Something of a momentous day yesterday, after 20 years, well 20 years and 2.5 months not that I was counting, my Son got in touch. No we haven't spoken yet and yes I'm pleased but this will be a personal thing and the real meaning is that we are back in each others lives but no bells and whistles just grateful acceptance. Not that my head isn't in a whirl, it is.
So after completing the Saturday list and needing to be inky and messy the beads were set aside and other toys came out. Anyway with another saga this week and my current lack of verifocals anything that requires good and adaptive eyesight is out.
Less is more - Home (one layer)
Speedy Fox and Friends - Use just the corner
Open Minded Crafting - Doodle
Does this seem a little tame for someone whose mind is all over the place? Well having got my hand in with the postcard grabbing a canvas and letting rip.
A grid laid out on the canvas each portion coloured with ProMarkers Red, Blue, Green and Gold with just one purple section. Red and Cream acrylic pain squeezed onto the canvas and spread with a palette knife some bronze paint added to the mix. Blue and Green squeezed onto the sides and spread with more bronze for good measure. The whole set aside to dry, Acrylic is a fast drying paint but when it is thick like this it takes longer, quite a lot longer. When the thin/single layers were dry two postcard size and another card from the calendar set were pressed into the paint and lifted off. Then everything left overnight. This morning black marker has been used to emphasise the fish found floating inside.
These are the negative impressions, not sure where they are going yet but I'm seeing flowing earth.
Gosh I wonder what today will bring - exciting.
