Illuminated Fish

This has been an idea that I have wanted to try for a long time. I used an artist frame, twinkle lights and a batik scarf that I painted over 10 years ago! It is easy to do this idea with cloth or paper that is transparent. With the use of a staple gun it can be finished in minutes.

Box Series

The materials that I used for this project are cigar boxes, calendar pages, tissue paper, stickers, Golden Gel Medium, gold foil and a heat iron. Next time I might gesso the surface but the wood color coming through is very interesting. To hang these pieces there is a hole drilled into the back.

By The Sea

My 76 unbound chunky book pages are complete and in the mail to Victoria BC. The theme was By The Sea and I completed most of it using a computer. Although some glitter glue, crown stamp, and ribbon are great to add some more dimension to a piece. In return all of the artists will get 76 unbound pages returned to them in the mail to either bind, frame or anything else that strikes their fancy.
