After a hot shower and a movie with William (We watched Oblivion which totally sucked. I was like what? What was that about again? Don't waste your rental mola.) I headed on down to the studio for some art making. I took an online class with Claudine Hellmuth this past month. It was a month of techniques....a lot a techniques I have to add. One stood out to me and so I trotted off to buy the supplies for it last Monday. I mean what the heck....it's not like I don't have enough art supplies in my studio right? It was called faux leather I think. Using sticky back canvas and embossing powder. And although I enjoyed the technique and it pushed my thinking, the stencils were a pain, expensive and limiting. I made a bunch, which I'll sell. But I kept thinking there has to be a better way......
So my wheels started spinning and I thought, can I use embossing powder on leather? Why yes Jenni, you can. And so this happened:
And then these happened.
And now I am kicking myself for the binge clean out where I got rid of all but these 8 leather cuffs.
I never got back into the studio to finish adding the metal stampings to the embossed cuffs. Next weekend I hope to get back. Mostly after the few hours in the studio I laid around the house. Sunday was church and more laying around. William and I Sunday rented another movie in which both of us fell asleep during. Hilarious right? Billy and Mailey just piddled all day while we snoozed. William actually slept I think about 5 hours. Football is kicking his booty. Mine too obviously. Haha...actually I'm pretty sure my napping was due to the 2nd week of school exhaustion and my running schedule.
So....big week ahead. Open House for me and the kids, Football Jamboree and more. Oh and after school art classes start back this week too. Pretty sure I won't be back here until next week. So have an awesome creative week!
