Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
This weeks winner is Shannon Westmeyer of After Hours Art Glass. Congratulations!
Send Jennifer an e-mail with your address and she will get it right out to you.
Oscar's teeth are made with nails. Interesting dilemma, you can't get a drill in a small space and have it drive in straight. Cool crooked teeth!
This is my newest project, decorative birdhouse. It's not really made to go outside. The roof has soda can shingles. The siding is made from paper beads/tubes. The ValPak coupons are the perfect length, only a little bit of trimming after you roll them. I glued my charms on it and dangled pewter bird charms from them. Feet are beads, a couple coats of varnish and voila!
With kids and a husband at home for the summer these projects could be picked up and put down through out the day. I didn't have to worry about clay drying out. It's been busy this summer visiting college campuses with my son. I have to keep my hands busy.
My question is:
Is there a summer project you have been working on?
Tried something new?
Have something you would love to try?
Leave a comment on Art Bead Scene's Blog and you could win a LUV2TRVL button for all of your adventures this summer!
Happy Traveling and enjoy the summer!
School definitely needs to start soon!
