These are all the things I wish for you:
This is the first spread in my altered board book for Week 2 of the AHH course with Tam (Willowing). The photos (image transfers and an old pic from 1921), represent young Rosie and the childhood I wish she had had…
That’s the left-hand page… and this is the right-hand page:
The reality wasn’t at all like this, but then, that’s the point of Art, Heart & Healing – dealing with my demons through art. Watching Tam’s videos and joyful art-making is therapeutic in itself and I have discovered that I can draw – a bit! The next phase is drawing “Whimsies” and creating a spread with them… says she who has never drawn one in her life!
I must admit that although I am not a sweet, traditional, neat creature when it comes to art, because of the grungey backgrounds and mixed media setting for these dolls and portraits, I am finding it easier to embrace the whole concept of whimsy. I hope that makes sense?
Anyway, this is also my entry to Theme Thursday – Blue – this week. Have a great weekend – me? Oh I am working again (and grateful!) 🙂
