I'm trying to finish up some Work In Progress pieces and I started some new Folk Art Dolls. Once these are done, I will be putting away the Art Dolls for the Summer and really focusing in on my drawing and painting techniques. I'm really looking forward to it. However, you might see one or two little creatures pop-up here and there over the Summer! LOL
Look at the one in the splits...Man I wish I could do that! LOL I use to be able to do that...not anymore!
Here are some pieces that I have finished. These little guys will be going in my Etsy Shop on Wednesday Night, so make sure you check them out at http://www.crowhavenfarm.etsy.com/
Now ... how are you guys doing with the Art Journals that all of you should be keeping? LOL Well, this weekend I have been playing and having fun with some new techniques. Make sure you try these...the technique works on canvas, journal pages, watercolor paper, cigar boxes, etc... Absolutely fun and wonderful outcomes!
Elmer's Glue is our FRIEND! Below you will see the Big Cracks it gives on your pages!
Now this technique will make your pages look like the Paris Subway!
Use Old Magazines for this technique!
Here is the cover of my Altered Book that I'm using in my Workshops over at www.handsandheart.ning.com. I used modeling paste and used my rubber stamps to get the images to pop off the cover! I absolutely love Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints...Just look at the warm colors they have...ohhh la la!
Here are some sketches and a journal page I did today. The first one I did in charcoal pencil and added Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Pad to the page to give it depth! I have a long way to go, but I'm learning everyday and so enjoying this new journey!
Well, now that I have probably exhausted you all...GET UP AND CREATE ART, DRAW, PAINT, SCREAM, DANCE and MAKE ART NO MATTER WHAT IT IS...MAKE IT and LOVE IT!
