Finally uploaded pictures from my camera for recent projects. I framed the two pieces I created for my office and here are some closeups of the textures. I had fun using tissue, string, modeling paste, cheese cloth, metal, and some pieces of painted paper towels.Align Left

Last Saturday had the girls over for scrapbooking and played with some burlap type ribbon and making grunge board look like rusty metal. I used the keyhole grunge board and coated it with modeling past to cover the diamond pattern that it had and to help with the look of layers of paint. Painted it with some orange and black paints and added some coarse pumice and then used a combo of blues and black to paint on the blue. I had my doubts that I could pull it off but am pleased with the results. Used one of my lady stamps for the eye peaking through. I believe I will post this on Etsy and I'm calling it The Beholder.

I also finally started looking at the videos for an online class I signed up for called Spill It!. I haven't started anything yet but I'm so excited that I finally know how to make drips. Sad to say I've been trying all wrong and now know at least one better way. Carmen in the instructor and I just love her colors and textures. Check out her art on Flickr.

Happy weekend...

The girls came over yesterday to scrapbook while I painted and burned pictures to cd for Misti from her son's, Jonathan, birthday. Haven't replaced my wireless router yet so had to go old school. Managed to take some pictures of some pieces I've completed recently but can't upload them yet. Here are some pics using my iPhone. They don't quite do justice but give an idea.

Stealing time

Well, work is definitely time consuming with new responsibilities but I am enjoying the challenges. Just need to clone myself. I have managed to do a few mixed media pieces. Here's the beginnings of two that I recently finished. Hopefully tomorrow there will be good enough light to take pictures of them.

I also signed up for an online class that looks like it will be a lot of fun. I'll have to post the link since this post is coming from my iPhone. My wireless router died so have to get a new one sometime this weekend so I can have my Internet back.
