This weeks challenge is hosted by Patrice. She came up with the wonderful theme of DANCE.
I thought about it for a while, and decided one of my favourite dances is with the wind. Be that a person, a bird or a tree dancing with the wind - I love the interaction.
And since I felt like playing with collage this week, I laid out bits of resin paper and tea bag dyed paper into this plant dancing in the wind. It is not glued down at this point ....
and it continued to change a bit when I glued it down.
Then I decided to play with the words.
I love the way words look, but have always steered away from making words the main focus of my creations.
Perhaps this is because in grade 2 my teacher made me stay after school and write lines because my printing was messy. I had to write - 'I will print neatly.' over and over every night.
So I believed I would never have 'nice' handwriting.
I enjoyed making this so very much.... and have been thinking of what other words I may create with.
I then had a look how both of these pieces looked in a mat.
Have fun dancing with the wind!
