Crete Illinois this weekend to get some small business gift shopping done and meet their new firey mascot!

Anyone that knows me, knows how badly I wanted to adopt him! Unfortunately he is not for sale so we will have to keep visiting him. Which won’t be very hard as we love this store, the people who run it and they support my art to the fullest!

Speaking of… I also made sure to check out my art display to make sure it is fully stocked for all you holiday shoppers! So don’t forget to stop in, shop local and tell ’em Living Dead Girl Nicole sent ya!

Remains : Daria “I Hate It” Bookmark

0

So now that the surprise is over I can finally share another art project I have been working on. This is a handmade bookmark I contributed to the group gift for my dear friends Heather’s 40th Birthday….

Heather loves to read and she was totally bummed about having to cancel her milestone Birthday party (due to COVID), so her husband Mike reached our to her friends and family asking if we would each make her a special bookmark.

Since she is the Daria Morgendorffer to my Jane Lane I knew right away where I was headed theme wise. Especially since one of the things Heather and Daria have in common is their love of books and reading. Plus who better than her Jane to paint it!

My husband Frank took me to the hobby store to find the right wood. He cut it out and sanded it. I painted, clear coated and added the tassel. Mike collected them all and presented them all to her in a book he made with special pages made for each of them. We may not have been able to physically celebrate with her this year but Mike found a fun and creative way to make it happen! Major hubby points for sure and this was so much fun to make and be a part of!

Dig this? Make sure to check out this bookmark and other misc. creations on the Remains page of my portfolio website!
