Along side the 52 canvases Vero asked me to create some functional art pieces for the pedestals in the center of the room. I struggle sometimes with this kind of stuff. Kind of like handmade ornaments. I just can't think of what to do! But for some reason a giant light bulb popped into my head about a month ago. After one costly trip to Joann's fabrics...a frantic search for reasonably priced sketchbooks, I've about got the functional art pieces ready to sell!
First up.....art supply jelly rolls. Yeah...how functional is that? I've always wanted one for my own brushes. So this little item was truly made with puffy hearts.
Last item to be finished up are the sketchbook covers. They are turning out so good...but have a little more stitching before I can show them off.
Anyhoo....this about wraps up the creative journey. 2 more canvases to go. Wow.
