Sometimes, I think I bite off more than I can chew. This was one of those times. Matching china is difficult enough but this pattern is so well known, Royal Albert Old Roses.
I must admit, I was quite happy with my finished result.
"Stacey created matching floral design candles, both tapers and pillar to photos i sent her of my upholstery. They are not only breathtakingly lovely, they match perfect and that was a shock as the computer screen and the photo were not true to the colors of the fabric. I explained the colors 'live' and Stacey worked from that. Just amazing. What a fun and lovely touch to add to the room. I am a repeat customer and will be again. Classy work as per usual. Thanks!"
Nothing scares me more than something with a lot of personal meaning. This was that. She wanted 4 white ball ornaments with the "purple heart" war medal painted on each and the recipient's name and rank on the back. That mean each had to look like the one next to it.. I hung them with a broad purple ribbon.
Here's a set of candles I really enjoyed making. I used to quilt. and by that I mean, I made one. Then I remembered I'm not very good at sewing. But the patter was fun to work with, the colours soft and the result, I thought, very pretty.
This was a challenge. The client wanted pillar and taper candles to match her sofa. It's intricate pattern would be a bit of a problem. The second problem was that the colours would not recreate properly, The client said the were warmer than shown. Flying half blind, I dove in to create this custom painted set for her. I was so relieved when I received these words.
Candle Set to
Painted Snowflakes is grateful to have so many loyal clients from around the world. This day, the request was for custom painted and matching oil and vinegar bottles with hydrangea painted on them. I must say, it was hard to give these up.
There were two prints hanging on a bathroom wall. They were similar in style and colour. I received, by email, the above photo and asked I for a custom painted tissue box to match. Sometimes it can be difficult to match colours but this one, she said, was a success.
