Boy, did this week fly by!At least I got a lot accomplished so I guess that's why it went so fast. This morning I have my 2ND piece that's going to Washington next week for the art show & sale I mentioned in my last post. This is a 10x10 canvas that is done with layers & layers of paper, gel medium, glaze, & a little rubber stamping. The image in the center was done with a sheer heaven transfer to tissue paper. I was very pleased with this one, particularly the colors. I didn't shoot pics of the sides of the canvas (unfortunately) but it is a wide gallery wrapped canvas & the sides turned out very nice too. Next week I will mail both of these off.
Wishing you all a wonderful & creative weekend!
This is the first piece of two that I did for an upcoming Art show & sale in Everett. Wa. This is being hosted by the 3231 Creatives Gallery. The show runs between July 15th & August 17th. All pieces are done in a 10x10 format. If any of you are in the Everett area, the address is: 3231 Broadway Ave. Everett, Wa.

Good Morning! I am featuring a mixed media collage this morning done on a 12x12 canvas. It is done with multiple layers of paper, gel medium & a bit of rubber stamping.
The image is a transfer to tissue paper using Sheer Heaven.
I am currently working on a couple of pieces for an upcoming show in Everett, Wa. next month. I'll share those pieces soon.
I did visit the automotive museum on the weekend & it was AMAZING! I have included a link to my Facebook pics in the event you'd like to take a peek. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2128617131887.2127748.1139713603
Happy hump day!
Good Saturday morning everyone. I hope you all have a great weekend planned. I am off to the Mullin Automotive Museum http://www.mullinautomotivemuseum.com/ this morning & I can't wait!
This morning I have a boat picture that I found at http://morguefile.com/ that I did a couple of PSE variations on. I do like the top one the best. The 3rd photo is a flower in my yard & the rose is also from http://morguefile.com/. The backgrounds & masks are from http://shadowhousecreations.blogspot.com/. Now....I would walk through my process with you but I go so many places with these pics that sometimes I forget how I even got there. I just keep playing & adding more layers, adjusting the hue, saturation & opacity. For some reason I tend to be drawn to boats in spite of the fact that I really have no desire to be on one nor in the water!
Happy Saturday to you all!
Good morning! Another damp day on tap, I see. I am loving it as it is damp but still very comfortable temperatures! I have been digging through years of items recently to determine what I can part with & what I can't. It's pretty bad when you have soooo much stuff that you forget some of the stuff you have.......like this LOVELY soap box I stumbled upon that I totally forgot we even had! It's been tucked away in a corner for probably the last 35 years. It dates back to 1897 or 1898 & it's in really nice condition for the age. It measures around 17" x16" x8". I cleaned it all up & that is where I will store my Grandmother's old crocheted pieces. I think they look so nice in there.
I also found a 1905 water heater tucked in a corner of my garage which was another thrill. I forgot we even had it! Once I get around to photographing that I will share that one with you too. I can't even find another one of those. I have only found brochures for them on sale on Ebay. I have more researching in my future!
Happy Monday to you all!
Good morning everyone! June is upon us & not without a little gloom this morning. The good news is...the gloom has vanished & the sun is out now.
I've been very busy preparing for a garage sale this weekend & still haven't quite made it through my Photoshop class. Knowing that I can work on it at my leisure is simply wonderful! I am going to wrap it up shortly. The problem is I am so excited about what I have already learned that I just keep experimenting. This morning I have some more statues (LOVE THEM!) that I have altered with various layers. My problem is...I go through so many steps that I forget exactly how I got there sometimes. I do know that my layers were set on "overlay" for both of these creations. The images are from my favorite site for free images http://morguefile.com/ & the backgrounds I use are from http://shadowhousecreations.blogspot.com/ & http://www.flickr.com/groups/734017@N25/pool/
