HAF artist feature - Lisianblue

Come with me, let's take a walk and do some window shopping.  Kris is an amazing artist with 2 shops on HandmadeArtists.com and I can't wait to show you what she creates...
Her first shop is Reflections...and it's full of glass, and light, and color...

Just check out this Hand Painted Ginger Jar.  Here is what Kris says about this jar..."Based on a wonderful place I lived for 11 years, this art glass piece stands on it's own. I could sit on my front steps and see the valley for miles and miles, "Sanctuary" is my somewhat stylized and minimized view. The mountains here often turn blue at dusk.
This elegantly shaped glass vase has been carefully hand painted with quality glass paints. the greens range from a transparent emerald green to a frosted kiwi green and an opaque light green. Transparent royal blue with very pale frost blue, medium frost blue and an opaque light blue. Transparent amber trees.
5 1/4 inches tall and approx 3 1/4 inches wide. A tad over 10 inches around at the widest point."

How about this Clear Glass Tetrahedron Pyramid.  It contains red and pink beads, and I can see any baby (or adult) just spending time turning it over and over and watching the changes of the beads.  This piece comes in a special handmade gift box with glittery hearts and a ribbon tie.  If you would like to have some special keepsakes inside your pyramid, just leave Kris a comment, she loves custom orders, and your satisfaction is very important to her.  Her next shop is also on HandmadeArtists.com and is called Lisianblue.   This is where you will find all her creations made with yarn and fabric, just like this...
 
...very cute Girls Knit Sweetheart Cap.  I also love to knit (and crochet) but creating patterns like these hearts are not easy, at least not for me. :0)  But Kris did a wonderful job.  And she used my favorite yarn, Caron Simply Soft.  "This sweet light weight cap with hearts all around will fit a variety of ages. With it's 16" circumference, it will fit very young children to teens and adults. - it stretches comfortably up to 22" . The 9" length allows the band to be cuffed to help keep those ears warm for those smaller heads."
 
This last item I just love...I love quilts and I love vintage, and this Romantic Vintage Inspired White Quilted Wall Hanging satisfies both for me.  "Vintage inspired white quilted wall hanging with hand embroidered art nouveau designs within hand quilted hearts make up this beautiful original wall hanging.
White on white hand embroidery work is highlighted with light greens, a bit of very pale blue and pink. The one cross stitched square has very light yellow, pink, and green.
This romantic wall hanging is made from a quilt that I made 11 years ago that was cut into different size blocks and pieced back together. Embellished with buttons and beads to cover a few very tiny stains. ( about the size of a mall pin head.) More buttons and beaded hearts were added for aesthetics.
This unique wall hanging measures 29.5" x 32" not including the white ribbon hanger which can be altered for length.
**Note: there are a couple of small stains on the back, and 2 heart shaped patches to cover 2, 1/4" holes,
Comes with white washed dowel with 1/4" ribbon hanger. "
You can also visit Kris on twitter and her blog, where you can learn even more about this talented artist.
Be blessed,
