Happy Paint Party Friday
Ok. So. I got this really cool mail art today in the mail. It's from my talented and witty friend Robin who hangs out over here.Even though I got a couple of bills in today's mail, it didn't seems quite as painful because of this happy mail art. How sweet is that?! Wouldn't it be great to get a piece of mail art every time we got a bill? I've been busy with a bunch of things the last several weeks. I discovered how to recycle 3 ring binders by watching a bunch of vids on Utube.(of course.) I just happened to have a few binders laying around my house. Basically you cut the vinyl off the front and back with box cutters and take out the book board and put it back together. I also cut the width down so it wouldn't look so much like a binder anymore. After I finished the masking tape layering I slathered the tape with matte medium. I am looking forward to working on the covers even before I get to the insides. Moving on.... Remember these that I did about a year ago? and These were made with distressing National Geographics with Citra Solv. So, I thought they would look pretty cool here. Well, you get the idea. You can see more of my work here Today I also want to show you my latest art on wood. Acrylic paint and collage and jewelry, specifically one lone earring. I think it looks kind of "folk arty," and I might have to try putting this on a tote bag or pillow as well. Lastly, remember all those ICADS I did in June and July? I altered a little book with ICADS for my daughter for her 23rd birthday which was on the 21st. MY daughter is coming to my art journaling workshop tomorrow at AC Moore, so I'm kind of tickled. I'm sorry about the lengthy post. Whew! I had a lot to share with you. Thank you Robin, for thinking of me and thank you for stopping by. I am headed over to the party where there's a bunch of really great folks as well as wonderful, awesome art. Hope you have a good weekend.
