Well as you know I was accepted to be on the Dream Valley Challenges Design Team. This is a first for me. Not only have I never entered into a challenge before but I've never been on a DT. I was a little intimidated. Good thing the first challenge was "anything goes". So I created some art for my ALMOST finished craft room (I'll be posting about that next week). I had an old wooden artist's pallet that I picked up at a random store a few years ago. I stepped out of my box and did some whimsical altered art (also a first for me). I flipped through my old art books for some inspiration and found this lovely Goya print:
It made me laugh! And anything that makes me laugh is right up my alley. Plus I had some scrap K&Company papers that I've been itching to use! Here's what I came up with:
The clock parts are older than I am! They were my dad's who used to make clocks for a hobby long before I was born. The ribbon is actually paper ribbon. I wanted to tie in the blue from the umbrella's.
Here's some close ups:
Goya has a much deeper meaning behind this portrait (side note: were all artists back then crazy in the head?), but I think the cat in the background to the left was saying "what the....a bird on a leash?!" (another side note: I had a cat named Panther who I walked on a leash. And I took her to parks)
When I found this quote it reminded me of how God takes care of me. He might not always be able to protect me from the storms, but He's there to walk through them with me.
