Using Words

That’s this week’s challenge from TGIF – and Glenda has created a really inspirational Layout as guest host. I’m sharing another Layer painting project with you, inspired in part by Ria’s Toadstools stamp sheet and an idea I had of fairies emerging from a forest and dancing round in swirling circles. They’re there, but not quite… you can see them but only if you believe? The “How I wish” was added because I too, would love to be able to fly in circles, in and out of the light, play tag all day in the forest – wouldn’t you?


Here’s a closer look at the deatils. The tiny dots you can see are transparent microbeads which shimmer when the light hits them!


I even put drip lines in!! The surface is an old wooden bread/pizza board, about 9″ or 10″ in diameter. Painting on wood is just as challenging as painting on canvas, but it’s something I seem to have quite a lot of, so I get to practise for very little outlay… such a bonus!


I am so glad I took the Layer Love class and I’m definitely signing up for Julie’s September Journalling class. I think there will be quite a few handmade journals among my Christmas presents this year! 😉
