This post is to highlight my recent installment in a round robin for my Kindred Souls art group. This book belongs to Eileen, she has a wonderful blog. The theme of her book is faces, and I have to admit, I was stuck. I don't typically include a lot of people or faces in my work. I really don't know why, but it has been a stumbling point in the past as well.
This sat on my art table for a while, as I slowly built up my page. Finally today, inspiration struck and I was able to complete it. I found the central image in a drawer of paper scraps. A stamp that was dipped in UTEE long ago was added along with lots of layers of text and a Dresden border. I have had a piece of resin paper I keep tearing off of, and I have been pleased to have this lying around.
I could not help adding some junk. I would have kept building on this charm, but I did not want to add too much weight...I think I already may have though!!!
I had intended to add this face image, on the front of the page, but it just did not happen at the time. I am pleased with the results on the back though, even if the subject matter is a bit mashed up and quirky.
Hopefully Eileen will like my contribution! I look forward to sharing the next installment as well as my finished book someday.
