3 words close to my heart during any school break, as they totally describe the world around me...but wouldn't life be boring without them :D
As I said in my last post , sorry for not being around much lately, but I have been arting...so I thought I'd do a quick catch up(still not sure if there is other stuff I haven't blogged yet :/ )
My bosom buddy asked if I could help a bit with a local theatre group a couple of weeks ago, painting scenery and stuff...they rent backdrops, but wanted a few bit's and pieces for extra decor.
This is "The Duchess" 20x 30 on hardboard(I know it looks a bit stark, but it is a cameo appearance piece and has to be seen in the back rows)
Family coat of arms + motto x 2 . Cut from thick grey board 20x20 ish (instructions...paint what you think best!!! So being wary of copyright I just made one up, though the motto is specific to the play)
while waiting for paint to dry (as you do) I decided to print off some of my own art as little business cards...but the printer didn't want too...so I painted straight onto the die cut cards instead...
cut some tiny make-up sponges to make little stamps...
popped the cards out when dry...
doodled around stamped images...
used white Poska paint pen to add a little more detail and finished with a layer of iridescent acrylic :D
(already lost them amongst the chaos which is my craft room at the moment)
so I made some postcard ones too :D
And finally for now, the painting which I actually "sold" last week to a lovely lady who has ordered a larger piece (get me!...)
"Petals at Dawn"
named from a song lyric by Lorreena McKinnet "Prayers rose, softly, petals at dawn..."
As it is Tuesday already!!! I should be entering one of these for Rita's "A Piece a Week" challenge, and as she was the latest to be worked on I will choose "The Duchess" :D
Happy Holidays(again) :D XXX
