Mounting Printed Images to Canvas

I’m going to come right out and say it. This was a hot mess on the production side of things. I bought some video editing software, had nothing but issues with it, and even got a refund on it. So I’ll be the first one to say, the editing is not perfect, but you’ll still know how to make something fun and interesting by the end.

This was going to be a Patreon video, but I have something else in mind for Patreon, and that should be up by this weekend. I’ll be breaking out the drum carder, and making some batts for yarn!

Wish me luck!

My Tribute to Christine McConnell

Christine Finsihed

For those of you who do not know – I am a huge fan of Christine McConnell! I find her to be one of the most talented and inspirational people I have ever seen! I watched her on her short lived but well loved Netflix show, I subscribe to her Patreon, as well as her Youtube. I even take the adblock off for her videos! Now that is saying something! 
This is no where near as gorgeous as something she makes, but this is simply a tribute to a truly talented human. 
Thank you Christine for crafting, creating, and inspiring!

Canvas Art Update

The studio de Eric has been in full swing… Well, trying to be in full swing. I’m still taking time for small existential breakdowns. Trying to keep busy, and focus on making some art! I’ve been digging through all of my half finished projects, and trying to do something with them! I’ve even been quilting! I have a quilt top finished, and hopefully I’ll start quilting it tonight! I’ve decided to give you guys a teaser of some of the projects currently on the slab. Keep in mind, these are not completed pieces, so they will look quite a bit different by the time I finish them!

Christine McConnell is my Muse

Since I’ve had some time off, I have been catching up with Christine McConnell. For those of you who are not familiar with her, I found her on Netflix through her show “Curious Creations of Christine McConnell”. It had one season, and I still watch it regularly. (I’m also still very bummed it was not renewed.) Now she’s on Youtube, and I once again get to see Christine create the most marvelous things! She also has a Patreon, and of course I’m subscribed!

With my time off, I have been trying to craft, sew, and paint my heart out. Why not, I have the time! So, originally I had trouble finding motivation, but then I turned on her Youtube channel and I had to catch up on what she’s been up to. She made this lovely pillow, and her tutorial is amazing! It turns out so gorgeous! She is so amazingly talented, and it’s hard not to be motivated her! This is my tribute to Christine McConnell! I have to attach all of the fabric to the canvas, and hopefully it will be done in the next day or two.

Thank you Christine for motivating me!

New Works In Progress

Finished Canvas 1

I’ve been busy! Work was swamped for 6 months, and now everything it at a halt. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. So I just wanted to share some of the pieces I have been working on. Some of them are done, and some are still in progress. I hope everyone stays safe out there. I’ll be adding more pieces I am currently working on shortly.

I’m also asking anyone with any cancelled quilt shows, art shows, or other exhibits to contact me, and I’ll gladly display your pieces!!!! The world needs to see art! Especially now!

Follow the jump for more of the canvases I’ve been tinkering with! Continue reading
