Artist's date last Friday...


Finally, I am able to post a picture!! I do not know what the problem is/was, and at this moment, I don't care! I am still unable to post the two pictures that accompany my Studio Friday blog, but I will do it eventually because the my mom's stick people are not to be missed!
This is the mixed media collage that I created on Friday, at my friend Debbie's house, during our kinda-monthly artist's date. It's my second attempt at Misty Mawn's background and collage techniques, as published in the spring-summer edition of Cloth Paper Scissors. My first attempt was very colorful, but more harsh, and lacked the number of layers that make Misty's pieces so rich and engaging. This is an improvement, but I still have to work on technique. I cannot exclaim enough how satisfying it is to create all of these subtle layers and watch what emerges.

I think this turned out lovely. Like Misty's, but still all your own!

This is fantastic! I still do like your other one as well though. So this is what mine are SUPPOSE to look like? Well, you know me, I'm a real chicken!! How did you do the outline - gelmarker? - cool idea - like it better than the black ink.... What Diane says sounds a bit familiar - doesn't it? Some wise woman (or was it wise-@$$) recently said the same thing to you. Wonder who that was....Hummmmm.... Of course it means more coming from a complete stranger rather than I person you loves you!! :-D

I already had a couple times problems uploading pictures! Love your new creation! I think I have to check the issue out again, I guess I missed something or just don't remember!
