Summer Art Lovin'

One of the best things about being an Art Teacher 
is getting to find my ART MOJO in the summer!  
Here are a few of the projects completed so far this summer.
  Above is a "Color Challenge" for a Tessera Gallery in Wichita, KS.  Kits were put together by artist Kayann Ausherman and available for purchase. The challenge was to use at least 4 of the supplies in the kit for a finished piece.  I chose TURQUOISE, of course, and created this 11 by 14 inch piece. 
The title is "Emerging".
This is a class I took from Lisa Bruno at My Heart's Fancy in Edmond, OK.  It was fun using new Tim Holtz products to create what I call a shadow box canvas.
Here is another Reverse Painting.  They are so
addictive and easy to make. You can see more here.

This is a store sample for Mrs. O'Leary's using the shadow box canvas effect, the new Voyage Beneath the Sea Collection papers from Graphic 45 and Prima Archival Cast plaster pieces. I also used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, various stencils and embellishments.

This week I created this Mini Metal Book at
Art Unplugged #8 at Mrs.O'Leary's in Wichita.

The Book is about 2 by 3 by 1 inch thick.
Stamped Solder, Riveting, Photo Transfer
were some of the techniques learned.

Coptic Stitch was used to bind the book.
