Rococo Cinderella WIP #4

It’s really coming along very very slowly. I wish I could do more but between being very busy with a toddler and debilitating migraines it seems like there is never enough time. I hope to finish this by mid July. This means Little Red will be started then and it’ll be a very close finish by September to submit pieces to the County Fair.

Dreams & Rococo Cinderella WIP #3

Rococo Cinderella WIP #3

Rococo Cinderella is underway. I hope to get the lettering done soon then the pink flowery embroidery on the right side of the over dress. After those two are done, I’ll start the beading and I have wonderful ideas on how I’ll make the center of the blue underdress sparkle.

As I continue working on Rococo Cinderella and plan out future projects, I wonder to myself where my love of embroidery/beading will take me. A long time dream of mine is to host a gallery exhibition of my art work. I really want this to happen. However before I get ahead of myself, I need a large catalogue of work to make it happen.

Here is a short list of future projects:

  1. Rococo Cinderella (underway)
  2. Little Red
  3. 12 Dancing Princesses
  4. Sleeping Beauty
  5. Snow White
  6. Beauty and the Beast
  7. Allerleirauh
  8. East of the Sun West of the Moon

Everything after 12 Dancing Princesses will be up in the air project wise. I may change the order or I may not. I may also add more. I want to have at least 15 to 20 ¬†pieces of work before I even start the gallery option. Once I’m finished with a large/beautiful catalogue, then I can explore my options of approaching a gallery with my work or renting a venue myself. The promotional materials will need to be made (posters, postcards, business cards). I’ll need to revamp this site by adding a large gallery section. I also will include inquiries on artwork if anyone wants to buy anything online. A Facebook fan page might also be in order. This is so far into the future I can’t even wrap my head around this yet.

My primary goal is to continue to produce embroidery art and to get better and continue to enter into the County Fair to get some name recognition around here. This is my first priority. Everything else comes afterwards.

It’s finally finished! I can’t believe how much I enjoyed beading. I definitely will integrate more beading into future projects. I had a ton of fun on this one.

I haven’t decided yet whether I should put it up for sale on Etsy. If so, how much would you price it at?

I am now fully into beading. It’s really relaxing and the piece is turning out well. I hope I can get this finished by next week.

Little Mermaid WIP #2

I have gone back on this project. I hope to add beading to the waves. I hope I can get it done soon so I can return to Rococo Cinderella afterwards. This may be up for sale in my Etsy store in the future.

Fairy Tale Yarn Wreath

Fairy Tale Yarn Wreath Detail

The theme for my daughter’s room is fairy tales. This is a yarn wreath I’ve made for her. It has an apple, a glass slipper, and a magic mirror. Project is done and will be hanging in Natalie’s room once Robert puts the special hook up.

Back to embroidery and experiments tonight!

Fairytale Illustration Project: Little Mermaid

June 10th, 2011 § 1 comment § permalink

FTIP #1: The Little Mermaid

This is a piece I posted a long time but it is the first entry in my Fairytale Illustration Project. This is meant to complement my embroidery. I have a Little Mermaid piece underway which I’ll need to work on soon. I have a small black portfolio which will contain all the art. I love that I can just flip through the pages once it’s done. Every artwork will be 5″ x 7.”

I started a painting but it turned into a complete fail because I used too many mediums. Ah well. I now learned that I will be doing all future works using coloured cardstock for the background. They will all have this in common and perhaps I can see my style/work evolving when I’m finally done filling the pages.

For my first custom Trikky, I’m rather proud of him. I’m planning the second one already but I’ll be going back to embroidery and starting/finishing a fairytale wreath before I get back into Trikky work.

On learning new things…

June 7th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Sweet Dreams @ Anime North

I enjoy learning new things. I’ve tried paper quilling, needle-felting, and a bunch of other hobbies that never really stuck. I enjoy the learning process and seeing if it’s something I actually want to do. Most often that not, I end up spending around $50 to learn something I end up not liking. Very few things actually stick. Of the most recent undertakings, embroidery is one. I also found out through customizing my Trikky that it may be something I’d want to do occasionally in the future because of the enjoyment and the result. I’m really concerned about results when it comes to trying anything new. I know it’s not that logical since when most people try something new, they rarely get wonderful results. I’m impatient, demanding, and a whole lot of illogical when it comes to the process.

Only embroidery and the recent Trikky custom came out with results I’m really pleased with. Therefore these two relatively “new” ventures become a part of my short list of hobbies. I’ve started embroidery this January and have loved the results from it. As for the Trikky, my first try and I’ve thoroughly adored the process and the amazing results.

I made a really short list of things I want to try for the relatively near future:

  1. Doll-sized Plushies¬†– I tried needle-felting and it didn’t do what I wanted it to do. I think sewing proper softies/plushies are next on my list. I want to make mini dolls for all my dolls in all kinds of animals/characters, etc.
  2. Doll-sized Furniture – I’ve always liked Victorian style furniture and I can’t find any decent doll-sized ones for the price I want to pay. I bought a miniature furniture making book and I hope to learn from that. This is far into the future. I can’t even get started on this until the basement is finished and I reclaim my studio. Yes, imagine Rosey with power tools.
  3. Pottery – I took pottery classes in high school and I remembered loving them. I hope to take this up again one day. This is a pipe dream.

All of this is speculation at the moment. I’m always up to learning anything and item number one is the most likely to happen sometime this year. I’m always on the lookout to try/learn something new. I try a ton of things and most of them don’t stick. If it does stick, I tend to keep going back to it and continue to add it to my giant projects pile.
