Things are warming up over here in more ways than one.
This is a wine label that I removed soooo easily by filling the wine bottle with boiling hot water. The label then just lifts off. I've done this several times now after struggling with other methods. There are so many cool wine labels to play with.
Wordy. Like my life these days. Everything moving so fast. My friends Jenny and Ruth and I went to this open studio event yesterday and got hugely inspired.
Readers, meet Tangie (left) and Ruth. Tangie and Ruth, meet the readers. Tangie is demonstrating her collage technique. She works BIG.
This is Kristin on the left and her work up front on the table and in the back on the wall.
Look at her painting closely. Grocery bags and walnut ink. That's it folks. Brilliant work from simple materials. The best!!
Here's a cornstarch paint recipe for making paste paper. I love "secret" recipes.
Then last night my friend Shannon and I went to Andrea Benson's Friday Open House and admired her recent encaustic work. It is meticulous and thoughtful. The wine was flowing (that's my excuse) so the only photo I took there was of the above poster. I'm going to make my own list of demands; can't wait to start.
Don't forget to enter into the book and art giveaway that Mary Beth and I are sponsoring here. One more day to leave a comment at that post and enter. Next week I'm going on another road trip so fasten your seat belts and prepare for a little travel. We're going to have some fun. :-D
ps. oops. Can't count. Make that two more days. We'll pick a number on Tuesday and post the winner asap.
