**Today is the last day to sign up for the Artist Trading Card swap if you want to do it! I haven’t had that much interest, so unless I get a couple more people today or early tomorrow, it’s going to be postponed until further notice … go here and sign up if you want to participate!**
Rather than go up to see my folks (because the roads were bad) they came to visit us and it was GREAT to have the grandparents play with Bunny and … give me some uninterrupted art time! I had a lot of fun experimenting with mixed media – I didn’t go too far out of my boundaries, but I did use paper, modge podge, thread, tulle and paint! I really like how it turned out. I tried it on a small square canvas and I’m liking the size so much that I think I’m going to do another in the same size, using Red’s compliment – green. What do you think about a “frisbee at the park” idea? I think it will be perfect. And what could work out better than using a button for the frisbee?!
It took a while to get all the pieces in the right place, and then gluing took some time just because obviously you have to glue one piece at a time, and the once everything was in place, I did another coat to seal any parts that had bubbled even slightly. I had originally intended to use a damask type of paper for the sky, but the store I went to had nothing of the sort and after I found the paisley pattern, I couldn’t think of anything else I’d like to use for the ground. The damask might have overpowered the grass. I’m hoping to find a green type of damask but we’ll see what happens! Have you done anything out of the ordinary this week? Oh wait … it’s only Monday. Haha. Anything you will be doing that’s out of the ordinary for the week? I started another painting over the weekend (Thanks to the folks) so I may even get an extra post in this week! Stay tuned 🙂
