Completed beer label canvas!
The quote is from W.C. Fields: “Everybody has to believe in something…I believe I’ll have another drink.”
Materials used: recycled stretched canvas (formerly a print), text pages, Mod Podge, acrylic paint, modeling paste, crackle medium, beer bottle caps & labels, nails and rub-on alphas.
Currently working on…a commission piece for a friend of my boyfriend. He wanted some artwork featuring beer labels for his home and provided me with some labels and caps to use. I decided to re-use an old canvas I had on hand (that one I tried making into something but fucked up instead? yeah, that one). It’s been layered with text pages, modeling paste, acrylic paint, crackle medium…
The last image here was the shading layer before I applied a layer of bright garnet acrylic (mixed it myself!) and the crackle medium. Once it’s all dry I’ll probably move on to the caps - which are going along the outside edge of the canvas. I am going to nail those suckers on!
She beat me to posting it, but here it is again! I’m framing this bad boy. I did love it, I do love it, and I will always love it. Please come over @bobephanie #badjonesrising #mailart
Yay, it got there. It feels so amazing when you find another artist who you click with and can send your dirty napkins to and know they’ll appreciate it.
Springy/Summery collage postcard batches completed yesterday & today. Well, the bottom ones might get a little more work. I’m going to be cutting back on packages and doing a lot more flat mail stuff: postcards and art cards and 1-stamp envelopes.

Sporty Vader is complete and ready for summer.
I’ve had this ceramic Vader head for awhile - over 4 years. It was a birthday present from my boyfriend (the first after we started dating) and purchased from some Etsy shop I can’t remember now.
I seem to recall sealing it with some sort of ceramic sealer back when I first got it, but the first coat of turquoise paint I laid on yesterday wasn’t sticking so I had to wash it off, re-prime it and start over. After that everything went smoothly. He’s covered in various shimmering mediums, sparkle top-coats and metallic silver washes for extra fabulosity.
