Oh, the happiness! My lovely Angel Rex, front and center on Threaded Canvas‘s July box lineup…my heart may burst from my chest in an explosion of joy. As you can see, Rex is in amazing company…check out those SWEET t-shirts and stickers and etc. Daaaaaaaaang!!
Incidentally, if you’re on facebook and want to share/etc this image to try and win a July box (or just show people the awesomeness) go for it. Here’s the post.
Yep, I made an Angel Rex tray. He didn’t stick around long, I can assure you, he was snapped up pretty quick…but in the time I shared with him, I loved him.
You might notice some black streaks or faint smudginess in the red of the tray. That’s because I used a block print of Rex as an experiment. Not surprisingly, the ink smudged! I would caution anyone against decoupaging a block print for this reason. If, like my little rex tray here, the piece still looks pretty nice with streaking, go for it. But I would not recommend the approach if you desperately want a crisp, clean-looking piece. Gritty pieces only!
This guy is one of everyone’s all-time favorites, and it’s easy to see why. You just gotta love Rex!!
You may recognize Rex from my block print series post here. These babies will be with me at Wesselman’s Nature Center for Art in the Wild on Saturday April 5, and again on Saturday April 19 at the Earth Day Art Crawl on Franklin Street!
