Growing in Art–Part Two

IMG_0831

Hello again  and Happy Easter!

This piece seems like a fitting way to start.  I was in a state of joy when I created it, in a place of geographic joy, and a with people who bring me joy!

Used lots of found and upcycled items in the construction–scrap wood, muffin papers, sari ribbon, and circuit board remnants.

Another piece on canvas panel.  Experiments with dripping Izinks ink, acrylic paints, stencils, ink pens, foam letters on corrugated cardboard colored with Shiva Paint Sticks, also used heated molded plastic, and Pico embellishers.  I am learning more about water soluble vs. non-water soluble as evidenced by smearing of some of my details.

I still like to upcycle certain used clothing tags and here is a batch I did at Christmastime.  It is a good way to use up all those little bits and bobs I have leftover from other projects.

Because who doesn’t love a pic of art supplies??!!

My latest on a canvas panel.  Mounted on an upcycled backing from a frameless glass frame.  I used modeling paste, a Patti Tolley Parrish stencil, Silks acrylic glaze, glass bead gel, Shiva Paint Stiks, a frame I filled with resin (and a worry doll), heat moldable plastic, a fortune from a fortune cookie, Pico embellishers, and well over a dozen layers.  At one point I was so disgusted with the whole thing that I covered 95 percent of it in black paint and then uncovered parts and continued on.  I really think that you have to hate your project at some point before you really get to something.  Or maybe that’s just moi….

In any case I wish you all a good day and I welcome all comments!

  1. I like the picture of the old Christmas cards….I have some which belonged to my granny. They seem to have a lot more character than the ones we get today!

  2. You may be interested in this which was on the BBC website a couple of days ago – it’s about Victorian Easter cards!

    • Those were some “interesting” cards lol–of course I’d love to get my hands on some of them. Maybe on eBay or at a tag sale. Thanks for sending me the link so I could see them.
