Thursday Journal with Neet

'In my experience, I am right' are the words this week and I have chosen these figures as I thought the one on the left would have said the words and the one of the right looks decidedly bored with her.
It's still raining here and I dare not walk on the lawn, as it just brings up all the earth.
This does mean that I spend a bit more time in my studio, getting some pieces ready to sew and put on canvas. As we are not having any workshops at the moment I need to keep going and not loose my mojo.

Tag Tuesday - cats

Another tag for my theme on cats on Tag Tuesday I used Dylusion products again with a sprayed background.

Mixed media course piece

I am having a break from trees and have done another sea one. This time in mixed media. I started off with a linen type fabric and added strips on paper, fabric, melted baby wipes (blue bits) I then added shells, driftwood, seagull feathers, and some homemade seaweed and nets from scrim. I did some French knots and beads and added a thermofax screened fish and ammonites.
It measures 12" x 24"

Thursday Journal with Neet

The words this week are 'Every now and then, life needs to be turned upside down to get it back the right way up'
Not an easy one to portray in pictures, and this was the only way I could think of. The background is sprayed with Dylusion inks and stencils used on top. I didn't think it needs any additional stamping. I will be interested to see how Neet interpreted this one. We do sometimes come up with the same idea, maybe this time !
I am still very busy with my course work and no sooner do I finish one I want to make another one. I will put one on, on Friday, a mixed media one on fabric.
The weather has turned very cold and I have only managed half a day in the wet soggy garden.  My back and left hip are also bothering me with this damp weather ( I'm blaming that anyway)

Tag Tuesday - Cats

It's my turn to host Tag Tuesday for the next fortnight and I have chosen cats as the theme.
For the first one I used all Dylusion products with a sprayed ink background. The second one is on a sprayed ink background and with one of my favourite cats stamps. I just love the expression on their faces.

 These are the two ginger and white ones, having had an exhausting day doing nothing. They are brother and sister and started life as feral kittens from where we lived in Wales.

Thursday Journal with Neet

For the words this week which are 'How about never, is never good for you' I used two of Dylusions stencil/masks. I rarely use them and this one gave me the opportunity.
The female figure with that stance looks like she would say those words, and he's looking somewhat bored and looks like he might be thinking of saying something.

Tag Tuesday - Seeds and plants

For this fortnight on Tag Tuesday Michele has chosen Seeds and plants which is perfect for this time of year. I have used a photograph of one of my apple trees where the apples have been really good this year. I cut the photo up and placed it on a sprayed background.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week the words are 'I hear you, I'm just not listening'. I have used one of my Dylusion sprayed pages with some stencil work on top. I also sprayed some gold shimmer ink on as well. The figures are Dylusions and painted with watercolour pens.
The figure on the right looks as if she is walking away and is definitely not listening.
I am getting really fed up with all this rain, I can't do the jobs in the garden and as my textile course has been cancelled for the time being, my enthusiasm has gone as well.
I'm going to give it a break for a while and try and get back to my two on-line art courses, which I have abandoned since April. I can't catch up now, but I can do a bit.

Tag Tuesday - Anything goes

On Tag Tuesday the theme set by Valerie is Anything goes. This has given me the chance to use up some spare bits. I have boxes of things to use up and really must sort my studio out. Times change and I do more textiles than anything else now.
This is another of my deli paper backgrounds and this time I cut up added some extra pieces to the tag. I then added some more friendly plastic pieces. Just in time for this one.

Tag Tuesday - Anything goes

For Valeries theme on Tag Tuesday which is anything goes, I have used up some hoarded scraps. I started off by covering some card with coloured deli paper and making tags with them. I then added some glitter medium through a heart stencil and added some friendly plastic charms that I had made years ago. I really must use up more of these as it is no longer available and will get brittle.
