'Hello tiny dancer.... come teach me to sway,
to sing and dance together we can play.
We'll prance and twirl, who cares what people say!
If anyone is bothered - in the studio we'll stay.'
I have a little friend as you can see.... I wanted the window to make me feel as if I were at some little European theatre. And since I am always jamming and dancing up there......
I cut out an image of a dancer that I had enlarged.... just some royalty free clip art from the web..... Then hung it on the inside of the sheer curtain I got at the thrift for a buck..... now the family knows if she is dancing in the window I am in the studio! I love silhouettes! I think I may be using more in upcoming projects!
Well.... I bet you are wondering what all these neat little books are huh?
They are a small vintage magazine called the Workbasket... recipes, knitting, crochet, domesticity, etc.
I have been collecting them and other old books and magazines for a long while now. I had some, then my wonderful grandma sent me a whole bunch! I also, every now and then, would see one and snatch it up. I am thinking of using them in a collage... you see I love them soooooo, but feel sad that they are continually neglected... I will not paint over them, they will be seen as they are. I am excited, I will finally have them around to inspire me every day. It will also give me a chance to look into my favorites and maybe be inspired to use some of the patterns or other ideas in them.
Love you all! XOXOX
P.S. I am going to try and step up my artful blogging... I am getting close to being finished with the studio, but I am getting a little burnt out. So I will try to do some art as a break in between the overhauling!
P.S.S. I also wanted to say thank you to the inspiration helpers... I love and miss you guys soooo much. xxooXXOO
P.S.S.S. Yes, mom, I am feeling a better... just trying to push through this cold, I have to much to do to be sick!
