Here They Are

Here they are....the most recent Shadowbox Clocks I finished. The first is the gift clock I mentioned before. 

It has a picture of Theresia's son Austin, as a baby with a poem from him to his mom. 




This is the printout of the design that was used in the clock. I wrote the poem after a few thoughts were given to me what he (Austin) wanted to say.





What you see in the bottom left corner is something I can't go into, but it was requested.













           Here it is in the frame.










Some of you know of the Rise Above design on the left. So this is the front side of the picture in this post.

Now this next clock was designed for one of TheWife's co-workers. Sitiquat explained to me what she wanted but I asked her to draw a sketch for me.



This is the picture she sent to me in an email and I tried to use it for her clock but because all the elements are joined together, I couldn't get the fill colors separate. So I started going through my inventory of art and came up with this. I used The Bottomless Heart in place of a solid heart and I think it gives a ribbon type look as a bookmark.


She wanted a digital clock instead of a dial clock but I forgot that when I was doing the initial work. 

If you're interested in what the dial face looks like.....


These are my two most recent and I'm currently #workinon a few other things.

See anything you like?

It Was A Grand Visit

TheWife and I went over to Charles' and Darcel's to visit earlier today. 
Kiah greeted us at the door.

 

Ava was brushing her teeth.


Samuel was out cold.


They are growing so fast!


After Samuel woke up, I asked if I could take his picture and
he said "NO!" A few minutes later he was standing in front
of me and I called his name several times and he ignored me.

So I took this one.


Kiah drew the picture of the house and girl 
Ava traced her hand and made a girl out of it


Samuel got to go to the library to return books and DVDs and also
to get some new stuff.



Upon returning, it was time for each of them to claim their spots
for viewing a DVD of their choosing.





Aaaah yes...such a Grand visit.

Back At It

I'm happy to report that I am back to working on past and future projects, and getting myself on a schedule that will work for me....not easy. Most of the graphic designing is done late evenings into the wee hours of the mornings, so my daytime is mostly frame work...cutting, glue, testing to see what works and making necessary changes.

A new project I have is another custom 8x8 shadow box clock. This is a digital clock design that should be done soon...the clock is currently in shipment to me. Once it's here it won't take long to finalize everything. As you can see in the picture below, the facial molding is being put in place. 


Once the moldings are in place and secure, I will cut the glass for the front of the clock. The frame won't be painted until the glass is cut.

Yes, I cut glass too

I'll be working on this and other frames I have in waiting. They will not all be clocks. 

If you remember, I had sold two 8x8 shadow box clocks but didn't post any pictures because one was a gift item and I was waiting for permission to post the pictures trying not to spoil the surprise. But one of them was another Rise Above design.

The one on the right is the gift clock


I'm going to get an update on the status of the gift clock because I really would like for you to see it.

I'm also updating my website as I go along and will soon have clocks for sale and please don't forget to visit my online store.

If you have any questions or comments...I'm all ears!
