My entry in Wendy's "WORD" Journal
I really had trouble deciding on a word so I just started by adding torn pieces of napkin to the page after doing a layer of gesso. I also had some scrap paper in there. Next I painted over everything with some pinkish paint and then added some gold on top of that.I used my fingers to add some texture with the gold paint. STILL NO WORD!!
Next I added the Buddha which came from a napkin and then the bird from another napkin. I did some outlining with a black pen. STILL NO WORD!! I added some stamping just to break up the gold. I had to add a flower beside the Buddha as there was a gap so I decided to add more flowers...they are all handmade by me. FINALLY DECIDED ON THE WORD and had "fun" getting it on the page. I then added the butterfly in the top corner and it is a butterfly that came all the way from Greece....TY Eleni!! The little butterflies are wooden and I coloured them with gel pens. Lastly I added the fibres around the outside.
Hope you like it Wendy.
