modeling foam (mousse)

This is a product purchased at Michaels, it comes in a 10.58 oz or 300g bucket. It stays pliable till it is left out in the air to dry. Takes 48 hours for it to dry completely. Then they suggest you paint. In the first one lower picture, I used it over a picture I had .. a canvas that had already been painted and was waiting to be recycled.

I applied the product it is like a lazy dough, it pulls apart, stretches and works like a well chawed piece of gum. I did not use glue or other medium to stick it to the canvas. I simply applied it.. I used Tim Holtz distress spray stain, and Distress oxide sprays to colour and shade. While it was still drying. Once it was really dry I applied other colours for shading or to bring out parts of the “expression”

It was easy to work with and easy to clean up after. the one tub, was sufficient for me to do two canvas pieces. I still havce enough to do a mini piece or add to?

Oh yes, I also used it to reshape the look of a doll the size of a Barbie, I added ears, hair, and clothes on another.

this is work in progress, you can see I’ve layered and added with the rest of the product I could make her a mermaid tail, or change her head features to produce of alien..

What better time to explore product and items in our workshops,studios, etc. I have managed to clear our a lot of product that I know I will no longer use. Now waiting for the donation boxes to reopen.

Thank you to those who expressed an interested in this product. I hope you are able to find it when the stores reopen. It was a recent purchase, likely later March early April.

It is not apoxie sculpt. This is my preferred medium. I repair things with apoxie and still have the repaired items in use today. =^_^=

Waves to everyone.. shares a big smile.. and warm hug.

sometimes in a world of chaos, we need not understand, there are far too many elements

accept, let go and move on.

PL calendar day 3   Instead of worrying .. do something about it.

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, What if this happens? or Things might end up that way.  Instead, be proactive and change how you see and do things, in each situation.

If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it. Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome.  Your daily accumulation of effort towards your goals shows just how serious you are.

MCG demo 2

demo 2 mcg 5.2.19

Happy May 5th. Bom dia!

Another mixed media done for demo.  The idea with a demo of new and old products is to show artists, budding new crafters and seasoned expressionist  how to use some of the newer products that are arriving on the market daily.  Yes you an see YouTube videos but a video isn’t something you can touch, feel and  at the same time, have knoledegable staff who can and will help if you have questions.

I know that there are many who prefer to deal online for supplies, and if you know the product, and the supplier, have a particular way of working, and are not going to deviate from what you know.. then go for it.

My experience is that when I am in a creative mood, or am working on an idea, I want and need my inventory handy.  Part of the creative process in mixed media is to be open to new possibilities.  The demo -before- during prep.. sometimes, what is down could be up =^_^=   Abstract work, is lived in the moment.

demo mcg 2,5219The beauty of abstract mixed media… given the same products, no two pieces will come out the same.  How perfect is that.  We are all unique …  talented and beautiful.

PL calendar day 5    Start by thinking “this is interesting”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it. From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come of it.

My bargain tulips are blooming…

trial and error

Good Morning, Bom dia!

The day is young and really not decided on what it is going to do.  The forecast says rain and lots of it.  In our area, there has been a lot of flooding already, this newest bit of rain could be a real disaster for many at risk communities.  My prayers go out to all of you at this time.

Across the river on the Quebec side, the military has been brought in to help with the filling of sandbags and volunteers from all around are coming around donating their time.  It is in such times that we see how community pulls together despite any differences at other times.  Oyashikiri.

What you see above is my trying out a new product, seeing what it can do with a variety of molds or embossing/texture plates.  The product used (coloured) is by Finnabair, called Icing paste (Prima marketing),  It is through trial and error that I will find how it will work with my particular style of “working”.  The challenge and opportunity of discovery.  I love it.

PL calendar day 26       Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.

Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things.  Be fully responsible, completing whatever you set out to do.

Thanksgiving

Bom dia, good morning..

The 21st is drawing near. There is a long week-end coming up.  For those of you celebrating Easter, enjoy your time with family and friends.  It is a special week-end.  In PL we celebrate Thanksgiving on the 21st.

The Thanksgiving service is the 21st of each month.  It is the most important service of the month.  This Sunday will be a very positive and prayer filled day.  Our church here in Ottawa will hold service at 10 a.m. and again at 7 pm.  All are welcome.

Today – PL Calendar day 18

Things have a way of getting more complicated when you procrastinate.  Work on taking immediate action and you will discover many ways to tackle the situation.

For me, mixed media 4.18.17

PL calendar day 4.

Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others

Always be true to yourself in your words and actions.  Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.

I came across the above photo this morning.  I enjoyed revisiting it, so I am sharing it with you. Some expressions of mine.. I enjoy at the time, they are calming and relaxing when I am working with them…  then… fickle as I am..  I move on.  Each step leads to another.  So maybe not fickle, maybe it is more, I let go and go forward.  I just finished several small requests for greeting cards, I enjoy doing them,  I sit myself down, focus on project cards.  When that is done, I put the card making supplies away and return to my art journals.

Sage sentiment.  Follow your heart while thinking of the happiness of others.

I know it is impossible to be happy and full of glee 24/7, but I  do so enjoy thinking of you all living in happy states of mind..  Productivity, creativity and accomplishments filling your days with rewarding moments of pure satisfaction.  Positive and loving energy to all.   Share a smile today!
