Ugh, so sorry. MIA for too long. Things are good though, super busy but good. The last few weeks have just flown by. Been working way over my pay grade lately :) At home and at work...he he. A quick update on my latest project though, and the rest of my life-as-we-know-it update to follow shortly.
This is for my DT project, a mixed media on canvas. I used a transparency for the picture, drew outlines on the canvas where it would be before placing it. i thought it looked less like a photo and more like a transfer. Then I painted it with acrylic paint, took a page from one of my favorite essays in "Riverteeth" by David James Duncan and highlighted random words, phrases etc that spoke to me. I outlined them in pencil, dry brushed white paint over the text around it and taped it with masking tape. I used scrap pieces of paper for the rain and clouds and magazine cut outs for some of the words and phrases. I also used Hambly rub ons and making memories font rub ons. I wanted to make a piece that reflected letting go and recovery. I made this as a dedication to one of my best friends who has been very sick for the past few years. She is a big Beatles fan. I miss her lots, and of course wish I could be closer to her while she's recovering.
