Decorative Focus

I love the idea of grouping several photos of something you love as a focus of your office, your den, or your living room. You bring gorgeous photos together, don’t spend a fortune, and create a happy place you and anyone who visits you will love.

Here’s an example –

I love lighthouses. I’ve been fascinated by them since I was a child. Living in Arkansas, I don’t get to see lighthouses very often. But look at these!

 

 

 

 

 

Using a variety of layered effects filters, Joe has created a unique artistic rendition of these photographs. These are open edition prints, printed on archival card stock with satin finish. The prints are 8×10 with 11×14, acid-free, white mats that are ready for framing with a standard 11×14 frames. Of course, no watermark on actual prints. Signed on the mat by the artist.

If you love pretty windows, sailing ships, flowers – see more of Joe Parskey’s photos  – to make your own collection!

Christmas in February

I finished painting my “Gingerbread Cookies” Wooden personalized ornament collection this afternoon!

 

gc1

Cookie Plate 1 – “Angel,” “Bell with Clapper,” “Ornament,” “Fancy Snowflake,” and “Rounded Snowflake.”

 

gc2

Cookie Plate 2 –  “Teddy Bear,” “Moose,” and “Christmas Cookie.”

 

gc3

Cookie Plate 3 – “Butterfly,” “Rudolph,” “Starburst,” and “Small Christmas Tree.”

 

gc4

Cookie Plate 4 – “Rounded Christmas Tree,” “Christmas Stocking,” “Snowman,” and “Birdhouse.”

 

gc5

 

Cookie Plate 5 –  “Rounded Bell,” “Dove,” and “Mitten.”

Each of these is made of light weight wood, perfect to hang on your tree. The back is painted brown, like the front, with a white band across for personalization. You can have the name of the recipient and the year,  “to _____ from _____ and the year,” “_____’s First Christmas and the year,” etc. at no extra charge. The size of the ornaments ranges from approximately 2.5″ across to 5″ across.  You can order as many ornaments as you like. They can be made to look like the ones above or each one can be different. I’ll work with you to make these just the way you want them. As each one is painted by hand, please allow approximately 3 weeks for creation and delivery. If you would like to order several of the same ornament, please email me at linda@creativeartworks.cc to check quantity in stock, as more time may be needed if you need more than I have on hand.

You are the first to see these. They aren’t listed on Creative Artworks yet. I’ll have them up soon. “:0)

I’ve had such a good time working on these custom Christmas cards, even though it’s the wrong time of the year, and I won’t see any sales for quite awhile. Now I’m working on wooden Christmas ornaments in the same theme. I’ll show you pics when they’re finished.

Custom Christmas Cards – Take 2

gc6

As I told you yesterday, I’ve had a lot of fun creating these “Gingerbread Coolies” Custom Christmas cards. I’ll be listed them on Creative Artworks soon, but I wanted to show them to you and see what you think. The design on the left above is “Christmas Bell,” and the one on the right is “Gingerbread Girl.”

 

gc9

The one on the top is “Giant Gingerbread Cookie,” and the one on the bottom is “Starburst.” The customer can choose any combination of 8 cards in a package, and then can customize words on the front and on the inside at no extra charge.

 

gc8

Since each card is made to order,  customers will need to allow approximately 3 weeks for delivery to be sure I can fill the order in good time. The one on the left is “Angel,” and the one on the right is “Blue Bird.”

 

gc7

The one on the left is “Snowman,” and the one on the right is “Christmas Tree.” I can do the same design as you see in the picture or I can customize it further by changing color accents if you like.

 

gc5

The design on the left is “Christmas Ornament,” and the one on the right is “Christmas Bird.”

I used cookie cutters for some of the designs, and wooden ornaments for others, painted them the gingerbread cookie brown, and then had fun decorating the cookies! :0)
