This is a cover for a Blessing Book . It's used to write a prayer, a blessing or words of wisdom for the bride to be. Whatever you want actually. This one is for a friend of my daughter who is getting married soon.
As you can see VEGETABLES were the subject. In these challenges I had the desire to try to stretch myself with medium or technique. The background was done with a lot of Frisket, like a cake. Some frisket some paint, more frisket and color and so on. the idea was to cover some area at the time .Then it is all removed. If any one has ever done batik this is the same thing.
Well she's back from Thailand but this is how I see her most of the time. I guess after 48 hours of continuous travel this is what you do. There's stories and pictures but I guess I'll have to wait. =)
I started to play with some paints the other day and this is what was done. But as I was painting I was thinking of a sort of flag because I painted it on it's side. I changed my mind and will look at it in a vertical fashion from now on, I like it better that way.
I received many definition on the meaning of it that blessed me so, thank you.
This is another one I finished later from that same workshop. Here I applied crackle paint then added 3 different washes over it and wipe it so that the colors would be mostly in the grooves of the crackle than I added the transfers and a little more paint.
I took a workshop last week when I did not have my camera to post what I was doing . Well here is one of the results.
It was lot's of fun and very interesting new product from Golden Acrylic Paint.
Anyway this piece is done on a white piece of cardboard, then an splash of molding paint over that which I painted the Yellow. I then added some washed of blue in some areas and a little more yellow wash this time and added 3 different transfers. When that was finished I added more paint to the flower and bud. The cardboard started to peel in some areas but I did not mind that.
I purposefully did this more like a faux because I wanted that age look.
I don't know if you remember but when I visited my brother in Colorado my daughter lost my camera and her ipod was stolen =( bad time for electronics). But my brother gave me an extra camera he had, Yippe ! 2 weeks ago Tiffany left for Thailand ( see previous post) and I gave her my camera hence no real posting of new items.
Well the others day I received a package from the friend she had visited who found the camera right in time for the deadline of DSFDF. =)
So here is the Pennsylvania Landscape challenge just in time !
