  • Being Brave!

    I have managed to get behind with virtually all my self-imposed deadlines at the moment, so I have decided to be very brave, not to even try playing catch up, but just to do the things I feel drawn to! So… today I finished last Friday’s assignment from Carolyn Dube’s Use Your Words workshop. This is such a cool workshop!

    Letter Background Sheet

    The first part of the assignment was to create a background sheet for cutting up. I used homemade letter stencils, white gesso, an Artist Cellar letter stencil, and gel medium. After I scanned it, I cut it up into five pieces.

    Be Brave!

    The second part was to create a journal page incorporating a collage made using a piece cut from the background sheet. My collage is made up of a hand cut tag painted with acrylic paint, the piece of background sheet, two scraps of material, some paper lace painted with acrylic paint, and a bird cut from foam and coloured using acrylic paint. The words were added using a uniball eye pen – which is supposed to be waterproof – but as you can plainly see, didn’t survive the background sprays without joining in the colour runs! (the sprays were ink and twinkling H2O’s). But I wasn’t too upset as I think the runs just add to the feeling of movement on the right hand page. What do you think?
