I am back to work with a renewed energy and hope! The market has made me think and I really want to keep on Crafting...but since I am running out of space and all my hobbies cost quite a lot I need to get into business somehow...just to recover my costs and get rid of a few things (that will hurt!)...that's why I am thinking more and more about an Etsy shop.
Hereis where I ask your assistance: is anybody among you having a Etsy shop? Is it a "serious" company? Can I trust using my Credit card for that? (I know I am paranoid...but I take money very seriously *_*)
I hope you can give me some help for this...
Yesterday evening I have been working at something I really wanted to try since a while.
Since I have seen the works of Christi Friesen (http://www.cforiginals.net/) I have literally fallen in love with her stile.
She has made plenty of very inspiring books and even on line classes and workshops. Moreover there are a lot of free downloadable projects on her site. Maybe you all know her, but I am sure that if you still don't you will find her work beautiful!
I always wanted to try to reproduce one of her sculptures:
This image is property of Christi Friesen so is the design of this piece.
I have redesigned her idea into a plate to be fixed on top of one of my boxes so here you have it inspired to the works of Christi Friesen....
Now I am in front of a great dilemma....
how do I go on decorating the box?
I have made some little coils (here they have just been put on top of the box but not glued yet)
will this be nice?
Actually, I would have preferred doing something with ink, like on the moon box...but the focal function of the plate could be disturbed if I decorate the background too much...
leaving it as it is, it's not an option: I am much too BAROQUE for it!
Here you have a detail...and...yes! I have something with fishes lately!
I really hope you like this box and I would be glad to get your comments and suggestions
Big hug to all of you
