new project....

I have somehow started a new project while working on other things... I got this idea to paint a quote....

and with this quote I am going to turn it into a wall hanging of some kind which is in the very very beginning stages...

and while contemplating my project, I went out side and prep some more canvas and painters cloth with gesso spray and, I tried my hand at making "fabric paper"...

I added some more tissue paper and color....

I found the information on doing the "fabric paper" from Linda Matthews web site and thought I would give it a try. It is drying out right now and not sure what I will make with it at the  moment. I didn't have the cheese cloth like the directions and I am not sure if that will make a difference. I have worked on my "wall hanging" some more and it looks a little different from the photo above. I am not sure how much time I will have the rest of the week to work on my project, my Mom is having surgery tomorrow and I am traveling at the end of the week. I actually may get caught up on some reading and writing.... The Artist Way reading. I have been good and working on my morning pages thanks to the encouragement of Jamie Ridler of Jamie Ridler Studios and her Facebook page.

Well, time for bed.... Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!


  1. I like what you are doing and the quote. The Artist's Way is great! I hope your mom is okay and the surgery goes well.

  2. That happens to me too - when I'm working on one thing then another jumps in to my mind. I too love those morning pages!

  3. Karen - looks great, and I'm thinking I would like to try that fabric project, yet one more distraction! Happy flying!

  4. How is Annette doing? I still pray for her every night! Morning Pages can be amazing. Love the tangle you worked on, on the road.

  5. Trece.. Thanks for asking about my S-I-L. She hand her last chemo two weeks ago and has a break and the starts the next treatment... Radiation. Thanks for the prays!
