I joined the hop again with P. M. Artist studio and a bunch of other makers for the month of September and the Striking Sticks. This was so fun and I was happy to be back. It was like the idea to use sticks as a spine was there and waiting. If you remember the August project I did for Mrs. Sonya of Artsy Solutions and Multimedia Crafts Digital, I used sticks. I tried to make a raft, but my sticks were too small and it did good as driftwood.
As you can see, both projects are beach themed, but this one was a little more scary than the August project. Have you ever done something once and tell yourself you can’t do it again? This was one of those moments. I was so scared. I did it though and I’m so proud of myself. Would you believe that I painted another beach scene after this?
For this project I used jute twine, Himalayan pink salt, texture paste, gesso, paints, cheesecloth, coffee dyed paper, one of my digitals called My Desk Travel Journal, and my Bakers & Crafters sprays. I do have a flip-thrpugh video and a four part process video series. If you’d like to watch those, I’ll post the videos below.
