in the studio

August 17, 2010

here are a few pictures of what is going on in the studio this week. i am still working on getting everything ready for the artisan search 2011. here is a peek at an altered book i have started. i am loving using paint swatches from the home improvement store right now. they are sooooo fun to use in my collage. i guess maybe because it is combining my love for all things design with collage. i might have to make another trip out there to get some more colors, seeing i have used up most of them now.

and here is the beginning to another painting. i love the colors in it. i used my own papers, paint samples, clothing patterns, old letters, vintage book pages and vintage wallpaper in this background.

    Lovely!! That mix of colors and patterns – as well as the message – is just yummy!

    I love this and would love to try one! When you say paint swatches do you mean the small samples you purchase?

      thanks kathryn! i am really loving making altered books right now. you can experiment so much more in an altered book and i find myself making paintings of the things i try in my altered books. and i am talking about using the free paint cards that show all of the different colored house paints you can buy. you find them at the local hardware store.

    Love to see your creative process, Wendy! There’s something so deeply inspiring about following along, both with work in process and finished work.
