One great thing about having a big studio is hosting craft days. I love seeing friends pour in with piles of supplies and watching the creations start developing.
My family was performing at a festival outside of St. Louis (where they got to be on stage with some of their favorite musicians, doing their act to the tunes) and they needed a little something to top off the costumes they'd chosen for the event's themes. Each day was a different color and theme, with outer space, ocean, and - Circus Sunday!
Kia made this one.
They are based on pieces of felt, adorned with fancy stuff, and then have a clip added to the back.
Here is one I made for Avahni. She wanted it slightly steam punkish.
Our friend, Amanda made this for Katie Tree.
Hers were the mermaid themed ones.
Kia also spent some time painting and glittering a Donation tin to set up for tips during their shows.
I adore my studio, and love it even more when it is filled with creative souls.
Here is one that I made for Sugarwings.
These aren't typically the type of things that I make, but it was sure fun to dabble with feathers and glitter for an afternoon. And to be inspired by some artists who specialize in this kind of glitzi-ness.
