I have been working on lots of different items recently in order to try and build up my stock for forthcoming art & craft fairs over the summer (wet as it is right now). I have not yet uploaded any of these items to any web-sites, or onto my Etsy shop, as I want to keep them exclusively for exhibitions. However, I thought I'd at least take some pics to show you what I've been working on, as it's been a while since I posted on here.
I am working on 3 of these magnetic shopping pads, but the third one only has a base coat on at the moment so I thought I would leave that one out of the shot.
As you can see with these decorated A6 sized note-books, I appear to have developed a style of almost mosaic-like qualities! I am a bit obsessed with dots and circles actually, and often incorporate them in my abstract paintings - these particular decorations have been applied using a metallic acrylic craft paint. I love the 3D effect they have.
Alongside these, I have been working on a background painting (now complete, ready for posting) as part of a collaboration piece between myself and fellow rogue gene collective artist, Kosana Marton. Also, I have made a start on painting a paper cup ready for an exhibition to be held over the next couple of months. No more details on that as yet - I need to experiment with a few to begin with, I may enter more than one if allowed and will need to decide which design works best. The idea is to decorate a paper cup in any way you like, but to retain the basic shape, i.e. it needs to still be recognisable as a paper cup. It sounded like a fun idea so I thought I'd join in!
