Layering Your Art

I also have been taking a online course with Gary Reef. It was his Layering/Texture Course. I was in heaven, so many ideas that I still have to try. He also has a great website - Art from the Heart. His U-tubes are really entertaining with lots of ideas for folks who love mixed media. These are samples from his course. They are before and after so you can see how I built up the surface, then covered it with tinfoil and then used a variety of paints. Interesting what alittle paper, glue and paint can do. More examples of artwork from this class will to come.

Another great online course

I said I was busy this summer. I took Mary Ann Moss's stencil class called Pure Exerimentation Stencilry. She had great videos and it is so much fun seeing what everyone else was up to. Here are a few of the ones I did. I am still cutting out more.I used an electric stencil cutter which was pretty cool. It's interesting while I was taking this class I found all kinds of things that I could use as a stencil.Second hand stores and garage sales added to my supplies.
