Patti Edmon Altered Attic

Friday, August 6, 2010


I've already established that door hangers can be fun (yes, Sharmon, you know they can:) So, I'll just say that in the midst of a deadline for a gallery show, for which I am not yet prepared, I find myself distracted by fun. Not that a mixed media canvas isn't fun, but I don't have the seasoning to separate creativity from the thought that a date is looming large. I'm in the midst of my third 12x12 and I really love them; for me they are a larger project so making door hangers is like instant gratification, one of my favorite things!

Here's the one I made for Al, my nickname for my lovely daughter Alice, who never ceases to amaze me...

They do look like fun! Yes. Instant gratification means a lot when preparing for shows! I remember it well, 30 shows a year! How did I do it?

fun indeed - I especially like the dangles! (And of course Alice's pretty face peering out.) Which side asks for private time? they both are inviting to me :)
These would be fun gifts - do you plan to make them to sell, too? They'd be a popular and unique gift for the holidays, I bet.

Well isn't that just a special thing. I have never made a door hanger before, so this one made me giggle. And I could just hear the little clicks and jingles the trim must make. Glad you had a small break. You probably needed it.

Yes, these door hangers rate quite high on the fun-o-meter! I hope your pieces for the show are progressing well; when do they have to be finished? May the force be with you!
