From Here to There...

Artist Darlene K Campbell recently put up a series of posts on her blog showing step-by-step how she created an artwork that started like this...


became this...


and ended up like this...


I always love to see the artist's process but I was especially stoked by this transformation because Darlene created this by following along on my workshop DVD Easy Mixed Media Surface Techniques.


If you would like to follow Darlene step-by-step, you can work backwards through her blog. Or you can click through the following numbered links to see the postings from start to finish: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

I love how she put her own twist on the method and was able to use what she already had on hand by creatively substituting some tools and supplies. Thanks so much Darlene -- this is the first time I have gotten to see how another artist applied this process.

Ah Seth, I just got home and found this present waiting for me.You did a beautiful job highlighting this. It's an artist's dream to be highlighted on your blog. SEveral years ago when I first started hearing about you I thought to myself how I'd like to be on your blog or in one of your books...and here I am. Your DVD is the best and can't wait to start work on the other one, "Easy Mixed Media Techniques for the JOurnal." Merci.
Cheers,
Darlene

Fascinating. Am always interested in the "here to there" process.

Me too Maureen and I told Seth as I was working through his steps of layering that I kept asking myself outloud, "Are we there yet?" ha ha He certainly knows how to build layers.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog.

This is an incredible piece, I am a huge fan of layers, and always try to encourage others to use lots of them lol
