Lisa Gauthier, Inspired by Pinterest

by Libby on July 28, 2013

One of the highlights of the recent Klay Away Retreat in New Hampshire was watching fellow SCPCG member, Lisa Gauthier, create a lovely cane inspired by a couple of photos on Pinterest.

Here’s a collage photo she made of the photo that inspired her to make a sunny painterly cane (top right), as well as the photo that she used as an image guide along with the finished cane:

Here’s the cane and photo at her workspace:

So much fun! It reminds me of the Bahamas.  She mad a couple of great and simple pins with it, using a single rhinestone as a sparkly “sun”. (Lisa’s a sparkle girl.)   She very generously gifted me with a slice of the reduced cane.

Ellen and Sue of Creative Journey Studios and Filigree and More showed me these lovely new silver plated channel bangles. They turned out to be the perfect thing to ease me back into a creative mood. I made a few in May and they were the perfect project for the retreat in New Hampshire last weekend. I find myself wearing several of them almost every day.

A Tour of My Previous Studios

July 5, 2013

Setting up my studio in our new home got me thinking about the other creative spaces I’ve had.  For your basic rectangle in the basement, it is surprisingly different from all my other spaces. My new studio, will be my fourth dedicated creative space.  The first one came about when I commandeered a craft table […]
