Something New Out Of Something Old
Honestly in this economy, I'm like everyone else, looking for new ways to use something I already have , recycling, re-purposing, re-creating or what ever you call it, it can be fun! Here is an old dresser I had with pretty beat-up drawers, everytime I looked at it I thought it was too damaged to decorate with artwork so I kept passing it by. Then one day I was going through my fabric box and pulled out a piece that I just loved but was too fragile to sew anything out of, then it dawned on me to decopauge the beatup drawers of my dresser with it! I love the look of my dresser now and I get to see the pretty fabric everyday. Another Idea came to me as I was staring at this french script paper I got at a scrap-booking store, I loved it so much and wanted to incorporate it into my artwork, then again, it dawned on me to decopauge the mat around my art with it! I love the french appeal it gave my painting of roses without spending allot of money.
I'm a mother of 2 beautiful children , Cherise and AJ, whom are the loves of my life. I have 2 dogs that I adore, Jack and Jade. My creative passions are painting roses and decorating. I recently moved from a charming 1920's beach cottage to a very large home in the country, my "Chateau de Fleurs" where I now have a studio/shop in my home and also host a vintage marketplace every 3 months.
