Funky summer clutches on their way!!!

Well boys and girls.....we are nearly there, we have a new line of limited edition clutches on their way!
I am super super excited, as Cara (my fantastic sister) and I have been immersed in creating a fun, flirty array of bright, dynamic clutches, for the not so disconcerting fantastic females out there!

Our clutches are completely hand made by the Sillier than Sally crew with love.
They have a fab pocket, for cards and money, so you can ditch your wallet for your outing.
They also sport a clip to attach your house keys 2 for ease... so no searching for or losing them after a day or nights shenanigans.

Below is a sneak peak of whats to come.
Clutches will be for sale through a Face book page, that's coming soon.

I love a beautifully set up photo shoot...


...Beautiful high quality designer and vintage fabrics used...

Hope you liked our sneak peak at a small part of whats to come from the gang at Sillier than Sally.
More funky, fruity, and slightly off centre designs to come, so stay tuned and look out for the upcoming Sillier than Sally Face book page.

Painting of Chubby! New animal portrait.

So I am delving back into the world of animal portraits.
How I love our little furred friends....and to be able to create art work that captures their soulful eyes, spirit and cheekiness as commissioned art... well, in my opinion there is nothing better!

Here is Chubby's story.....
Chubby was a much loved rescue staffie, she lived a long life (against all odds.... due to numerous tumors and other major health issues and a habit of jumping off buildings), full of love, courage and gumption. Chubby died last Christmas.

For her owners she is a symbol of strength, determination and will power.

I was asked to commission a large canvas art work of her (as her owners had heard just how ridiculously awesome I am =) and I of course could not wait to get stuck into finding out all about Chubby and creating a large scale art work of her......So here she is...

Painting process - Layered acrylic and spray paint on canvas.
Layered vintage classical sheet music used in sections, the sheet music was a waltz from the 1940's
"When your hair has turned to silver, I will love you just the same."
The beautiful wording tugged at my heart, and so suited Chubby and how her owners felt about her.
In sections it had been torn and taped back together... alot like Chubby herself.

I am definitely excited about creating more fabulous animal portraits, (insert shameless plug) give me a yell or a bell if you or anyone you know is interested?

Talent!! - VazquezSounds Adele- Rolling In The Deep (Cover)

Kids these days, so talented!
Just sharing the inspirational love....

Three young siblings from Mexico are attracting heavy attention for their cover of Adele’s thumping pop anthem, “Rolling in the Deep,” to the tune of nearly 3 million YouTube pageviews in just 12 days.
Siblings Angie, Gustavo and Abelardo Vazquez — known as VazquezSounds — uploaded the video Nov. 10. Aside from netting massive pageviews, the video has helped the band’s recently created YouTube channel break into the top 40 most-subscribed channels for musicians in Mexico with 24,000 subscribers.
VazquezSounds has been featured on Good Morning America, CNN en EspaƱol and other media outlets.
Here’s a breakdown of each sibling’s age and musical talent, which is on display in the above video:
Angie: 10, vocals, Gustavo: 13, drums, Abelardo: 15, piano, guitar and bass

Hooray!! Finally, a new studio space!!

At long long last, I have a studio space that's big enough to spread out in,
and fit all my bits and pieces....I have A LOT of art related bits and pieces, ranging from vintage material, to half painted canvases, to a pretty fancy button collection, to random bits of vintage paper from the world over, to beads that I started collecting when I was 10, to a book collection dating back 100 years, to a fine collection of spray paints, to an interesting array of match box labels from India, Sweden, Austria and Germany......
I think I should stop here, I'm starting to look like a freak!

I am loving the space, and being able to create daily.
I am super super I thought Id share it with the blogasphere!

Life lately has been all about creating.
Life is just fabulous =)

The Sillier than Sally design label is getting its fair amount of attention lately.
Cara (my sister) and I are designing a fabulous wearable art and accessories line...starting with clutches
and bunting...moving onto jewelry soon.
The design line, is fresh, funky and a little bit fruity, it will be for sale soon at the markets and boutique shops...More to come on that in a later blog =)

In my excitement I have taken some photos of my new studio space, to some it may look slightly like my dads dining room/bar room....but that's just silly talk =) =) Its MY studio!
Our mascots and visitor's we have had recently.....

And yes in case you were wondering those huntsmen were the size of my fist.
Big fellas!

Well I have shared, now I am exhausted form all the excitement, and I'm off to my labba.
So much happening in the Sillier than Sally world.
Will talk again soon.
