Art Journal Page and Clown Assemblage Art

Hi blog viewers,

I want you to know that I appreciate that you view my blogs even though you don't comment. But I wish someone would say something! That's enough of that for now.

I created this piece of assemblage art last week. It took me quite a while between painting, gluing, and drying time. Sorry about the change in font, but I just pasted this from some other document and I don't know how to change the font in blogger (yet). Anyway ... For his head, hair, nose, and shoes I used Crayola Model Magic, a modeling material that can be air dried.  I used recycled wooden pieces from an old shadow box that I bought in a thrift shop. I painted them with acrylic paint and covered everything--including the face, hair and shoes--with Mod Podge. And … I used super glue to adhere everything together, even to adhere the paper clips into their holes for the arms. For the hat, I glued a large sequin and a rubber whatchamacallit together and stuck a fake flower out of the top. I used markers to paint the face, and a piece of wire ribbon for the part of the costume that goes around the clown's neck. It was fun to make.
I may change the arms to pipe cleaners or something else. If I do, I'll
re-post the photo. The stand was something that I recycled from who-knows-what.

This is a page I recently did in my art journal, based on a garden I planted several years ago. There's acrylic paints on it, torn paper on it, a doily on it, and the photo of my garden on it. I thought the colors went really well together. As you can see, I call it "How did my garden grow?"

We had a few inches of snow last night. We're lucky that we didn't have the blizzard that Boston and other New England, USA areas got!

How is the weather where you live?

Til next time, see you soon--Deb
