Loving my iphone more and more each day. Finding out things about this little guy that are fitting right into how I live my life. It's just fabulous! Things I thought I wouldn't use, I'm finding that they are replacing scattering things all over the place. I click 'on' and there is my world sitting in my hand. Wow, who knew! And on the oopsiedoodle (my brother's word) side, the phone goes to my studio and is looking like it, but hey, pristine is not my MO, so that's okay! A bit of paint, pencil, etc., doesn't hurt anything. It's like crappy looking luggage, nobody else really wants it! AND my newest app is the 'hipstamatic' camera app. My oh my, do I love it! I know there are other fans out there and I can certainly see why.
And now for a bit of art! You know my waxy creations I've been doing?, well, they mostly fell apart - bad fusing and probably not a good surface, etc, etc., BUT!!!, after peeling off the wax that cracked, the surfaces that I was left with are WAY BETTER!! It would be almost worth going through this whole process again to get this kind of material to collage with. AND I have found the best glue - It's a PVA white glue and it is heavy duty - reminds me of some glue I used in Canada a couple of years ago which I was never able to find when I got back home. Since I'm not product oriented and am really about just messing around in my 'art lab' these are the things I love to discover. The photo below is a detail of new work I'm in the process of doing. These are pieces ripped from the original wax pieces and the wax peeled off. There is still a very thin coat of bees wax so it's still waxy heaven! On my way to better fusing and more discoveries!
Detail of work in progress, mixed media collage on board with hints of bees wax!
just added this little video I shot with my, wait for it, IPHONE!! and it shows me pulling apart one of the waxed pieces - It's a weeny video, but you get the idea......
