Last Thursday I took a fun class in Tubac at MISA (Making Incredibly Stamped Art) located at The Courtyard at 6 Camino Otero. Vesta Able of ArtSeeds teaches here. Her blog is HERE. Miera, another teacher, taught the class and I was so blessed, I was the only student and therefore had her full attention! It was a hoot!! I had a blast and ended up buying some black fun foam (of which they had LOTS) to make more of these using TAC™ stamps. Today I'll be in Tucson, AZ hitting Joan's and Michaels (and having fun with Kathy) to buy some small flower pots and spanish moss. Anyway, what do you think of this! It stands about 1' high and is so colorful!
You'd never know that was black foam, now, would you! We used make-up sponges and acrylic paints after we prepped the foam with stamps.
How do you like my little frog and dragonfly?? Can you see the glitter and copper metallic glitz? The frog has glitter on his eyes and toes and the dragonfly has it lightly brushed all over. And the tips of the flower has some glitter, too.
Here's a closeup of the flower. We used Fimo clay and a candy mold to make the flower middle. I'm thinking of using something else instead and my creative juices are flowing!! The stamp for the flower is by Terry Medaris, another amazing artist (who does phenomenal work with PrismaColor pencils). Anyway, I plan on taking some shrink plastic and wire classes so gotta stay on my toes and get my space reserved when classes are announced!
