Full Moon Rising - Oct BJP

This month I was thinking about how we had a Harvest Moon. The light from the moon is so brilliant. As I started my October project, we were enjoying yet another full moon. It seemed as if daylight had occurred and all the energies were being released to shine upon us. My piece this month celebrates our full moons. The Goddess presents the full moon to us.

Pillow talk Lariat

These little pillow beads on the end of the lariat were originally for a necklace. After making several, I decided a lariat would be a fun change to my repetoire. The beads are strung into a twisted Ndebele lariat. The lariat stays together with a square stitched bolo contraption that I thought up.

VooDoo Doll Class

I spent a full day with artist, Cindy Kovack. She calls her art "recycled artistic oddities" using bits and bobs of things normally thrown out. This doll has been painted several times and adorned to the hilt. It has shades of artist, Michael deMeng, don't you think?

Figure collage

This collage takes a figure from a magazine and changes its appearance using different papers. Another fun and inspiration class.

Recycled & Distressed Papers

A collage of paper fun from a class offered by Cindy Kovack.
Painting, tearing, creasing, folding. Yea! We love mixed media.
