The Strongest Muscle: Sacred Heart Edition

This year for the holidays I'm rolling out this new edition of my 2013 piece titled The Strongest Muscle with a Sacred Heart twist.

I spent a few days tea staining paper and individually hand embellishing each print with gold leaf. It's a pain staking and very delicate process, so I was only able to make six. I planned for fifteen, but sometimes prints decide for themselves whether or not they want to be made!

My tea staining process changes every time I do it, so this time I experimented with jasmine flower infused black tea and a tad of bronze paint. To my surprise they came out smelling fragrant like my favorite flower and with just a hint of glimmer. This could be the shiniest thing I've ever done!

I don't have many 5x7 frames available on hand, but I figure with the oval shape of the gilding, a floating frame or a 5x7 mat frame in an 8x10 frame would look best.

These guys are available here in my etsy shop!

Water and blah blah blah

These are a few of my favorite things!

Dreams Under Siege Restock!

I still only have 17 pairs of leggings available at the moment, but all sizes are available again! (US S-XL)

Dreams Under Siege is a dark fantasy tale featuring watercolor roses an robes, visions of knives and arrows raining down on the pure of heart, iridescent foil crystals and gothic windows, a princess bearing a sword, and elegant beasts all against gorgeous light dove grey stretch cotton! Your legs will tell the story of the constant attack we dreamers, artists, and creators endure on a daily basis.

I finally took a day to explore my new Tennessee home a bit more! I found an abandoned airport along the way, so I decided to walk all over it in my new best friend of pants that aren't really pants. I mean, do you really think you'd catch Mrs. Addams in a pair of jeans? Not even in the grave.
