A Breath Of Fresh Air - updated



Take time to smell the flowers...
The Mammoth Sunflowers seeds
 did not disappoint, resulting in
large flower heads atop
very thick stalks, reaching at least 
10 feet tall.

A Larger Collage Project

After re-reading The Collage Workbook:  How To Get Started And Stay Inspired by Randel Plowman an idea popped into my mind:  to make a big piece using primarily black/red/tan/white.   The images I selected are mostly Vintage, although not all.  I took pictures of  the background, the background with paint scrapes, and some possible lay-outs but haven't glued down the collage elements yetArrangement is subject to change.

Beacoup Gelli Prints

I decided it's time to part with some of my Gelli Plate prints, since I have quite a stack of them.   A friend encouraged me to list them on the  e t s y  site, so that's what I did over the long week- end after photographing and editing and grouping some of them together by coordinating designs/ colors.
Too bad I'm not into journalling at this time or doing much collage, as they would be useful for that and other projects.  (Some I couldn't bear to cut up, anyway!)  
The "shop" has been dormant for about five years, but after some time and effort I was able to figure out (again) how to configure everything, and set up fourteen listings (so far).  Take a peek at    studio13usa    to see some of my art.  
Happy Summer's end, all...

Here's a sampling:

Fingerpainted Cards

After watching a YouTube presentation about fingerpainting on a Gelli Plate to make backgrounds for art designs, I had to try it.  A little stencil work, some rubberstamping and collaged postage stamps filled out the designs.  I circled the black shapes with a white pen and used a bottle cap to make the larger rings. These were fast, simple, fun to make.  From three pieces of cardstock I cut out six post cards and nine Artist Trading Cards.  That's a pretty good return for some art play!






Almost Full Moon

I wasn't sure if this would turn out at all.  There were two parallel of clouds, one above and one below the moon.  My little camera didn't capture the scene, but I had to try.
