Beginning the New Year

Posted in 12x12, Challenges, Mixed Media with tags , , , on January 6, 2015 by madelincwolf

It’s been too long since I’ve posted. I’m glad that2014 has passed. It was a somewhat difficult year in spite of the fact that I had some good things happen.  including my renewed interest in writing a novel and a year-long commitment to making 12 pieces of art in a 12” x 12” format. (Probably the main reason I have been so remiss in blogging.) I hope to correct that this year. More blogging, more art= more happiness!

Here is a photo of a piece for the 12″ x 12″ challenge.

Mixed Media Stitch Finalist!

Posted in Challenges, Mixed Media, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 17, 2013 by madelincwolf

Before I injured my back, I made a piece for the Cloth Paper Scissors “Mixed-Media Stitch” challenge.  I found out yesterday that I am one of the finalists.! I will send in my entry and, hopefully will be included in an upcoming issue of CPS magazine.  This really was an uplifting piece of news.  This piece represents the healing I have been doing over the past year.  I am not finished yet, but my heart is healing.  I used a quilted practice piece, folded tea bags, embroidery, a gold Lumiere paint wash and a cardboard heart with glued-on eggshells colored with Adirondack Alcohol Inks. the twig is coriander painted red.  I enjoyed creating this piece and look forward to doing more eggshell mosaic art pieces.

Fabulous Friday Finds 2

Here is the latest in my FFF series.  This is a compilation of recent and not-so-recent finds that are intriguing to me.  My favorites of this bunch are the single earring without the hook and the rusty piece of what looks like hammered iron. The copper rings were found in the bathroom during a remodel, in the building where my studio is located.  The battered princess bracelet was found in the parking lot at El Cerrito Plaza, I think. In any case, I am going to have fun putting these elements into a mixed media piece.  Do you pick up random shiny bits on the street?  Have you used them in a mixed media piece?  Add a comment with a link so we can see what you’ve made with YOUR Fabulous Friday Finds!
