I took down the Art Space Exhibit last week and now I have a new problem. Our house is already full of lots of framed paintings and artwork and I have to figure out where to put 28 more framed pieces! I think I am going to make a gallery in the stairwell going down to my craft space on the lower level. Of course, I'll need to paint the walls first which is a little tricky in a stairwell.
Things have been so busy here that I haven't even had a chance to take out the pieces and do new photographs. After the "Weekend with Tim" I'll have to get to work on that... In the meanwhile, I do have a few photos to share of some lacy medallions I designed. These are all cut in the same glitter paper I used for the ultra thin pieces I shared last week (click HERE to go to that post). As usual, one thing leads to another!
This medallion is only 3 1/2 inches in diameter. I like to make tiny designs but I had to work large for the exhibit to make items that would fill the walls. Now I can try turning these files into more cobweb laces by shrinking them and thinning the lines as much as possible.
The third piece in this set has both a loopy outer design in silver and a more spiky inner design in gold. The frames for these pieces were inexpensive ones from Costco that came in a set. I spray painted the frames with gold paint and mounted the cuts on textured watercolor paper.
The three pieces shared a section of the wall next to the elevator. The lights in the space made the glitter paper sparkle nicely (but also made a lot of glare on the glass).
Our younger son has managed to find a full time "real" job and an apartment in the last week so we will soon be true empty-nesters again. The next couple weeks will involve lots of planning and reorganizing of furnishings as he prepares to move into the new place.
I hope to find a few free moments to get the simple page scrapbook challenge set up. I expect to post it by the end of the week.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
