Music and magic
Quote: “Ah, music. A magic beyond all we do here!” J.K. Rowling – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
The top 10 this month at ScrapGal is to scrap your favorite music - I took a photo of some of my favorite cd's to which I listen when I am painting. The photo is secured in the center with a brad so it can be turned. I painted the background with watercolor and the white feathers are gesso. I glimmer misted a stencil from Ed Roth's Stencil 101 (which dear Julie sent to me a while ago - thank you, thank you - I love these stencils!) and added a Hambly transparency, 2 Glimmer glass shapes, Pink Paislee alphas, and positively ancient Heidi Swapp tapes. I have a post today over on http://thegalblog.blogspot.com/ so check it out. NOTE: we are having a crop this weekend at ScrapGal - 7pm - 1 am Fri and again on Sat - lots of great inspiration, challenges, and, oh yeah, PRIZES!!!!!!!!!! Be sure to join us!
I have been painting quite a bit lately - but not much that I want to show. I will have 2 paintings in a show starting next Monday so I am looking forward to that.
Today after working at the used book store, I ran some errands and stopped by the library to pick up Layered-Tattered & Stitched- a Fabric-Workshop
by Ruth Rae - it looks fantastic and I can hardly wait to dig into it - so you may see some fabric and jewelry pieces in the near future. I so love her blog http://ruthrae.blogspot.com/ and was super happy to discover that our library had her book.
Thanks for reading and hope you have a creative day!
