New Handmade Artwork

There’s been a flurry of activity on my art desk these past few days. I promised myself I wouldn’t give up on my artwork and would finish new items in time for Christmas.

There are 100 items in my online ETSY Art Shop as of today…a long time goal of mine. Yay!

Here’s a look at some of the Christmas cards (instant download to print at home), art books, handmade Turkish design earrings, and Lupita ornaments. The Christmas tree ornaments are made from my miniature original watercolor paintings. I coat them onto mini canvases and add ribbons to create the ornaments.

It’s been joyous for me to have spent time immersed in art again. Sending wishes for a beautiful holiday season to you and your family.

Blessings,

Custom Blankets

My newest project is to create custom blankets for my boys. I wanted them to have something special with my artwork on it that they can use and enjoy. I started with two of my favorite photographs, then made the art portraits from there. These portraits are digital made by hand using my Apple pencil and the design program Procreate.

Then I added a background to each one – Japanese paper designs. Finally, I uploaded the finished paintings to Spoonflower online to be made into custom fabric. I chose the “minky” fabric for it’s soft and fuzzy quality. I was so excited when the fabric arrived! Wow, it’s so much brighter and more vivid than I even imagined. And the paintings look so cool in this large size.

The next step is to sew them into blankets. I’ll post again with the finished blankets…my hope is I can finish before Christmas.

Blessings,

Handmade Holiday Gifts – Order by December 15th for Christmas Delivery – This Week at Emily Lupita Studio

I love making handmade art, especially this time of year. The festive preparations for the holiday season give me so much inspiration. The Christmas tree is up and the beautiful handmade wreaths my mother made us are hanging on our doors. Every time I walk by them I smile and feel like my creative energy is being nurtured.
