I'm Cait Sherwood, a mixed-media painter who works into art journals.

I make art from the trash of the art I made before.

Now I'm just a few days away from the end of my month-long journaling commitment.  I am pretty sure I am going to continue this daily practice.

This spread is made of a transparency I made to make a silkscreen from.  I was planning to make this wiggly pattern into a wrapping paper this past holiday season, but I didn't.  But I had fun using matte medium to brush these see-through vellum layers into my journal.  Brushing with matte medium is like gluing something down.  (I am a screen printer.)

Oh, and with a similar color palette, here is a collage of patterns with a xeroxed photo of Lee Miller.  I made all the patterns pictured, using ink and then digitally manipulating the drawings in Illustrator, & then printing them out onto vellum.  

All were attempts to make gift wrap patterns.  Some make the cut.  You can see at the top of this next page, a spotted orange and yellow pattern--I screen printed that.  It's a gift wrap scrap.  Also, the golden hands on black paper in the center, the pink spotted pattern on black, and the eyeball patterns are screen printed designs.
