Wanderlust 2017 Catch-Up

I’ve been so busy trying to keep up with the weekly classes, I just haven’t had time to post. So this is more for my records than anything else. 

Week #11 is a week that involved soldering, some metals, and while really cool looking, I just didn’t have the materials to do it justice.  I tried with grunge board and may try to go back to complete it, but for now I have an Incomplete.

Week #12 was the Activities week.  Challenge #3 is picking 4 favorite supplies/mediums, and apply them in 8 layers…keeping the same order.  My choices: Distress Inks, Stencils, Gelatos, Dina Wakely Heavy Body Metallic Paints. The Wanderlust Book prompt was “I nurture myself with…”  Tried using the masking tape masking technique to block for the words…sorta worked.

Week #13 was with Jamie and Kasia using the Gelli plate…and using items found in nature…as we had just gotten dumped on with snow, it was back to my spice cabinet, and the Bay Leaves worked the best. I actually really like this…just need to make my writing better.

Week#14 was with Jessica Sporn, and I couldn’t wait to explore this one…Creating Art with meaning.  While my meaning didn’t get very deep, it matched the stilted conversation between the paints!  I do love how she explained it; and will come back to this again. And I think I’m getting better with the glazing/transparency part of painting; and covering up the first few layers.

Week #15 was painting a Mermaid with Mindy Lacefield using her processes. Her way of painting skin color and faces was interesting, and boy did I fall short!   Sort of like the Paint and Sip sessions I’ve done. And like all the rest, now I need to come up with my own subject matter and practice.
