This past weekend was another exciting time at the Seniors' Centre there, where we stamped,
|Kerry and Susan work at the stamp table|
|Ellen smooshes her plastic wrap start|
|Isabella paints a drywall compound piece|
|Louise adds found leaves and iridescent acrylics to an old watercolour painting|
With a wide range of backgrounds in the arts from 'none at all' to watercolour, oil, textiles and jewellery, it was exciting to see what resulted from using the twenty-some mixed media techniques.
|This piece by Ellen incorporates wasp-nest walls around the edge!|
|These plastic wrap starts are vibrant with energetic colour.|
|Kerry's piece incorporates the use of eye shadow - can you tell where?|
|This piece by Kerry was a show-stopper...it's truly lovely.|
|Louise' revised watercolour has a terrific moody feel after incorporating cheesecloth, an elderberry cluster tree, leaf trees and iridescent paints.|
|Meg's piece, started with a piece of Tyvek on a recent trip to Creston to play, has some additional hand-crafted stamps and paint layers now....looking luscious.|
|Kerry, a strong volunteer with 4-H in Claresholm, demoed a method for painting flowers on t-shirts with Sharpie pen ink.|
|Meg kindly did a demo for us utilizing gold leaf and metallic papers.|
