La La La

I love this fun name for an onlne class.  The link gives more details.  This is the 3rd Suzi Blu class that I have taken.The   other courses, required drawing which was great but this time templates are provided. You get to play with all the art materials you have ever bought. I have a lot but needed to buy one or two more things. For example, I needed coloured encaustic wax but I have had the little craft iron for several years, which had never been used.  Ironing wax is way more fun than clothes.

I was  on the boat, so I took a rubbermaid container with paint brushes, acrylic paint, matte medium, glue stick, pencil crayons, pieces of wood to work on, canvases, encaustic wax, a little iron, coloured scrap book paper, sequins, rhinestones and some paper doily tape.  The templates, scissors, instructions and I thought my usb key with the videos.  Didn’t seem to have that when I needed it. So from there I just winged it.

So for a few nights, I spent an hour, playing with art supplies. . The time just flew and I missed it when I didn’t have a chance to work on another “art Piece” I am currently working on a couple of little boy dolls, one with a boat and the other with a sword and shield.

I found one art store in Sydney and bought a couple of missing pencil crayons, a kneadble eraser and some Grafix Rub-onz, to make my own rub=on transfers. You make them with a laser or ink jet printer. So in a couple of months hope to give that a try.

Here is a picture of the little girls I did, don’t think it is finished yet.

    ‘La, La, La’ always makes think of someone covering their ears and singing so they don’t have to listen. Love your dolls…so much textural and color interest.
