Kind of a weird title, but that's just what I've been doing. I have so much stash here, and sometimes when I'm looking for something, I get side-tracked and find something else, which leads me to another item---my temporary muses. And this time, there were 3 of them--
...and here's how they came together--
and a little info about these 2 little ones--
I've had them for a couple of years now. I'll find stuff like this, and then I don't want to part with it. It's not like I had them out or anything--they were just tucked away in the cute little box that they came in. So I figured it was time to let them go, and be out in the world again. I found them at the 127 Corridor Sale --said to be the "largest yard sale" (approximately 600 miles). It always starts the first week in August for 5 days from dawn till dusk, and we try to go when we can. Last year we didn't go, but this year we are!--and I can't wait!!
And for the plaster part of this post--when I was making my piece that I showed you HERE, I had made up too much of the plaster of paris, and once it's dry, it's dry. So I put the rest of it on another wood panel that I had, and here's the result of that--
This time I painted mostly with gouache, which is basically a very thick watercolor in a tube with very intense color--another great medium to work with, but a bit on the pricey side. I just love the results you get when you mix the watercolors with the plaster--
......and LOVE that texture!
And then there's the giveaway that I want to tell you about. Natasha May is having her very first online class--Cotton Candy Girls starting May 7, and she's giving away a spot for it. I met her way back when I was in my first Suzi Blu class. It's so great to see a former "classmate" grow like this and help other artists with their talent--and she's very talented! So if you'd like to win a spot and check out the workshop, just go HERE!
