I’ve been busy the last 48 hours just creating. I wish the next phase could be for the store for a change. (Need to make money on that investment!)
I’m making more Artist Trading Card (ATC) collage backgrounds. Been tearing up colorful layouts in the magazines and creating a linear collage, then painting the whole canvas a single pearlized color. (I’m going nuts about metallic paints and glazes!) It’s been pretty enjoyable and not much effort. I had the finished backgrounds sit beneath three reams of paper today at the office to “flatten” them out and “air out” any bubbles underneath. Now I can continue to work on them.
I’ve also been painting paper tags with various shades of watercolor and trying to go for more sombre and darker tones. The top one with the doodle art was a single attempt at drawing and scribbling on a tag. I ended the day with around 40 tags. (4 sets of 10 tags in 4 different color schemes.)
My Altered Book has also progressed nicely, with this cut out layout pictured below:
This is actually a multi-page layout I did the alpha for freehand, then I cut them out yesterday. I will retouch the fuschia pink page which shows some “scratches” from the scissors I used, but I like the over-all effect pretty much.
I’ve had a pretty productive day work-wise, too, even if I’m tired and sleepy from staying up an extra hour last night to do the collage backgrounds on the ATCs. It’s also been quiet. (No negative energy or difficult conversations today. I know it was prayer that did wonders!)
I’m wrapping this up because I want to get on the bus earlier tonight. It’s one of those few nights when I can actually do it. =)
