Printmaking class last weekend

Im always trying something new.

I did learn a lot both about cutting and printing.
The teacher was fabulous but her name is Elva and I think she is having
 exhibition in California just now.
You can see her page here

 Here you can see few of the prints I did make.
Hope you like what you see.














Printmaking is just fun.

Have a wonderful weekend.

My dolls made of clay :)

.

Im taking a class with Jeanne-Marie Webb, Soulbearer.
In the class we are working with self drying clay.
I love this class.

First I made one, Then I made two more.


I left them to dry over one night and then they were ready for paint..


The first layer was black as always when working with clay.
Then it was the second layer and the third and so on until I was happy.


Painting the face was the most difficult part. 
I think Im finished with her face but going to add more layers to her body.. 
And then I have two to paint :) 

Have a great week..

New painting..


This weekend was a painting weekend.

I had started this one few days ago but then lost the interest and kept it standing in my studio.

On Friday I did start again and didn't quit until finished..
And Im so happy with it.

Think this little dog is amazing, he is so much looking at me asking me to come and play just like my dog does all the time :)

Have a great week

Happy New Year to you.

This summer I have been painting a lot...


I took a class by lovely Jenny Grant but she was the host when I
 was in Stockholm last summer taking Tracy Verdugo´s class Paint Mojo. 


Jenny´s class was on Life Book, a year long class with
 new teacher every week and a lot of 
new method to learn in every class.


I wanted to use brighter colours and I did 
add a little gold on the Mandalas.


I like them but I feel like I´m not finished yet, 
have to add a little here and there..

Have a great week

Another Mixed Media Painting from Iceland

That is my second blog for Rubber Dance Stamp


Hello again. Sigga Dís from Iceland here, and this is my second 
Guest Designer project for Rubber Dance.


This time I made a different painting. 
Using soft colours and a little collage wings. 


I started using two blue/turquoise and one 
pink paint on a 300 gr. cold pressed 
watercolour paper from Daler Rowney.


Then I did some stamping, and I love these 
stamps from Rubber Dance.




Some details, don't you just love these stamps?


I left a little blank space where I drew a face, 
I love to draw faces.


A bit of white colour here and there.


Black outlining with paint.


Coloured her hair and dress.

Changed the colour of her dress:




After using my brayer adding some 
white colour here and there I wanted 
to add wings to my girl.


Had a little problem deciding where to 
add the wings. 
Used a black Posca pen around her eyes, 
nose and mouth.




Before I feel like finished I had to add a 
little text to my girl. 

It says.. 

Your wings already exist, all you have to do is fly...

Love this text...

Supplies I used:
Daler Rowney 300 gr. cold pressed watercolour paper
Golden fluid acrylic paint
Martha Steward paint
Brayer
Posca pen
Collage butterfly wings I found on the internet
Some brushes
Pencil
Golden gel medium for the wings

Here you can find me:

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a great day

Namaste,

Sigga Dís
