Art Journal — Random Type and Tape

IMG_3389

Working in words, phrases, washi and gift wrap tape.  Did I mention how much I love the satin effect of gift wrap tape by Scotch.  It's quick, it's easy and it keeps stuff stuck. I have bought any art supplies for many months so I splurged on a bit of washi tape from Pretty Tape on Etsy. Of course I had to use some... I think I may be addicted to this graffiti tape in red, reddish, reddish-orange, okay, you decide.   … [Continue reading...]

Art Journal — Sometimes the flow is lonely

IMG_3344

Following the path, your path. Sometimes the flow is lonely. I’ve been thinking about how when you follow your path you are walking it alone.  Making choices about where you will go next can only be done by you.  Sometimes you walk with others, sometimes you leave others along the way, but you always truly […]

Art Journal — A crazy dress to match some crazier hair

IMG_3333

I am trying to squeeze some journal time in every day.  Art is definitely keeping me grounded through all the chaos that surrounds any renovation and relocation.  The crazy hair is how I feel, instead of my head exploding, the hair is.  The dress developed out of the crazy hair and has a super-heroine kind […]

Fabric Painting — “I’m fixing a hole”

IMG_3271

“I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in.  And stops my mind from wandering  Where it will go.” The Beatles.  This song was floating through my head, while painting these floating heads. The opposite side of the laundry cart. Farmhouse rehab has been taking up hours and hours of my time.  Dog fencing is […]

Farmhouse Rehab – Sailing through a sea of construction

IMG_3211

Sailing though a sea of construction in a tiny boat.  Sometimes that’s what a whole house renovation feels like.  Navigation is unsure, too many rapid decisions that need to be made all at once.  Rough chop and swells, then dead calm. I found some images in Metropolis magazine.  A crane became the mast and a […]
