I was asked by Mary of Joyful Ploys to be the next participant in another sketchbook project. This was started by Jennifer Zoellner. I really like participating in these. It always seems to give me the opportunity to try something new, and I get to meet new artists and have a little fun. This sketchbook is pretty small and the unfortunately the tiny book keeps coming apart.
For this page I first glued 2 pages together, the paper was really thin and then stamped the words with a Slate StazOn Ink. Then I painted the bird with Golden Heavy bodied acrylics.
There is not much to say about this, I had glued down some handmade paper and then these collage items. I like its simplicity,
The next two pages were going to be a one single page but then the book fell apart. I had to use some tape to put it back together and then I lost the cohesion of the piece. So I decided to just make 2 separate pages. I used golden fluids on the pages and some Stewart Gill paints for the accents.
I had this greeting card of a sun with celtic patters all around it. I used the idea but made it different. When I added the rays I had no idea what else I would do. These pattern just seemed to want to be there. I love it when things flow like that.
Here is the latest paint and pass canvas I worked on. I added the little fish. It is really hard not filling the canvas. There are a total of 11 people painting on each of these little 5 x 7 canvases, so I try not to take up too much space.
Remember the Moleskine sketchbook project I did months ago. Well here is a video of the almost finished book. It really is awesome to look at.
