Feelin’ hot, hot, hot!!

When I was going to dance classes some years ago, we used to dance freestyle Salsa to this great number… and once you start, you can’t stop!! So the Three Muses challenge this week is to use HOT as your theme. I found myself thinking random, disconnected thoughts and then paralleling them in my head with colour and words as I created the background with yellow and orange paint.

In the spirit of using up scraps from my desk and unfinished projects too, I connected the Take a Word (Romance) with these joined up puzzle pieces and they also, being a little racy (hot?), fit the 3M theme… Prompted by Tammy’s (Daisy Yellow in my head) “measure” prompt, I used the quirky eraser stamp I carved on Sunday night along the bottom of the page…

How cool is that? How hot is this? Measure it!

Funny how your mind works, isn’t it?  The bitty specks of black on the page are embossing powder, with which I have been really childish today! I have been reinventing a large canvas*** I wasn’t happy with and I ended up really playing this morning – splattering paint on it and then throwing embossing powder into the paint. Honestly! So I had to see what happened to the fabric flower when I heated it too, didn’t I?  Fine until you overheat it – see page for details… *giggles*

***I am renaming it “Reckless abandon”… Watch this space for photos later this week!!!

Oh and here’s a fun video of that catchy tune…

  7. I picture you at your desk somewhat like the mad scientist, Rosie, mixing potions and adding a little of this and a little of that until the whole thing is smokin’ !!! Love it.

    • That’s probably so close to the truth Bev!! I can look totally mad and so much of my art is experimental (or just a bit mental when I let go with a big canvas and a pot of embossing powder – lol!)

  12. I am imagining you dancing around the house now, paint brush in hand and flicking embossing powder about with wild abandon!

    Nice piece – especially the description of making it!!

    • Luckily, I did use a few sheets of old newsprint behind the canvas, but I still had to wipe a couple of splats off the wall! I need a shed or somewhere like that to “work” in… Lol!

      I am very parallel-thinking when I create – was creating the cool blue ATC at the same time. Imagine that!!

      I still have ep all over the place and I’d just better not drop the heat gun… 😉

    Well, Miss Judy, you have outdone yourself this time. If this is what happens when gay abandon takes over, pass me the embossing powder is what I say. Bravo.

  18. Rosie, this is sensational! No other word for it! Not only have you given us an amazing artpiece but music to go along with it. I remember that song and, of course, it is now going around in my head and will probably keep me awake this very hot night in Perth, Western Australia. What a luverly, joyful person you are!
