nope...not a vase...

I fooled you...
I agree...the peek did look like a vase but...

it's a lamp!
a 2 piece art parts cutie...
to make it very dimensional...



the lamp base is colored with weathered wood distress stain & the "NEW background" was stamped with Ranger's cobalt archival...

the extra art parts lamp shade is covered with tim's"crowded attic" paper & inked & stamped with bundled sage distress ink...
as is the ruffled trimmings...

and you turn the lamp on with the chain tassel...
ok...it doesn't really turn on...it's just there for effect!
LOL...

any comments now?

as always...

make art!
wendy
ps...as the saying goes...
you ain't seen nothin' yet!

You say 'lamp base', I say 'vase'. LOL Hey, we all know how versatile your art pieces can be so let's stretch the imagination as see what else this could be. How about a hot air balloon? The lamp shade is also the flower pot? Or a stand on which to place the foot of Wendy's man reaching upwards. Yup, gonna be a creative day...at least inside my gray matter! lol

I saw that was a lampshade, but certainly could be a vase, and very likely some other things. And I really do LOVE that tapestry background!

papillon said...

whatever you say Lady Wendy. but what i say is: let's get over with the CHA, so we too can have some fun with these! ;)

ps: i feel like a child who has to make an effort being good... waiting for Santa.

jill said...

It is a very cute lamp base,but could be a vase...in true Wendy style....and the lamp shade could be a pot for your beautiful flowers too. I am more in love with your new tapestry background than ever...so glad you kept it!!!

I love the lamp! I cannot wait until it comes out. Very sneaky of you to only show the bottom. I wondered what was on top and about the tassle, but I couldn't but it together (I spent too long creating)! Your artwork is so cute and I cannot wait to see more. Thanks.

Kathy Eddy said...

How cute and clever is that! Keep 'em coming!

Lori said...

CUTE! Love this idea! Can't wait for these to be available!

Completely adorable Wendy...just like you! Karen :)

Marjie Kemper said...

Love that lamp and I bet you could find a mini light bulb and do a niche back there. The chain tassle and ruffle are darling!

Debby said...

jackib said...

Wendy - you just keep coming up with the cutest ideas! Who would think to use the tassel for a lamp switch? Love your art!!

Wanda H said...

Wow! I didn't even notice the "vase" really a lamp... I thought it was the way the background was and not something dimensional. Way, way cool!!!! I still need to know if you now have art parts with white paper???

Missusg said...

Susan Leslie said...

I guess a lamp last night, thanks Wendy, I love the lamp. but what is that on the other side of the flower pot. I love the Tim's crown on it!

Winnie said...

You got me! Love the lamp! The pull chain is very clever! I can't wait to see your new stuff out.
