My Vacation Art Time

I just got back from my vacation from South Padre Island Texas . I was thinking that it may rain or I may have some free time so I quickly filled up a gallon size baggie full of trim , buttons , needle , floss , a tin of watercolor paint , a small bottle of Golden , some pencils , a few photo's , postcard copies , an old magazine with lots of advertisements and one pad of watercolor paper and threw it in my suitcase . With in no time of arriving at our condo I had it out and allover the floor ! When the feeling moved me I played with my goodies .. I even thought to try a transfer on a smooth rock and it worked pretty well ! The inside of a clam shell worked also but needs some refining . It was nice to just play around when I felt like it with no interruptions or rushing to do something because of a household chore or kids demanding something !
The Sweet Little friend I made ! Transfer in a clamshell with a little watercolor highlights .
Transfer on rock ... kinda looks like Freud !
My bag of goodies !

Unfinished ..... Transfer and collage

Unfinished Transfer and collage , circles from my wine bottle cork stamp !! Yummy wine !
Almost finished this one , needs a little tweaking , ran out of glue so I sewed trims onto the paper .The cow with the fancy hat is a transfer from one of my favorite postcards .
