OK, Kerfe, you inspired me lady! If you haven’t seen Kerfe’s post from the weekend, here is a live link. It wowed me so much, I decided to take a card from Kerfe & Nina’s deck and riff off of one of their creations (they run their blog as a team, and inspire each other’s artwork).
Not sure if you remember my mixed media painting from last week, which was created with Neocolor II crayons, colored pencil, Inktense blocks, and gelly pen. I liked the colors, but felt it needed something. I added a few things…..and was ready to abandon it. Until I saw Kerfe’s post…..and cut it up, instead!
Wow, what a change. I could have sat there for hours staring at the colors and shapes, cutting, trimming and rearranging. It was wonderful, like quilting, minus the frustration of sewing! Thank you, Kerfe! I’ve not glued it down yet, only the borders, and the photo is a little over-exposed and wonky…..but you get the idea. If I could blink three times and turn this into a quilt, I would! I know what to do with my art fails from now on!
I hope you all enjoy this little creation. I may try this mixed media thing for awhile on Mondays and see how it flies. Happy February! Spring is just around the corner! Peace.
