Jane Dunnewold has opened a Creative Strength training summer camp on Facebook. I joined, and the first prompt was about using sticks. I hate picking up sticks, but I did (several wheelbarrows full) and I decided to make a quick study using some scraps that have misty fuse on the back. Wanted to focus on negative space and layer several 'sticks' on top of each other like the ones I pick up and throw on the burn pile.
Here's step one:
Step 3: Layering and adding a new color.
And step 4: Need to know when to stop!
I like this, but wish I could add layers without covering so much of what is beneath. Anyway, it was a fun and quick process, and I enjoyed it. I was rebellious and didn't follow the directions to make a sculpture of actual sticks, but having handled so many sticks yesterday, I wanted to work with FABRIC sticks today! Thank you Jane, for the fun challenge!!
