Serenity

SerenityLayers!  Layers!  This page was fun to put together.  I used inspiration for the background from one of Kelly’s pages.  I love the torn look and the contrast with the calmness of the woman’s face.

I put down the shiny blue background paper first and then layered the flowers on top of that on the left and across the top.  Then I glued down the image of the resting woman and added flowers at her head and neck.  I watercolored her lips pink and added pink and yellow to the paper flowers which were originally white.  Once everything was dry, I added a piece of plastic – a repurposed sheet protector across the entire image and then stamped the swirls with StazOn.  I stamped “serenity” as well with the black permanent ink.  Lastly, I journaled.

This page speaks to all the changes that are happening around me and my desire to remain calm and centered through the whole process.

    Really like all of your art . I’ve been following it for awhile. I finally decided to start “Facebooking” and I tried to send a friend request but I don’t know what I’m doing, haha. Have you thought about teaching your art techniques?

      Thanks for your feedback. I have considered teaching as I really enjoy teaching others. I have taught quilting in my past. I am still really new in the mixed media world, and it takes time cultivating the relationships needed to break into this area as an instructor. I see this blog as one of the ways to do just that.
