Details!

I used to be good with details, but now I'm less so and it feels so easy to become bogged down in them!!

Index Card a Day

I decided that this year I would join in Index Card a Day, otherwise known as ICAD. The project runs from 1st June until the end of July, and the idea is that one decorates an index card for each of the 61 days. I have just about kept up so far, and so here are my first four cards.

Working Big!

This week at Wanderlust, Kasia encouraged us to work big. I hadn't done anything in my A3 journal for ages, so now was the time. Lots of layers of acrylic paint. I have a feeling it isn't finished, but this the page at the moment.

Patchwork Effect

Kate Crane was the guest artist at Wanderlust last week. She demonstrated how she painted a patchwork effect. This is my finished page.

The guest artist at Wanderlust for week 18 was Dyan Reaveley. Inspired by her techniques I created two journal pages.

Working Small

Week 17 (I'm a bit behind!) at Wanderlust, was about working on a small substrate. I made a concertina journal, about A6 size, so not that small, but smaller than my usual art journals. Click on the pictures if you would like to see them in greater detail. Thanks for looking!

Canvas 1

Over the last 18 months my church has held two art exhibitions. The first was centred around pieces of art related to Easter, and this was the canvas I displayed. It is 20 x 16 inches. Click on the picture if you wish to see the details.

Journeys

I am somewhat behind with Wanderlust at the moment!

The guest artist for week 14 was Jessica Sporn whose canvas depicts the terrible journeys many refugees have to make to reach safety. Here is my own version:  the lines of washi tape depicting the borders refugees have to cross; the red stencil patterns highlighting the circuitous routes refugees have to travel; and the crosses recognising that many die along the way before reaching safety. The angel is a prayer that might be protected whilst travelling.

Infusions

Recently, I went to the Crafty at Ally Pally show and did a 'make and take' with PaperArtsy. We stamped all the leaves with infusions, and the words were stamped with Distress Oxide ink (pity I can't stamp straight!).

Printing Pictures

I picked a tip up from Jamie, on his class at Wanderlust this week: place a picture underneath your Gelli Plate and then paint onto the Gelli Plate. I painted an abbey. I printed two onto backgrounds I had previously done, and then a ghost print. They are not perfect, but I really like them!

Nature

This week at Wanderlust, Kasia encouraged us to use things from nature with our Gelli Plates. 



I did one print into my art journal. As suggested, I then uses various pens and crayons to finish my page. 


Once I had taken my Gelli Plate print, I stamped the leaves onto another page to get their imprints.


A good experiment!
