Feelin' Groovy

The Diva's challenge this week is to use Eden Hunt's tangle "Groovy." I decided to use the word "Groovy" for the theme as well as the tangle, inspired by Simon & Garfunkle's great song, and also by the fact that I got a thumbs up from my gastro doc after a colonoscopy follow up today! 

After color washing the background with blue and purple paint, I used Julie Fei Fan Balzer's Blazonry stencil with Gesso to create some "surfboards."  I then used the Blazonry stencil as a mask to over-stencil some circles, flowers, and patterns on the surfboard shapes, which I then hand-painted and doodled as well.  I used the "Groovy" tangle to create "waves" at the bottom.  I had fun hand lettering the words "Feelin' Groovy" and then filling the letters in with different patterns using Sakura pens.  As always, these challenges definitely jump start my creativity.  Thanks Diva! 

Enjoy the song.
