We made a little impromptu visit to our boat yesterday because the kids were out of school and it was 80 degrees, and how could we not? It was our first overnight of the season and my brother and sister-in-law went with their kids too. Very fun and relaxing little getaway.
I came home and found this waiting for me in the mailbox! The latest issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors featuring an article I wrote. Also featured in this issue are two other Melange Team members, Nancy Lefko, and Sue Pelletier.
Here are some little snippets from my article and a peek at the Homework section featuring some additional tips and one of my journal pages that those who are taking my Visual Journalism 101 online class will recognize.
Included in this article are step out pictures/instructions for the process I use in some of my mixed media portraits.
With Mother’s Day soon approaching, you will find the inspiration behind my portraits and why I find them so much a part of my art life.
This issue has some wonderful articles and I hope you will be able to pick up a copy. Let me know if you do, I’d love to hear from you!
A little insider info, the dress in this portrait, ‘Letting Go’ was inspired by my living room drapes. You just never know what your muse will lead you!
