52 weeks of Art Plates with Laura Fraedrich: Weeks 9 and 10

Greetings, iLoveToCreate® blog fans! I am excited to share the next two plates in my Art Plate series with you today!


Plate # 9– Be The Brightest Star
 
To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest ~Napoleon Hill
 
This quote has special meaning to me. If I had listened to everyone else and didn't follow the path that was right for me, I wouldn't be where I am today. This plate was a bit labor intensive. I used the sgraffito technique for the words so I could write smaller, since the quote is so long. I ended up with a big cramp in my hand, but it was worth it because I was happy with the look. I also used stamps from the Pen & Ink set by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, which was super fun. I am going to incorporate more stamps in my plate going forward.
 

 Plate #10 – Gypsy Bird

This one is just silly....it materialized from a conversation I had with a friend of mine (I explain the story on my personal blog  – The Peculiar Palette – if you're interested in hearing more about it). The quote is by Reba McEntire, but it's something I could picture myself saying.

Both plates were made using Duncan® OhFour® Bisque plates, Cover Coats™, French Dimensions™ and Pure Brilliance®

Until next time! 
Laura

It can be worn across multiple settings; a typical epitome of the rolex replica sale casu-formal type. The fake rolex sale casual aura in straightforward, unrestricted stature with a subtle yet noticeable contrast! A robust look that replica watches uk fits your daily formal and informal dress codes! A Seiko is always a Seiko, whatever name you might put on it. So there's no doubt regarding the breitling replica sale being a first class performer in a unique, non-homage J-pop design. The J.Springs name is still comparatively new to most of the people; it's only the ardent replica watches sale enthusiasts who are aware of it fully. It is a common question that why Seiko Japan opted for this trade name, to which, the answer is that rolex replica uk Seiko wanted to get started an entirely new palette without any readily noticeable Seiko traits.
