New Holiday Cards!

Ready to get a head-start on the holiday season? How about sending some original abstract paintings as your Christmas cards?

Offered at a significant discount (considering that these are original artworks!), you can send something one-of-a-kind this year instead of computer-generated mass-produced cards from a “super store”. Also, all of my cards are ready to be personalized, I can even write a message in them and send them out for you!

Last year, customers told me that their recipients actually framed their cards to use as holiday decor!

Since I just added these to my shop today, I wanted to share them with you. Please check out all my holiday items here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MusicalColorStudio?section_id=13821308

Some more cards that are still available after last year’s sales:

New Hand-Painted Tote Bags!

Now available on my Etsy shop, Musical Color Studio:



To give you a step-by-step process, here is a description of how I make a hand-painted tote bag….

1. Buy yards of fabric, wash the fabric, iron out the wrinkles in the fabric, cut out each bag and its straps.

2. I spend time thinking up and planning the design for the bag. I usually sketch a concept, mix paint colors, experiment, etc. For each design, I also cut out my own stencils and patterns to use while painting! (Which means everything is exclusively designed by myself, the artist, and I use no mass-produced images or material to create the bags)

3. Then I paint the bag (which takes me at least 2 hours, minimum, depending on the size and design).

4. Once the paint has dried and I heat set it, I then sew the bag and straps to turn it into a final product, ready for you to use!

More bags are available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MusicalColorStudio?section_id=11645060
