Sometimes Our Eyes Play Tricks On Us

I  have been tardy, MIA, gone or whatever life has brought on to us at timesI feel like I have totally neglected yall.   So welcome March, where did your friend of February go so quickly and you even had an extra day to play ?  There is a saying about March ~ in like a lamb out like a lion.  Guess we will see how it goes out this year.  Although for us I can almost 100 % say the wind will blow.  : )

I  think I have mentioned before about cloud watching and looking at the shapes that so quickly appear and disappear almost as fast as it developed.  Still love doing it though, seeing the animals, ships and different clowns in the clouds.   I am still taking the class of Book of Life from Tammy and all her artist friends, it will go all year and so I probably will be sharing more to you all along.   Mystele was last weeks teacher.  I have only gotten to watch the video but again, Miss doubting Thomas here thinking WHAT ?     I will never doubt again~promise.   Well, almost never anyway.  

In the class we are suppose to paint to our little hearts content with nothing in mind and see what crops up and then go from there to develop our painting.  Well I didn't have time last week to do that but did get some butcher paper and alchol inks and played.  Just a few drips and drabs here and there.  Of course I didn't have the special secret mixture you are suppose to blend the inks with but I thought OK, alchol with alchol ink should work. So I spread some around on the paper then dropped ink.  After it dried I was so totally amazed at what I saw.   Now mind you I did nothing but drop ink around on the paper. 

This is what I saw:  Lips, a panda bear or koala bear, a dog, prehistoric hieroglyphics ( horses or buffalo whatever I guess when you lived back then you painted) and two perfect eyes one for the dog and one for the bear. 


You will have to turn your page or head over to see the upside down oldie but goodie animals,  which ever is the easiest for you.   And what is funny is I didn't see the panda/koala until I photographed it.    So what do you see in this page?   It is a tad wrinkled it traveled a bit and will now find a restful place in my special box I have for Tammy's class.  Now this has to be pretty special art to have it's own box and not a plain one either.  The box has flowers on it like Irises and butterflies. 

There you go I just had to share this with you, not that I discovered America or anything but Mystele certainly did know what she was talking about.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today. xoxox

    1. Hi Netty, sorry I didn't think about that. It is treated paper, also called freezer paper. Paper on the outside and the inside is coated with something and is slick and shines. The butchers use to wrap up the meat in it but now it is just clear plastic and foam trays. Hope this helps my dear. If you can't get it I will gladly send you some of it. xo
