10″x8″, acrylic on silkish material

I’ve always like the number 13, so having it be Friday, too, is even better!

This might be the last piece of silk or silk-wannabe material I have on hand. I scraped transparent acrylic paint onto the material, then did some block printing with acrylic on top of that. I cut one small new block that I used in a repeat horizontally across the piece, then used part of an existing block here and there in the magenta color.

I like this new blend of scraping and block-printing, and using paint on silk (even though it can get a little puckery, like this one did). Probably something I wouldn’t have tried right now if not for the daily janes!

And…I just set up an automatic weekly newsletter for subscribers. If you type your email address into the subscription box in the left column (and confirm the subscription by clicking the link in the email you receive), every Friday you’ll get an automatic email recap with links and images of the daily janes for the past week. Sign up! And I will do my best to make something every day that you’ll want to see!
