Imagine. Create. Enjoy.
Hello beautiful souls,
It's that time of year when everyone is making their handmade gifts. I am really excited about the little mixed-media jewelry shelf I created for Christian. As pretty as piles of jewelry are on your night stand it's nice to hang them up on a pretty little holder. You can also use this holder for keys and other trinkets.
I started out with a scrap piece of wood. I gesso'ed the base and painted it with watercolors.
Next I added some clear glittery embossing powder to create a little depth and sparkle. I finished off the design with a Metatron's Cube. I used some modeling paste, fluid acrylics, and metallic inks to give it a spacey metal feel. Next I used a dremel to pre-drill some some holes in the bottom of the shelf for my hooks, and then screwed them into the base. Voila! Instant wall art and jewelry shelf!
Being a bead making and jewelry designer it's exciting to make a mixed-media piece to tie all of the art together!
Love, light, and creativity,
