I know this is the longest I have gone without a blog post! And there's no excuse. It's not like I've been sitting on my butt doing nothing!
I did some solar fast prints last week which I'm happy with. They are similar to some of the pieces I'm currently working on, but that's ok. I need additional pieces for another project that needs to be done by fall.
The pieces were originally solar prints but I forgot to rinse the pieces and left them out in the sun. Well, what you get is a solid color!
Next time I played, I stamped them and I was happy with that but....the next layer was calling so I used oil pastels on the blocks and now I am quite happy with the pieces. I'm trying to get enough leaf blocks printed/created so I can use them for hand work too.
I'm quite happy with these two pieces....I used a Ginko stencil I had and the other leaf was putting the oil pastel on the edge of the cardboard template and rubbing the oil pastel onto the fabric.
This piece didn't turn out so great. I was using the Inktense blocks and rubbing over some leaf plates. Nothing exciting, but I'm sure it will have another layer of 'something' added!
I have also been busy with everyday stuff, outings with my friends and dinner out! A lot!! Bob's only golfing four days a week (he used to golf 6 days a week!) so now he wants to toot around and have a late lunch or early dinner out! Well, no I don't argue with him! he he he
I met up with some art buds last week and we surprised Kay with a FaceTime visit with Mary Stori! Mary has been trying to get to Florida to visit and play but with air flight issues trying to get somewhere "from here" has prevented her from heading south. It's not easy traveling from her home to the airport let alone to get to where we are. But who knows...maybe someday...and until then..FaceTime works!
