Attaching your paper artwork to a hard surface.

Hello Everyone,

Happy Thursday, I was asked by a friend if I could help her attach a paper painting or a print to a cradle board, or any other hard surface. That way your painting can be hung on a wall, and does not have to be framed. So I decided to make a video, because I am so much better at doing than talking 🙂

The supply list for things you will need

Your painting or print

Scissors, pencil

Gesso, brushes, colors of choice that will match the color scheme of the artwork

Matte medium, Soft gel

Tissue paper, if you have used it in your artwork, like I did

By the way, the artwork I am using will be available to bid on in our June online auction

Woodland Wonders on June 3rd.

Looking for Expression

I think I started my Expressions Class back in February this year and now it’s May. So little embarrassed to say, it has taken over three months to compete it, and today I have finally uploaded the final video. It is in the portrait that I tried to paint in the style of Wabi-sabi.

Wabi-sabi is described as the art of beauty and imperfection. It denotes asymmetry, melancholy, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. It’s aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

So here she is, let me know if I succeeded.
