Pretty In Pastel
Doesn't this wall pocket remind you of a waffle ice cream cone? Gary thought so and I have to agree. I'm wondering about leather or a ribbon strung through the holes, maybe some wire, that might be the ticket. I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone using these pretty in pastel colors, still they feel good to me, happy feeling.
This is a slipped group with satin clear glaze I'm working on. The slip colors stayed true which I was happy about. I've painted the wood background for them three times. I think I have it this time with a bit of silver and amber to make the wood appear rustic and worn. I guess I just couldn't paint the wood white or cream, I had to darken the arrangement with black. Interesting; I may have to see what they would look like with a lighter background.
Here are a few more of the pastel flowers I'm letting settle in my mind a bit, thinking about lusters and planning some mixed media arrangements. More about that later.
Stay tuned for that desert recipe I promised, a childhood story and more, thanks for reading and for all your comments and encouragement.
