Still working in my junk journal this week, though I have been making a lot of art as well for some upcoming shows. Above is Spread #45 in my little junk journal – after. Below is how the bound journal looked before I started on it.
On the right side is a page section from one of the fabulous books by Sabrina Ward Harrison. I left the face, but did a bit of altering. The most striking change is the mismatch eyes which are washi tape by Jane Davenport. Sure give this gal a wonky look… and I like wonky! Seems so much more true to life and appealing to me than perfection.
The feathers are from a hand carved stamp. I have been pulling out my stamps, and carving more to get all brushed up for a stamp carving workshop I am teaching at Tessera Gallery in March.
I have been continuing with my faces as well… this week was faces #44-50! Not an especially great batch, but I did lots of experimenting and got some ideas that I may incorporate into some artwork.
My favorite this week is this guy…
I also got a little mini oil painting lesson this week with Lisa Graham, and now am excited to start dabbling a bit in oils.
Another excitement this week was getting the March/April issue of Somerset Studio in the mail with my Paying Tribute article inside! Still thrills me to see my name in print!
I will be teaching a workshop on this faux encaustic technique at Tessera Fine Art Gallery in April.
That is pretty much my week… How was yours?
