What a useless blogger I am these days – over six weeks ago since I last posted!
So what takes all my time these days?
Workshops, talks, demonstrations, shows – really busy but loving every minute of it.
Tomorrow, Thursday 21st, I am ‘In Residence’ at ArtVanGo.
Do hope you can come along and have a chat and take a look at what I am up to with Spunbond, Dressmaking Tissue Paper and various acrylic mediums.
Here’s a taster:
Next week I am back in St Issey, Cornwall with a two day workshop this time plus a chance to see the Cornwall Show. Really looking forward to it. So pleased the weather has picked up.
As everything is prepared and ready for St Issey I had a few spare minutes to play with this paper from ArtVanGo.
It’s a double sided wax paper, different colour on each side. Feels lovely and smooth.
I tried crumpling it up:
Then ironing it flat again:
These are the reverse sides of the above – not very exciting:
but held up to the light, what a difference – given me a few ideas here!
I then tried crumpling and ironing again and while it was still hot I rubbed a metallic wax crayon over the surface:
And on these ones I melted the metallic wax crayon between two sheets of baking parchment then ironed the waxed paper between the same two sheets:
Had to try Treasure Gold, of course, with Autumn Gold Creative Spray on top. Ironed again once dry.
And finally rubbed over a metallic white acrylic paint before ironing again.
Nothing ground breaking, still waxed paper, but ideal for adding stitch and lots of potential.
Next time I get a few spare minutes, she say’s hopefully, I will carry on playing with this.
