TIME TO CATCH WISHES, HOPES & DREAMS
|"Time to Catch Wishes, Hopes and Dreams"|
Mixed Media on 12" x 18" Masonite Board
I used everything I could find on this piece as kind of a mad scientist experimenting with everything in the lab. I used acrylic, Copic markers, colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, ink, white ink, lots of collaged papers, stamps and metallic paints. I'm sure I'm leaving something out. My goal was to enjoy the process and be as playful as I wanted.
I knew I wanted the piece to be about catching positive words and that I wanted to feature two female characters.
|Collaged dictionary, wallpaper and Scrapbook Papers|
|Watered down acrylic Wash|
|Sepia Copic markers outlines of my characters|
|Collage and colored pencil under layers|
|Stamps alphabet letters float above the characters|
It's so much fun to depart from my usual style and techniques and just play in my studio. I have so many wonderful supplies and I wish I had more time to enjoy them all. I learned lots of things while playing around and hope to incorporate my discoveries into other work.
