Creative Actions!


 It has seemed for awhile now, that if there is any possibility of turmoil in my life, there will be. I really try to look at the good and stay positive, but sometimes things are just so hard, that the good eludes me and leaves me sad and depressed. So in these times of stormy seas, I try to create to keep myself from drowning.
 I am working on an order for Emporium of impossible things. I am really pleased with the results of the pieces I am putting together so far, but it doesn't seem to be going quite as quickly as I would like. I have so much going on it's hard to keep my head above water.
 I have been dabbling in paints on canvas for a couple months now. I find it relaxing. I am really just a beginner but I've made a few fun pieces that I am sharing in this post. The one above was really my first. It has a lot of texture which I love.
 I have been working on the odd piece of furniture as well. I am hoping to sell some of these soon. I love how this little desk turned out. I even found some mercury glass knobs to accent it. I will post my other pieces of furniture when they are done. I am working on two chairs and two side tables. I just wish I had more time.
These are a trio of small canvases that I thought would be fun. I colour blended paint in the background and added stenciled baroque fleur de lis with spackle on the top. I want to try this in blue as well. I have some other ideas I want to try and I have about 3 more canvases on the go.
 This is a much larger canvas and I blended the paint to look somewhat like the water in a Monet painting. It's just relaxing. I'm debating on trying to sell it and hanging it on my wall.
 I am finishing this post with these earrings that I am totally in love with. I know I need to sell them but I really just want to keep them for myself. lol! If you are looking to purchase any of my designs, contact me on Facebook, I no longer have a website or Etsy shops. I don't currently have the money to restart my website, but I hope to in the future.

If I had made these earrings I'd want to keep them too! what is this stone? Jasper, maybe?

Thanks Paula. Some people call this stone Jasper or Sea Sediment Jasper but the true name is Variscite. I love all the dyed colours of these stones. So beautiful
