FRANKLIN 35

Let me introduce Franklin 35, a robot I made for the gals at Fidelity Bank in Shirley. Five little robots were made from polymer clay, watch gears, screws, valve cores, a quarter and a dime…hence 35. Franklin’s job is to watch over the girls and bring them happiness.

Happy New Year to the gals at Fidelity and to all my family and friends.

Merry Christmas

From all the gals at Liberty House: Jan, Pat, Kinzee, Kally, Kracker and Pepper…Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  May your heart be filled with love and joy and may the New Year be one of health and happiness.

Here’s a toast from Kinzee:

Little Chapel…

 My favorite store to visit is Ink About It in Westford, Massachusetts.   They have a large selection of rubber stamps, nice papers, a good supply of Tim Holtz products, other art supplies, and they offer many neat art classes.   Classes range from card making, altered art, journals, Zentangle, intro to stamping, to name just a few.  They now have a  contest for customers…make a  house for their “village”.  Here’s mine…a litttle chapel with stained glass windows.  I used alcohol inks to tint some acetate…glued it to the back of the window cut outs.  Then I covered the outside of the “glass” with Crackle  Accents.  You should go to the store and see all the neat houses that people are making…the village is growing each and every day!  You know what they say: “It takes a village…”

Products used:

Adirondack Alcohol Ink

Crackle Accents

Premo polymer clay

Studio multi-medium matte

Magazine…

Scott Publications  just released a new magazine called  JUST STEAMPUNK  and I was fortunate enough to have 9 of my steampunk pieces featured in the new magazine.  What a thrill it was for me to see my art pieces that I have made for family and friends in print!  If you get a chance to pick up a copy you will see some pretty awesome pieces made by my friend in Canada, Kimberly Hart owner of Monster Kookies,  Christi Friesen of California and many other very talented artist.  I feel very humbled to have my work shown with these talented women.  In September I was lucky to take a whole weekend of classes in New Hampshire with Christi Friesen who teaches internationally.  Both of these women have been an inspiration to me.  Darleen Bellan of Darbella Studios in New Hampshire has also influenced my work.  Thank you to all my friends in art!

PARTY FAVORS

Saturday we had our 9th annual “Liberty Jingle” Christmas party.  We had 22 our our friends and family celebrate the holiday with us.  I made these favors as gifts.  The little tea light village was inspired from Tim Holtz who had these featured on his blog last year.  The Liberty magnet was made from a domino…Jan printed out the image for me and I decoupaged the image to a domino and covered it with Glossy Accents.  Candy, a bag of coal: (because we think the gals have been naughty), the tea light and a lottery ticket were housed in a chimney  that was made from a coffee tin.
