A new collage...

This week is the 1st week of Lent and the assistant pastor has ask different people in the church to create a piece of art that represents the chosen Bible text for that week, so I went first (because I am so shy you know?lol) my Bible verses were Matthew 26:36-46....this is when Jesus went to the Garden of this is my interpretation of that scripture.
The canvas is 18"x24"...I used Perfect Paper for texture and then did layers of color using Golden Glazes... I had printed transparencies of the images that I wanted to use, and I trimmed them to fit in the areas that I had chosen...I applied more Perfect Paper around the edges of the transparencies so that it didn't look like I had just "glued" them on...I wanted their to be areas of texture and areas of smoothness...I used some glaze over the transparencies...then I used a Qtip to remove some of the glaze so it made more dramatic high lights...after applying 3 lays of glaze, I wrote the quotes from Jesus prayers on top of the last layer and then I then added the leaves and flowers for a real 3-D garden effect...I think it turned out pretty well. A lot of people at church liked it...:)

Ohmygoodness! I have been bad!

OMGoodness! I have really been bad about posting to my blog...but I have been so busy with creating new jewelry and the holidays and yes I have become so addicted to Face Book....I have reconnected with so many of my former art students and class mates and made so many new art really is addicting + it is so easy to post too. So I am apologizing to all of my followers here. But I do see and talk to a lot of you over THERE! LOL I also have a Fan Page on FB, and would love to have you join.

I am so excited to tell you that I will soon have a new Website created by the incredible "Computer Guru" and bestest friend Christy Sobolewski...I can hardly wait...we have been thinking of all kinds of things to put on the site...You will be able to see all of my art work and be able to purchase right from the web site with this awesome shopping cart that Christy created. I will still have my etsy shop where you can purchase my jewelry, but I will have special things that will only be available on the new really is all very exciting...
