|new open acrylics to play with, canvases, pens, ink, and stencil|
I worked on a wedding gift for my cousin and her new hubby.
After seeing items on their registry i painted carpet tack strips in these colors to go with their decor. I cut the metal pieces from rusted "stuff" each heart representing the two of them. Cut out words from vintage books "two hearts one home" I think i'll make an additional one (heart) when baby makes three.
The art group i belong to will celebrate our 20th year as a group in Oct! Since i am the current "queen" i proposed an anniversary book project. Each person participating would create a page for the book-in duplicate depending on how many participated. Of course since it was my idea and i gave plenty of notice i figured my pages would have been done months ago- before the sept deadline. Not. So I worked on my pages on parent sheets of watercolor paper, then cut them to size then added the focal points. Each page is different somewhat. I then had to come up with the front and back covers-again I had plenty of time, but waited until the last minute to work on those. Everything is done, the pages all collated and ready to be bound next wk-with the help of several friends. They will be presented in Oct at our anniversary get-together-lunch. Everyone who participated will have a fun book to remember this occasion by. I am planning to photograph each page and put them on flickr so that those that didn't participate can see (what they missed out on) :)
I will post pictures of the process in another post.
