1  Re: Abandoned Art Swap Rd 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by alteredmommy on: September 21, 2017 02:36:49 PM
Well I've dropped off 3 of Abbeeroads mandelas so far, I had made a joke in my signup about snow in September....which of course happened (really it was a JOKE mother nature).  I've had to adjust my drop plans to more hospitable environs Smiley

First drop I made last weekend while showing art at the local Fall Fair.    

I started out with an easy one on a side street bench.  There were hundreds of people milling about so it was gone in 10 minutes when I checked back

The rest of my week has been full of meetings so I used the opportunity to abandon some art!


I left this one in the reception area of the Community Health Services office. It is right in front of the mental health wing so hopefully someone who needs a little calm beauty in their life finds it Smiley


Today's meeting was at our community center so I left this one by the pool.  in another fake tree Cheesy

I'm heading to the city tomorrow so hopefully I will be able to abandon the last couple of mandelas

I'm loving all the cool things everyone has made to abandon out in the world!  Abbeeroad sent me the coolest little mandelas that i can't wait to set free-I think I'll do a few around town and save a few for my trip into the big city on Thursday Smiley



The canvas's are about 3" by 3" so holy guacamole there are A LOT of tiny dots!!  Soooo hard to choose one but I think I'm keeping the one on the flowered bag.  Probly Wink

6  The Circus Arrives Without Warning.... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 01, 2017 11:43:37 AM
I just reread The Night Circus, one of my favourite books with the best opening line ever.  In fact I love that line so much I decided to paint it so I could see it everyday because it not only works for the story but for the circus that is life  Grin




I drew the quote freehand in chalk on a black gesso'ed canvas then painted it in. I used thinned artist paint but figured out later that Golden liquid Titanium White was the way to go and have a new respect for the steady hand of sign painters!

So many wonderful mixed media hearts in here!  I'm loving all the interpretations and mix of techniques Smiley

On my way home from mailing my own package, I found a heart shaped parcel in my mailbox from my way more on the ball partner Wulf!  I unwrapped it to find some serious awesome


Wulf wrote his swap note on the back of a vintage picture (destined for the collage stash!) and included a cute little vintage heart button and some painted jewel stickers.  And whats that hiding under the lid.....


A freaking amazing copper heart!  I could not get a photograph that did justice to the inside-its full of gorgeous glass glitter and has a teeny little bird hanging inside.  I love the soldered joints and rivets and little cage window and especially the copper!!  Thank you Wulf, once again you have created something fabulous  Grin

My cards were a base of heavy watercolour paper that I gessoed AND some bristal board that I used to "clean" my gelli plate so had stuff on it already.  I used this tutorial for mass card producing.  First I randomly painted the bases with a variety of Golden fluid acrylics, once they were dry I shuffle them into a pile and stamped  (white/black paint) with a few small lids, edges of credit cards, silicone pastry brush etc.  Once dried shuffle again and used some script stamps, then dripped some iridescent ink.  So all the bases are completely different.  This was really fun and an exercise in letting go of preconceived notions of completion!  The most tedious part was the edging of all of them with a black ink pad.

pile o' fun!!


I had a "normal" picture as my kids called it of reality me with my short bleach blond hair but it was sooooo boring against the colourful background.  So here's a goofy pic of me all excited by my newest wig Grin  Sadly it has gone to the wig graveyard as the label totally lied about being able to blow dry it....


the back factoids.
