New Blocks

I'm not sure why, but I love working with these wood blocks. So I have decided to change them up a little bit. I have added a topper to these blocks with a few ribbons attached, plus they are alittle larger than the blocks that I normally work with. I like the whimsical look that these blocks have. This block is simply a little fairy who believes.
The next block is of sweet childhood memories. This last block is so much fun, one side is a child day dreaming, the other side is a sweet little teddy bear in flight, daring to dream to fly.This block also has a metal charm attached to the top that states dream. Let your dreams take you where you want to be. Dare to dream! Hope you all have a great weekend. Hugs***Renea

Up-coming Workshop

If this precious face doesn't make you smile well then nothing will. This is Miss K, my 6 and 1/2 month old Granddaughter. She is such a good baby. August 15, 2009 I will be teaching a workshop at the Altered Muse in Ft. Worth. At the workshop we will complete a collage coated with beeswax. I love beeswax, it makes such a great shiney soft finish to any collage. This will be a fun class so I hope to see you there! If you would like to attend please call Pam from the Altered Muse @ 817-319-0112. Everything you need to complete the collage will be supplied, however if you want to bring your own papers, copied photos or other collage supplies that would be okay. Hope to see you there.

The photos below are of wood pieces with hardware attached. I have also coated these 2 pieces with beeswax. Each piece has been made to appear old, distressed and vintage.
The block below is angels.I will be listing these new pieces in my etsy shop and my funky finds shop. I hope you are having a great weekend. Hugs***Renea

Happy 4th of JULY & new art work

Hope you all are having a great 4th of JULY! We don't have any major plans, going to watch fireworks over the lake tonight. I think we will be able to see them from our house, as we live only 1 mile from the lake. Posting this beautiful photo of our great American Flag, I'm proud to be an American. This little island is in a pond in Keene, Tx.

I have painted a new canvas with a sweet girl singing her praises to God. I tried several different techniques in this canvas, I was very pleased with the end result.The canvas below is one I'm very happy with. It is done with beeswax. It has a soft glow to it that I just love. And the beeswax made the house smell so good.

I did this old suitcase sometime ago but I don't think that I ever posted it. So here it is! This is an old samsonite travel case. I painted "Lucy" on the front and a flower garden on the back. I love this little suitcase. It will soon be for sale in a little shop in Granbury Tx, called The Bella Rosa on highway 377.
And this last little piece is still in progress. I have a few more things I want to do to this piece before it is finished. This is a chunk of wood that measures about 5"x4"x2". I want to add some hardware to this chunk of wood. Plus I may apply beeswax to this piece too.

I hope you have a great weekend and a Happy 4th Celebration. Hugs to you all***Renea
