Face a day February

 







If you not hear of this and I will admit I didn’t , there’s a challenge out in blog land to draw , paint or collage a face for each day in February. kea Pea at art foamies and Rubbermoon stamps got me on to it . 


And I’m hooked. I am not the great face drawer, I need to practice, 




And doing this every day is a great way for me to be disciplined enough to sit down and do a face every day.
#faceadayfeb2021

I can see this being something I do every year.

Blackbird






Blackbird by Wendy Aspinall 

 

Mixed media assemblage stretched canvas.

 

In the 1960’s Paul McCartney wrote the lyrics to this beautiful song, Blackbird.

Up until a few years ago it was just that, a nice song to me. I didn’t know the story that inspired Paul McCartney to put pen to paper. 

He has told the story many times after watching a news story in the UK about a group of nine African-American women who had to fight to go to a segregated high school.  

He and his fellow band members cared passionately about the civil rights movement. 

 



Now some 50 years later many of my fellow artistic friends care passionately about the civil rights movement. 

 

I can’t write a hit song but I can make a piece of art that I hope will get you thinking, talking and doing your bit to make this a better place for all the citizens of this beautiful country.

Spread LOVE not Hate

Spread Love not Hate by Wendy Aspinall

HELLO EVERYONEI am Wendy and I have come over from the
 Relics and Artifacts Muse design team to play with some of the 
Art Foamies and Rubbermoon stamps. 

We live in extraordinary times, each one of us can decide
 if we want to spread love in the world or hate.
 Never has loving thoughts and actions been so important to spread in the world.
 With this thought in my mind when I was asked to prepare a guest blog post for Art Foamies’s blog.
 I thought what if I made a key holder to place just near the door so as
 I picked up my keys to go out I would be reminded of this important message.


https://rubbermoonarts.blogspot.com/2021/01/spread-love-not-hate-by-wendy-aspinall.html?fbclid=IwAR1xmiJbV4ql37mVxziNuWYzSkdYOOHG1O_daaYVLqzXcIgHj4tEw94CN1s
Today's project features: 
I started by making some of my own printed tissues paper.
 I sprayed the tissue with Delusion Shimmer Inks in 
Hot Pink and Periwinkle Blue. 


When the tissues are dry I randomly stamped the tissues with Balzer Designs
 | Writer's Block and Kae Pea | Microcosms.
 Don’t be afraid to overlap the stamps. When dry, I added Distress Oxide Spray in
 Mustard Seed and let dry again. 
Tear the tissues in pieces. I especially like to use the tissues over
 white acrylic so when you glue them down they go transparent and make a beautiful effect
. But let’s get on with our Love not Hate key holder project. 

The canvas is approximately 4 x 4 inches, I started the first layer with white gesso,
 covering the whole canvas giving a smooth surface for the other layers to come


I added a layer of Craft Smart
 acrylic paint in Peacock Blue to the side 
and edge using a large flat brush. 
Let dry.
 Then I glued on the pieces of tissue with 
Mod Podge in Matte finish
 and added a layer of the glue
 over the whole surface
Next with white gesso, paint the shape of a heart onto the
 middle of the canvas. 


 Sandra Evertson | Ex Voto Heart stamps with more of the Delusio
 Shimmer Spray in Hot Pink and then brush on white.

 with StatzOn Ink in Jet Black and stamp over the previous impression. Let dry again.



Stamp out the saying with tiny alphabet stamps on card stock.
 Cut and glue onto heart. 


Add some water soluble wax crayon in yellow and green,
 blending it with your finger.
 Lastly I added some alcohol ink drips using 
Tim Holtz Adirondack Earth tones in Ginger.

Predrill a hole for the 7/8 inch cup hook and then screw in the hook.
 You may need a pair of pliers to tighten it.


Lastly staple a square of decorative paper on the back of the canvas
 and add a hanging fitting.


I used my favorite colors but this would look just as
 pretty in any color combination to suit your home.
 I hope you will have ago and spread your love where ever you go.




Hugs and LOVE 

Wendy
