A nature layout . ….. title “Delicate “
Cool greens and blue and white: all created with inks and gesso .
I love working with mixed media and I begin by creating my background first.
I like to use a watercolour technique by applying light layers and keep layering until I am happy with the result .
I aged The chipboard door with ink, paint and crackle .
I added leafy foliage with text paper and randomly stamped over the background to add texture and interest. The door in my layout to me mirrors the wisdom which comes with age and experience .
I love to weave my emotions into my works, creating both depth and mystery .
Each piece I create is a part of me and my life, and I like to tell a story through the colors and textures. I often journal on my pages and other times on the back of my work .
History is often lost in families and I feel that by journaling emotions, feelings, and stories keeps the past alive for future generations.
I STUMBLED ACROSS THIS DELIGHTFUL POEM .
While working in my garden I have music all around me .
I affirm to myself,
“I Climb to the top of the mountain,
Look around, see the perfect balance
of masculine and feminine energy.
I allow that balance to come alive in my body
And breathe in the magic of life.
People come and go leaving us gifts.
These gifts are the elements of growth – new beginnings.
Each person is like a doorway to open and explore
as I choose my path on life’s journey .”
