Thanks to Kristen from Twinkle Twinkle I am inspired with a creative spark to make art, jewelry and whatever comes to mind, in color. She is hosting "Summer of Color Artists Choice 2013" every week she has a poll on color combos and we all vote then make something creative with the colors. This is the first week.
The colors are-
Citron Green & Turquoise.
I decided to make an art piece.
I started with a gelli print I had made last month in my shop. It had some of the colors as you can see.
I added this Dylusions spray in citron green and used this beautiful Lumiere sparkly dark turquoise.
Shelf liner from the kitchen is great for texture.
I also used a circle punchinella with the spray.
I got paint all over my fingers looks like mermaid skin.
I used these supplies. I love the Lumiere metallic to make a turquoise to paint this paper for the blind it has such neat texture bumps.
I cut this paper up into circles and funny swirly shapes.
This was my watercolor paper I used underneath the others to avoid paint on my desk. It turned out neat so I used it as the background paper.
I then glued all the shapes down. I drew a woman and flowers on the circles as well as a bird wheel, waves, and a little boarder.
I randomly drew some cards from my Wayne Dyer inner wisdom deck and these lovely sayings came to me. I have had some things in my life that appeared to be problems but I realized they were my negative thoughts. These quotes really drove it home to me. Above her head it says-
" I work on my problems, and release them."
In the swirl it says-
"Anything that bothers you is only a problem within only you can experience it and only you can correct it."
I had more words but I wasn't sure where to put them so I laid them down all over the place trying to find the right composition.
They landed on the gelli print-
" I trust the perfection of the universe."
Send out love and harmony, put your mind and body in a peaceful place, and then allow the universe to work in the perfect way it knows how."
Finally it came together I outlined the words and added the word TRUST to the bottom as a reminder that whatever is happening in my life I can trust it has a lesson and meaning. My thoughts about it might not be true and so I should question those and try to stay positive. Art does heal! :)
This is so fun I can't wait to see what next weeks color is, my guess is it might be watermelon and tangerine? These sound like wonderful colors.
Have a great day!
I love your comments :) thanks for leaving them!
