Since I’ve been working with 4”x4” deep edge canvases, I created on with a face from Dina Wakley’s Face in the Crowd stamp set.
I stamped her onto tissue paper, glued it to the canvas and then painted her with Dina’s heavy body paints. Really looks all painterly, not at all like a stamped image.
Again, filling in small faces with paint is rather daunting and I find that I do fat-finger and smudge paint (see the lips), but overall I’m happy with the result. I do love these chunky little canvases because they are “thick” enough to stand.
An update on Sasha. She came home yesterday morning, having spent a night at the vets. Having stitches certainly hasn’t slowed her down. Kind of hard to keep a very active dog from doing things she lives for, i.e. playing fetch and being outside. Oh and having a collar around her neck to keep her from licking her wound is not something she likes. Stitches come out in 10 days and we’re to keep her calm and from jumping – r-i-g-h-t! But we’re so happy to have her back home, even if she is voicing her displeasure of no playtime by whining.
Tomorrow is Gracy’s (middle granddaughter) birthday and part of her present is a trip Sunday to Schlitterbahn. Since Abby and Emma’s birthdays are next month, the whole family will be making a day of it. I’m sure I’ll need another whole day to recuperate but am looking forward to Sunday.
I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend! Until next time….
