Busy Bee

I have been busy again, which is so good for me. I become addicted to birds. It all started with those birds ornaments I was preparing for International Women's day, and as always, the more you work on something - new ideas flying through. I decided to create some more new faces, this time I carefully finished them off. I added nice details, and worked on noses, eyes, mouths as well. The biggest one, the one with the bird is going to be wall decor for now, but I am going to make another one for myself, as a necklace.

With my first birdies I used old faces I made looong time ago, and never used. With the new ones I experiment a bit with paints and glazing just now to see what will look best.

After a few layers of paint and golden distress it looks like it is made from wood, has this shabby chick feel about it and I love it. I am going to hang it on my kitchen wall.

This is my first "try out" series, I hope you will like it. It gives me such a joy to make them...I am still waiting for the rest of the components to arrive. I bought some nice gemstones to finish them off. I can't wait!

New name...

I had a bit of thinking lately and come up with conclusion I need to start use my real name some how. The soonest the better, learning from other crafty artists who sooner or latter had to "re-brand" their blog/site to connect it with their real name - I decided to do it sooner. As I am struggling with my real full name as it has double barrow surname, and somehow it just sound all too long for me, I decided to use a translation as well as my full name underneath. SO here it is, from now on I am the "Stone Studio". If I would like to translate my surname (the second part of it - Kaminska) it  would be "Stone"....it seems fair enough for me to use it that way...What do you think? I am struggling now with new banner and banner for facebook page. I don't know why, but it has this grey shade on the background despite the fact it suppose to be plain white...Everything is rather too grayish, I need to work on it more, but don't have the time just now...
