Where & when
Light will guide me home
Another fabulous day filled with sunshine, good food, and lots of time to play in the studio. I decided to play along with http://wordspaintery.blogspot.se/ and used their prompts - colors of pale pink, pale blue, and pale aqua, and the thought "Light will guide my way home" (I changed it a little as I ran out of alphas.) I began with a recycled linen book cover for a canvas and applied lots of white gesso and then used stamps, bubble wrap, and a doily to add texture. Then after it dried, I painted with pale pink, blue, and aqua Claudine Hellmuth acrylic paints and dabbed here and there with a paper towel. I used a rub on and a transparency along with sequin waste,some papers, and a photo of the compass rose on our front porch; and then layered on a die cut (painted with black acrylic paint), the broken watch, the pink metal flower, and some random alphas (they do have meaning for me) with a glass bird, a butterfly, and of course, a candle for some "light". I altered a little canvas with paper and inking, and added a velvet leaf (originally white but painted pink), an old stamp, an old Prima velvet die cut, and some glimmer misted and stiffened lace. Finally I added the words.
Be sure to check out the wordspaintery blog if you like mixed media - they have some super artists there, and I would love to be a part of their Design Team so this blogpost is my DT submission. I have been fortunate to have a member of several design teams in the past and found the experiences so rewarding and truly inspiring in many ways. ttfn
