Textures, wire and stencils.

This journal spread has changes radically from its beginnings. I perhaps got a little carried away with bubble wrap. Regular size and the Giant size too! I got further inspired by a new book "Bent, Bound and Stitched" by Josie Cirincione. Great Book using a lot of supplies you already have lying around. I re-introduced myself to wire. I made some fun shapes and some lettering too. In this spread copper wire to spell ART.
This canvas started with a transfer from a magazine. Then it sat on the shelf for a long time till it caught my attention again. I have painted over it and then added the hair with walnut ink. While wet I tipped the canvas to have the walnut ink drift this way and that and making some really interesting patterns.
Here are a bunch of tidbits I have been playing with. Yummy textures. :)

Love these, the darker feel lends an air of mystery, very cool!
