...somewhere, although it's hard to find anything (or anyone) in the studio right now. How did it get so messy?
From completed journal pages (Gelli prints used to the max),
to some that are barely started (that's a fabulous card I received from Laura Leeder there on the right),
to journals being made from Gelli prints,
miniature bottles being crackled,
and bottles and glasses getting their first coat of colour, it's riotous inside.
I've been experimenting with printing on Gelli prints and I like this reminder about how to keep centered. Perhaps it will even work if I take the advice.
I'm in the throes of creating a new colouring book for adults, so there are mandala designs everywhere. I can't quite figure out where the 3,000 copies of the first book went - did you take them?!
By now you've probably got the picture, and if not, here's the definitive one. Has anything changed since the last time you saw a full studio shot from here? Don't you think it's a good thing that I rarely teach in my home studio any more? Fitting four students in here without using a crowbar would be a miracle.
Why not send me a link in the comments below so I can see your studio madness? I'd love to know I'm not alone.
I've been playing with foil and embossing folders, using my gallon of black gesso to good effect.
At the rate I'm using it, there will be none left by tomorrow.
I did manage to finish one glass this week - champagne never looked like this before. It rather reminds me of a Queen's Coldstream Guardsman who's had a wee bit too much. His tassle has gone askew and he's a wee bit green instead of his usual jaunty red.
His top hat is still carrying the texture, though, so all is well.
I've finished the crackle lamp, and now I'm on a hunt for the perfect shade...suggestions or links anyone?
I also had to test run those embossed papers, so I used them on the ends of a small crate I was distressing.
I think this will make a terrific gift 'basket', don't you?
What's on your work table this week...have you gone over to the dark side?
