Transfers (sort of)

I've been playing with transfers and some worked out, some not so much. This one was a photo of my aunt circa 1920s. She won the beauty contest. As you can see, this is not so much. So I ended painting over the image. This one is called Sara.

This one worked out much better, although I did have to add some paint in areas. This one is called Polly.

This one I had high hopes for... even tried the transfer twice. But not gonna happen. So I just bought a new die, cut grunge board, painted, added clear marbles. Some of the flowers are raised (used poker chips).

Online class with Moss Hill Studio

I signed up for an online class with Moss Hill Studio. JoAnnA Pierotti is the artist behind Moss Hill. Have you seen her art? She is fabulous. Anywho, these are actually nothing like what JoAnnA did for the class, but I did use her elements in mine. The first one is called Sisters, and the tag line is "Because of a sewing accident, she was upset that she no longer looked like her sister".

This is called Flower Girl. I haven't added any found objects yet... Not sure whether I am done or not. What do you think?

The best thing is about taking this class is I have been very busy painting and creating. I'm going to Art & Soul the end of April and have signed for a fatbook - need to do 45 pages, then need to come up with something for trades. Will definately be a very busy couple of months.
