Week 12 Art Challenge: As a Focal Point
Journal Prompt: Coming into Focus
|(Life is so much brighter when we focus on what truly matters)|
These pages took me a long time to finish.
I really wan't happy with them but kinda turned
them round - until I did the wording and ugh, I'm not too
keen on that, but you know what? Enough is enough.
I collaged magazine photos of a model and
the hands/nest (which originally contained eggs),
and I then over painted, replacing the eggs with my heart.
The background is gesso into which, while it was still
wet, I pressed an indian wooden stamp.
This was then painted with water soluble wax
crayons, stencilled and framed with a stamp in
acrylic paint, highlighted with gold pen.
As for the wording, at least I like the
sentiment if not the execution.
Surely the giving and receiving of love
is what truly matters?
Thanks for looking!
