This is the next big give away! I have named this pretty glass dome, 'Marie de la Mer' she is made from paper, vintage fabric and sea shells. The glass skirt lifts up to reveal the underwater vignette, a pink paper seahorse swiming in a coral reef embellished with vintage jewels and pearls. Marie's high vitorian collar is made from seafan and tiny paper thin starfish.
I will be teaching a class, so that you can make your very own 'Marie' on July 9th the cost is $129.00 but I am giving away one seat in class! To qualify just leave a comment here and tell me a fun fact about Marie Antoinette. The lucky winner will be announced this Sunday at The Mermaid's Mercantile!
We have been working late hours creating, staging and making things beautiful for the next Sunday's big flea market event! We just unloaded two truckloads of beautiful vintage pieces that will be for sale this weekend.
I came home from the shop last night at about 10pm and my laptop was calling me.... blog Debi Blog!
I can create art untill 3am but working online is something that is better done in the morning.
I try not to get blogged down... I really enjoy the world of blogging and after my post is finished I always say that wasn't so bad. For some, blogging must be a breeze, I am so amazed by all of the talent, beauty and art that I never knew exsisted untill I dipped my humble toe in the blogging pool.
For me it is not so breezy, I must talk myself through it, labor over every word and delete and start over untill my eyes burn.
OK enough complaining.... there is 5 days untill the Mermaid's Mercantile and I have some wonderful artist's to introduce to you.
http://vintagebliss.typepad.com/ Tricia is a doll...and her Mom is just as sweet and talented too! Tricia travels, teaches, sells her vintage bliss all over, and if that is not all... Tricia produces her own magazine called, Blissfully Traveled! A magazine dedicated to fun places to visit and shop for the vintage and handmade obsessed! The dreamy crown pictured above is a special process that Tricia teaches using cool images and beeswax. The cupcake painting is from her Mom, Jeanne Samal. This yummy cupcake painting sold right away, please make another Jeanne!
Tricia and her traveling trunk of treasures can be found at Glitterfest this Saturday and with us at the Mermaid's Mercantile on Sunday!
The next artist to introduce to you is the lovely, Holly Stinnet. of http://hollylovesart.blogspot.com/ coming to us from the LA area.
I am so excited to meet Holly and see her work in person, I cannot tell you. Holly's dreamy art studio was recently featured in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. Holly also teaches classes and can often be found selling and creating at one of the fabulous events hosted by Kim Caldwell.Holly will have a table full of Handmade aprons and Mermaid dolls, and vintage inspired goodness.
I would arrive early before her table is sold out. I know that I will be at her table shopping and making a list of all the things I must own by this oh so very talented artist.
Thanks for stopping by,
Looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday! More give aways coming all week long, stay posted!
