Frida Progress.....

Happy Tuesday!  The kids had their Fall break last week, so I did very little in the way of painting.  But today and yesterday, I managed to get Lisa's pages for our traveling books almost done.

 Here's a detail of the page I'm working on now- It will be a "Frida Shrine" surrounded with moon flowers and grounded with a quote- I haven't chosen the quote yet- any thoughts, suggestions?

  Overview of how this page looks with a moth from the piece before it peeking through....
 And the page I shared before with the brown of this page showing through- 
this is where you'll get peeks of the quote...

Hopefully, I'll be able to finish this in time to be part of Paint Party Friday- fingers crossed!

It's already stunning Steph, can't wait to see it completed! You've done a wonderful job on Frida - her skin tones are beautiful, with that lovely subtle wash of colour on her cheeks. I'm not sure about a quote, maybe something zen-like - it feels very still and peaceful.

I feel so lucky...being the next person to see this in "real life"...I can't wait! (You would think it was MY journal :)

Lisa will absolutely love it! You have captured Frida so perfectly.

This is a true work of art. I'm always in love with what you make, and this is no exception. I know Lisa is going to love it.

You asked why I removed the backing from my stamps. I didn't. Kathy removed all of her wood backings because she said they take up so much more room. I have never removed a wood backing. The images you saw, I bought unmounted. Kathy adds a foam backing to her stamps, which will stick on her acrylic blocks. I don't add anything to mine, except Wacky Tac, a repositionable glue that dries sticky and is made for scrapbookers who want to move photos around. I use it on the back of my rubber stamps, but NEVER acrylic stamps. I am a big fan of stamps that come on wooden blocks, because I think they stamp better. Kathy prefers the foam and no wood. I forgot to ask her what company makes the foam, but it is sticky and adheres to the rubber. The back side somehow stays on the acrylic block, too, but it's not sticky. Did that help?

Lisa will love this one Stephanie. You have used some clever painting tricks and it is turning out great! Wonder what the quote will be?

I'm totally jealous Lisa. But I know that I've got a really cool "Stephanie Mealor Corder" coming my way (some day!) in the way of our sketchbooks ;)

This is GORGEOUS!! but I'm all out of deep thoughts for the quote right now. ;) I know you'll pick just the right one.
