This weeks challenge over on Arty Girlz is to use your YOUR favourite colour/s on your creation. As always its up to you what style of art work you create as Julie and I hope to encourage all types of crofter's and artists to join in with our challenges. so pop on over there and have a go and join in .
This is mine its an 8x8 canvas board. My favourite colours are purple's and lilac's going in to blues. I used acrylic paint for the background I found an image of wing's on the Internet a while back and traced them on to acetate and cut them out to make a stencil. I had the heart negative already. I used purple acrylic paint over the stencils then used gel pen in black to add depth to the heart and wings. oh and a bit of Gesso here and there
It's not finished yet not sure what I'm gonna do but it just don't feel finished if you know what i mean.
I really do love hearts with wings and would love a Tattoo with a winged heart but we'll see ;-)
The picture isn't doing the colours any justice at all the heart and wings are a lovely deep purple colour but look blueish in the pic.

I collages the block with papers that had ladies, tea pots , tea cups and writing on it. used different colours of paint over the top and rubbed some off to reveal a little bit of the images underneath then added the black and white image and went round the edge with a soft white pencil and a charcoal pencil to blend the image in. since i took the picture i have given it a coat of beeswax to finish it off . Linda has kindly added this to the Awfullly big art adventure blog as there theme last week was chunky block's

This weeks Arty Girlz challenge is to have a Hand Drawn Element on your project.
I have used one of my favourite quotes by Helen Keller.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart.
