Three Chairs for You!

You know, when I opened this set I literally gasped...it is so unique and beautiful! This is another design by Lauren Pope. So versatile too, you can create classic design, design with whimsy....or masculine. I know I'll use it often.


Three Chairs



This set has such beautiful sentiments, I love this one by Thoreau: "A house needs these chairs, Ones for solitude Ones for friendship and Then those for society"...isn't that sweet!?

So I watercolored these three styles of chairs very spring-like and differently. I have it lots of scalloping and Flourishes ribbon ...do you see the cute watermark of the dog on the pillow in the lower right? He's so cute!

Ornate Chair



Look at this fabulous chair!!! You can do so much with it. I just received some beautiful glittery paper from Flourishes and thought...that pattern almost looks like a textile for upholstery...that would make a perfect chair! So, I stamped it twice, once on copper metallic and once on the glittered paper and then pieced the chair together. To give dimension to the chair I also added copic shadows within the seat and then on the wood.


For the sentiment I wanted to create a little flag but it looked too plain without some stamping so I added some of the leaves from Autumn Flourishes which match the pattern in the paper and stamped them in copper and gave them some depth with a copic marker as well.
