A Spring Journey with Joy Holder Northrop

I'm excited to introduce Joy Holder Northrop as a guest artist for 100 Proof Press!  She creates whimsical mixed media pieces that display a variety of techniques and materials.  I love the creative spirit she portrays in her artwork.  She runs an Etsy shop, autumnsensation, where her pieces are for sale.  Anyone for Croquet?  

I love how she created a shadowbox scene with a little hat on my favorite owl in front of the long tower row.  I can't wait to share the rest of her creations with you!  You can sign up for our newsletter, where I will be featuring several more of her works in the next week or so.  Just enter your e-mail into the box in the upper right corner of our website to say connected

"Spring Journey" - by Joy Holder Northrop
4" square and 1 1/2" deep

I took a Hallmark shadow box (it used to have some cliche about laundry inside it with a cheap plastic washing machine) and reworked it into its current form - a tiny, whimsical owl in a big, big city. He's on a spring journey. ;o)

Made with rubber stamps from 100 Proof Press, acrylic paint, vintage paper, a bit of glitter on the stars, washi tape and wood cut words. The back is white. There is a sawtooth hook for hanging as well as a built-in easel stand in the back. Plus, it can sit up on its own without assistance. Distressed around the edges, it is a charming tableau of whimsy. (I think I mentioned the whimsy factor already, but it bears repeating.)

You can connect with Joy on her Facebook Page, or in her Etsy shop.
