I'm nearly there! 5 more to go!
It's been quite the journey in a sense. Time to play with new materials and time to play with some old friends who I really haven't seen in awhile. Discovering patterns as I go...flowers and dreams, and wondering what my muse is trying to get me to realize.
I love the colors on this one! I'd rather the bird be a little bit more "realistic" but I'm trying to work with what I have, and this little guy came to me in a swap.
I sort of like this one, but it's just a bit too chaotic...or maybe the fish doesn't pop quite like I'd like him to. But, again, I'm working with what I have and I was trying to stay away from flowers!
Both have lots of layers of text and paint, along with stencils and/or rub ons. Both gave me pleasure to create, as did the journal page below:
This one has sooooooooooo many layers. As I worked on other things, I kept using up my extra paint here. I scraped, stenciled, and smushed it on. (How about that last technical term?) I also forgot to let it dry, turned the page, and smooshed it...versus smushing it. Smushing is a deliberate action while smooshing occurs when you forget to pay attention. Both add character to the page, and you just need to learn to live with the second.
Hope you had a lovely weekend! We did...farmers' market, Wine in the Woods, and napping while it rained.
