Spindle Table Leg Dragonflies with Raised Fleur De Lis and Medallion Patterns, Textured Peacock Feather Wings and Sea Shell Wings

table leg dragonfly with fleur de lis wings repurposed recycled art
It's actually been a few months since I had a dragonfly post
and I have lots of new ones to share. All of these
are made using raised patterns.

For the fleur de lis dragonfly I used the same process
as the textured medallion dragonflies I've made in the past
to create the pattern and I really like how it turned out.

I used a door latch for the eyes...

and added a piece of vintage tin on the triangle shaped body.

This dragonfly was actually shipped to Norway!

I painted in a verdigris look with copper on the medallions.

For the sea shell dragonfly, I used the texture

Thanks for checking out my textured dragonflies!

Swing by my Etsy Shop to see what's new or 
visit me on FacebookPinterest and I'm now on a
new site called CustomMade.

It's a pretty neat concept, you don't necessarily list items for sale but instead post 
your portfolio so people searching for custom items can see examples of your
work and commission you to create what they are looking for.
There are lots of talented craftsmen and artists on there, 
you should pop over and have a look.
I just got my first order from there, so I'm excited about it :)

New Christmas Stocking Designs

hand painted sea life christmas stockings
Last year, I added new ocean life designs including a shark, 
jellyfish, crab and seahorse

This year I added six more designs, staying with
 the sea life theme and using the same colors and dot style painting.

I have a sand dollar stocking...

flip flop christmas stocking

I came up with a whole list of other sea life or beachy designs I wanted to do
 but I picked six and figured that would be enough for this year.

I was never able to find any more pre-made natural canvas stockings after those first few
I found on Ebay so I hire someone to make them for me to my own specifications.

sea coral christmas stocking
 A pretty Sea Coral Stocking...

Octopus tentacles Christmas Stocking
...and lastly, an octopus. In this case it's just the tentacles.

I love this design but wasn't sure if it was coming off as tentacles or just 
a wavy design. I called on my Facebook peeps to cast a vote for 
just the tentacles version or...

octopus christmas stocking
...the whole octopus body version. 
The body won out by a long shot over just the tentacle design,
so... body it is.
The octopus may be my favorite!

mosaic octopus
Speaking of octopus, I've been on an octopus kick lately, and 
after creating the octopus stocking, I decided I wanted to make a mosaic octopus,
and yes I just used the word octopus five times in this sentence.

He's in progress and he's big...of course... about 4 feet wide.
I'll share more pics when he is all done.

Thanks for checking out all the new designs!
See all of them in my Etsy store.
