Art Commission FINISHED! :)

Whew! Finally finished my 8 shrine commission and sent it off. It was hard at the end (of course) The very last shrine was a stumper for me but…they are in the mail! I will be offering this as a service in my Shop from now on. I can create a shrine for just about anything…something you LOVE, a loved one, family member, pet …ANYTHING!

Here are examples from ONE project. They are all slightly similar because they are for one person. I was given access to some photos in her online album, sent some sewing notions and trims and a few details about likes and dislikes…this is what I came up with… comments welcomed!

A Commission!

Soooooo the fairy came back! But not in the normal manner…I was commissioned to make a set of shrines in honor of someones grandmother who had passed away. Eight to be exact. Eight shrines. That’s a lot. Especially since most, maybe all of my shrines include no less than 44 colors of glitter and rhinestones! I was completely taken aback by this request but I still said yes. And whaddya know. I’m damn good at it. I’ve already nailed down the ideas, bought supplies and arranged the pieces for 6 of the 8 shrines! Assembling them is the easy part but coming up with the ideas…that’s USUALLY another story. This time I’m shrining like the wind. Pictures to come real soon. Wish me luck!
p.s. I’m going to be offering this as a service for sale in my shop after I have these done with all the finished photos for examples. Exciting!



All but one large shrine are finished. This project was much more interesting than I thought! I will post pics here in a few days when they are all finished. Whew!


Annnnd Then she’s gone…

No Fairy. She’s gone. She left yesterday sometime and I can’t make anything without her. 😦
