Let Your Talent Shine
The Documented Life Project 2015 is continuing with it's August theme of: Faces, the Human Form and Characters. The art challenge this week is Layered, and the journalling prompt: Speak to your younger self. What advice would you offer. Not an easy one. There would be so many things I would have liked to be able to tell her, most of which I'm keeping to myself. And in a way I'm also quite pleased because I have managed to learn quite a lot of those lessons in the intervening years. This one of Let Your Talent Shine remains difficult. Maybe putting it down on paper in my Dylusions journal will help.
Layering on the other hand is oh so easy for me and I need no encouragement to go to town. I started with gesso, added paints with a stencil (S309 Juxtapose from Stencilgirl). I also used their Wall of Words stencil with white and turquoise acrylic spray paint. I added texture with a rubber stamp designed by France Papillon for Stampotique. I collaged with papers and paper napkins, dribbled ink down the pages, and I added postage stamps, so layers galore.
