An action shot!

SAMSUNG CSC

This was one of the “Action” shots that did not make it into the Miami magazine,  It is one of my favorites.  I was so nervous having the photos taken  but this one captured me in a moment of mark making!

I know you don’t see my face but you do see my page!

A Rolled Art Journal

This journal was designed a little differently. I ripped muslin into four foot strips and then the same with some used underpaper and alternated them, attaching them with staples at one end.

I gessoed both sides of the muslin scraping and pushing it into the fibers.

The journal is meant to be rolled up.

Adding depth to the already started pages

The start of the journaling

This is a fun sized journal to work in and I like the different surfaces.

I used Pebeo Paints, Gesso (of course), Scribble Sticks, Neocolor II, sprays, Stains and paint pens

This is a journal that I designed for a workshop a couple of years ago and I love coming back to it and adding bits n pieces.

Cruise to Alaska Anyone?

I last taught on a Cruise to Alaska in 2015 and am excited to be teaching again this August.  Alaska is such a beautiful place and of course so very different from Florida, lol

Week 3 – Gelli Plate

I love using my Gelli Plate to make anything and everything.  I ave made pencil cases, bags, wall art, books and this weeks project was a shaped book.

Week 2 of Where Paper and Fabric Collide

Our word this week was Luggage Tag, which was handy as I am traveling next week so I can use it.

 

A New Year and a challenge

Happy 2018 to everyone.

It’s a New Year and time for me to make and share art. The easiest way for me to be consistent is to be accountable to someone other than myself!!

 

Introducing #wherepaperandfabriccollide a year long challenge between myself and Christine Escanes of Creative Textile Mastery.

Spooky Halloween Art Journal

 

 

Halloween is one of my favorite “Making” Seasons.  This month I decided to use one large parent sheet of watercolor paper to make this journal for spooky halloween images and Edgar Allen Poe quotes, just general mischief and mayhem!!!

I used Arches cold press watercolor paper, Distress Stains and Golden Fluid Acrylics
