Art,  WIP Fridays

Turning towards the sun…

 Here's the second card in the series. It didn't scan very well- the background is actually more of a soft green, and you can't see the resist stamping that's behind the words. (I'll try to get a better photograph of this up later this afternoon.) [[ETA: Better picture up now.]]This one didn't go quite as I had imagined- I had the frustrating experience of having pen after pen die on me. (All American Crafts and Martha Stewart/EK Success) The trusty old Creative Memories pens always worked, but the color palette wasn't quite what I wanted. I am beginning to wonder if the pens were just too cold…but then that doesn't explain why the CM ones worked and nothing else would.
    The words are a bit of Rebekah's post the other day. I don't know if she realized how poetic her words were, but they immediately came to mind as I worked with the peaceful, light filled colors this week.
    Perhaps the most revealing? I am impulsively impatient. Last week's card required a lot of precision and a lot of waiting between the delicate tracing paper and the alcohol ink, and nearly a half hours worth of work to cut out the Celtic cross- but this week…I could not wait the five minutes for the acrylic paint to dry (Ranger/Advantus). I messed this card up more than I care to admit. I find it interesting that I could work and work at the card last week, and struggled so much with the patience this week…definitely a work in progress.
