So today I have my project for the ePaperie Team Picks Challenge!! I really hope that you will all join us and make scrapbook page, art journal, canvas, altered item...the sky is the limit. Use the word hope, or make a piece of art that represents a hope that you have for 2014. Anyway that you interpret hope.
The last two challenges from ePaperie, the Altered and Team picks have really hit close to home. My husband's wonderful cousin is in the hospital waiting for a heart transplant. She is very brave and strong but I know that the time that she has spent in the hospital must be becoming very difficult. So with the hearts challenge and this Hope challenge, I just couldn't keep keep myself from creating this. This is just a little reminder, how strong just a small bit of hope can be. And my hope for 2014, is for Jana to get a wonderful, new, strong heart. (The earlier in 2014, the better!!)
I started with a sketch. Then I watercolored with neocolors. I really tried SO hard to keep white space on the page because I just wanted this little canvas to be simple and not too busy.
I painted some felt with white gesso and then painted it with one of my favorite colors, Quinacridone Magenta by Golden. The felt keeps it's shape so well and provides an excellent pop of texture!
I painted around the edges of the cavas with my other favorite paint colors! I glued the watercolored picture down to the canvas.
What is your hope for 2014? Make something and share with us at Eclectic Paperie!
