I am back working on the second set of DVDs from Kate Crane, bold backgrounds and 4 Personalized Pages. Yesterday I sprayed with Dylusions and today it was acrylics. What a mess. I thought I had it set up better than yesterday where the journals kept getting lost under mountains of paper towels, sprays would not spray and I kept forgetting to spray with water etc. set out the books to use, set up the acrylics and had stencils and bottle tops for circles handy as well as a new box of baby wipes. I kept dropping things into the paint forgetting to use the baby wipes and in general was up to my armpits when the phone started with only calls I could answer. So here is my contribution to the general day of the Julia. Have to-remember to return and link to this madness so anyone not involved can join in.
The overall picture! i tidied the desk last week and put down my new mat from Artists Cellar, it is larger than most. The computer is set up there so that I can follow the steps in the DVD for the final journal page background. Since Acrylics has never been used by me for painting anything other than furniture or fabric I followed her colors so that I could get the feel of the process. I have decided to try and do a a page a week for the rest of the year so that I become more competent. i also realized why people use vintage images of strangers. Putting large ears on dear old aunt Dolly's photo from when she was in the prime of her youth and considered herself a beauty will lead to you being disinherited. Snatching photos off the internet of living strangers might lead to a legal suit!
Next we have another view of a work space in all its messy splendor. My computer desk. The white basket is to stop Tripper climbing onto the desk to sleep on the computer while I am using it. he is so persistent.
This is my bit for the week. It is now 5.04 pm, Tuesday and I have to finish this on the pc .
Do visit the others and enjoys the site of feverish card making, knitting, sewing, and so much more.
