AEDM 2011: Day 19 Mary is Home

"Mary of the Earth" by Debbie from Geckostone arrived today. She is even more magnificent in real life.
For Art Every Day Month I show each day what I created the day before. My table on Nov 18th. I got my foam stamps out. I´m using more and more scrapbooking materials. Who knows? I might even scrapbook again this month.
I´ve always admired how Leah Piken Kolidas brings her figures out of the ink blots. Click here to watch her video on the process.
I was looking at the cardboard mat I use when I paint and ... I saw him! I was already half way drawing him when I remembered to take a pic.
"I was always here." That is exactly where he has been all this time. I added the words in acrylics applied with foam alphs stamps (Making Memories).
Also stamped with Tim Holz´s distress inks and did the "gesso over it" thing.
I had some paint left and paper from yesterday´s piece, so I completed an ATC.

Your Mary is lovely Paula.

Very clever project using the foam stamps - I really should make more use of mine.

I haven't visited your blog in what seems like forever. Me and the internet have not been spending much time together lately. I must say that seeing what you've been up to while I've been away has been so inspiring. You are creating up a storm!! And continuing with The Artist's Way so bravely. I'm hoping that I'll eventually get back to it. Thanks for the inspiration!
