Sacred Paths and Slippery Dreams

Dscn2254 Can I bear to cover this up by adding embellishments?  I don't think so.  On this one I learned the difference between using a palette knife and a brush.  Palette knife leaves a very smooth surface.  And the green colour are the dyed paper towels. 



Dscn2245 Remember to click any image to enlarge.  The background for the pages on the right is an idea for a quilt design but not with these colours.  This one is sorta my ceiling of the chapel moment.



Dscn2256 oooo, a dream sequence here...the medium is still wet but I'll prolly tone down the white in the lower left corner. 



And someone in the Artful Quilter's blog ring is feeding my book altering addiction :)  More about that tomorrow!

  1. For that first page, how about just a little text? Some simple words, like a bit of Haiku, or the Phrase I came up with for a Christmas gift of artful things, "creativity feeds the soul"..."may your soul never go hungry".
