Recycled Misfit Toys

I’m intrigued by the idea if mixed media.  I had a collect of small toys just sitting around.  I liked them too much to give away.  I was inspired by an artist in Las Vegas and started a collection of pieces I call misfit toys. I really enjoy the hunt. Especially if the pieces are vintage (for me that would be the 70s or earlier) and really tiny like old game board pieces that are metal or wood. I boxed all the sets in acrylic.  That was a new lesson….making shadow boxes. That skill needs much work but I now own a torch.

Mini Blogger Hack?

Wanna know what goes through the head of an 11 year old boy who also likes cows and wants to sharpen his writing and humor skills?

I’ve been painting

A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  It’s hard but I like the feel of a brush in my hand.  My dogface is my inspiration. He’s a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.   Since he is so old, I’ll always have this to remind me of him.  #CKCS

Painted Graffiti Wall

Every year at Halloween I create some graffiti spray paint art for the school Halloween festival.  I really like graffiti art…not tagging, but the real artwork that it out there.  I wanted to be expiremental creating painted brick walls

I made several and had them sitting around for months.  Then I was inspired and they make perfect Christmas presents for some teenagers I know.

Santa in an Afternoon

Catch-up, catch-up….

As with many 10-year-old boys, I was informed the day before his Christmas program that he was Santa and needed a costume.  Seemed easy enough but boys must not be a fan of red because I could not find boys sized read sweatsuits in any store.  Not even in the women’s department.  Off to GoodWill the two of us went to come the racks.  We found a red fleece zip up and a very large pair of women’s velour pants.  I was in a rush, 2 yards of faux fir and old lady sweats will have to do.

I had to narrow the legs of the pants or they would just slide right off.  I also cut off at least 2/3 to shorten.  it was simple to just sew the faux fir to the edges.  Thank God for being able to at least sew a straight line.

Ho, ho, ho to the finished product.
