I piled on some more color with Faber Castell gelatos, figuring out just how far I could push them.
The butterfly came courtesy of a fingerpainting session with Dom, as did the circles floating on the page.
I stamped the flowers and happily colored away with various pens in my stash, piled on some more gelatos, and blended it all in.
More stamping - words this time, liking the look of the differently sized letters.
And, in case you're wondering about those snakes...I had a bizarre but vivid dream about a snake in my father's back room this summer. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out the snake bit, especially since I barely tolerate the creatures, and this snake sported a very grumpy and very human face.
Curiousity got to me, so I googled the meaning of snakes in dreams, and honestly, that snake was an excellent fit. Turns out he symbolizes transformation, particularly a change that you don't want to be making. I had the dream shortly after we sold my dad's home.
Yeah, it fit, but butterflies also symbolize transformation, and if it's all the same to you, I'd rather have butterflies in my dreams than grumpy old snakes.
