Sun and moon wall art collection

Introducing my new collection of sun and moon wall art. These celestial pieces are great for those who like whimsical decor, inspirational art, spiritual art, new age art, nursery rhymes art, baby nursery decor, beach house art and mixed media assemblage, just to name a few.

All are hand painted with my original designs on 5 inch round wooden plaques with a sawtooth hanger on the back. And, of course, they’re all blinged out because I’m all about the bling. Each one has its own personality, so let’s take a look at them.

Dream Moon

A classic full moon painted mostly white with silver metallic accents and the word “dream” written on her face. There are three little stars on one cheek with a crystal inside of each.

Blue moons are usually rare but you can enjoy this one every day. Painted blue with a glowing white center, she has a sweet expression as she looks up at the heavens. She also has three silver stars on her face with crystals inside.

It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to create new fun whimsical art after being sidelined by my broken ankle. But lately I’ve been getting back into the swing of things and was inspired to try something new—my Radiant Sun assemblage wall art.

Gathering recycled items for a sun wall art assemblage

I like to collect odds and ends from thrift stores and this old wall clock caught my attention. Better yet, it was only $1!

I decided to combine it with interesting bits of hardware found while rummaging in my father’s workshop. I also dug around in my own collection of craft items for gems, sequins, crystals and glitter. Because even though this is recycled art, I have to put my blingy spin on it.

Combining and arranging the pieces

Using an astrological map as the background, I played around until I came up with a face I liked. For the eyes I used a plastic bottle cap, random hardware piece, BBs, gems and crystals. An allen wrench serves as the nose. And the mouth is made from washers, a bell and more BBs.

On top of the glass more weird hardware pieces are glued on to accent one eye, along with sequins and crystals.

I painted the outside of the clock in the colors of the sun (red, orange and yellow).

And I used two different types of rusty nails for the sun’s rays.

Adding sparkle to the radiant sun

The best part for me is going to town with the embellishments because when it comes to sparkle, more is definitely better. And you can see I’ve used lots of different types of glitter, crystals, gems and fabulous sequins that sparkle endlessly.

And the result is a fun, cheerful, smiling sun that shines no matter what the weather is like outside. You can find it for sale in my Etsy shop.

Here’s a look at some of my past sculptures. And remember, I’m also available to create a custom piece of art just for you!
