I've been busy, I've been thinking about what to say about this art I've been learning. All there is to say is that I love it. I need more tools. I am tres excited to share my new endeavor with you.
I hope you enjoy them too. The hydrangiea design is what really kicked me into high gear about leather. I was feeling good about my beginner skill, but blocked on what to do with it. And then I thought back to my first real leather inspiration, this woman is amazing. Please do check her out.
But I thought about what it was that kept me coming back to her site, her art, and it was the individuality, and how she welcomes her local world into what she does. So I did too. The hydrangias in the back yard were in full, bluest blue bloom, and I took some into the house. And then I made two, incase I messed one up when I stained and painted them. But I'm happy with both.
The cuff with one painted blossom is mine, and I've been wearing the heck out of it. But the other is up for grabs, please contact me if you'd like to have it come home to you! The rest are up for grabs too! (and need good homes)
The daisies aren't quite done, but will be today!
love you all.
