Art Party Weekend

I told dj this weekend I was going to put my feet up like she did and do some sketches. Also told her that I snipped my models out of the sales ad in the newspaper last week and only took those with no teeth.
dj got a chuckle out of that and pictured me sketching old, toothless people. Pretty funny and I just might do that. But not this time. I'm pleased with my results. I wasn't trying to get a likeness, just a human.
This is a good "put your feet up" and play art project and I will be doing more. These are pretty raw pencil sketches and the photo quality is poor but I have no scanner here at home.

Since I didn't have a scanner to scan and print one to play with, I used pattern tissue and traced one and made this purse. I plan to add straps but I'm still thinking on that.

This wasn't my first try at dj's fusing technique. I did a page in my Book of Dreams and the gutted book that I posted last Sunday was fusing. It is so much fun. The only thing, you have to do a little planning and I usually don't think that far ahead with composition. I just do it.
More later,
