MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

yeeewww????

Never let it be said that I'm afraid to get completely covered in yuck (of course the fact that I have disposable gloves IN the drawer didn't occur to me until AFTER the fact!!). 

BEHOLD.....

Perfectly good watercolour paper being sacrificed for the sake of art??

This unqualified example of mess is a combination of different yarns glopped (good word!) onto the paper with a mixture of white glue and water.  EVERYTHING is covered with it.  It got to the point where my fingers were sticking to each other, to say nothing about the scissors and the table and the brush and....well, you get the picture I'm sure.  I never had the pleasure of going to kindergarten so does this mean I'm in my second childhood?

The rest of my day has been spent throwing watercolour paint and water around with gay abandon and making yet another huge mess with gesso.

Colour me happy!!!!!!!!!!!

This looks appealing and, of course, a fish is in there. Looking forward to seeing what happens next. Glad to see you're back in the creative (messy?) mode.

You didn't use a paint brush? Gotta be fun.

Are you curious about me? said...

Are you going to use this as a collagraph plate? It would make a great print.

I still get a chance to be make a mess and get paid for it as I work in a Kindergarten with 3/4 year olds. Yesterday I introduced them to the fun of shaving foam printing. What ae you going to do with your creation now???

Oh that sounds like such a fun time! I'm so glad you got to make a mess :) It is freeing to just start "glopping" and seeing where it takes you. I love how that turned out, very underwater looking ... can't wait to see what you do next with it.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun though, sometimes making a mess just let's you relax and be in the moment, great idea using the yarn like that to make art.
I wonder if you could cover it with the tissue and glue and water like I use on my bookmarks, I bet that would be a great texture :)
