Linda's Steampunk Theatre, FUN Announcement, and NEW GOODS!
Happy New Year everyone! It's already been a busy, creative, and exciting 2013 over here! The first thing I would love to share is the STUNNING Steampunk Theatre created by the fantastic, talented, Linda Cain. You can view more photos and how-tos on Linda's post!
Speaking of Linda, a few weeks ago she contacted me and asked if I would be interested in her designing some pieces using our Coffee Break Design goods. Being familiar with Linda's work, I jumped at the chance and sent out a box of goodies right away. You can see from the piece above, her projects have been outstanding. So I asked Linda if she would like to be a part of the permanent Design Team and to my delight she accepted! Welcome to the Design Team Linda - we are thrilled to have you! Stay tuned for more lovely work from Linda Cain!
Last week I released a few new goodies including these wonderful "Manikin" Articulated Dolls! I wanted to play with one right away so here is what I came up with...
The pieces come on a sheet that you punch out, so before punching out the pieces, I spray painted the front white, and the back pink. For quite some time I've wanted to try my hand at the art of Zentangle, so I wanted a white surface to work on. Gesso would work as well.
You can find some wonderful Zentangle inspiration on Pinterest. I checked out some patterns and then using a fine black Sharpie, went to town!
And here she is, my first Zentangle Female Manikin! I used Black Eyelets to attach the pieces once I Zentangled all my parts!
The new Manikins also inspired some more JUST RELEASED goodies! Like these Stand-Up Busts (Male and Female of course!)...
Stand-Up Hands (in 3 different styles)... and More!
Check out all of the NEW goodies HERE! I hope you are looking forward to 2013 as much as I am! xoxo
