How I’ve Been Keeping Busy…

Monday, January 11th, 2010

I’m lucky enough to be on holidays – so what have I been doing with my time?

I finished off a commissioned painting, and delivered it to my happy customer:

Now that one’s done, I’ve started working on another commission, this one for a friend:

This is just one panel of a triptych.  I’m looking forward to seeing the finished painting on her wall!  Also a big thank you to my wonderful husband for the new easel it’s sitting on, which I got for Christmas.

Finally, I’ve also been working on some new pendants – these ones are squares and rectangles:

I’m offering a discount to my facebook fans this week – buy a keepsake box and a pendant in your choice of design for $50.  Become a fan of KL Bailey Art on facebook for more details!

Inspire Me Thursday – Handmade Gifts

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

This week’s topic over at Inspire Me Thursday is Handmade Gifts.  Perfect for this time of year!

My contribution is these wearable art pendants I have just listed on Etsy.  I think they would make wonderful Christmas gifts:

And if you’re looking for a beautiful jewellery box to give the pendant in, one of my keepsake boxes would be perfect!  This picture really doesn’t do them justice – they look much nicer in real life.

I have ordered a new shipment of boxes which I’m told will arrive before Christmas.  Some styles of the boxes actually sold out last time before I even picked the order up from the post office.  So if you’re interested in a particular style, please let me know asap and I’ll put one aside for you!

These are the designs coming in the next order – if there’s another painting you’d like to see on a keepsake box, let me know and I’ll put it in the next order:

One last thing – I’ll be drawing the winner of the giveaway later today – so if you’re interested in entering, please do so soon!

Inspire Me Thursday – Labels

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Well, it’s been a hectic week, but I’ve finally gotten around to putting up something for this week’s Inspire Me Thursday.  I was lucky this week in that the topic fitted in well with something I had to do anyway – make labels for the wearable art pendants I was finishing for a custom order.

These labels are made with prints of my watercolour artworks.  They feature the name of the pendant (each pendant is titled and signed on the back) and state that the pendant is handpainted (makes a nice touch when giving the pendants as a gift).

I hope the recipient likes them!

In other news, I am thrilled that my Silver White Winter painting was chosen for Timothy Adam Designs’ Etsy Top 10! Check it out – the other items in the Top 10 are well worth looking at as well.

Wearable Art

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

This weekend I’ve been working hard on a new venture – wearable art.

I’ve made a few pendants already.  Each one features an individually painted work of art.

"Evening Rain" - Wearable art "Pink Morning" Wearable art "Twilight Tree" wearable art "Spring Day" Wearable art "Autumn Tree" wearable art

If you’d like to purchase any of these pendants, they are available at my etsy store.

I’ll be making more of this type of pendant, so stay tuned!
