ART -n- SOUL
But today I celebrated my artistic side at Art and Soul. I took a wonderful lettering class with Lisa Engelbrecht. Lisa was featured in Quilting Arts Magazine Winter 2004, Issue Sixteen. I fell in love with her work then and last month I bought another magazine she was featured in. I saw her class at Art-n-Soul and felt compelled to sign up for the class especially since it was so close to home. What a great teacher!! She even signed my magazine. Her work was displayed on the walls right by me. You could just feel the artistry oozing out of each one and they were fantastic. I bought her dvd and in June she has a new book coming out. She will be teaching in Italy. We were allowed to see the book she will offer in the classes in Italy. Wish I could go. Wonder if her suitcase would have any room after packing all that scrumptious paints, dyes and supplies?
This is a door pic I took in the Caribbean and its a photo transfer onto fabric. The "dreams" saying is on vellum and glued on to the fabric. All the fabrics are color washed or walnut inked. In order to keep the walnut ink on I used a product called "No Flow."
The little boy pic was taken in Jamaica. He is a photo transfer to fabric also. Then while still wet I added yellow tissue paper to some areas. It looks distressed even more. It will lay on chocolate velvet and turquoise tissue paper.
