I am starting another new journal. After the "1,000 Artists Journals project" entries I sent off my journal and I am missing it, so I decided to start another one. It seems I never finish them totally anyway. Here is just the front. I will try to take some pics with my camera when the lighting is better. This is from my scanner. I got the journal from Daniel Smith. I'm not sure if they have these anymore but I really like the rough torn archival watercolor pages in them. I'll be taking more photos of my journal this weekend.
I used a new poster paint type white pen for my identification in her hair! It is a "Pen-touch" quick dry opaque white ink, permanent marker. I love it!!!

I have been experimenting with different backgrounds. I love the muslin and the texture it gives. On this piece I have used joint compound. I usually prep 5 pieces at one time, then they are ready when I feel like painting. This piece measures 8 x 8 x 1.5 inches. The colors are much better in person. I use artist grade acrylics and an archival finishing spray.

The fall weather motivates me to work with fabric more. I love making these little pieces in one sitting.
I made these art patches from images of my own art. The larger one has vinyl over the face of it giving it a polished look. They are stuffed with polyfill and hand stitched.

I created this piece over the weekend. I like how it turned out. I am so wanting to make fabric/muslin creatures or fabric brooches or something out of fabric. I get this craving when fall comes, there is something soothing about sewing,,,, fabric,,, tactile.
oh yeah, this piece is in my shop.
