past auction items



copper patina'd madala examples



class art project

It's that time of year again, the school auction......class art projects need to be made and auctioned off. This year the 5th graders are going to be learning about Mandalas. They are going to draw their own mandala and trace it onto a square of copper to emboss. The embossed piece will be brushed with a sulfer product to cause a patina. The patina'd Mandalas will then be attatched to a pine frame that will become a border for a chalkboard. This should be a little more hands on for the 5th graders and also appeal to some of the kids who don't feel like they are the best drawers. These projects are usually time consuming but I must confess, I just love doing them!

Christmas delivery!

work in progress....need to add rope to frame and wooden pieces for calendar

2012! Happy New Years

Happy New Years! I'm starting the year off with blogging. I havn't been on here in a year or so.....I'm overdue :-)
2011 brought fourth many changes. I started my own business Artseadesigns! I've incorporated all of the things I love to do. Mural painting, faux finishes, cabinet refacing, custom wood burned and painted calendars and art pieces and pet portraits. I couldn't tell you which was my favorite, but I can tell you painting is my passion. I feel so blessed to share this passion with people.
So, that being said I am hopeful for a successful 2012. I look forward to the challanges and change that are coming. I'm learning to accept change as it is essencial for our growth.
I'm excited about the goals and dreams the Besedics as a family share.. I am so grateful for the love of my family and friends. Many many blessings to you and yours in 2012!
