In the meantime, here is a quick fall project I worked on today. These craft store pumpkins got painted with white gesso. I've been trying out gesso after seeing all the amazing projects Rosemary creates with it on her blog.
|hydrangeas in transition, too...|
After gesso-ing the pumpkins, I 'painted' glue in the top creases with a toothpick and sprinkled with clear glitter.
Here is a before pic of the pumpkin from the craft store. It was a bit too cream-colored and smooth for me:
Some lingering touches of summer still brighten the day...
I've also been busy designing and creating some handmade goods for my soon-to-open Etsy store! I'll be focusing on what I love to work with - fabrics. Inspiration surrounds me...
The pretty and the rustic combined...
Of course I'll share the store news with you as soon as it opens, which will hopefully be next month.
Until then, enjoy this transitional time full of opportunities!
