It’s been a very stressful couple of weeks, been working really hard and learning A LOT! Thus my delays in blogging… To somewhat relax (well attempted to relax, but didn’t work so well x.x), I worked on a couple art things with Independence Day coming up soon.
The beaded animal part I’m pretty much finished with and have them listed on my etsy site (which I reopened). The book part I’m still working on, but anticipating to be done by July 1st 🙂
I hope everyone had a great week last week, and has a wonderful week this week!
Goodnight and sweet dreams! ❤
Going to be very busy for the month of June (well, for the next year actually) however, I will just mention for this weekend right now!
I will be at the Omaha Summer Arts Festival on June 10th, 2017 for the Omaha Arts Council. We will be handing out flyers and having a Come Paint With US! event near Cupcake Omaha. The Paint with us event will be from June 9 – 11th all day. For more info you can check out www.omahaartscouncil.org
Also on the list to do:
- I will be working on my next eBook for the Ashley’s Diary series 🙂 (The first being – Dear Diary: Today I woke up a werewolf). I will have it completed by June 30th and have it up on Amazon by July 1st ^.^
- I’ll be making Red, White, and Blue themed beaded animals and tissue paper flowers to sell in the old market this weekend (near the Come Paint With Us! event). The beaded animals will also be available on my square store for those not in the Omaha-Metro area 🙂 (I don’t put the flowers on there due to their fragile nature when shipping)
So yeah, that sums up most of it! (For this weekend anyway lol)
Have a great weekend! Hope to see you out at the Festival!
Chimera next to quarter
One of my other patterns I made up while in Washington ^.^
The chimera in mythology generally has three heads: Dragon, Lion, and Goat – with a lion’s body and either a snakes tail or a scorpion tail. My version has a snake tail, which fits well with the end of the wire because I made a tongue out of it 🙂 Also the snake tail seems to keep the front from being too top heavy (which I found to be a little bit of an issue with Cerberus – he’s top heavy). I set a quarter next to the finished prototype to show how small the seed beads are I work with. The chimera is barely twice as big as the quarter! LOL I might make my next Chimera with a scorpion tail just to see how it comes out, which it might look similar to the manticore except with three heads.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Have A Goodnight ❤ And thank you for reading 🙂
Cerberus Front View
Cerberus Side View
Cerberus Back View
A warm welcome to Cerberus, the newest addition to the fantasy beaded animals! He may be tiny, but he’s a force to be reckoned with. Cerberus is the three headed dog of mythology that guards the gates of the underworld, which makes this canine triple trouble! This little guy was fun to make, and being my own pattern, very satisfying as well ^.^ I used brown tone, gold, and red seed beads and wire to create this little guy. It took me a few tries to get the pattern right, though it was well worth the effort!
Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for reading! 🙂
