I've been fascinated lately with gold leaf. I'd never tried it, it was always on my creation "to-do" list, but we all know how long that list can get, and how high priority things may soon take back seat to new interests and brainstorms. But this time gold leafing took front seat, and soon I will be creating even more of these plates for my shop, and for a show I do every summer. If there is enough interest in a tutroial, I will write one up and post it here within the next week, so please, if you are interested, leave a comment and I will work on the instructions and photos and get it on my blog as soon as possible.
My name is Carol and I am an addict. I cannot get enough of things of old..... buttons, lacey things, rusty musty things, bits and bobs all which make up my creations. I would consider myself a self taught multi media artist, but all of my things have this in common... my love for nature, animals and anything vintage. I am married, mother of 4 children, residing in a 120 year old Victorian home. My idea of heaven is spending time with family, and even more so if we are at "B's Nest", our 80 year old log cabin tucked in the woods of Northern Michigan. Favorite hobby is (as always) my love of animals, antiques and vintage finds, and currently creating things for home, family, or etsy!!
