The 15th is Lisa's birthday and I plan to give her the sign as a gift. This sign will hang outside the entrance of the Inspirational Retreat, http://www.lisalarose.blogspot.com
Here's some details I added...
This is the very first time I created a mixed media collage where I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like and it came out very close to how I had envisioned.
There are many layers involved. I just kept adding to it to get some depth. When I felt less was more and needed to stop, which in my case is very difficult, I laid down the calligraphy using a brush and acrylic black ink. Several layers of ink went down as well to deepen the black and I sprinkled Schmienke gold powder while it was drying.
This is a piece of wood that I had used as a shelf in the past. It's 4 feet by 2 feet and is the biggest piece I've ever worked on.
I hope she likes it....I can hardly wait to give it to her.
I'm so grateful to be able to share my art with others. I'm mixed media and love doing lots of different mediums. My main stay is calligraphy of course and most of my art has words in them, hence "The Word is ART". Hope you like what you see and come back often.
Have a blessed day. Renee
