In the Phantom Tollbooth (one of my favorite books), Milo meets Alec Bing -- a boy his age, who was born with his head at the height it will be when he's an adult. He grows down, not up.
Because of the way he grows, Alec has a very specific point of view. He thinks it must be very confusing to live in Milo's world; Since Milo is growing from the ground up, his point of view keeps changing.
I'm so grateful for the ability to look at things from a fresh perspective. In fact, when I am irritated by someone or troubled by a situation, the first thing I try to do is shift my point of view. If you change your perspective, you can change your experience of the world.
As one of my teachers once said, "the best way to get rid of an irritating person in your life is to stop being irritated. Be compassionate instead."
This mini-canvas was made using lots of techniques for texture -- molding and fiber paste, glass bead gel, embossing powder, gesso, gel medium .... Here's a fast forward of how I created it. I hope you enjoy it!
Linking to the wonderful blog hops at Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Everyday, as well as the challenges at City Crafter (color palette - peach and rose), Eclectic Paperie (use gel medium), and Our Creative Corner (anything goes)
