Spring Shoes by Jen

Shoes - 7

Hi Artsy friends!  Jen here with another of my shoe creations!  I love altering shoes to wear with my basic outfits.  I always feel great wearing something that I created and something that is one of a kind. These shoes were purchased a local large store and were canvas.  Perfect for altering with Gelatos® colors!  I used Margarita Mix, Metallic Mint, Snow Cone, Lemon, Mango, and Passion Fruit for these shoes.

Art Journal Page by Jen Matott

Artpage - 5

I have been working in an art journal lately with other art teachers.  We trade journals every month and create a page that explores techniques, images, ideas and lessons that we are inspired by for our students.  Our hope was that we might have a collection of professional art, ideas and lessons in which to share at the end of the year.   So, for this page, I was exploring some pen drawing and areas of color using Gelatos® watered down as well as splattered on.   As an Art educator and artist, I like working out ideas in a journal so that I can possibly use them on a full sized canvas or paper.

When I got these products, I immediately thought of Frida Kahlo with that image on the stamp.  Frida was an amazing female Mexican artist in the 1940's-1950's.  She used her heart and soul in every artwork she created and you can see the story of her life in her work!  She went through so many tragic and painful experiences but didn't let that affect her ability to make art.  In fact, it was therapy for her!

New Sneaks by Jen Matott

SneaksJenMatott - 8

Jen Matott here to share a pair that I jazzed up just for the new year!  I got a pair of these canvas knock offs at chain store and knew they would be the perfect canvas for some color!  I wanted to create a unique, one of a kind shoe to kick off my back to school (after the break) look! I was inspired by the hexagons from theMixed Media Stencils 101 Collection set and these warm colors.
