This morning I am feeling a little unsettled (more of why later) and still stuck in the Autumn/Hallowe'en frame of mind so while I am waiting for the something that inspires me to move onto something else and into a different season I decided to finish off this project and then to show it to you.
This skull is on metal.......it was a practice piece I did when making the book in my previous post and rather than waste it I decided to add it to a journal page. Rather than trim close to the skull itself and end up with sharp metal edges I left a border of metal around it and then glued book pages over and around it to hold it in place.
Did the same with this word piece. I like the way the metal piece seems more integrated into the page with the paper right up to the edges of the metal.
Hopefully you can see the raised texture of this?
Ok, so back to why I am feeling a little unsettled........we just heard we have to leave here to come home to UK for Christmas earlier than we planned.......not a bad thing in itself but I just start to feel settled and had plans till the end of the month and then have to go! There are advantages.......might get a weekend in Paris out of it so not all bad! This set me thinking..............and I have a question for you..........do you have to feel settled and at peace to be able to create?? I find that I do!!!
Hello and welcome!
I like to travel and I'm incurably curious. I love my garden and I like to make things,
I like altered art and mixed media and have a leaning towards the slightly darker, weirder side of things....as you may notice!
