I have a bee helmet. When it is not being used for preventing Bees from getting in my neck, it can be used to pretend I am an Edwardian woman on Safari. I am feeling a bit German with my Capitalization right now.
The owner of the bees in our backyard bought this for us because I mentioned I might have to borrow hers when I had to do the weeding in the garden around the bee hive. I wasn't expecting this gift and it is crazy. I keep forgetting I have it on.
Seriously though, back to studio work. We continue to pursue fooling around with altering books. Here are a bunch of images for your enjoyment. We are adding stenciled text to the pages. I have used Gesso as an under surface before adding markers or Inktense watercolour pencils to adorn each letter.
|Unikkaaq translated from Inuktikut language means "tell a story" From my understanding of first nation traditions, one must ask a story teller for a story before it can commence. It is the proper etiquette.|
|Qujjuk means whale. Unfortunately, the one "J" on the left turned into a candy cane. I wasn't looking for that to happen and it is a bit disappointing. But this stenciling business is kind of fun.|
