In short bursts, I’ve managed to eke out some creative work in the time since I last posted. I have completed a doll for the Stretching Art and Tradition challenge, almost finished a Catrina from my Central Texas Art Doll Sculptors Retreat, and started on my Houston Dolls. Plus I finally got the Kerfluffle entry done in the Words Art Journal Round Robin. So – lots of pictures this post!
First – She Wears Many Hats
For the complete details on this piece, visit Stretching Art and Tradition 15: Hi! It’s Me!.
Next, my Catrina – in polymer clay! I never work in polymer clay because I can never figure it out! Major props to Yoanna B who developed and lead this project in the CTADS retreat, because I actually managed to sculpt something in polymer clay! Her costume isn’t done yet.
And last, but certainly not least – the Words Journal Round Robin. First, the work by this journal’s creator, Donna.
Next – the first word “Imagine”, artist unknown because she didn’t sign her work.
Next: Peggy W with Believe
Next – Debbie G with “Moon”
And the moon opens up to reveal this:
Next Suzanne, from MT, with “Wings”
I love seeing what Suzanne comes up with, as she always has something interactive to play with!
Now, for my entry: Kerfluffle. This word gave me quite a bit of trouble. After much thinking about it (I’m only 3 months late mailing), I arrived at this:
I first drew the large Kerfluffle letters on the page in pencil. Then I started lettering with Fine, Extra Small, and Brush Pitt Pens around the page. The goal was to create a blanket of letters in different styles and hands, without actually doing calligraphy. I will be mailing it off to Mary Monday!
