As mentioned in a previous post I am "special deputy" for the month of August over at Color Story Inspiration (CSI). I used a photo my darling man took of me doing what I love to do. The photo is two years old and was taken while we were on holiday in Plettenberg Bay.
Here is the case file:
The Scheme: All the colours were used.
Evidence: text print, floral pattern, suspended something (dragonfly); butterflies, lace (paper), wet medium.
Testimony: I used the title "Solitude" and a quote by Harold Bloom - "Reading well is one of the great pleasures that solitude can afford you." On the back my journaling is as follows: "I found very early in my life that reading can be an escape and that it transported you to another world. I grew up in less than idyllic circumstances and was one of six children. There was a lot of noise and a lot of stress...when things became too hectic and stressful, I would simply open a book and escape. I was in primary school when I started volunteering at our local library. It was the way that I ensured that I was the first one to lay my hands on all the new books. Today I still find that it is the best way to simply switch off and block out the noise."
Some close ups:
I used a Crafters Workshop (Tiny circles) stencil and mixed the texture paste with blue and pink acrylic paint.
A little cluster of die cut doily, brads flowers, butterflies etc. Something suspended (the dragonfly) I painted the Blue Fern Studio birdcage with gold acrylic paint.
This is the last piece of this lovely lacy Basic Grey paper.
Thank you for visiting and leaving love...I will be around soon.
