The Coloring Book
"Collections and Curiosities" is my newest project. 20 dollars includes shipping.
Made from repurposed, found objects, these steampunk figures give new life to old cameras, sewing machines, and tape recorders. All materials were inherited, second hand or out of the dump. Each one represents a character from a book or a WIP like Evelyn of the Sea.
Each journal is hand crafted with 50+ blank pages and a coptic binding system. Hand painted backgrounds with vintage, multi-media elements, some from my grandmother's extensive sewing collection that I inherited. I sell them at local craft fairs for 30 bux.
These quilts I made for my two daughters. I used a great book called SCRAP REPUBLIC for reference, but the pattern ended up deviating slightly from the original. I never can quite stick with patterns. The rainbow quilt was made from old shirts that my mother-in-law had saved. The red quilt came from my huge store of fabric. Finally I put it to some good use.
Each "nymph" is hand sculpted from clay and wood and clothed to match the element they represent. Shown here is Fire and Wind. They stand between 6-8 inches and cost 50$.
