Newest creation! Mixed media painting using vintage patterns and doll dress

You gotta love a snow day!  As the new year begins, the first thing on my list is"Create" mixed media _DSC0001_DSC0002_DSC0003_DSC0004_DSC0005_DSC0035 _DSC0029 to complete projects that I have started then, well….set aside. Today, being stuck inside while the temps reach -8, I thought it would be a good day to begin the begun! Here’s kinda the run down when it comes to my studio….I begin searching through mason jars filled with amazing buttons and laces, threads and I don’t know what they are called, and I begin thinking of five projects at once! I love the delicious colors and textures of the reds, blues, and creams.  The possibilities.  Yes, a blessing to be able to create, not so much so if things aren’t completed!  So here’s to a new year, and a newly completed project!

I created this piece using vintage patterns, buttons,and a tiny hand stitched doll dress that I found at an antique store.  I embellished it with a vintage zipper for hanging.  I’ll be listing it to Etsy if my daughter lets me!

About refoundesign

Hi! I obtained a B.S. in Interior Design with a focus in Art History. After working in computer aided design and years of child rearing the embers of artistic creativity are being rekindled and I've begun working a mix of media including photography, folk art painting, and repurposing vintage finds. I love sharing in the joys and inspiration of other creative bloggers as well. Welcome! Heather
