In the studio this weekend



This is a 12 x 12 wood panel that I've prepared to collage on, I decided to continue this with the piece I did before..I had another woman image to use but facing the other way.  You can also see that machine stitching on the papers in this and the papers that are in this piece are from the print and collage class I'm teaching. Again my photo is a bit shabby...my son is taken a photography class now and I think he was exploring the camera and left the settings on something else...I need to have my other daughter reset it...I'm camera challenged for sure...just give me the basics and off I go..  there is more that has to go into this piece yet...so you get a sneak peek of the process. 





I so needed to give this a try...you get a before the scene look at the tack down Tuesdays I'm working on...hint they will have the same papers in it as about or what is left over...sounds terrible left overs...but there great papers and scraps.  I wanted to combine the Free Flow Mixed Media Collage with with the same style I'm using above in the photo...bring them all together so this is a experiment today.. Can't wait to get into the studio this afternoon.

I have my book club meeting this morning with some great gals..

we are into chapters 2 and 3...
it's great to meet face to face and sit and discuss the contents of the book every other week and though we may stray it's wonderful to change about life, our lives and where it all comes together...that the in between parts.. Creative is a Verb

as my youngest adult in the house says...toodles'

  1. Don't know what your process is or how you make your collages, but I do know it works because they are fabulous every time!

    Heard of that book before. Supposed to be a good one.
