a page a day 7 & 8

I love circles ... and rings .... the simplicity, the organic shape, the completeness and wholeness ...

Day 7
 The 7th was a saturday and although i had time to play ... i just was not in a real creative way ... i loved the technique i used on the flowers, which was basically finger painting with two colours ... i just did not like the dried paint.  It just dried a lot darker that i thought it would ... i does have some glimmer painted onto the the upper left side of each flower, but i cant get it to show up on a photo ... failure??? no, I am learning and trying something everyday ... i am not an artist but i like to play at being one, and i consider this all personal growth ... even if it is simple finger painting and fanciful thoughts ...

Day 8  okay, ask anyone who knows me very well, and they will tell you that i absolutely adore Jane Austen, and I am a rabid Alice fan ... I dedicate this page to Alice ... in all her glory!
 The background is distress stain and paint.  I used a prima doily stencil with white paint for a touch of girly ... the flowers are made from various gelli prints i have made, and the eyes were not hand drawn by me, the were cut from an ad in Vogue ... I wanted the the flowers to have "faces" but that was too much.  This one took much longer than most of the others i have completed but it was sunday ... and a lazy relaxing sunday at that!!!
Thank you again, for stopping by and watching my progress ... I encourage you all to pick up a pencil and paper and do something every day ... just doodle and see what comes of it!

peace love and paper!

These are both so playful. I can see the glitter on the 2nd photo but not the first. Probably just camera angle. Your Alice flowers are perfect. 'The moon looked down upon us and smiled' is wonderful.

Hope you're feeling better and more focused.
