Day 6- Mermaid Painting in Progress

About a year ago I took a class from Kat McBride (Kat Can Paint) on drawing and painting mermaids.  She is done in acrylic.  This is one I was working on for DH, but never finished.  Maybe I will work on it this weekend…

Another Face Spread

I think this was my last, or my second last spread I did before quitting Effy Wilds BOD/BOD class…

I Have a Secret…

… Well, maybe not so much a secret, but something I haven’t talked very much about.  You see, I have been taking an art journaling class this summer.  It is the BOD/BOM class with Effy Wild… and I am enjoying the different techniques she uses (and there are a LOT on every page).  There is one of each type of spread per week, for 18 weeks.  We are on week 10.  But, I have been working on it very slowly.  I have been taking a lot of other classes this summer, so this one has been squeezed in.  So I have only actually finished 2 spreads.  And there is the reason I haven’t talked about it much.  But, now that the fall is here and things are calming down, I am hoping to have more time to work on this class… so, here is a look at my first 2 spreads* (more to come in the near future).

So, are you doing any art journaling this weekend?

Gelli Plating

Can you use ‘Gelli Plat’e as a verb?  Well, I just did. 😛  About a month ago I did some Gelli Plating. Here are some pictures mid-process and the results…

Blue hair and background test

I wanted to play with this background, for a mixed media project I was working on.  So what better place then my art journal.  Then I found this blue haired girl I had sketched on old book paper.  I thought she went ok, and put her in with a collaged shirt.  Finished it off with a boarder, playing with my new edge punch.

A Girl Face

This is the first girl face I did where I stepped outside the box.  This one is a blend of prisma color pencils and acrylic paint.  Okay, the proportions are off, but i like the 2 media together…
