Archive for the ‘WSP’ Category

Each month our group responds to a suggested theme and technique for creating a postcard or other small piece of art. We have had lots of sharing of inspiration including a great ’15 minutes of fame’ from member Carol. Thank you Carol for sharing all your amazing artwork with us today.

February’s theme was Wings and the technique: layers and collage

March’s theme was Symbols or icons, technique metals and foils

Our April theme for today was ‘Dancing the night away’ and the technique bejewelled.

As always there was lots of eye candy from the previous months’ stitching as well as some interesting in process works, all very different interpretations of the themes.

WSP and Paperclay

For July we again brought along equipment for for making impressions, this time in paper clay and water soluble paper (WSP). Six ladies braved the winter weather (many have gone north to warmer climes) and enthusiastically experimented with the two mediums.

Carmel had a lovely book cover she had made some time ago with the WSP pressed on to the lid of a wooden carved box. (I didn’t get a photo, I’ll post it next time). I can remember these boxes being very much the the rage when I was a teenager, I’ll have to ask Mum if mine is at home somewhere!! I’ll also be keeping a lookout in the Op Shops for some.

Firstly these are some WSP (on the right): from a meat tray, rubber stamp and rubbing plate.

On the left are paperclay: a rubber stamp which still had ink on it, a rubbing plate and the lid of the wooden box.
