In their bird house--these are the three elements that I like to use the most in my art (aside from my new obsession with faces), houses, hearts, and birds--so I loved this week's challenge. To start out with, I used this old cupboard door I had that had a glass insert--
I then collaged text from my favorite over-sized children's book that I have and scrapbook papers--
And then for the bird house I used my scrapbook papers again--
I love making pictures with papers--kind of like putting a puzzle together. It's very relaxing for me.
I also wanted to show you a WIP. Tara doesn't like using that word, but I kind of do, although I've never used it before. Remember my journal pages from last week?
Well, I started it--I know, I know, I'm a slow-poke, but I started it--
And I know, it's another face--I can't get away from them. One of the ladies from my Suzi class, Kristen had posted some of her faces with text on them, and I loved the way that they turned out, so thanks to her, this is what I decided to do. I keep adding layers to her face, and when I want to preserve what I've done, I just add clear gesso to her, and then I can add more layers. She kind of looks sad or mad--either way--it's probably because I WON'T LEAVE HER ALONE!! So I'll leave her be for a while and continue on with these pages. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, but I'll let her tell me.
