Tidbits: Collage and book recommendation

Ok! So with that out of the way, let me tell you what I have been doing. First, I have been reading Acrylic Revolution by Nancy Reyner. I love this book, and plan to go all the way through it. So far, I have tried about 4 different techniques.They are still in process or drying, so I will take photos tomorrow.


I also bought a bunch of mediums and additives this week- Mark Golden should pay me, folks, my studio is starting to look like I am a spokesperson for Golden products. I don't mind- their acrylics are all very reliable and predictable- just what you would want them to be.


I also finished a collage that I have been working on (mostly in my head) for months. I made some of the papers, used some handmade papers I had purchased, and many of the papers are ones that I painted or created myself. I have been collecting frog images for months now, and am curious to hear what you think! (Yes, Pammy, you can click to enlarge.)


Okay, talk to you tomorrow.

I like your collage. It's interesting and unusual (in a good way). You sure have been busy over the last week or so! I hadn't been to your blog since the 26th, and yikes, I missed a lot. But I'm caught up now! I'm glad you got some serious housecleaning done. Hopefully, that will make creating the rest of this week even more fun!

Giggle ~ thanks for the reminder to use features! That enlarging so rocks. I learned some new things. Paradoxal frog? Huh, who woulda thunk? Quite the name. And Trinidad makes me smile just thinking about it.

Thanks for sharing.
