That's the sound of finally getting back into the studios! I've learned that after a couple months off there is so much catching up that it takes a couple weeks to start drawing on the creative energy. I completed the fiber part of a clay tote vase this weekend, then went on to work on some foil, something Sue had inspired this summer and I'd been wanting to try for weeks. When I bought some New England coffee it reminded me of Sue's post using kitchen foil for her work.
I opened the empty wrapping, crunched it up then applied layers of acrylic paint using an old toothbrush.
Once dry I made some quick additions of my favorite doodle shape using a felt marker and then added some stamp ink; first with the stamp pad itself (no stamp, just dabbed the pad around) and then with a flower stamp I found in my stuff. I had the foil on a the ironing board and on top of a towel so the stamping would not be very distinct, I just wanted to add suggestions of pattern. Plan is to cut this piece into a few strips, reverse the direction a couple times and stitch it back together. From there, I don't know what it will become but the process has been fun.
