Grace

Craft Barn challenge time - the words are peaceful or grace, not really my kind of words......have to be all serious hehe!! Anyway I settled on this poem by Emily Dickinson called The Wind and I've just put the last part of it on my page.

It was the reverse of the page from my previous challenge so I just decided to leave the ink blobs that had bled through as part of the background I quite like doing that with whatever splodges and blobs I've managed to leave from previous work.



I used blue pastels in the background and then I used salty ocean distress over a splodge away stencil for the tree. The I used a metallic molotow pen to draw the leaves like they are blowing off the tree in the wind. Then I just simply wrote on the words with a calligraphy pen.

  9. I like how you actually accentuated the bleed through. I've had to cover mine up before, but I really like how you used it to your advantage. Those leaves blowing in the wind remind me that autumn is not far away. You did a marvelous job with this page and the quote. Dickinson knew how to write, didn't she?
