Studio Time Tag and Footrest

 Since we've moved into the new house, I haven't had much time to create anything in my studio. I've spent most of the time finding things and sorting out drawers of product and treasures. 

Finally I think the chests are arranged and the pictures are hung.

I decided to create just a simple, one dimension tag with paints, stamps and pens.

Nothing fancy or elaborate.....Ha! As if I could know when to stop.

Here's the tag with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints and Lynne Perrella stamps. The finishing touches are with a white paint pen and a fine line black permanent ink pen.

Just lay down some paint on a large tag and then start stamping. The images aren't perfect, but I don't care. It felt good to be playing. 

This kept me busy for the afternoon and off the internet. A good day. 

This project was also fun. I've used and old "in box" turned upside down as a footrest since I have short legs. It helps to keep my legs level under my desk. Best for long episodes of working without being smart enough to get up and move periodically. Guilty.

This plain box was painted black and then stenciled with icing paste from Finnabair. The color is Fire Ruby that has hints of gold when the light shines just right. Amazing colors. 

The stencil is Dandelions from Finnabair.

I added some metal tape that I'd embossed using a Tim Holtz folder with black paint in the recessed areas. Now it's a bit more decorative and it kept me off the streets for a bit during the process. 

Good times again.

Be well and find time to do something you love every day. That saying hangs on my wall in the studio and I should remember to do just that....every day.
