This week is flying by again. We are still having
unseasonably hot weather, so I'm busy trying
to keep cool.
I got this little book-box given to me some time back, and have
now altered it. I gave it a layer of crumpled tissue, pushed into folds with my fingers, and then let it dry. I painted it with white gesso, and then
covered it with napkins, inside and out. When it was dry I added more
colour with gelatos smoothed with a baby-wipe. I gave the box
edges 2 coats of cream acrylic paint. I gave the whole thing
I coat of matte medium to finish it.
Then I made a little book out of canvas, also painted and covered with
the same napkin. It fits inside the box.
Artistic Inspirations, anything goes
Some days started off stormy:
I enjoyed looking for shady places:
The arch is crooked, not the photo:
Mr Heron was out fishing again:
The pollen from the poplars made it look like it was snowing:
Lots of hungry visitors again:
The pigeons are once again very hungry:
This one enjoys sitting in the tree outside my bedroom window:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
