I've started my studio time by watching videos on stencil making particularly katazome. My mulberry papers has been gone several moves ago. (one of those if I haven't used it by now, give it away moments). Katazome uses mulberry paper. I woke up thinking about turning my face sketches into stencils this morning. I have used file folders, acetate sheets, and stencil sheets in the past. I can only recall using one on a small graffiti quilt named "Do Not Fear the Intellectual". It was a journal size quilt and I have no clue where it got to. Hopefully it was one I sold from the Mellwood studio as that is the last time I recall seeing it.
Anyways, I'm back to my School of Art activities. Here is my curriculum: (links will take you to Amazon)
Zentangle A Day, Mixed Media Portraits, Crochet Workshop, Piecing and Creative Strength Training. I have yet to find a consistent rhythm for days and times so I snatch time daily even if its just 30 minutes. Mornings seem to be my best time now. Here is the sketch I'm returning to in just a bit. I'm also going to start another side sketch.
I'm going to do another side view sketch before I advance to the next chapter in Mixed Media Portraits.
Naw, this tea ain't gonna do it. Peace.
