I also have a thing for fairies. They are so whimsical and magical…. anything with wings fascinate me actually.
This piece may be my favorite so far. I used layers of paint, paper, watercolor pencil, ink, magazine clippings, buttons and beeswax. I love the colors in this, they are some of my favorites!
What can I say? I have been on an Asian kick lately, whether it is with my cooking or painting.
I love my Geisha Girl! Her kimono and fans are made from layers of printed papers, and everything else is painted with acrylics. I have shaded everything with a metallic bronze acrylic to add a glow, and I love how it gives the jade background a patina that looks much like tarnished copper.
I love the idea! Something to carry around to jot down ideas, work with new techniques, and just play in every day! WOOHOO!
My brother-in-law bought me this beautiful journal for Christmas several years ago. It is made completely from recycled handcrafted paper. I love it!! However, I had no idea what to do with it….. until now. The pages are very heavy, much like watercolor paper. It was completely free of any sort of decoration, a perfect canvas for the imagination! And, of course I had to start by prettying up the cover a bit =)
(I had to get my messy table in there too, hubby just doesn't get the organized chaos of art…. I actually cleaned it up a bit for the photo)
I cannot wait to get started!! I will probably be journaling this online too, it's always good to have a sounding board, and what better than the world-wide-web for that??
Off to paint I go!
