My Friend's Studio


My friend Vicki of Rusty Rooster Vintage has a brand-new art studio. I wanted to make her a special decorator tag. (I know you must be swooning by now while looking at her space!)



Look at the close-up!

A few weeks ago, I purchased commercial graphics to create personalized digital art for my Etsy store. Then, I got the idea that I wanted to make something in celebration of Vicki’s new studio. First, I created this graphic with her initial in a harlequin design and, of course, I needed to use a rooster (he’s peeking out from behind her initial.)


Then, my husband (who rocks!) rusted this washer for me to put on her tag....You see, I had to have something “rusty” to be in-keeping with her theme. Finally, coffee-stained cheese cloth completed the tag for an added touch of “vintage.” Enjoy your studio, Vicki! I know it will be tons of fun!


I am linking this to the Graphics Fairy because the rooster came from there!


And I hope you'll all visit Vicki--she has an amazing blog and is a super neat person!!!

Vicki's studio is amazing! I wish mine looked half as organized! She will love her pretty new tag that you made her! The colors are perfect, and the rusted washer is such a cool addition! You are such a sweet friend!!

Vicki said...

Cindy you are THE BEST!!!! I just love you to pieces. You are so sweet to feature my studio here and I'm in love with my tags. The rooster with my initial is my favorite...and yes I noticed the rusty washer immediately! I also love the sweet giggle tag reminding me that making art should be fun and to keep it all in perspective. Your sweet tags were the first thing I hung on my garden gate which has finally made it on the wall. I do a post this weekend. So blessed by your friendship. Thank you!

Faye said...

Beautiful tag, Cindy, and how perfect for Vicki's beautiful studio. I'd be afraid to let go and do messy art in a room that neat, but then I'm probably messier than most artists. Happy Sunday, Cindy.

I keep telling Vicki I'm going to show up on her door step so I can craft with her in this lovely space. La

Vicki said...

Come on over ladies! For the record, I do keep it neat so far but I have a secret...most of the mess is in the adjacent room and closet (our office). That is where I keep many supplies hidden just a few feet away. It helps tremendously. The studio is our old living room and the first room you see in the house.

Terry said...
