Art Challenge: Focal Point vs. Layering
Journal Prompt: Time keeps on ticking
Your challenge is to create a focal point on your piece this week. Add layering as you choose.
Next it was time for my focal point... and the story.
I have been ill lately. My sole activity was to get from the bed to my favorite chair in front of the TV. After a marathon of Say Yes to the Dress (about brides choosing their wedding gown) I had flower and sequin embellishments seared into my brain. I thought it was appropriate to document my week by being inspired by these wedding gowns.
I grabbed a hand carved stamp and stamped the image on the pages from a very old Miss Manners book. I sketched leaves and cut both out.
I added a branch with oil pastels. I punched circles of the same book text to represent the petals that are floating down from the branch and collecting along the ground.
In keeping with the ephemera theme, I used tickets to spell out "Focus".
And with that I am calling it done.
