New Art Studio Curtains

This was a very fun project.  I hand-painted new curtains for my New Art Studio.  I wanted something fun and artsy for the Art Studio, so I created them.

I started with some white sheeting fabric.

Then I dug out some textile paint I had from previous projects, and brushed on some hot pink.

I went to a smaller sized paint brush and brushed on some violet, used brush strokes and some spatters, and I am liking it so far.

Next I applied teal, and then threw on a splattering of gold.

Curtain #1 of 4 drying.

I repeated the process for curtain #2, sewed the rod pockets, the hems and mounted the curtain rod on the wall and tada!!!  One set of curtains done!!

Here is a close up of the painting.

I started curtain #3 for Window #2 and ran shy of paint.  After several days of looking and several trips to local art supply stores, I found more paint in Sarasota.  Yay!!!

Here are the completed set of curtains for Window #2, painted, rod pockets and hems sewn; and curtain rod mounted.

I am loving my new artsy curtains for my New Art Studio.  I did not like being out back after dark with no curtains.  It is also going to help keep it a little cooler in there for the summer too.

Loving my new studio, and loving my new artsy, hand-painted curtains.  Having fun being creative.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I am back to blogging and creating new jewelry.  Look for new posts and pics coming in the next few weeks.  Will get back in full swing after the holidays. So sorry I have not posted in such a long time.  What can I say, life happens.

I leave you with this collage of some of my work.  The background is a hand painted silk scarf I designed with butterflies, a pair of black and blue handmade (lampwork) beaded earrings, and a black, red and white memory wire bracelet with a handmade (lampwork) black, red and white focal bead.

Wishing each and every one of you a blessed holiday season.  Christina
