Wishcasting Wednesday What do you wish to dare?
Today I wish to dare to be the real me. To step out of what society and myself included thinks I should be. I dare to have the confidence to pull off the class I am envisioning for my mixed media network. There is so much out there already that I dare to think I can come up with someone that no one else is doing. I wish to take that leap that makes it a reality. To see what other wishcasters are doing go here.
I've also been playing some in the studio today. I felt like playing with paper scraps today. Instead of making stitched paper. I just drew a grid and glued down scraps.
I loved the colors in this page so I took a picture to use the background at a future time. Then when I started looking for images to enhance the page I was stuck on two so I thought why not do two pages at the same time
The colors reminded me of Spring and since we have sunshine today I am really longing for spring. I wrote a little poem and added it to the piece. I used soft pastels to color the papers and outlined it all in black marker.
On the second one, I added the image and wrote a poem and colored it with pastels. This one I outlined in charcoal. The xeroxed copy was shorter on one side so I stitched some fabric on the edge. I have used backgrounds more than once before but this was the first time I did it at the same time. This was so much fun I may have to play with this background some more.
