this one looks like lots of my other work, so it didn't feel very creative, but it did turn out ok-
this didn't photograph very well. people really liked the transfer (which worked quite well) of a phone pole & birds on the wire. but that felt to me like i was just leaving it at a photo, so i added the birds- a transfer in the left and some collage. then i scratched in the bird tracks & around the birds and rubbed in gold oilbar. this is the first one i managed to get a smooth base on.
played with embedding objects on this one, and used some stencils. i think that this & the next earned the "crafty" comment.
this started with gluing the sheet music down. then a few coats of medium, embedded the watercolor paper, transferred the flower in the lower corner, a few more coats, added the heart & border, then scraped down to the bird and scratched in the hearts & notes and rubbed in prussian blue oilbar.
this is the first landscape i've done in a while- started with some of the bleach photos lazertranned on the surface. the bottom is cooler wax put on for texture & scraped a bit, the top layers of hot wax and smooth. another prussian oilbar rub on the bottom for interest.
these were gessoed, then the image was glued down, a few layers of medium, then a transfer of the same image.
and now we're in texas! with fay & rob! for 3 days of music and bbq and texmex...
i'll try to keep up, but could skip a day....
