It's been quite a few days since I've posted but I've been busy creating and earning a living which isn't necessarily different. Being a calligrapher is hard work and tiring (which a lot of people don't know) but I do manage to take my breaks and go from one area of my dining room, where I currently set up my studio, to another. I'm not talking about a big room here as the three tables which I work on are just steps from each other and one of them I eat on. But anyway, I'm having fun doing what I love to do. I am a very grateful artist. I purchased these small 3" wooden hearts at Michael's awhile back not knowing what I was going to do with them. I just started to play around with all my "stuff" and came up with an ornament/thank you piece that can be added to a gift package or can be the gift. It has a little tag left blank to personalize and on the heart it says "From the bottom of my Heart". I used one of my favorite antique buttons and added fiber and a tassel. I think it turned out rather well.
I've also been creating these small shadowbox pieces that are similar to "Romantic". They are 5 1/2" square frames, one letter and an inspirational word/thought I created a one of a kind keepsake. I selected "stuff" from my usual stash of ephemera and put together "Harmony" which is one of three so far. All that I am creating now have been added to my Etsy shop. I will continue creating the series until I run out of frames, hearts, "stuff" :) or have moved on to something new.
I'm so grateful to be able to share my art with others. I'm mixed media and love doing lots of different mediums. My main stay is calligraphy of course and most of my art has words in them, hence "The Word is ART". Hope you like what you see and come back often.
Have a blessed day. Renee
