Art to Art

Erin C. Carr is young artist working and traveling through the real and imagined. Currently living in Southern Arizona.

The wax isn’t working as well as I was hoping…. The leaves still change color and become fragile breaking off….

I am supposed to show work to someone on Sunday. I’m not sure what to do.

Whittling, Whistling and Working

There was a third mini eye, but after looking at the photos I want to re work the eye, it’s a little sloppy. But as soon as that’s done and the sachets are put together I will post them for sale on my Etsy.

I’m also working on a couple bigger ones. I have the eye sewn for one and two big creosote branches waxed. I”ll get on embroidering another eye and putting together some more materials. I still want to use some beads, I want to use some snake bones as beads but I’m just waiting for the right guardian to use them on.

Mini Guardian - Blues

This one I waxed the paper after I was done painting it…. I’m not sure how I like the look, but I think it’s cool because I can scratch a symbol into the wax on the back. :)

Again thinking about adding a hanging sachet to this one as well, filled with protective herbs. If I had all the oils I needed I could have added it to the wax. maybe further down the line.

Charcoal, watercolor paper, watercolors, wax, creosote, hemp rope.

Mini Guardian - Green/Brown

I am thinking about adding small sachets of protection herbs that will hang under the hoops.

Part of an envelope I made. Didn’t want to show her full address so I can only show a corner of the envelope.

So it’s been a few days since I dipped a piece of creosote in wax. The color changed just a bit but you can see it’s still super flexible.

Almost all sewn together, just a few stitches left. Today or tomorrow I’ll start on the embroidery. #mandala #quilting #patchwork #art

Tell me what you all think. The Guardian Eyes will be up there as soon as I know if the wax will work out or not.

These inktense blocks are not quite as permanent as they lead you to believe….

Dipped a small bit of creosote. I will wait a week or so and see how well it works out.
