Each month the inimitable Michelle Ward from Green Pepper Press posts a challenge theme for the month. This month's theme was "In Case Of Emergency". I think the idea was of a more realistic case but somehow when I started working on the page my thinking became more abstract. Most of my birth family is gone and so, in case of emergency I want to be reminded of things - about them and about myself. I want to know that tomorrow will be better and that I will still be loved and appreciated.
You can really see ( through some of this glare) how polished I got the surface of the Venetian Plaster that I mentioned in yesterday's post. I am thoroughly besotted with the stuff and have another page drying now. It takes colors beautifully - and, if I make a mistake I can remove color with alcohol easily and completely. I didn't like how bold the text looked on this surface and so I used an alcohol soaked cloth to take it all down a notch. There are some things I am not happy with about this page in general but I had fun learning about the characteristics of this plaster and may spend some time making another page that pleases me more
