Patti Edmon Altered Attic: Door Hangers can be Fun!

Door Hangers can be Fun!

My best friend's daughter is 22 and she came to my rescue a couple of weeks ago - my studio went from the bomb/shrapnel decor to being sorted, mostly de-cluttered and while still messy, slowly but surely each category has its place.
Marina is also moving into a new apartment with new roommates, one a long-time friend and the other a newer acquaintance. I decided it would be fun to make a door hanger for her room so one side is inviting - today I am a princess. The two square images are from a Debrina Pratt inchie sheet - it's fabulous fun.

The other side is still fun but suggests that a little solo time is in order. When she and Hannah disagree on something their catch phrase is "Never Everything." How cool is that?! And the best part is the fun I had making it - I've had a few hotel door hangers for, well, a long time:)

I so enjoyed a small, fairly quick project as well. I've been so focused on the 12" x 12" canvases that are to be at New Editions Gallery on August 8th that I haven't done much playing. I shouldn't say I haven't been experimenting - I have pushed myself creatively on these pieces and I'm even proud of the results. I'll post photos when I'm done.

For now, though, it's time to squeeze one last lake trip in before school starts. My daughter has dance intensive all next week and then, well, no more sleeping until 9 or 10:00!

I hope you are all enjoying the last of your summer - if your locale is anything like mine you haven't had to turn your oven on to feel the blast of heat! Ahhhh, my cove awaits:)

Like you I enjoy quick projects and this one you've created is a perfect little work of art! As for the photograph, perfection!

That's an adorable door hanger and so sweet of you to make it as a thank you for her helping de-clutter your craft space. I know you both must have had fun.

My door hangers are too old. I think I need to have a new one. Those door hangers are perfect. I am curious about the picture that you post.

I don't know why, but the title, "Door Hangers Can be Fun" just makes me laugh! I guess I have a weird sense of humor, or the heat's getting to my brain. Yet, you door hangers DO look like fun!
Congrats on your show! I would love to come to the opening, if you can give me directions to the gallery.

OK, Ms. Sharmon, you outed me - I can write until the cows come home but sometimes when it comes to headlines, well, I have to wait for them to leave again!

I love your door hanger Patti! it's both fun, and beautiful - as is that shot of the lake. Gorgeous. Glad you got a few days away, and hope this week's early mornings aren't too taxing! xo K
