Another busy weekend has just passed, but I did manage to fit in a bit of time in the studio to start my Dime piece in my graffiti series. I did the first piece (see post here) with Yoshi, my current Future Dog Guide puppy, as the subject and I liked it so much that I've decided to make a keepsake piece for each of the puppies I foster. That of course meant I had to go back and do one for Dime, my first foster puppy.
This is one of my favourite pictures of Dime, so I had to incorporate it in the piece. I imported it into Photoshop and started having fun!
Once digitally altered, printed and transferred onto fabric, I pulled out some of the new acrylic paints from the DecoArt Media samples that were recently sent to me, and I started adding elements with various found objects, stencils, and a small paint brush to add to the digitally altered image I had created.
Hopefully I'll find time in the next few days to get to the sewing machine to add some stitch.
And for those interested...puppy update...

This weekend Yoshi and I babysat Gracie for another foster family. While she was staying with us, we participated in two more Santa Claus parades, one Saturday afternoon, and the other on Sunday evening.
Fortunately the parade in the afternoon and a long evening walk tired the girls out enough to give me some studio time Saturday night.

It sure is fun having a puppy friend for a sleep over! Yoshi and Gracie had some wonderful 'bitey face' sessions and really enjoyed running around the yard together.
