Intuitive layers

Dear friends, this piece of art was done as part of workshop 21 secrets. it was lots of layers which isn't my usual artwork. i usually do simple. I found this one challenging. Gessoed page and scribbled over with watercolor pencil. Paint in shapes that i see and look for images and paint in some more. DO reverse stenciling in the background. paint in grey paint in background. write inside shapes about the work. I used black and white pens. Gesso parts out that don't like which I did as so many layers. Tear up book pages and glue to page. I was supposed to sew pieces of art and add to work as well but stopped here and did sewn pieces as separate art work...which is the second picture. lots of love from susan JOY

Like both of these. First one looks like sweet angels and the second set looks great with the sewing added.

Sounds like a lot of hard work! It paid off, though! The buttons are so whimsical!

his susan,

loved your artwork. I haven't been on your blog for a while. The colours and compositions are really cheerful and not a foot wrong...

p.s.

I just read about the blanket you made for the lady in the hospital. It really moved me that you have done such a kind thing for someone who will have really suffered.

lots of love, angiex
