And placed On the back a prayer card or tribute. I used my parents cards from the funeral home. I took apart the left hand side and used the cardboard insert inside and placed a small bit of fiber stuffing {like used for stuffing teddy bears} and covered the board with yellow felt, I didn’t have any velvet.made a brooch to place in it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthen I added the photo of Mary to the right side and put the glass back on it, and glued my trinkets to the glass with E600 glue

Dance of the dragon fly….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthe sealer is still wet but shes pretty much done now….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

here”s the photos , now lets see what you can do with them .

8-free-dragonfly-clip-art-l

anax-black-and-white

Any of various large insects of the order Odonata or suborder Anisoptera, having a long slender body and two pairs of narrow, net-veined wings that are usually held outstretched while the insect is at rest. Also called regionally darnerdarning needledevil’s darning needleear sewermosquito flymosquito hawk,needleskeeter hawksnake doctorsnake feederspindle.
Regional Note: Regional terms for the dragonfly are numerousthe Dictionary of American Regional English lists nearly 80 of them. The greatest variety of terms is to be found in the South, where the most widespread term is snake doctor (a name based on a folk belief that dragonflies take care of snakes). The Midland equivalent is snake feeder. Speakers from the Lower South and the Mississippi Valley, on the other hand, are more likely to refer to the same insect as a mosquito fly, mosquito hawk, or, in the South Atlantic states, a skeeter hawk. The imagery outside the South often alludes to the insect’s shape rather than its behavior or diet: speakers in the West, Upper North, and New England call it a darner, darning needle, or, less commonly, a devil’s darning needle, and those in the Upper North also refer to it just as aneedle; those in Coastal New Jersey, a spindle; and those in the San Francisco Bay area, an ear sewer,that is, a creature that sews up your ears.
now you can change things add things  what ever ….. I will post mine now so you can see what I did.  Cant wait to see what you all come up with.post a link here to yours…. later ………..

Zentangle white out art

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStarted out with doing some Zentangle art .    then some white stenciling of different sizes of circles with  paint… and some red script stamped on the white paint. Using regular  ACRYLIC Paints.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I stamped a Rose with black paint and let it dry, then out lined it in White using a WHITE OUT PEN.. {LOVE THEM} cheaper then most art markers plus you can refill them… LOVE IT!     The step that I saw on the video was they blacked out all around the rose but I spent so much time on it that I decided to use white and incorporate it into the art.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yup I like the way this ended up totally different  from what I wanted but loving it any ways………. now for my next art adventure………….. later……….. going to cut out some card stock paper to make  some faux chip board… for the next project…. later………….

 

making Stencils for mix media art…..

I have made some stencils for glass etchings and different types of stencils for projects using different items, Plastic coating for furniture covers, it was really hard to  cut in small areas but great for a silhouette, and for etchings or paper stencil. Also used heavy card stock and then coated it with crystal lacquer, works real well , that’s in a later blog that works with Cricut …….  So now the stencils results for Vinyl  contact paper its real hard to get it to cut and do the corners or peak cuts but if you take your time and re cut it does work.The good thing is contact paper is large enough to cover all at once.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

now when using a magazine photo , I really love this idea of USING package tape. tape your photo right over the picture you want then cut out the details, This is a favorite right now, lov this idea. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thank you for your inspiration…..

making my own stencils….

I have been playing with different types of ways to make stencils. I used clear transparent contact paper, it s really hard to get good cuts on this.  I thought it would be great for protecting the papers from paint inks or what ever I throw at  My home made stencils.  I”ve used plastic furniture cover material in the past , also it was real cool because it sticks well to stencil on your paper.  But STILL didn’t get a clear cut. I did make some stencils of my own designs of Johhny Depp …{CRY BABY}  and Dave Matthews and some others a while back. for glass etching.  It took days and was a real long process and I didnt use a coating on them and could only use them a couple times.. But Then I was taking  some FREE ART CLASSES on line. From  Terri Sproul on facebook. {Tell HER I SENT YOU…} A little plug for a friendly Artist. Any ways  she was cutting out photos from magazines using the  silhouette’s as stencils glue the photo to card stock place PACKING TAPE TO FRONT AND BACK of photo then cut out. the tape will protect your stencil, from all the fun things You throw at it .. Like Texture magic, spackle plaster, ECT.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALove how these turned out  I did a 2 page journal with some of my new stencils, I need to photograph some to share with you all.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAa little background paint, then more paint with gold and spraying it.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Using water Color tubes in place of GELATOs

