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.

a new thought

Seeing is what makes life interesting No music to distract, only the visual. Make of it what you will, for my expression is done. The thought came, I executed it, now I too sit back and see it for the first time. This was the 24th. the next photo is of what followed on the 28th. Wait. no. I will post 28 tomorrow, so not to distract from the 24th.

The number 8 is considered a very lucky number. The year of the Rat will be auspices for many. I see a dragon frolicking.. hmmm a lot to take in.

Good or bad, it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others, When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do and appreciate them that much more.

red sails or Koi

What do we see when we are shown an abstract painting. Do we even see anything at all. Maybe only the colours jump out at you, is it the texture, the groupings. This is one of my latest pieces, turned in all directions. I know which side I see as up, but then when doing the photos, I saw so much else when I viewed it from the different angles.

In my mind when I started, I had the song “red sails in the sunset” running through my gray matter.. later when I stood back and looked at it again, a few days later…. I saw Koi. Each evoked different emotion and thoughts.

When you think.. “I’ve got it,” Think again. It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

feelings

Have you ever felt that you live in a world, where no one really knows your name. OK they may know your name, but you are just another face in the crowd. This is a time of year, when family and friends gather to share memories of the past, and the possibilities that lie ahead.

I was reminded yesterday how fragile life can be. One moment you are working, living busy in a fast moving society. Then suddenly you “wake” to find that you are now on the other side of the street, and “life” seems to be passing you by. Sometimes by choice, and other times, ‘boom” for whatever reason, you just can’t get on or off the bus.

This is a “condition” that can happen to any of us. Rich or poor, it affects everyone, money is not what buys or determines how happy we are. The answers, solutions, they are all varied and different for every human being is unique. We all love, cry, laugh, and “feel”. Emotions are real.

The philosophy of the Church of Perfect Liberty is to help us recognize the ups and downs of everyday life, and help us understand our SELVES so that “we” can recognize what in US, needs fixing, repairing, strengthening. Truth is, we can only change ourselves.

Happiness begins from within, I’m a glutton for “happy”. Smiles and beams just thinking of how nice it is to be happy. And YOU dear reader, my heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you, who share time with me during the day, night, weeks, and months. I love reading your thoughts, seeing your “visual expressions” you are “Beauty” within my world. thank you for all the happiness we’ve shared. I am looking forward to the sunshine of 2020 with you.

Share the beauty in you today, SMILE it is so becoming.

top artwork is mine.

old China 12.28

Ola, bom dia. Old China is the latest piece I am working on. You have heard me say this before, as an artist of sorts, I never think about what it is I am gong to do, rather I am just “led”. By this I mean I come into my studio and see something that catches my interest in this case it was a blank canvas. I know I want to use certain colours, I don’t ask why, I just reach for them and let my desire to express take over.

When next I step back and look, I think… ok… what is this. In a distant far off memory, I think of China. A book cover or picture I saw of Old China. Thus the name, Old China. Of course it doesn’t end there, the paint as to dry, so between the layers I have been off doing whatever else has involved my attention The above is about 4,5 maybe 6 steps. I don’t think or plan, I just do.

I realized that much of how I live is like I paint, or express myself. I simply live the moment. I say simply, but it isn’t always simple for those around me. Do you ever consider how your actions can affect someone else. Seems I will have another lesson to put on my to learn page.

In PL we learn, PL Principle 21. I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

During the night and some time in the early hours of the morning. I worked some more Old China. Here she is this morning.

Am I done, I don’t know. At the moment, she is happy … so I will leave her be and check on her later. Meanwhile everyone, have a grand day, the sun is bright in the sky here. Hope it shines on you too.

a little cheer

multicraft gifts – Thurston Dr. Ottawa, Ontario,Canada

Did you just groan. LOL, get ready, it will soon be in your face. Crafters are already preparing, and many like myself have started the various projects mid October. There were several craft shows happening this week-end, I suspect from now till mid December there will be a craft show happening somewhere every week-end.

Whether you are prepared or not, you will be drawn in, the festive season is one too bright and merry to avoid. For Americans their Thanksgiving is this month. Double fun, and a lot of home cooking.

Accept everything with appreciation. Appreciate not just people and society, but everything that comes your way. You will experience a deeper joy in life.

Today I have a deep appreciation for my friend Bonnie, she is a wizard when it comes to organization and planning, I was lucky enough to get some of her time, to help me with my “scattered files” When my husband passed away, (he had been the master planner and keeper of the files) for me it was a mountain of a task to apply myself to what needed to be done.

Wonder woman arrived with her big blue scarf, her cape was in the wash, and giving me time to gather my wandering mind… she gently pushed the procrastination file aside and began in earnest to put some order to the disorder. A big thank you Bonnie.

I have finally reached a maturity where I can acknowledge that I’m not good at everything. >will wonders never cease< =^_^=

Express your feelings without hesitation. If you hold in all your feelings, you will feel heavy. Just say what is on your mind without hesitating.
