Wood Carvings

While we were in Vermont we found the Wilmington Antique and Flea Market!  What a wonderful find!  I bought some beads and some buttons but my bestest find was some salvaged wood carvings.  My granddaughter, Abby, is showing them off for you.

They are magnificent pieces of art in themselves but I plan to use them for printing on fabric.  Don't you think they will look fantastic printed on silk or velvet and them richly embellished?

I hesitated telling the seller my plans for the woodcarvings but when he started telling me that they were art, I agreed and told him that I was going to make more art with them.  He definitely had a reaction.  I thought he was excited about the idea that his salvaged art was going to be reproduced.  My husband thought he was horrified.  I prefer to believe my interpretation.  LOL

  3. Abby is a cutie! And those wood carvings would be great to do a stamping project with, can't wait to see what you do with them.

  4. Can not decide what is more beautiful your grand daughter or the art? I believe it is your grandaughter!

    Can not wait to see how you use these.
