Hello Art Lovers!
This spread was a treasure trove of OOPS.
I had used a January StencilClub stencil from Jessica Sporn...
and then spilled a whole cup of coffee on the book...
right on top of this spread.
Oh what a mess it made!
The colors all ran together and it was a blob of yuk.
I walked away from it.
It WAS in the back of the book and I didn't have to look at it for awhile!
It seemed like such a waste! I felt bad ignoring it!
So I gessoed over it then accented with some Neocolor II crayons.
You can still see some of the movement from the peacock stencil design underneath.
It looked very 'Monet'.
I still wasn't real happy with it...
so I accepted my imperfections, made it one date,
and moved on.
Not every page is a masterpiece!
But Look! I am just about to the end of book 11!
My last pages of any of my books
are usually dedicated to practice and scribbles
and stickers and labels from my days.
I don't always show you those pages...
My daughter doodled a bit, the corner rainbow and the turkey....
And when I receive StencilGirl Stencils in the mail
(this time it was the Articulated Hand Stencil by Pam Carriker)
I usually feel compelled to try it out immediately!
I also tried Pam's Journal Sense Hear Stencil.
I have a hard time with ears! It was good practice!
Fun Fun Fun!
I also want to share a quilt I quilted for my daughter.
It's huge! King Size!
She Pieced it...I Quilted it!
I have very artistic and creative children!
Isn't it beautiful?
