Seems as though I’m spending more time on Facebook lately than posting on my blog. I realize that many of you do not have a FB page, so I wanted to show a couple of things I’ve been playing with in my studio. That is, when I have time away from my job. That’s a funny phrase to say out loud, because I don’t seem to have much of that in my life lately. Ahhh, the woes of a full-time assistant trying to be creative and find time to make art. Remember that balance thing I’m striving for? Well, I continue to reach for it and all I can do is accept what it is and maybe I need to stop trying so hard and let it go.
We move on…
Playing with my Gelli Plate in my journal using stencils. Lots of sprayed layers with fabric sprays (same ones I used in this post). Checkerboard duct tape on the bottom and some doodles to the sides. Love this depth effect. Stencil by Carolyn Dube.
Doodling inside traced stencils with a black fine marker. Using Prisma colored pencils and watercolors. Bottom stencil by Michelle Ward. Inspired by Michael Trent, new Creative Team Member of StencilGirl.
My favorite. Playing with stencils in the background and making image transfers on top using old photos of my parents. Stencil by Carolyn Dube.
Playing around with this photo in Picasa.
Finally, I leave you with a photo I captured of a Snowy Owl just outside of our town at Plum Island. I had never seen an Owl in my life. People come from all over to the sanctuary here for bird watching. Some days it’s like a paparazzi with all the people and the cameras. And, oh, by the way…. the Eagles have landed. No, seriously, the eagles (the bird, not the band), have migrated to Plum Island. I’m hoping to get some good photos of them; I’ll let you know how that goes.
Just wanted to keep in touch with my peeps. I’ll be back soon with another Blog Hop with StencilGirl.
Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you.
