and using my Judikins “Klimt Sisters” (2677H) rubber stamp I stamped twice onto plain paper using two different sized round paper punches making circles to add to my pages…

  9. Holy cow, Patty. What started out as an abstract, turned into a fantastic winter wonderland. I was amazed at how you pulled it all together.

    I see you ARE playing around with punches. I don’t have many, but the ones I have I use a lot. And your use of these two show how versatile punches can be. Inspiration everywhere I look at your place.


  10. A fantastic spread Patty! Thank you very much for sharing with us at Art Journal Journey!


  11. Well, wahey, Patty, you really went to town here. A great abstract start turned into a very detailed artwork. The circle pictures and the lettering is outstanding and the little circles and dots spice it up too.
    Very inspiring indeed.
    Thanks for the link to the video which I will now investigate.

  16. Oh Patty, like a whirlwind of winter storm , and dreamlike happenings,-wonderfully done with a “free” hand just following your feel to paint without any goal. I love the Klimt girls, they are like ice princesses , whirling round in a fatamorgana . So different and amazing.
