2011 January Calendar swap

This looks better in person.
The background is stenciled and layered on watercolor paper. With a January 2011 transparency laid out on my computer is layed over it.
Simple but nice.

November 2010
Artist trading cards for the Scrapadoodles monthly ATC swap!

I used modeling paste for the trees. Absorbent ground in the back ground. Black bird confetti and a little leaf punch for the leaves.

It was really cute!

A Cute altered Calandar booklet

This was a fun exercise in altering I did with my friend Darlene at her studio.
We used an inexpensive calendar with a plastic cover. We collaged over the booklet inside and out not to thickly because the plastic cover has to go back on. I carry it in my purse it is to cute.

Decorated File folder

I gessoed a file folder. Glued some black and white papers to it. Used some rubber stamps. Painted transparent blue and gold with gel medium. Drew images with black paint. stamped with foam stamps using gesso. Dripped pink ink over the surface.
I think it needs something else. I plan to glue scrap book paer to the inside and sew around the edges.

November Art Every Day

I am taking the challenge to do Art Every day for the month of November. I will probably post once a week or so. About what I am doing.

This week I have been making decorated file folders to keep papers in. I have the outside mostly done but I still have to put some pretty paper inside too.
