Maine Nature Pendant - Real Birch Tree Bark

Follow me on Instagram and See my NEW CREATIONS for July! 

After a restful 4th of July week up to Camp I'm ready to create. I found some lovely Birch Bark during a walk in the Maine woods. The Bark comes from a fallen tree, that I found laying on the ground, so I picked it up in hopes of using it in a piece of Art. I only have a limited quantity of these, they have been selling fast!

I"ve been busy at the Portland Jetport this summer, looks like it's going to be a great summer.  Hope you are enjoying yours too!
Here's what I've been up to this week!
More Ideas with Original Maine Sea Glass!
When you have the Art resin all mixed up an you don't want to waste get creative! If you have been following me on Instagram you may of seen the LOVELY Full jar of original Maine Sea Glass that my Mom so graciously donated to me for my art. She has been collecting this glass for years along the Maine Beaches. Many are from hard to get to places by boat from her years of sailing. My favorite color to work with is the Teals and Blues but unfortunately there isn't a lot of it, so again it will be  created in limited quantities. I will be posting them periodically on my Kellie Chasse Fine Art facebook page, so head over there to check out the New Store I'm setting up on there to have a chance to grab one.

Deco Foil Adhesive and Gold Leaf


I wanted to share a fun project with you! There is a link below if you want to check out the Demo Video on Youtube! Don't forget to Click Subscribe and Like Button to see more new ones!

Getting to play with my inks are so much fun. I often do a lot of detailed paintings as well, but my enjoyment or creative side (I like to call it my creative brain vs my detailed brain) I find is my favorite way to paint. You can do both! 
Who am I kidding, my mother is a terrific detailed artist and while growing up I was always comparing my work to hers and of course since she taught me how to paint I was always looking for her input. Then I realized that wasn't my favorite way to paint. I often got frustrated comparing my work, but I it because I wasn't painting for myself? Do I really need to be so perfect? Do I want this to look like a photo? Sometimes yes and sometimes no. 

Alcohol inks are a way for me to loosen up and get back to my style.

The best thing about art is the creation. Be it abstract or detailed. Just depends on what direction you are headed that day. Or in my case what mood I'm in. I thank my mother for showing me the HOW.  And now that I've developed my own style (years and years of practice by the way) I can do both and I really enjoy bringing them both together in some cases. 

So I'm always looking to try new things and since I've been creating my Zen Disks and using a lot of mixed media I though I would try some gold leaf with my inks on Yupo paper.  This is an adhesive pen by Deco Foil. It's basically a glue "Pen". I imagine you would have a lot of control if you use the Gold leaf sheets, but I wanted to try a more organic approach with the gold leaf and use the Metal Flakes used for gilding.  

I was really happy with the final results, once I added the Gold Leaf to the finished painting, and I'm happy to share that it sold almost immediately after posting!

So here are the Referral Links for a few of the Products used in the video:

Don't dare to try Resin because of a Blow Torch?

I know some of you are interested in the Resin Course but may be a bit scared to try resin because of the Blow Torch. 

I use this simple little butane refillable torch - it's a bit like a lighter but with more power!
We had a few friends over the other night for a Fire Pit and I pulled out my little torch to start the fire and my friends hubby was like - "What's that, I need one!" 


They are pretty simple to use and refillable, but if it makes you a bit nervous you can always use one of those long reach lighters.
