Good morning everybody! It's Friday, and that means *Paint Party Friday* , hosted by Eva and Kristin.
I did a lot of painting this week, and really enjoyed myself, just splodging about with colours, watching them run and change, and not trying to do anything in particular. Here is one of my paintings. I don't know yet if I will leave it as it is, use it as a background for something else, or turn it into die-cuts; I just know I had fun making it.
The second picture was made using rubber paint rollers. It's not supposed to be anything, it was just fun. I think paintings like this are what my art teacher used to call *a waste of time and resources*, but I never did agree with her!
And the next painting started off as a nice, tidy townscape in blues and greens. But it somehow looked boring on its clean, white background, so I decided to alter it. I cut it out, and fixed it onto another sheet, which I had pasted with strips of old magazines from 1900, painted with wax crayons, and sprayed with different spray mists in blues, yellow and green. And then I threw more or less everything that was flying about on my working space at it, and made it into a dream collage. Was great fun, and now I like it!
And I made my tag for the Dragon's Dream TIO, who this week wants to see a tag with something from Tim Holtz on it. No problem, I have enough of his stuff here. I used cardboard for the tag, which was gessoed, distressed and stamped with various stamps from TH and LaBlanche to make the background. I added a piece of film strip, a die-cut bird-cage, and a feathery bird. I used a piece of chain - another remnant from my old bathroom plug-chain - to hang a *soar* ticket at the bottom. And that was it.
And that was it for today, too. Have a great day, take care, and thanks for visiting!
