Play Time At The Queen of Arts Studio

Carved some stamps...

That is a very zen activity too, just like rock painting.

Good for crazy brain.


Stamped some newly carved stamps...

A bird story of some kind...

Jack the Crow and the Flower Stalk maybe...

Worked on some journal page foundations for Art Love Letters class.

Tried out some paint splattering techniques...

Somehow, I ended up splattering myself much more than the page with one of my slaps.

These photos are of me after I thought I have wiped all the paint off

and went into the livingroom to say hi to David.

Guess I missed a spot.

Or two...

Happy Saturday, Playmates !

Very cool stamps! What did you carve them into?

I had to laugh at the paint on your nose....because I do that all the time. My hubby is always saying "um, you might want to look in the mirror!"

Paula said...

Kim,

The internet just ate my lovely comment so I will begin again. Love the pic with paint on your nose. I often find myself in a store and I look at my hands or arms and find paint. I usually do not get it on my face, I guess that will be next.

Great stamps, I want to get back to carving some... Love seeing them stamped on old book pages. I love that look, I should do it more often. I got a postcard in the swap where the artist drew a lovely face over a book page. It looked awesome.

Have an artsy weekend.

Kate

Looks like you did have a happy play day.

I've been doodling some designs to carve soon, you gave me new inspiration to get to those designs - just simple patterns to play with in my art journal. Did you see Avatar? hehe, that's where you're going with a blue face...
