New Art






Hello Friends and Family. Well, I finally got around to scanning in some new art for my blog. I hope that you will enjoy it, and please leave me a comment if you will.

The first piece is a double image transfer. I printed the images on matte finish photo paper, and transferred them to an acrylic background using matte gel medium. I came back in with a black pen to add a little interest to the top image of the woman. I especially like the crackle look to the images that I was able to do with the heat gun, due to the fact that the background was acrylic, and when heated it expanded a little and cracked the transfer.

The second and third pieces are beeswax collages. These are fun to do, and not being able to leave well enough alone, I like to add additional color with an inexpensive crayon in one hand and my heat gun in the other. Way fun, and you can get some neat results. I would love to be able to get my pieces more smooth, but when I try with my heat gun it seems that I end up melting away too much of the wax. I think next time I am going to use a low temp small sewing aid iron, dry heat of course. If you have a suggestion on how to get that really smooth look with well attached elements, please let me know.

Well, spring is in the air, almost, and I am going to try to redo my blog again, and this time try to get back to the three columns that I had before things went haywire. I am just worried about saving my elements, and especially my archive. I will do some researching first before I try it. I am planning on adding some more new art very soon, and some pieces will be for sell so please drop by when you are in the neighborhood! Haha! I hope to do some spring inspired things, and some more painting.

Hello Mary Jane! So nice to "meet" you! Your collage work here is beautiful! I have used a crafter's mini iron to smooth out beeswax before. Looking forward to seeing what you are up to next! ~ Angela
