AEDM and a New Canvas

I finished my four altered CDs yesterday and have a good feeling about them. The themes are music, art, beauty and Gold Rush. I wrote over the Gold Rush text in the upper right with a Zig marker because it kind of got lost in the Mica D'Lights. I've never worked with these little flakes and really like them, but I think a little less would have been better. I added the musical note to the music themed CD and am pleased with how it looks. Now all I have to do is decide what kind of paper I am going to adhere to the back so that it is decorative, but not too busy to put my info onto.

Later last evening (I seem to get creative late at night), I started an 11 x 14 canvas panel. I didn't have a plan, I just started playing with color and collage and I think this one is asking to be called Play. It is not done yet. I think it probably wants more layers and maybe the players not quite so isolated.

However, today I am babysitting both girls most of the day. I have promised the 5 year old that we will work on an art project (I think I will give her a small, blank canvas and some water soluble oil pastels) so I won't be working on mine until later or Friday. We are doing Thanksgiving at our house so there is also some cleaning to do.

I'm not sure I will be getting any art done in the next day or two, but you never know. These little girls have to sleep sometime. *-)

Until I see you again, don't forget to live in the moment.


  1. ooooh, art with little ones! I have a canvas hanging from grandson when he was 2 (he's now 6). Alas, he is not heavily inclined toward art - but his canvas is wonderfully abstract and energetic (what else from a 2 year old, right?) Your CDs are so whimsical! Love Gold Rush!

  2. i'm liking your canvas panel thus far! have a great holiday!

  3. Hi Vicki, ALL your CD art works are fantastic! I see your little sunshine is shining brightly! :o) and the gold one is brilliant. Bravo!!

  4. The altered CD's have turned out fantastic - I am feeling very inspired by what you have done. I'm just amazed at how much you get done while looking after your grandchildren!
