and then- i worked some on these that i started a few weeks ago- the pics aren't great- they were too wet to scan, but you'll get the idea....
i think that this one is done
this one is not
and i think that this one is.
i need to figure out how to use stamps without the ink getting all smeary. i even used some spray var on one of these to no avail. maybe a matter of drying overnight (could be hard for me!) or the type of ink used.... will have to keep experimenting.
this is a start of a background for one of the plexi pieces. i am going to try to create some interesting layers & depth a la ann baldwin's "creative paint workshop for mixed media artists".
this is one of the panels we made last weekend. i offset the frame on the back knowing that i wanted more weight at the bottom- the plexi piece is 8x10, this is 11x14. when i started laying the paper on i go too carried away to see if i had it right side up, and of course i didn't. so i'll have to figure something else out..... i was going to bolt the plexi thru the wood inside the frame- and maybe still can, just bolt in a different place? we'll see....
even tho i enjoy playing in photoshop and i know that the printing set up is integral to the finished piece i love getting my hands dirty- it feels more like creating. i am also glad to make progress on my pay it forward pieces! mailing those off will feel really good!
and now- bedtime-
