Painting Over - WOYWW

Painting Over or Over Painting

My work desk is overflowing with  beads, thread, sari cloth and found objects from the past few weeks of creating for the fabulous show at Frills in Taylor last night.  Which, I might add, was a huge success!  So many of our friends, new and old, came out to peruse our goods and party with us.

Now my work desk is full of paper, gesso and gel medium.  I am implementing a technique I learned on line from the fabulous Sharon HERE to see her blog and all the great classes she offers.

I'm just getting started on this one so I will give you a sneak peek of the first two processes.
First you clip or tear images from magazines..mine should have overlapped more...oh well....then you glue them down on your substrate with gel medium.  Let this dry and then paint over with a diluted mix of water and gesso. You want to camouflage as much as possible because of copyright laws!!!

As you can see,,,this is a work in progress and you will have to stay tuned to see the finished product.
In the meantime,,,hop on over to see what others are doing around the world and what they have on their work desks HERE !
