Project 7

This week I had a hard time coming up with an idea. 
 With all the things I want to do and try you wouldnt think that would be an issue. I hope my brain can keep fresh ideas coming for the next 45 projects.
This week I decided to try a new media. I have seen these inks around and thought I would like to give them a whirl.
For this project I decided that I would do this like a research project.
 I made detailed list of all the techniques I was going to try.
Made lists of the materials I would try... 5 different kinds of paper.
My plan was to try the different techniques with each of the papers and compare results.
After the first technique the other side of my brain took over and lists and written results were gone.

 Sure messed up alot of paper... teehee 

Lots of interesting things happen with this media.. that sure makes it fun to try.

Fashion under lock and key.

Those of you that know me well , know that I am not a "purse" kinda girl... I got a small wallet so I could carry it in the pocket of my hoodie. This little bag that I found last week could make me change my mind. It is so freakin cute!! Only problem is .. it doesnt really go with any if my hoodies.

Project 5 or Chronicles of a purple canvas

A while back I had a great idea and it was to begin with a purple canvas. After I painted it I couldnt remember what that great idea was. So this week I thought I would do something with that purple canvas. This project is twofold. The other part being to photograph the progress of the project.
First of all I made a loose sketch of my new idea with pastels
Then I went looking for materials.. oops two jars of medium dried up.
Ok. Found a jar of medium. Tearing paper and attaching with acrylic matte medium

Progress buy the end of day one.

Day two.. there is always a stage in a painting that I say... what was I thinking.. this was then.

Day 4 still a mess going on. I have to really concentrate on the push and pull of warm and cool colours, bright and muted, to make my compostion work. It reminds me of painting and also of a jigsaw puzzle.

I Love the sparkle it seems to have ... so lively.. but I think I will leave more underpainting showing next time. I think covering the whole surface gives too few quiet areas.

Taa Da.. this is the finished product.. It is 16 x20 inches.. and I keep wanting to call it a painting even though it was a collage. .. hmm painted with paper.

Friendly local tour guide

I had a chance to play with some of the photos I took while we were in British Columbia. This is one from Robert's Creek. That's where my friend Deanna lives. Lucky girl and I am so glad she took us to see this place. I never would have known it was there. I think I am going to make this one of a series of prints to hang on my wall.
