Bullet Journal

Recently I’ve been bullet journaling (if you don’t know what a bullet journal is, it’s basically an artsier journal and it’s gotten very popular lately) but I’ve just got a new journal and decided to make this one prettier so it’s blog worthy. This is the first month I have in here and it’s space…

Printmaking Project Part 5

    These are some of my favourite prints from today. For my final project I need to pick 10 of my favourite prints and so far I have a solid black, the black and white one at the very top, the bottom gold one, (possibly) the grey and black one, and (possibly) the red,…

Fairytale

I’ve been thinking a lot about what my study will be for grade 12 art and (so far) I’ve decided on fairytales (and playing off this idea by showing darker elements, using irony, focusing on lesser known ones, or applying it to real life etc) so I decided to do a couple small (about the…

Printmaking Project Part 4

I decided to skip embossing; I was originally planning to emboss and printmake, but due to a lack of time I am only doing printmaking now. I’ve started my first few basic prints that I can leave or print on top of and as well I printed a few basic backgrounds to print on top…

Printmaking Project Part 3

I’m done carving (at least until I do my first print and see how it turns out). I really love my design and detail but I’m worried that it may not show up. I should have my first few prints completed in the next few days though and will post them as I make them….

Collage Part 2

I’ve finished my post-secret inspired collage. Since last post I added the rest of the clocks on the body, used gloss medium and black paint over the body, and added the text. When I first finished adding the clocks I was not happy with how it turned out so I used the black paint to…

Printmaking Project Part 2

Update on the stamp making process: I am almost finished carving and am working on adding details such as the spots on the dog. I am very anxious to see how it will actually turn out when I printmake with it.

Collage Part 1

We have started a post-secrets inspired collage project. This collage is incomplete as of right now but it is due in six days so I will be posting the completed version soon. The “secret” behind my collage is the fact that I have nightmare in which I am late. As part of the design we…

Printmaking Project Part 1

Currently I am working on a printmaking project as well as a collage. For this project I took the original image of the dog looking out the gate, did a rough sketch to plan out my design, sketched it again on the linoleum piece and started to carve out (its unfinished currently). Carving so far…

Clay Part 5

My cat has been glazed and installed in the school. I really love the glaze. Although it’s not what I expected, its not too loud or too plain (in my opinion) and worked well with the structure of my cat. Having the darker colour as the base coat really helped because it got in all…
