Long time no post … i know, i know…
2011 brings new intentions which amongst them is CREATE MORE (or rather again).
I’m pushing myself to try wall pieces this year. While i love working in art journals and other smaller layouts I can put in scrapbook binders, i want to branch out and try something different and something i can, well, appreciate in a different way…
The center quote is from Howard Finster, a folk artist, who’s work I recently saw as part of an exhibit at the Atlanta High Museum of Art. I took a photo of this wall plaque he created (so any misspellings are not on me 🙂 ). Although most of his work is a little on the religious side for me, being a fond admirer of found objects in art, I latched onto this quote.
The quote is surrounded by found objects from my own drawers as well as pieces from various Gauche Alchemy mixed media kits. The base is a 5″x7″ piece of thick chipboard. I spray painted most of the elements in blue and used Golden Extra Heavy Gel/Molding Paste mixed with blue acrylic paint as the adhesive.
Anyways… good way of using up some of those bits and pieces!
What do you have in your collection?
