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!
