The story of my HE{ART}

My take on challenge #108 over at CSI
I loved the colour scheme, and the inspiration by the design team members wowed me!!

 This is how I solved the case :
The scheme : I used all the colours
Evidence :
Mixed media background, bird (stamped on the painting), newsprint, flowers and stamps

I made this painting a while ago. I painted the cupcake with acrylic paint on tung and groove. I white washed it first and then aged and distressed the wood with brown shoe polish. For the quote, I used some of my chippies!
Testimony (on the back of my layout)

Art has captivated me since early childhood. As a young girl, I doodled on every empty spot on whatever paper I could get my hands on.  I cherish every bit of art.  Art has been, and continues to be, the primary outlet for my feelings. Art can speak my truths and it is often more human to me than humanity is. I just love being able to express myself without speaking. Art has grown from a mild interest to an integral part of what defines me.  The constant challenge of updating and improving technique and styles, as well as continuously finding new inspiration, has always brought me deep satisfaction. I consider myself very lucky to be surrounded by so many talented artists. I love art.  I could probably equally say, “I live art.”  I spend every day of my life thinking about art.

  1. Your page is stunning and your story captivating. Ek moet erken dat kuns en scrapping vir my terapie is. Wanneer my hande besig is met iets kreatief kan my gedagtes gaan en soveel dinge val in plek. xx
