~ Creating Lovely Primitive Background Art~ Proxxon Design team Project by Sherri Welser





~ Creating Lovely  Primitive Background Art~

Being an artist I enjoy creating from the simplest of things! This week's project is created from a simple block of wood and Proxxon Power Carver tool! The tool was easy to use and had a variety of cutting gouges. I wanted to create wood blocks with texture such as a  rubber stamp would offer, to then add some background interest for my artwork. Here is where using the Power Carver tool came in handy!
Check out the Proxxon Blog for more details on this fun project! 

Happy Creating!

~ Leaving You Puzzled~ Proxxon DT Project




~Leaving You Puzzled~

Earring Project

Here is a very fun idea that would be perfect for a small project you and your daughter/granddaughter can do together.  Depending on the age and if they are old enough to use the drill press supervised, it is a great time to spend together creatively! If they are too young you can handle the tool part of the project and they can have the fun of decorating! This is also a great opportunity to use up the puzzle pieces from those puzzles where  the pieces have been lost! So go grab some puzzle pieces and lets have some fun!!

Visit the Proxxon Tiny Tool Time blog for more details on how to create these very fun puzzle piece earrings!

~REVAMPING~ "Whats Old Becomes New Again" Proxxon DT Project by Sherri Welser

~REVAMPING~

"Whats Old Becomes New Again"




As many of you know who follow my projects, I LOVE to find old objects and make them "new" again. I was at my local ReStore and found this old Bakers Rack and thought it would make a great potting bench outside my new art studio! Before I started "ReVamping" it it was white, rusty and the wood block on top was stained and gross!  Come and see how I ReVamped this once ugly Bakers rack with a couple of supplies and a little TLC!
Enjoy!

~Vintage Embellishing Part 2~ Proxxon Tools Design Team Project by Sherri Welser

~Vintage Embellishing Part 2~

Welcome back to the second part of my vintage embellishment table project!! The reason why it is called "vintage" is because I wanted a project where I incorporated small old jewelry trinkets and charms and then that grew into adding inspirational messages and basically anything that held meaning to me I included. The other piece I made before this was actually an old church window and it did have a very Vintage feeling to it!


For More details on creating this fun and inspirational project visit the Proxxon "Tiny Tool Time Blog 

I also will be offering a full on line workshop in June on creatin gthese lovely repurposed peices!~ visit my website for more details coming soon at www.indigoearth.artfire.com

Vintage Embellishing~ Proxxon DT Project by Sherri Welser


~Vintage Embellishing~

Even before it was a "Thing" I was perusing garage and estate sales looking for fun items to reinvent! I would find all kinds of tables and do the faux marble tops, a church pew was placed in the garden for setting plants on,old bicycles with the metal baskets were planted with flowers and they became unique focals in the flower garden. I have always loved finding these treasures and turning them into  Garden Art! Last fall I found an old church window with beautiful lines and even though some of the glass was broken I had a vision! Recently I found both a long wooden table and an old  wooden sewing machine table( both inexpensive finds at my local ReStore) with the beautiful metal work on it and the word "Singer" across the bottom~ these all are on my radar now to make beautiful again and here you will see several of those items come to life!  Visit the Proxxon Blog to see the fun creations I will be embellishing!
