I'm back from my little hiatus from blogland. After our many months of moving, I needed a little blog break, and have been putting my creative energies into setting up and decorating our new home. It's come a long way, and still has lots of little spaces left to fill, but we are *SO* happy to be here, and just love it!
I haven't been completely idle in my art, and in fact have lots to show you - but today we'll start with another of my abstract pieces. I'm really loving this new style of art (for me).... here we go...
First up is one of my new hand carved stamps, stamped all over the background of some white card stock. I used Wendy Vecchi's new archival ink in that awesome new gray color... watering can.
Next I chose a variety of Golden's fluid acrylic paints, and used my 3" brayer to create a multicolored background. These paints are pretty transparent, so the texture of the hand card stamp background still shows through.
Then I painted a whole variety of red circles, again using Golden fluid acrylic paint, and then outlined them with a black sharpie paint pen.
Here are a few close ups...
... and then I just went crazy with found stamps (wooden thread spools, hand cut foam stamps), a white paint pen, and my black detail pen.... Voila!
Hope you like - I'll be back soon with more abstracts to share...
