Recently, I did three mixed media collages, using pages from an old English dictionary.
This is the first time I've used dictionary pages in artworks, and I must say, I love it! In the past, I have hand-written word deffinitions into collages, but being able to rip-and-snip right from the book was a fun and fascinating process.
I chose some… Continue

Well people, I finally finished my "Do It Yourself With Dali" crafting DVD! OMG! Where do I start? It was a long, difficult road with lots of obstacles, but I finally made it. At one point, I thought, "the universe just doesn't want me to make this thing!" I was ready to trash it, delete all files and throw my computer out the window. (Thank goodness I didn't--LOL!) So many little obstacles, like work men on the road in front of my house, making far too much commotion for filming, barking dogs… Continue

My first attempt with Precious Clay – I wanted something feminine and organic. In time I will make my own pearl and pin chain to go with this I think. A nice long length to hang between the breast.
Last Sunday I participated in my first metal clay… Continue

Mary had a little lamb,
little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
and everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.
It followed her to school one day
school one day, school one day,
It followed her to school one day,
which was against the… Continue

Not all of us think of polymer clay when it comes to making mixed media art but this might just spark a few ideas for those of us who are collectors of well-worn treasures. Amazing...http://efarrowsavos.com/home.html

my latest motto......
"art is allowing my Self the Freedom to Create what i Feel, the good, the bad the ugly and the Beautiful....."
right now it seems as though i have definitely gotten the "ugly" and
"bad" portions perfected. so why can't i move onto the "good" and the
ahhhhh... the million dollar question, my friends!

(as previously posted), wasted art supplies (as my… Continue

The crew is painting all of my walls today! When I say all of my walls, I really mean it! There are only two rooms in the house which are not being mudded, sanded, and painted (one of which is the laundry room). The artist in me has been struggling with communication. I have spent a great deal of time (not much else to do while cooped up in a hotel room with very poor internet connections) choosing colors and making design decisions on a budget. My… Continue

In perusing through some of my files tonight, I came across this recipe for paper mache clay that the artist swears dries rock hard. It's super easy and there is even a video! Just thought some might be interested.http://ultimatepapermache.com/paper-mache-clay
