Last week I had some fun taking a class ironing plastic bags and bubble wrap together to make "fabric". Its makes for some interesting pieces that can be used for all sorts of things. I'm thinking of ways to use it for jewelry.

art play







I haven't done much with fiber lately-I've been spending time rekindling my desire to paint. I always been able to sketch and draw with pencils and markers, but can never seem to manipulate paint (of any kind) to do what I want it to do. Well, I found a wonderfully inspiring painter on Youtube. Her name is Mystele, and she started a ning network for artists. Through that I took a mini class she was teaching, and she shares many of her techniques on Youtube. I've been practicing and am enjoying the outcome. I'm looking to find my own style in the process. My mini paintings are for my personal use, but do resemble Mystele's work. I give her full credit for getting me used to painting "her way". Thanks Mystele.