Wanted to play along online with some artist but I had not gotten my hands on Gelatos YET… LOL so went for the next best thing I have on hand….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI bought these a while back at the Christmas tree for $2.99 good deal, LOVE THESE wonderful colors……….. First thing was doing a photo transfer on one of the double page journal.I spread my Gesso medium on the page not to thick, then put the photo I printed on my computer{ I use Kodak Printing paper for my photos}now I needed to burnish the photo down real well so there’s no air bubbles..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used my fingers then a bone folder to make sure. I had a few mishaps .. But redid it and let it dry over night.

Now spray the photo with water bottle so its good and wet, nor rub the layers of paper off. Keep wetting as you go The paper will roll up and reveal your photo, so pretty…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I chose red, yellow, and orange. added the colors with my fingers and smeared on the paper, then in water  and spread out till I liked the color strength..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALove playing in paints with my fingers.. If the colors to dark just use a wet paper towel and dab it it will lighten the color for you. spray more water and dab again if you want it even lighter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARepeat  with other colors you can even blend them in to each other.

next I added some texture I wanted it to dry fast… then I used more Gesso just a tiny bit smeared and took newspaper and made a print transfer with it same as the photo only take of while still wet.   And then used my stencils with some Gesso on my fingers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext step I cut three hearts out of gift wrap paper glued them down , then stamped butterflys all around the edges.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthen highlighted the bee and butterfly with black ink and a stencil brush. Also added Dragon Flies and a lady bug with my stipple brush and stencil.

Craft Tips for Creating with Paperclay® Products.

Angel ornament notecard   Craft Tips for Creating with Paperclay® Products.

1. Working Surface – Place plastic wrap (pieces cut from trash bags work well) over your work surface to prevent sticking. If you’re working on a waterproof surface, moisten the area beneath the plastic to anchor it to the table. Waxed paper may also be used, but it doesn’t hold up as well. You may also want to keep a small container of water on hand for thinning and smoothing Paperclay®.

2. Rolling it out – Put the Paperclay® on one end of the plastic wrap. Fold the other end of the plastic over to cover the Paperclay®. Then use a rolling pin to roll out to the desired thickness.

3. Imprinting – After rolling out Paperclay®, remove the top layer of the plastic and lay lace or any other textured fabric directly on top of the Paperclay® and roll again to get the unique textures and patterns.

4. Covering Objects – To cover or embellish an object with Paperclay®, wet it with a small amount of water before applying the Paperclay®. Paperclay® sticks well to most surfaces, but if you have a problem, you can always use white glue.

5. Using molds – The method used to release Paperclay® from molds depends on the type of mold used. When using plastic molds there are several methods for release:

  • Leave Paperclay® in mold overnight, it will dry and shrink slightly so it will come out of the mold easily the next day.
  • Cover the mold with a very thin coat of liquid soap.
  • Sprinkle talcum powder in the mold.
  • Spray the mold with a mold release (Armor All® works great!).
  • Cover the mold with a piece of nylon and then press in the Paperclay®.
  • When using plaster molds use talcum powder or the nylon method to remove Paperclay® from the mold immediately or it may stick to and damage the mold.

6. Drying Paperclay® – Small items will generally dry in a day or so depending on room temperature and humidity. Larger projects may take a few days to completely dry. If you’re in a hurry, you may put your unpainted projects in a 250 degree oven for 30 minutes or until dry.

7. Sanding, carving, etc. – After Paperclay® dries, it can be sanded and carved like wood. You can also build on to a completely dry Paperclay® object by just applying fresh Paperclay® (see #4).

8. Painting – Once Paperclay® is dried, it can be painted with any type of paint. After painting, spray with a clear acrylic spray sealer if desired. Paperclay® may also be colored by kneading water base paint into it before shaping.

9. Storage – After you have opened a package keep the unused portion in an air tight bag. If it should happen to dry out slightly while you’re working or it’s in the bag, simply knead in a few drops of water to restore its pliability.

Follow these helpful hints and have fun!
