Welcome to my blog! I am an artist who works from home, and my favorite medium is encaustic painting. Encaustic painting is an ancient art of painting with colored wax.
I also love crafting with fabrics, natural beads, scrapbook papers and polymer clay. To purchase my original pieces, come visit me on Ebay under kathleenkennedymason. http://myworld.ebay.com/kathleenkennedymason

The only way I know to overcome creative block is to create something totally different. I enjoy playing with fabrics and beads. This is the first jewelry box I covered.
I used velvety ribbon to cover the raw edges of the fabric. After I made this, it occured to me that I could just fold the fabric to create clean edges. This is my second box.
I love making these fabric covered jewelry boxes, but they take all day long. The next one will be purple and white. I have everything I need to start it, but I put it off because they take so much time to complete. Someday...
