Scrapping the Music. The featured song this week was "Sparkle," by Rubyhorse. This song has beautiful lyrics and the verse I quoted reminded me of an angel in the sky. Someone I know recently experienced the untimely and unexpected passing of someone very close to him. I thought that the lyrics of this song would give him comfort.
I started this with gesso stamped with a paisley stamp to give it texture. Then I wiped blue and white paint on top with a credit card, which creates a great scratchy field over the gesso texture. I added a tree stencil on the top and on the bottom, and also used Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's Blazonry stencil on the bottom for more trees. I used some star and leaf stamps as well, and a mix of my handwriting and various stamps for the letters. The woman is collaged and painted with acrylics and Sakura pens. Overall, I'm very happy with how this turned out!
