Friday Links and more…

Stating the obvious….but I must mention that today is the last day of May.  ICAD starts tomorrow at Daisy Yellow.  I think I’m going to try to participate…click on the link to find out more about it.  It’s about tiny pieces of art on index cards…your choice of media.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with this, but I think it is an interesting effect. I found an interesting face in a magazine. I used two pieces of deli paper….the first one I put over the magazine face and loosely followed the lines of the face with a brush and turquoise blue paint and a Blick Studio marker in Teal Green.  The second piece of deli paper is a line drawing with a Sharpie marker…I grabbed up the first paint(yellow) on my desk and painted that face.  I’m going to use some more colors later.  I put the blue brush drawing over the line drawing, lined up the two faces,  and taped them to a glass door in order to take photos:




I also reworked a journal page from the previous post:

    “FANTASTIC!” Mary… love the painted face & your journal page, “WOW!” :]

    That is a very cool idea, Mary! A much more creative use for Deli paper than just eating a sandwich out of it (which is probably what I would have done)!

      Inky…lol! You can also print on deli paper but I haven’t tried that yet 🙂
