Altered Tin - Steampunk Style

 Recently completed for an Altered Tin - Steam punk style swap on Johnny "fired" the tins, I scrubbed up, painted with Lumiere Metallic Rust and blotted off to give a cool effect. Other cool papers and bits and bobs to give a Steampunk feel.

Beech Tree Metamorphosis

Our beech tree is fun to watch this time of year. Most of the old leaves hang on all winter, awaiting the new leaves emergence before falling from the tree. It's interesting how some of the leaves just keep hanging on... they won't let go even after the new leaf has appeared. Don't they know it's spring? It's time to let go now.

Attention span of a what?

One of today's comments from our Squeen of Silly (Carla Sonheim) is about attention span... her example:  What do you have the attention span of?
A:  I am just like the Squeen. I have the attention span of a pea.

I think I have the attention span of a zucchini… it can be really short and tiny or it can be like that large long overgrown thing found hiding under the leaves. heehee!

What do YOU have the attention span of?

Firing the tins

I think he loves me... or else loves building fires. He built a special "fire pit" to burn some tins for me. I wanted them for a project I'm doing... isn't he the best? :)
I'll share pictures of the tins later..........

Artfest Art

Here's a bit of the art I created this past weekend. The first three photos are from Tracy and Marilyn Huskamp's class, Between the Lines; an abstract landscape technique with lots of fun texture.

 Based on a photo of a hill full of sunflowers

 Seascape - work in progress

A canvas from class - also a work in progress.

I can't seem to get good pictures of the collage boards from Karen Micheal's class, or the little book from Carl Sonheim's class so here is a picture from the mantel at House 15 at Artfest. The two collage boards are mine (blue one is a mirror frame), as is the little Picasso Dog book.

The SUN word canvases are Jody's.

I need a good sunshine day to get better pictures, and also need a bit more play time to finish the uncompleted projects...
