Two weeks have flown by and it is time for another Artsy Fartsy Friendly Challenge with my friend Carolyn Dube. I seriously was doubting if I was going to get this one done. I have been working non-stop on a big project but decided that heck, I'm taking a break for ONE hour to do this. And that I did. I set my timer for one hour and had a fantastic time.
Gelli Plate from Gelli Arts (just because Carolyn and I can't stop using it)
A Die Cut Piece
I started with a print I made on my Gelli Plate--I wish the photo showed the detail more, it turned out just beautiful and shimmery:
Then a die cut or two....not a problem...they are thrown all over my house right now from the project I'm working on:
Looks like those diecuts are totally wrong....but I had a plan I added a few different water soluble pencils to try to "ground" the diecuts :
Then my last item to use...oil pastels. Not something I use that often unless they are the soluble kind. I colored all around the outside of my design with purple and blue oil pastels and used a stylus to scribble.
The words I added were a thought that has been going on in my head for awhile from a conversation we had at Brave Girl Camp. I think my heart diecut worked perfect for this thought. I will say that I could have went on and on with this piece. Adding more layers and depth, but unfortunately my one hour timer went off and it was back to work.
I wonder what Carolyn did....
