Free Tutorials Page on my arts website Outlook8studio. Experimenting with Paint & Shellac.
Experimentation & New Free Tutorials Page. My blog updates have been scarce lately, as, Ive been studying a couple of arts business and creative courses. This week I created a new “Free Tutorials” on my Outlook8studio website , where I share some of my favorite, creative ideas and things to do.
I’ve also, been experimenting with shellac and acrylic paints in the studio
and plan to create some textile and sculpture pieces too.
My favourite thing to make on Free Tutorials is my large studio easel. I created it when I built my studio in 2000. I wanted something big, so I could work on many paintings at once. It’s a bit slap happy, (I’m no carpenter) but, works perfectly for me.
Creating and sewing with hand painted papers. After seeing this video from Mary Ann Moss I am inspired to paint some papers, get out the sewing machine and see where it takes me. Collage, book making ?
My beautiful large round tags are made from thick sturdy cardboard, aged in a dye bath then, baked in the oven and inked, to make even more rustic. Decorated with 1950’s Christmas rubber stamps. All topped off with strands of aged jute string to tie or hang
Each of my round tags feature a different design. Reindeer, angels, koalas, platypus, holly, retro family, sleigh, Christmas bells, snowdrops and vintage greetings.
Add a touch of old world Christmas to your tree, gifts, art books, journals, mixed media work etc.
