Love One Another ~

Hi there!  Happy Friday!  

Well… here is the last of the mixed media pieces I’ve made this summer and fall.

One of the things that is so fun for me, is to play with the layering effects… it’s such a fun surprise to see  colors and myriad textures that can be achieved.  I’m especially addicted fond of the process of peeling off the sticky letters… to reveal the excitement of the colors and textures underneath.  It’s like finding a treasure chest!

Lower left, in the lime green… tar gel!  I love this medium. I added a bit of lime green paint to it, then scraped it through a stencil.

It’s been fun to discover new techniques in my online class from Christy Tomlinson, and to contemplate how I can translate them into the fabric world of my imagination!   

This piece is quite large; 11″x16,” I believe. It’s also a 2-inch deep-edge canvas, which I think makes these pieces special; easy to hang, or stand up on a table, or wherever you like. This one is going to Chester for the November Art Show entitled “Expressive Color” which I am so blessed and excited to share in conjunction with my high school teacher, Katie Twedt!  It will be offered for sale, as well as “Choose to Shine.” 

Here’s the art supply list: Acrylic paint. Tar Gel. Sticky-back letters. Stencils. Glitter. Liquid Pearls dimensional and pearly, paint. Black Pen.  Paper.  Stamps.  Punchinella. Rubons.  

So… sharing with STUDIO JRU link-up party!  I love this party – it encourages me… more!  Jennifer has a beautiful story she’s been sharing… and I almost forgot – some awesome young women on fellowship fridays!

 ~Be blessed~
 Encourage one another. 
Pray for one another.
LOVE one another, as yourself.
