On to what's happening in the studio this week. I forgot to mention that last month for my birthday, I bought myself a new toy, the Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine.
This week, I cut a couple of stencils.
These are images that I purchased in the Silhouette store (they're really inexpensive) and cut out using .005 ml stencil film. I have yet to cut a stencil that I've designed myself, but that will be one of the next tasks I teach myself.
I took a few minutes to play with my stencils on my Gelli plate.Here, I used them on the cover of one of my journals.
And here, on some simple copy paper.
The Cameo has some real potential to become an invaluable tool in my studio.
Finally, I want to show you the progress I'm making on my latest painting. I talked a little about it in last week's blog post, and I've moved along on it quite nicely this week, as well.
It still needs a lot of work before it's finished, and I'll show that as it happens.
This weekend, I will begin working on building a new design wall. I'll take lots of process photos and show them to you when the wall is complete.
In the meantime, create!
