Fascinating Frida

Today is T for tuesday over at Altered book lover.  I haven't been very consistent about joining in, so today I am including a vintage cup of tea from The graphics fairy.
Hope  you enjoy your cuppa!
As some of you know, I have been doing Studying under the masters, hosted by Jeanne Oliver.  This week, we are studying Frida Kahlo with Jane Davenport.  Today I felt like doing a sketch of Frida, so this is my daily drawing and my Art Journal journey offering
I am also participating in Art Every Day Month, with a daily stitched square.  Here is today's
Generally, all I do for these is grab a square, grab some scraps that go with it, spend a few minutes arranging, then stitch them down and add some embellishment.  I am really enjoying finishing these.  It is time to sit quietly and just stitch.
Now Art Journaling.  I felt like a change today and got out my gelli plate and did some gelli prints, using some bamboo sprigs I had picked.
Then I used the prints, to create a stencil and some masks
I considered these my warm ups for today, because then I used the stencils and masks to create the art journal page.
I don't consider this finished, but I am love with this as a beginning.

Happy Creating!


  1. What a wonderful post, full of eye candy from beginning to end. Love everything, and of course, Frida is fantastic. I so enjoyed the Frida month we had at AJJ! Thanks for another stunning contribution to Art Journal Journey! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Holy cow. That Frida drawing blew me AWAY. You are a real artist. Of course, you knew that since I've been watching your drawings of fauna, but this was simply incredible.

    I like the square you created today, too. But those masks were simply wonderful, as was the journal page. Really enjoyed the visit because you produce SO much each day.

    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous art AND the tea cup for T this Tuesday.
