I’ve been exploring new Ideas for products to sell on my craft stall and in my Etsy shop. I’ve come up with a way of using the textiles that I love, hand printed and recycled, in a very creative way, collectors dolls 🙂
Meet Clarissa and Morwena.Morwena is now available to buy for £18.00 and soon will be listed in my Etsy shop!
First I must wish you all a very happy New Year. The holidays have been quite a restful time for us so that we are fresh and ready for work. So here I am ready to have a wonderfully creative 2017 🙂
I now can show you my lampshade commission as it is safely with it’s new owner. Commissions are always a challenge and this was for a very avid Harry Potter Fan and I had to avoid copyright issues.
Here’s the finished item.Now for the process!
This is the lampshade ready to be up-cycled. First I stained it with watered down fabric paint to match the paper I was going to use. I did think of using fabric for the covering but had the cutting out of letters to contend with so decided paper was best. It took a lot of thinking about but I am pleased with the final out come 🙂
I recently up-cycled this lampshade for our living room and shared with my friends and followers on Facebook.It has resulted in me getting a commission for a Lampshade of a specified design which I realised just in time that I’d better not say any more in case they read this post!!! 😛
I started a new project recently as I’ve been having a constant battle in how to display some of my work at my makers markets. I have been making stands and generally trying to improve the presentation of my stall. Ultimately to try and improve sales!
I’ve had some apple trays for a while, knowing they would come in useful sometime and now they have! I saw something when I was out the other day and just motivated me to see what I could do.
I estimated what other bits of wood I might need which only cost about £10 and I got on with it. Measuring, sawing and painting:-) Yes I’m impressed too!I’ll take a photo of my stall on Saturday to show the stands all finished 🙂
