For those we love....
When I saw this image below, it clearly spoke to me and I wanted to CASE the idea onto a canvas. Thank you to the fabulous artist who created this image and gave me inspiration.
I started by making my own canvas with paper and then covering it with a piece of material that I cut from a table cloth, purchased at the Dollar Store. I'll probably have enough material to make 40 more canvases, at least. Very inexpensive and handy!
The focal point of the entire canvas is this tiny purple ribbon. See how the pixie dust falls from it, and far beneath, in the depths of the darkness, there grows two purple flowers. Simon Says Wednesday challenge is all about Tie It Up and I felt this worked perfectly.
I wanted to add this canvas to several other challenges as well and Frilly and Funkie are all about Things With Wings. My original wings were very colorful and that didn't fit the color scheme, so I painted over them with yellow and then highlighted with copics in oranges. The veins were then hand drawn and added to the Silhouette fairy.
This close up is to show that I tried to capture the texture and feeling from the mood board at Anything But Cute where their theme is Making Magic, and certainly wouldn't finding a cure be magical!
For those researching, hoping, praying and giving....
I would like for this text to apply to the challenge at Mixed Media Monthly for the theme of Get Texty.
Again, the final canvas.
