What does that even mean? Is it a word or did I make it up? (You decide!!) I missed joining in with The Three Muses last week – my ‘pockets’ were empty of energy and I was starting a head cold…. bleh!
This week, Taluula challenged us to use “windows” in our artwork, so I altered a page in my old Altered Discovery Book, using a few of the techniques I’m learning in the Supernova Class – Part 2. And yes, I am still making books and also being fairly gruesome with Halloween not far away… I’ll show you my “Vile Vials” pendants when I can get a decent photo of them!
I had the phrase “The eyes are the windows of/to your soul…” going round in my head when I sat down to paint, so that’s what it became:
The birds and the flower-thingy at the bottom are masks/stencils I cut, whilst I was experimenting yesterday. I used a white Posca pen and black Faber Castell Pitt pens for the journalling, as both write beautifully over acrylic paint. Nice!!
The chandelier is from the Gothic Plate by Home Impressions and the eyes are from the small face by Third Coast RS. There’s a touch of the perfect pearls in a few places over some stamped latin text, but it didn’t show up on the scan… ah well, there’s plenty to see without that, isn’t there?
I am so preoccupied right now as I’ve opened my own Studio on ArtFire.com (see the badge in my sidebar) – superb platform – but listing everything I have for sale is going to take a long time. I’m sure I’m doing the right thing though, because it’s something I’ve wanted to do for ages!
I’m also making samples for both Design Teams and some really weird stuff for the Gallery… and taking Julie’s amazing Supernova Art Journalling Class. If you fancy joining in, there’s plenty of room and no time limit as far as I know – we’ve got videos going right through October too. I can only recommend it to anyone who’s always wanted to try art journalling; I’m learning so much and I absolutely love it!
Besides, you “meet” such lovely people… 😉
