CJS 2014 tutorials continue to be enlightening. Sometimes the technique is not necessarily new but a twist has been added that brings art up to an whole other level for me. The theme is Everyday Household Objects and they are always available and I am amazed at people's inventiveness. The background for the opening photo, left hand page, is good old masking tape.
Stencil Girl Club has been so enlightening and the gals in the facebook group are very encouraging and helpful. There are video tutorials for members that have been worth the membership just in themselves. I used the tree stencil on the right hand page of the opening photo but I outlined it with a pen and then filled it in with a water soluble graphite pencil. The wall/window stencil is actually on both pages. It is pretty subtle in the left page. I originally intended to just do the one page and had 'protected' the right hand page which had some smears and smudges on it. When I uncovered it I just kinda continued with the momentum. lol
FOG gals are working on transfers today and I have to admit that transfers are not my favourite mixed media technique. I found my earlier try very fiddly and time consuming. I'm too impatient to rub off the backing. But they are a useful tool in the artist's tool box. So I tried something different.
No picture as I swiped the wrong side of the plastic sheet and got a smeary mess on my hand! :O
I'll be curious to see the results that the Calgary girls achieve. I'll be looking forward to their post and I hope they had as much fun as I did!
It has been a terrific Tuesday! I had quite a trip!
