Painted Pottery, Handcarved stamps, and Paintings oh my!!

Sorry channeling my inner Dorothy there did I mention that I am going to wear ruby slippers to my wedding??!!

Anyways, here are some painted ceramic coasters that have not been fired yet, so they will look drastically different when they are. I am continuing with the tattoo series a bit.

Here is a painted canister that my mom specifically requested. She wants a set of famous art pieces on canisters and dishes! Can you guess which one this is?? ** Molly you can't guess because you should know already!!** This one also isnt fired yet. I'll be sure to posrt after they come out of the kiln.

Also I have rediscovered my love for print making in the form of and carving stamps!! I got the Idea from to glue them on wood blocks to mae them easier and less messy

I also bought these cute mini letter stamps at Micheals crafts the other day for $1 each!! Isn't that cool I am really obssessed with stamps lately...if only I could thing of something to stamp them on!! lol

Also here is an update on the painting I was working on. I think it is almost finished but not quite. It is in thet stage where it needs something else but I am scared to mess it up by working it to much ya know?

Also good news ART PARTY TONIGHT!! and the watching of Project Runway double YAY!! I couldent' remember if I showed this to yall it was made by my bff Molly of It is a necklace/ small painting/ decoration for my lamp for the time being!! Thanks Molly!!

New Painting for Mrs. Kiser

It is really weird that in a year and a half MY name will be Ms. Kiser!! but anyways this is a painting that I made for my future mother in law!!

What do yall think about the orange in the mix with the white?? It was somewhat of an accident. I didnt realize that the red would bleed through the white no matter how many coats I put on it, and get darker as the white dries. But I kind of like it

Finally Granny Square Number 10...or is it 11??

Granny # 10 or 11

this one is really cute don't you think?? It took a while to finish longer than others and was a little complicated when it got the the last two rounds, but over all pretty good

I have been creating up a storm!!! I have a painting in the works...finished another, 2 ceramic pet bowls, a new japanese print book, and a new addition to the tattoo ceramics!! Lucky for yall I have been documenting with pictures!! Expect many posts in the days to is a sneak peak at a new painting

3 reasons why I haven't posted granny # 10

Reason # 1

granny number 10 is ridiculous and not a true grann square, it does not crochet around the edges but diagonally...and it is not cute and hard!! So I have expelled it from the count down and I am working on # 11

Reason #2

my fiance and I made a frivilous purchase....we bought a Wii and it is really fun!!

Reason #3

I was making this!! for my new sister in law to be!!

it is 16 x 20 acrylic on canvas,
it is called "All in the Family"
the pics turned out a little darker than it is in person, it is also coated with many THICK layers or varnish
What do yall think?

Granny Square # 5

well I worked on some squares during my trip and I started with this one!! It is a daffodil!! and very cute I may add!!

Granny #6

Granny #7

I absolutely love this one, It was a Christmas wreath pattern and I just changed the colors it turned out so cute. The wreath poofs up for added dimension

Granny Number 4

this one was a tricky little booger, I had to do the flower three times until I understood the patter, the flower puffs out a bit and that made it tricky, but all in all I like the finished product it looks very neat and precise to me!!
