|Evidence That I Am|
I've always enjoyed the monthly challenges (a/k/a Crusades) that one one of my favorite artists, Michelle Ward, poses on her website for the Green Pepper Street Team. I haven't participated in awhile - and I am also behind in my New Year's commitment to stay current with the "Sketchbook Challenge". I do have hopes of becoming current with both places though!
This month Michelle posed the challenge: Series: Evidence; A Forensic Self Portrait. The concept really intrigued me. I have lots of ideas floating through my head based on this theme but this is the one that popped out first.
I used inks, acrylics, gesso, decorative papers (some supplied by Michelle), stamps and pens to create this page. I had no idea where it was going when I began and I hemmed and hawed before deciding that it was "done". It's the first of what I think may become a series though. A warm-up maybe. Self portraits a very interesting concept I think. We did something like this when I was in photography school many years ago. At that time I created a rather staid self-portrait that included the things that were meaningful to me at the time : airplanes, plane tickets, passport and maps. What a difference the years can make ! Yeah !
Hello Marie! Glad to have you back playing along with us. How cool that you felt it and got started and wow! Done, and fantastic! Love how you layered all the interesting tiny bits that you are connected to, and love that you totally made the provided labels your own. I can hear your enthusiasm and motivation to make more pages. Yay! THANKS for sharing your work with the team.ReplyDelete
Wonderful page and great idea for a series.ReplyDelete
Marie I love seeing you in a crusade again. These colors are so great together. What a good idea for a series, and I think it would be a great idea to do a whole journal of 'self' evidence. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
