a little inspired

Thursday, September 3, 2009

i'm a little bit excited! i've just produced my first piece of artwork! inspired by the book this lady wrote, i decided to give mixed media collages a go. using bits of fabric, pages of magazines, buttons, paint, stamps, gel medium, gesso and charcoal i put together a mish mash of all sorts of things...it was really good to get away from the every day busy-ness of everything and get a bit messy.

it's not perfect, but i like how it turned out...now...what's next?!

great job taking on a new project! This must have taken a long time and much patience...I can see how much care you put into all the details. Really nice...I look forward to seeing more of your artwork. :)

hello aimee, i love it! a success indeed. now you just HAVE to make one for me! maybe one with a bit of a baby theme...for the nursery?? it needs to be 1m long X 0.5m wide, if you could incorporate a few birdies into it that would be cool too...

(btw i'm totally just joking)

(i hope this comment gets moderated cos i've gone mad! :)
