Hello Dear Hearts! It feels like it's been years--but in truth, simply a few busy weeks! Here's what's been stirring stirring stirring in the studio:
A spider lady revamp! The hoop frame was doing nothing for me--so I created a scrolly paper frame to house the spider goddess instead. Ahhhh, much better!
Etching intaglio plates, making proofs, and printing a small handmade book entitled, "This is WE: Prayers for Isis" for my Print and Narrative Forms course. I'm really enjoying the depth of line and happy accidents that occur with this method of printmaking. Tomorrow I finish printing the images and begin the process of hand coloring.
We're studying tie dying techniquest in my Fibers class. So I've been dying fabric and stitching bits and pieces together to make a Veil for Hecate. I've always wanted to make a wearable work! Last night I began the proccess of starching more cheese cloth to create a cobwebby crown that will sit on top of the head peice. Then on to beading!
And between meetings, class, work and studio time, I've been stealing quiet moments in the evening to DIVE into Women Who Run With the Wolves. As the Great Maya Angelou said, "Everyone who can read should read this book." Talk about an endorsement! If you haven't paged through it alreay, all I can say is it isTruly amazing mind twistin' stuff that your girl guts will Love.
the Winner of the Herspeak Goddess Give Away is:
Our Lovely 3rd Eye Muse! Hooray!
With school winding down to it's last week I'm cooking up more goddess goodies as week speak, so stay tuned for more give away treats! Now do tell me what you've been crafting in your studios, jotting in your journals and daydreaming about!
Until Next Time~
Much Joy and Merry Making, Friends!
