Sometimes you don’t plan things. They just happen. Never thought of using marbled colored paper with an embossing plate, but in this case it works well. I love how the layered bee from a Silhouette file turned out. The only thing to add is a sentiment. Why? Bee-cause!
Some people are “Inside the Box”. Well, I am “Outside the Box”. I’m started to get a feel for what comes natural to me and that is a sketchy look. I don’t have to color in the lines. I can doodle all I want. I do say that I get a lot of my inspiration by looking at what others create. I take all those images and come up with a general picture in my mind. Sometimes it comes out pretty darn close, but most of the time, it is a completely different look. This is probably one of my favorite canvas’s I finished. The hardest part for me was putting the lettering on as I didn’t want to mess up the rest of my work. I think, it turned out great. I loved doing all the doodling and with each piece I learn something new. Art is “Outside the Box”. You have to take risks. That’s the one thing I love about multimedia. If you mess up, you can paint over it:)
