Howdy Y’all and Happy WOYWW again. After a pretty tiring week up in Salisbury, I am now playing the waiting game to see how much of an improvement I get from the treatment. It wears me out, but probably just the early rise, long drive, and stress of leaving the house LOL!
Let’s see. What is on my desk this week? First let me show my head-swap from last week. Quite pleased with the results. Hard to read but the stamped image says Your Artistic License has just been revoked.
MOSTLY what is all over my desks are bits and pieces of various things I have been creating. It isn’t very taxing or time consuming, so easy enough even when I don’t feel up to doing much. I grabbed a few magazines at the hospital shop, and cut out a few silhouettes that I think will work on journal pages.
I am always looking for an interesting outline that I can use. The ladies faces are line drawing I converted into stencils. I’ve used them, they are OK, once you fill in the bridges (gaps in the lines) that keep the whole inside from falling out in one blob.
Here is a trio of pages where you can see one of them
Both quotes (Hey, hey, hey now don’t be mean and Mystery is the source of all true art and science) are from a movie, although as the tiny little line of text says Einstein expressed the sentiment, but Buckaroo (Banzai) said it better. Love that movie SO MUCH. You will also see another movie line in the stencils I cut here:
No matter where you go, there you are. The blacked out bit is another quote, Creativity takes courage. Matisse, not Banzai in this case! Another conglomeration of stencils. I have used the weird arcs and the glyphs and the globe and the quote. I have a plan for the circuit board too – oh and the cluster of roses I used on the journal cover.
I cut some stamps out of fun foam, from a die. What I love about that process is depending on whether I cut from the foam side or the backing paper side, the stamp orients a different direction. So every time I can cut a mirror image if I want. Looking forward to testing that out!
Looking forward to testing this one out as well. I think it is going to look fab.
Lastly, anyone want to swap for a stencil? I ended up with FOUR of these (don’t ask) and while I do really like the images, I do NOT need four of them. They are 5×5 inches. Got a mistakenly bought duplicate you want to trade? Leave me a comment, and I’ll get in touch.
I did well last week, visiting every desk, commenting where I could, and saw lots of fun and amazing art. I have missed this and am glad I have been able to join in. Here’s hoping the IVIG really takes and I feel like dancing in a month. Will there be dancing on the WOYWW 600 Zoom, I wonder? Oh dear!
