Yup…you heard correctly! I still play with dolls! I play with them in a different way than I did when I was a child. I get a little more creative with them. Wait a minute…I guess I did that too when I was younger. Some things never change!
Anyhoo…I was playing around with some doll graphics and shrinky sink plastic (remember this when you were younger!) I wanted to make some pins but they did not turn out the way I expected. I started with a 5 cm circle and after baking the shrinky dink plastic I ended up with a 2 cm circle. What can I do with these little things? They are cute but they are pretty teeny!
As I mentioned in my previous post I’ve been busy creating. I’ve been reStyling or reDesigning thrift store finds and making some vintage inspired goodies. The next market I will be in is Portobello West Fall Market. Portobello West showcases wares from local designers, artists & producers. I was fortunate enough to be joining some talented peeps. The Market is held at the Creekside Community Recreation Centre in Vancouver. This is an awesome venue!
Anyhoo…below are some of my creations,
Vintage Inspired Paper Doll Softie
Vintage inspired desk lamp or pendant light
ReDesigned Vintage Globe Pendant Light
Vintage Mason Jars painted with chalk/artisan paint
ReStyled Vintage Milk Glass Lantern using Cottage Paint
I’ve also been trying out different chalk/clay paints that are made locally. I’ll tell you about in a future post.
