A bit of a spooky post today....
I started with THIS fun rain scented whipped soap as my inspiration along with the words in Lamentations 3 which are VERY SPOOKY. Seems the writer has pretty much given up and then the hope shines through a bit at the end. I love the poetry of the verses but this was a very sad time in our history.
I started with a layer of gesso, then a layer of gray Gouache colors. Mixed in a bit of yellow and red for fun. Then I put down another layer of gesso and while wet I put down the skull part of a halloween napkin (goes with the words of the verse - I promise). Another layer of gesso and then the words. Needed something fun so I added in a few silver teeth. The skull needed something so I added in a bit of the yellow and painted a few of the dark parts a little darker. You can see my first attempt at doing a video of my crafting HERE.
Linking to Tracey's theme at **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* - The Meaning Of... Lamentations details out the despair and the hope the Israelites had at that time (and we have today). Things may seem bleak in our darkest hours, but God is always there with His faithful love.
And of course, I have some cards from this weekend to share. This first one is a case of Kath who is this week's Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers (HERE is her fabulous card).HERE. I plan to do another case of it soon adding in some more layers like she did plus I am going to get some mica spray for sure! That stuff looks super cool.
