Commissions in Gray

One of the things that makes me happiest is when a friend asks for a piece of custom work.  It does wonders for my ego, as well as give me a chance to design something with someone else’s style vantage.

First up – some dinosaur earrings.  They are made using plastic dinosaurs and an outdoor paint that works on all surfaces.  A few years back I found a paint that works for painting dinosaurs – a unique and frustrating problem.  It was fun to use this technique again – and the results are lovely and menacing.

Next up – a dresden pillow that I LOVE.  A friend said that she would love to have the extra dresden I have, but I knew the colors didn’t match her home, so I created a new one that matched her gorgeously decorated bedroom.  Did I mention I LOVE this?  A great example how changing my viewpoint can create something lovely.  This was done all from stash fabric except for the gorgeous linen-looking charcoal.  I tried three different circle fabrics before deciding on using the dark gray in the middle.  Much more modern and gorgeous.
