Watercolor architecture collage

This was a collage I did at my artiscape class. We started with a drawing of a roman column of our choice . After drawing in pencil , we went over with masking fluid. Next we sprayed liquid watercolor in our choice of colors. After rubbing off the fluid, we used markers and colored pencils to add color to the now white column. Lastly various paper, wood and other elements were added and rubber stamps to finish the piece. We used illustration board for the background but I would like to try with watercolor paper and tape to a board first. I plan to try this with my 8th grade next month.

Queen Altered Book Spreads finished!

This is a new altered book I started from an online blog class. It has been really fun. 100 people signed up to participate and each week we have to post pics and info about each lesson. It keeps you working and creating to keep up with the class. We are on week 4 now.
This background was a credit card technique where you smear different colors.

We made a color wheel and tried some sgraffito.

Happy Easter!

Today it was raining and snowing during the drive home for our Easter service . Our choir sang and we had a good turnout of umbrellas this morning.

Age of Innocence ATC

This is an atc I made for an upcoming workshop called Artiscape in Columbus. I used a skyline of NYC and framed it with strips of map of the area. This theme is from the movie "Age of Innocence" that takes place in NYC. Lastly I added some wire art on top with some sead beads. I am so excited to go in 2 weeks. I will be taking classes in belgian book binding, Zia's soul map collage, architectural collage, and encaustic canvas collage. I will get to stay with my daughter who lives nearby and explore the sites of Columbus.
