Well, as this endeavor for charity moves forward, I would like to take the time to tell you about the Niles Art and Culture Council. I am one of the members of the Council. We began our journey 2 years ago and have reached a point now where we can support an artful endeavor. I was fortunate enough to have the Council agree to support my idea where artists will volunteer to paint purses to go on auction. Wings charity was our choice since we are repurposing purses from resale stores into beautiful works of art just like the lives that are helped through Wings to repurpose their lives and pursue a dream of a better life.
With that being said...I have revealed the purses bought in a previous blog. It is now time to begin the reveal of some of the makeovers.
Here is todays 1st purse....done by myself using the Deco Art's so-soft fabric paints and their newest Leather paints. I am so thrilled with the way they came out. What great paint....it went on so smoothly and the finish is fantastic. Thanks Deco Art for a great product. I am rest assured that whoever gets this purse will be happy in the durability of the paint.
The purse is done by using a technique which has become very popular in the art world recently. It has been painted and then "Zentangled" I love that you can create such beauty by doodling. It was fun to choose the colors to help co-ordinate with the purse's amazing pink shade. I hope that you enjoy seeing it. If you are at all interested in bidding on the purse and are not able to attend the auction on December 2, 2017...please contact me. We will hold closed bids that will be bid on by a stand in on the night of the auction.
I will be putting on a new purse each week as well as a composite in the end.
Enjoy and thank you for looking. I would love to hear your comments.
