Monday, November 15, 2004 – family: a study.

I finished the piece for my sister Angela tonight. Tomorrow I have to glue down some curling edges and then coat the whole thing with gel medium, but it’s done and I’m so excited. This is the largest thing I’ve done to date and it was scary and nervewracking and overwhelming and made my back hurt. But I love it. I used the “serendipity” technique of doing random collage on black paper, then cutting it into squares and then arranging the squares on a black background.

And it really upped my inch count for , too, which is a bonus!

I named it what I did because I thought of my family as I worked…how we’re all different, yet the same, but when we come together, we can be something really beautiful.

Today, after some webby client work, I plan to kick ass on the peice for Angela. I don’t know that it will be done enough to ship before we leave Saturday, but I’m trying!

Sunday, November 7, 2004 – mini notebook cover.

this is the mini composition book I carry around in my purse for jotting down ideas. I decided it needed a cover and I collaged the front and inside covers as well. I’m actually at 497.5 inches, but the meter rounds it up. still didn’t do as much as I wanted today, but I’m pleased with this little ditty.

Saturday, November 6, 2004 – very very busy.

yesterday was a Very Busy Art day.

– I did two more pages of random collage for angela’s peice. I’m not posting that because it’s very similar to those I did on Oct. 27. I have more to do on them, but they’re mostly finished, so they are going into my total inches for the month.
– I worked with the HP Creative Scrapbooking Assistant and clip art for a challenge that’s due this week. That will be finished later today.
– I started cutting up the other collages for Angela’s peice.
– I put a second layer of black gesso on the canvas.
– I did all of my pages for Stamping Book IX for
– I cleaned up the worktable and did some reading on my art lists.

not a whole lot to show for it, but a very productive day anyway. I’ll probably have few things to show for it by the end of today, though.
