It has taken me forever to think of something to interpret for the fourth Wanderlust book prompt for the Everything Art course.. "the bravest moment in my life" - it totally stumped me.
In the end, I just started making a background in my Wanderlust journal; with heavy gesso and Infusions, those gorgeous new Paperartsy dye powders infused with colour and walnut crystals.
and spritzed some water.
let it drip and run then spread with the brayer again - totally just playing got some great marks in the gesso.
Left this overnight, hoping the next stage would come to me...
found some lace in my collection which is a kind of sage-green colour (one of the Infusions I used was the sage one) and cut some lengths for the side of the pages,
added some torn book page painted with the White Fire Fresco (love love love this one)
and some fibre paste (mine's by Golden) with a palette knife, randomly on the background..
Still not sure what I could interpret that I had ever done that was brave in any way... but as you can see I have written something so...
The white fire paint was looking a little bright, so I added a small amount of white gesso over the top, wiping it back with some paper towel to remove most of it... it tones in a little better now.
the next prompt is up now - oh my it is another toughie!! it may be a while before that one gets done too!
