Sometimes people say the strangest things...

This weeks challenge at Inspiration Avenue is WORDS, which was the perfect prompt for me to make a little silliness for my "Piece a Week"
This is a 6 x 4 watercolour board mixed "medium" (couldn't resist that pun) piece, the theme of which was brought about by an argument with my stroppy sister last week...
It was the same day I found out I had won a prize from PaperArtsy, I got to choose a stamp set....and this just said it all lol
ID-10 EZmounted form their Vintage collection.

Started by getting messy with gesso and string...
 (seriously recommend opening hand wipes "before" you start)
 While that was drying I stamped some of the words and images onto tissue paper for a later layer...
 added paint randomly with scrunched up paper...

 then knocked back with a thin layer of white.
 Now time to play...
adding layers of paint , tissue paper and gel pen journalling.

Part of the rant my sister had at me included the line "...why don't you ask Dad (he is dead), after all, you are the one with the hotline to the undead!"
I know...the most infuriating part was not being able to reply as she cut me off, or I would have pointed out that "undead" would be "alive". But hey ho..nothing new in her behaviour, though it did remind me of a seance where the medium actually said "Is there anybody there?...Knock once for YES and twice for NO"...was very hard not to giggle :D 
Enjoy :D XXXX

  9. I always enjoy seeing the process of your art. :) And i totally adore that quote. Hope you and your sister made up. :)

  10. Well, I think the quote and the glorious colors of this inner-voices-rich lady are answer enough for Sister Dear. Sometimes you just have to let them scream and paint on ;-)

  11. Very interesting way to draw in a discussion, I like the colors!
