Catching up a bit on the One Little Word challenges. This one was for #3 : my. Love those Heidi Swapp Ghost Clocks. Planning to do #4 : new and #5 : simplicity soon. Here I played with a canvas (10×8) + beeswax + lots and lots of layers again. White paint pen is from Sharpie.
I have received a few requests recently for me to post about the large canvas I made last year (featured in my CK Studio A column in November 2006).
This is a large canvas – 24 inches x 30 inches (you can find these at Micheal's or other craft stores). Chris ended up taking it with him to Salem and having it hang in his office. Layers include paint (mixing orange + yellow), patterned paper squares, enlarged black and white photos, accents, quotes printed on transparency, and journaling around the outside edge. I used paint to adhere the transparencies to the patterned papers.
Anyone going checking out garage sales this weekend? I saw a couple in the paper this morning that look interesting. I also bought some black spray paint to work on that chair from last weekend and studio reorganization is definitely in full swing. My list of house tasks seems to be a mile long – I should be cleaning out the garage (I have a fantasy about being able to park a car in there someday) but messing around in here sounds a bit more fun.
