Last night I was off early YES a wholesale miracle! I went to FLAX. Artist Heaven! They sell huge sheets of paper from Italy. As well as everything else under the sun. In my mind I have a vision of a piece of Art from the hand prints I made of my artist friend Jeff. He is a musician. He was looking at my art journal. He saw the pictures of my hands. So I traced his very talented hands. He is a Guitar Player, Teacher & Lead vocalist in a band.
So my mind has been whirling with ideas for these very talented hands….
I was at Flax I saw some paper that was music notes and really cool writing on it. I bought it. I had a mapof the world which I am using as well as some Making Memories Rivets. I traced his hands with tracing paper then cut them out of musical paper, I washed them with a coffee stain. ( It’s a bean thing) I can’t explain it. Then I took a large sheet of thickest Watercolor paper a blue Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Pad I used Broken china and Weathered Wood. I washed like doing dishes with a little water, kitchen sponge and my ink pad this large sheet of paper. It looks like a cool sky effect I think I like it. I have temporarily placed the cut out hands & world on my page… Here is the beginning, First Layout of “These Talented Hands” I am awaiting lyrics from Jeff to add to the project.
I have been inspired by some collage art in the hallway at the Showcase House. As well as the courage to live by your gift with grace & gratitude.
Here is a little peek ….
