On another note, apparently the Stone House Window collage at the top part of this blog is pictured in the new issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors. I was told there is an article about Virginia Spiegel's benefit auction for the American Cancer Society and this piece is one of the collages featured. To find out more about this benefit please check out the following link: http://www.virginiaspiegel.com/NewFiles/ACSFundraiser.html

On another note I rusted some silk organza yesterday and like how it turned out (husband did have to call me at work to inquire what was in that old rusted tin sitting out in the sun). Right now I'm not sure how I'm going to use this but the thought of revisiting my fascination with cairn and standing stones has resurfaced. This organza might make some great ethereal appearing stone images....we shall see.....

It was a lazy kind of weekend here in the Aumick home. Didn't really get much accomplished in regards to cleaning, organizing and getting-things-in-order but who cares?! It was a gorgeous day on Saturday and we went tooling around back roads, stopping for a picnic lunch and poking around in shops. Today it's much more overcast and just a quiet, mellow kind of day. I did get these 2 ATC's done - I do love sitting on the back porch, rocking away while hand sewing...doesn't get much better than that! Both of these are currently listed for sale in my Etsy store.

The piece above was created using more gelatin printed cloth I printed this weekend.
Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Last night this collage came together. The background is one of the gelatin printed papers I did a couple of weeks ago and the image is a photo I took of an old building in the Catskill mountains. It's secured onto a painted artist's canvas.
Now it's time to start the work week (sigh). Happy Monday to all!

This piece definitely needs some design/compostion work but I wanted to share more of my gelatin printing adventures. I still have a long ways to go before I feel comfortable with this art method but the possibilities still excite me.
Have a good Friday everyone!
