What I've been doing and what I'm gonna do

Boy, it's been a long time since I posted. I've been creating some, and trying to get some order in my studio. It may just be a losing battle. This is a shrine in the making. It has been developing in my head since I got the vintaged sewing figurines. They come from my buddy Rose in AZ. We met online and have been E'ing everyday since. We send goodie boxes back and forth and these figurines were in my last box. They are too cute so of course they have to be 'shrined'. But since they are so dimensional, I am doing a standing shrine instead of a house type. The vintage spools of thread came from Rose too.I am very excited about these. They are just too cute! Thanks again Rose!! Check out her work, she is amazing!
She also has a website in my links-Altered Rose.

I have been doing another textured piece too. It may be finished, I'm not sure.
I really like the way the nest turned out. But man what a pain making sure all the little spaces are painted!
I completed Dawns little thingie, but I can't show it to you 'cause it is in the mail on it's way to her and she should see it first. Dawn is another amazing artist-Gold Betty Boop- in my links.

I'm really very lucky to have met so many artists online.

Hi Mary, Mary, quite contrary. Naw, you're not contrary at all, but you ARE very creative.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your amazing texture piece. It seems you're bypassing me in the texture world. But that's good, as long as I know I inspired you. And now you're inspiring me. That's what it's all about, no?, the give and take and cooperation of fellow artists.

This piece is so great. Very beautiful, and I want to reach out and touch it. How did you do the leaf at the bottom left? I can't really tell, because the enlargement picture is rather blurry. The leaf looks super textured, so did you do something special to it?

Maybe you could post a brief description of how you made this piece??? That would be very cool. I'm sure lots of us out here want to know. It seems to me that you've taken my Mega-Texture technic even further than I did. Kudos to you for that.

It is always nice to have so complete a tutorial for that sort of piece. Will you do any painting or glazing or gilding or whatever after you are sure it is done? I love the nest, and I bet it WAS a bear to get in those tiny spaces! Great job!
