Red Riding Hood Revisited

A while back I posted about my wolf for a Little Red Riding Hood cane I was working on. Then there was nothing more about it.  Well I finished the cane and I just wasn't that happy with it.  I figured the best thing to do was to just step away from it for a while.  It worked.  When i created the pendant I didn't think that Red Riding Hood stood out enough from the background.  I decided to go around her and other things in the picture with a needle tool.  Then added a touch of paint.  The end result has a carved wood look to it.  I liked it.  For the necklace I made some beads that say " the sweetest tongue has the sharpest tooth".  Another pendant says "As you're pretty, so be wise; wolves may lurk in every guise".

I have plans for some more fairy tales.  My neice, Erin, has helped me with the sketches that I will be basing the canes on.  Stay tuned for those.


  1. Oh my goodness - this is truly amazing - you are SO TALENTED.


  2. Wow! That is all, Wow!!! :)

  3. I loved the carved effect the minute I saw it. I wanted it so badly. And I think what you did with the beads and words is brilliant.

  4. Julie, it's simply fantastic! It's funny that you would share this today as I'm in the midsts of hopping around to see what everyone created for the "Challenge of literature" blog hop I just took part in. You're a sweet bonus round I guess :)
