I have also been making some art. I am still working on my fabric mono-prints, more cuffs, another background and my owl that I showed earlier this month.
First the background. I layered gesso on a piece of water color fabric thickly and then doodled into it. When that was dry I painted some water colors over it letting some of them drip. I will be adding more to this piece soon. Hopefully it will turn out to be something nice.
Next are the mono-prints that I am working on. I am adding color the the white spaces. Some of them I like better than others, but after adding more paint and stitching I hope that they look better.
Here is the little owl that I have been working on in my sketchbook. I added paint and some words to this page. I am not completely happy with the way he turned out, but I know that practicing will improve my skills, so I keep trying. At least the process is fun even though I wish that my skills were up to what I want them at.
I have been reading a couple of books that have me itching to try some new techniques. The first one is: Collage, Assemblage, and Altered Art by Diane Maurer-Mathison. The second one is Collage Unleashed by Traci Bautista. They both have a lot of great information and I want to try some of the techniques that I am reading about. If only there were more hours in the day.
