I finally think Spring is here in WI! I have no more snow in my yard! The grass looks a little green! It rained all day yesterday! Spring to me always means growth. I have really been trying to grow to ACHIEVE new things in my art life. I have been taking some online classes. Right, now I am taking a banner and garland class. I think the hardest thing about trying something new is maintaining your OWN style and not trying to be like the person teaching you. Get what I mean??? I have been trying really hard to make everything I do mine.
Here is my first banner for my class:
In this banner I used 4 x 6 inch chipboard that I gesso and watercolored. I also used an old book that has the stages for a how a butterfly grows on them.
Here are a couple of close-ups
What are you doing to grow???
Thanks for stopping in! Have a wonderful HUMP day!
