This week I'm going to shake things up a little by challenging myself to a new pattern or block print that you haven't seen each day. Starting with some houndstooth. Coral red over salmon pink. Has anyone else noticed that houndstooth looks a little like Batman?
Clearly I have been spending too much time alone in the studio.
There is a little chill in the air, so I thought I would pull out this pretty (elle)ement. Two paisleys in cream over a grey background. Like many, this one hangs well more than one way, enjoy! And happy Monday!
In the South, deviled eggs seem omnipresent. Especially in the summer time, next to potato salads and the like. But when I was growing up, we made deviled eggs at Christmas time. So this little egg on a deep burgundy background may ring your bell, or make you shake your head. In either case, have a great day, and I'll see you back here tomorrow.
In the pink! Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that I spent some time last week carving paisleys. They are for a commission I am working on, perhaps I'll show it off when it's finished. Until then, here is a tiny element of the piece. (see what I did there!)
A rather busy little abstract composition, a bit of a blue grey chrysanthemum on a warm yellow background. Lots of diagonal lines from the sewing pattern it's printed on. And I think the other half may just be tomorrow's.
Another bluesy number. The color just isn't right in this shot though, what looks like pale grey is actually a robin's egg blue, and the deep blue is what I would call teal. Just doing the best with what I have here folks!
A beautiful damask pattern in cornflower blue and pea soup green. An odd sounding combination, but it works, elegantly. This pattern was designed by my husband, Scott. It really is handy to have a guy around, who when you are pushed for time, can step up to the plate and come up with something so lovely.
This one is a bit of a tease, as it does connect with the top half, which will be tomorrow's piece. But the occasional person does like this one as is, without it's mate. The background color leans to green, obviously printed on dress pattern tissue. See you back here tomorrow!
As you know, I post a new (elle)ement each day. I also take them to shows.
Some are in boxes, some are beside my desk, many have been sold and have either been shipped, or are waiting in piles to be shipped. But those that haven't sold are building up.
So here is the deal, below are three photos showing all the (elle)ements I have put up on the blog that haven't sold. They will be available here until Monday when I box them up and put them into my inventory that goes with me to shows. Next up, by the way, is RiverArts Fest in Memphis, TN next weekend!
And just to sweeten the pot, I'll take 10% off any sales of these through Sunday night.
As usual, if you find four you like, I'll ship them for free.
Here we have, in no particular order
And group 3
And just to get you thinking, here are some groups I pulled out of the sea of availables...
Four focusing on purple and green.
Six subtle pieces, they would sing in a pale room, or at a beach house perhaps?
9 that just pop with reds and graphic images.
And another 9, just for fall, or lovers of fall colors.
Interested in one, or a bunch? At $22.50 each, you can afford a treat!
Send me an email with your choices, obviously they will be first come first serve.
