ATC Lesson 4


Lesson 4
Take a telephone page and use it as the background.
Add acrylic paint mixed with matte medium to thin.
Lay first color...dry then lay second color...add your image.

I used a telephone page that ads for fishing were displayed.
So the keen notion to use a get away fish story came to mind.
I decided to use a fish stamp.
I couldn't find the right words I wanted to cut out to use...( didn't want to write my own)...without spending the rest of today looking..so I opted for different words to add up to the same meaning...do you get it?


p.s.
I am coming back in...I don't think I am as clever as I thought this should be...
too many of you are perplexed
so
let me help you to my thought process

the story line is
the fish that got away...you probably got that
then
long___ is long
study__ is story
minit__ is short

long story short

:)

Thank you for stopping by...this is for A.R.T. ATC workshop

Mar, I have repeated the words on the phone book page (great idea, btw) and whether I say them fast or slow ... I don't get it. What am I missing? And thanks for the advice on balance. I looove this page from your journal. It's wonderful. The colors! And I love pastures. That's where I could find my balance. Jeanne (femminismo)

This art is unique and creative. Thank you for stopping by my blog-appreciated your words. I like the word balance. It was my word 5 years ago and still continues. I feel so much better when I am on a schedule of balance in my life.
