Now - apologies to all those who will read this on the dare blog too - I am now going to do a copy and paste of exactly what I typed over there. Because, well, I'm lazy :-P
Not sure how Teesha-ish it turned out, or even if it's finished yet - it kind of just evolved. I've had this folding screen thingy from BB for quite a while, and decided it was perfect for this dare. It's quite large - each section is 12 x 18 inches - but once I started it I finished it in one night (don't look too closely, though!).
The quote is from TS Eliot and reads:
we shall not cease from exploration
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time
This quote is a special one for me, as I found where I had written it an an old art journal from 1987, and it relates so well to how I am enjoying exploring my creativity again. Back then, I used to create a lot of artworks that were inspired by the night sky, but I would have been too critical of the "cuteness" of this - so it feels kind of freeing to be 20yrs older and less self conscious, and happy to just create and have fun :-)
You can find the screens at blue bazaar, in the "altered items" section of the craft shop. I also used some of the gorgeous new cherryArte rub-ons. Apart from that, I just used black gesso, Heidi Swapp fuzzy rub-on stars, lots of patterned paper scraps, some oil pastels, stamps and staz-on, and a white pencil.
