Back to my Hands AB

Can you believe the first month of 2010 is half over? It doesn't seem possible.

After taking a several day hiatus from making art, I returned to my Hands AB last night. I cut two different, but similarly painted sheets of deli paper into four sheets each and adhered them to the two pages. I keep getting these same images in my trade magazines. I'm trying to come up with different ways to use them, because I really like them. For the first spread, I used the original image cut from the magazine, and doctored it with a stenciled caption that covered the ad underneath. This post documents the second time I used it.

Today's blog is really fun. The Queen of Arts, Kim Mailhot, will entertain you with her painted rocks and art journals.

wonderful pages Elizabeth, each of these hands is so very expressive!
In my clean up yesterday (OH MY!) I found some sheets of deli paper I have been wanting to play with. Between you and Marilynn I am very inspired ... it will be a few more days of cleaning up ... but I do not know how long I can wait to play!
