This weekend my husband took the kids so I could go to the studio and work on some new pieces. These are pieces I am especially excited about because instead of putting my artwork on leather, they give you a chance to put your artwork on leather!
We are starting with six of our most popular items as kits and I have been experimenting with different ways of simplifying my artistic methods even more. For our Clutch Wallet Kit, I did a simple floral painting directly on the leather. No tools were required, all I need was the kit, paints and some water. Here are a few photos of the piece in progress (sorry for no hand-in shots – I was working by myself and that is totally awkward. I have no idea how people shoot themselves while working!).
The clutch wallet is a piece we have been developing for several months now – and it is handmade, start to finish, right here in Seattle!
The next kit that we are introducing is our Leather-Wrapped Flask Kit. We are making this kit in four different flask sizes – 4oz, 6oz, 8oz and 12oz – and it makes a wonderful gift. We have actually made this kit a few times using permanent marker to add pattern. It works wonderfully – you could let your kids draw on a flask for dad (or mom!) for a holiday or birthday gift. Much better than a tie or a robe!
And speaking of kids – my little one just woke up, so it is time for me to sign off. He’s making adorable eyes at me so I do so happily.
