Journal 7-11-14 The begining

Well I have been half assed getting back into shape. I bought a bike with visions of daily early morning bike rides. I wasn't working out, partly due to me, partly due to the almost constant rain we have been having in south florida, and the 90 plus degree heat. My plans to bike my … Continue reading Journal 7-11-14 The begining

Perception. What is it? Everything!

Over a period of time approximately one year I will transform my body from an ordinary woman: a slightly overweight mom, into society’s version of the perfect woman- a hyper sexualized, thin, well-toned woman with large breasts and long hair. My transformation will be documented in a series of photographs and journals. On it’s surface … Continue reading Perception. What is it? Everything!

Trash to Treasure

Ok, I was bad, yet again I forgot to take before pictures of the piece I was working on. My friend gave me this beautiful mirror, it started off life being white. In this case I didn’t rescue some ugly thing , the mirror was beautiful to begin with I just made it amazing. I knew I wanted to the mirror in a bright yellow and I came across the perfect color in the unwanted paint section at home Depot for $2, Behr’s Preium Plus Ultra in a

delicious yellow-orange. Home Depot makes great paint I have tried three different brands and they were all  Stellar. That’s why I drive  a mile out of my way to get my paint. A mile isn’t that far right? They also have $2 quarts and $.50 samples in the paint reject pile, the best deal in town.  I wrote a whole post about my favorite paints read…

This is my second mosaic, not bad huh?

This is The Other Table  that I nicknamed the Beauty ( making refrence to my other post THE

TABLE my first epic stenciled table). I saw this picture years ago (just look at the wrinkles in that picture) of a Koi fish mosaic by Audrey Di Angelo that I thought was amazing and magical. I wanted something like that and I knew I could make it. After all I am an Artist and I am obsessed by Koi and gold fish, having three beautiful Koi of my own.  I was also quite inspired by Susan Wechsler Mosaics check her out, her work is divine.

So years later I finally have the time and the opportunity  to make it. As usual I don’t know what I am doing and hit the internet for advise. First to find little tiles to make the detail that I want…

How do you dress up Unfinished Framed? Stencils of course!

So I came across these awesome picture frames in Michaels and I knew immediately I wanted to stencil them. I bought a big pile . I tore myself away from Stenciling my table I wanted a simple project.I figured I would do a few, NINE frames later (one was a mosaic). I guess I don’t know how to do a little of anything. I wanted to do several diffident colors and I was really excited to do the treatment of stenciling first and then

applying the stain over that. It creates a wonderful soft vintage feel. So I lined them up and painted. I love the Home DepotMartha Stewart and Glidden Duo. Then I stenciled, sorry I didn’t take picture of the stenciling I was too excited to get things done. I painted and painted and Stenciled and Stenciled. I guess this is more a before and…
