I really used some painty scraps here and started by using a "gesso'ed" and Dylusions sprayed square. I stamped the birdie in black then stamped it again and colored it with copics. I cut his pudgy body out and glued him down. :) I went around the card with a black fine pen and sewed down some painted strips with some odd dp. This went to a friend of mine who is recovering from an illness.
Next I just want to share a few photos from Chicago CHA. :) What a very cool experiance and loved that the artists were very "approachable" since it is a smaller show. Forgive my not-so-good photos..had to use my phone since I forgot my camera! arggghh!!
Above ONE of the many "dresses" designed by various artsists..very cool!!
Me and the ultra fabulous RONDA PALAZZARI!! Eeeek! What a sweetie! AND CAN YOU SEE JULIE FEI FAN BALZER IN BETWEEN US?? LOL I was in HEAVEN!! I got to paint with them!!
