My local mixed media group is having an altered book round robin. The first book I received to work in had the theme "Adventures in Art" and was looking for examples of bold, brave, fearless art. So, I made a graffiti wall with some of my favorite brave art sayings, then placed four of my favorite stampotique brave girls in front and gave them stickled wings and crowns. The scan really is much clearer if you click on the image to enlarge it!
This was inspired by this week's compendium of curiosities challenge to use distress stickles (I used scattered straw over vintage photo ink) and the current stampotique designs challenge to use wings. Here's the quotes on the wall:
"She went out on a limb, had it break off behind her, and discovered she could fly."
"She realized that she was missing a great deal by being sensible."
"She colored her thoughts with only the brightest hues."
"She took the leap and built her wings on the way down."
"She was an artist and her life was her canvas."
"She woke up one day and threw away all of her excuses."
All quotes from the book She by Kobi Yamada.
Have you done anything brave lately - artistically or otherwise?
