Caged Heart

this is the prototype for the Caged Heart ATC I will be teaching at ZNE’s ConvenZioNE at the end of the month. I wanted to include as many techniques as possible in the one hour per class time-table and this demonstrates the use of acrylics with glazing medium, stamping, stenciling, an image transfer method that is foolproof, water soluble graphite pencil with a blending medium, Pitt pen detail, dip-dot heart, journaling, and shading/highlighting with charcoal.

I have listed this one for sale in my etsy shop. The theme comes from an ATC that was published in Cloth, Paper, Scissors July ’09.

New Etsy Listing

Finally, I finished this canvas! It has been sitting on my easel, begging me to finish it. Summer is here though, and it is so hard to get much indoor time. ‘Abundant Love’ is a 12x12x2, gallery wrapped canvas. I got to use my new Golden paints and Caran D’ache water soluble crayons on it. It is so wonderful to work with quality mediums. Check out my ‘Yart Sale’ that will be going on until the 20th of June. I have already sold several things, and I do have a couple of canvasses still listed, as well as some prints and smaller works. It’s a great time to get some good deals on Etsy. Remember to buy handmade!
