What I Have Been Working On!

I wanted to share with you all today the entries I painted for the Old Farmhouse Gathering Holiday Celebration.! First I did a skate ornament that is a Renee Mullins design. These ornies are such a great size that if you have a really large tree they look awesome! I have also take these and hung them from evergreen pine swags, and hung them on my front door.....cute way to welcome winter and guests.

This is an ornament that I did do last year, but I just love it so I did him again this year. These work so nice as additions to garlands along the fireplace, and as super nice size gift tags. The back is blank so you add anything you would like. This is a design based on one from Kim Christmas.

I just adore Katrina Roncin....she is one talented primitive artist, and designer. I found this paddle at a yard sale, and painted it a deep Rookwood Red, and then added this adorable snowman. This paddle is a great size measuring 17" tall. I then added mica flakes to the bottom at the snow line to give is some extra texture and sparkle. Love the way he turned out.

Last but not least was my favorite entry. This is a 5 hole reproduction candle mold. I only had one of these left and so I chose to do another Renee Mullins design on it for Christmas use as well as Winter. This piece is very versatile since I left the sides and back blank so that after the season is over, it could be turned around and used all winter long, and only you would know it had snowmen on it.....:)

Well I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek at what I have been up to! I hope to bring you many more items in the weeks to come. Need to get back to the studio, so with that I wish you all a very blessed and wonderful week! Till the next time............
