JUST PLAYING AROUND

You just never know! The piece circled above is my demo piece for making fabric paper that I did in a recent workshop. After I got home I just started "Playing" with it...nothing in mind....trees were obviously in it....and then BAM!! 

"A warm fire awaits near the Polka Dot Trees" was born.....
Playing with nothing in mind is the best!!

CIRCLES ,WASHI TAPE and YOUTUBE



Having a good time in the Studio today playing with Circles. I love mixing all the different media together and seeing what happens and a Circle and/or Square are good shapes to play with. Squares next!
Also having a BALL making my own Washi Tape. Washi tape is all the rage right now and what it is in reality is a thin rice paper tape, but I am doing my own thing by painting masking tape and other tapes and also adhereing my painted papers to the tape making "strips" of painted paper to work with which happens to be sticky! Not only is it a cool way to work it is just plain FUN to make all these tapes. Can you say "Carried away"?

BTW
 I have started a Youtube series called "Monday in the Studio". Each monday I am posting a video of something I'm doing in the studio to share with you.
Hope you will all join me. If you subscribe to me you will get notified whenever I post a new one. Here is this weeks. ENJOY!

WORKSHOP STUTTGART AR.



Had a GREAT time with my students in Stuttgart, Ar. yesterday!! We played and played and played some more. Just had a good time and created some cool papers.
This workshop was a real challenge for me in that I had to work with the supplies the Art Center had there and anyone who has worked with me or seen my work KNOWS I like to use LOTS of different stuff. But challenge is good. Right? :)
Thanks girls for a good time!!
