Today’s artist was the lovely and talented Jane LaFazio. Her project used a lot of drawing skills which I don’t have, and would have needed more time than I have on a week night. However, I loved it so much I wanted to use the general theme. Since my weight loss surgery in late 2016 this recipe has become one of our favourite recipes, so it was good to document it.
I recently read one of Jodi Ohl’s books so was excited to see she is today’s artist. I said to Tony “this isn’t my kind of art process so I won’t be long” – and then got totally engrossed in working on it!
I’m a StencilGirl fan from way back so was delighted to find MaryBeth is one of this year’s artists. Her recipe was all about the layers, which suits how I work – this piece has taken a couple of days because the various mediums needed time to dry. I decided to work on a 10×10″ canvas because this wouldn’t work well in my art journal, and loosely based the image on photos of the Patea cliffs where I live. I took photos of two of the layers as I worked.
I love Dina Wakley‘s work so was excited to see her name pop up as today’s artist. Her paints are wonderful to use, by the way!
Her process is not too disimilar to mine, but is more controlled; as always there was something new to learn. I enjoyed making this page and am pleased with the final result.
Artist Sandra Evertson makes the most stunning jewellery and mixed media pieces. I tend not to do 3D work but enjoyed learning to use my hot glue gun in a whole new way. I’m posting this late because I’ve been unwell the last few days – ongoing issues with my throat/voice. (tedious…)
Today’s artist, Gina Lee Kim, had a fun recipe for us, with multiple steps. Some of my forward planning wasn’t so good, so my glasses are sitting in front of the shelf suppoprts – but I had a great time anyway!
Kasia Avery was talking about colour mixing today – this was fun and I ended up with something that feels substantially different to my normal layout, even if it looks quite similar.
Today we were inspired by #cjs organiser Nathalie Kalbach – I loved her video and enjoyed creating this page after watching it. This was about doing what *I* love, not what’s trendy or current or whatever…
Small note to self – when you are heat embossing the heat gun can make collaged elements bubble if you’re not careful 😉
Today’s artist, Marsha Valk, made me laugh with her project of Sole Picasso so I used her style (sort of) to recreate tonight’s dinner of lamb & chickpea casserole, which is now called Lamb Picassaro!
I love Birgit’s bright cheerful art so was excited to see her pop up as today’s artist. She made a tiny accordian book but, because I want to keep all of #cjs18 in my art journal I followed along on the page. I love the result and would use this idea for cardmaking.
