When we went to Epcot last month, I took 161 photos of which I think 10 are really good (that's about standard and we always need to remind ourselves that only a little bit of whatever we do is truly brilliant - the rest is practice). I love the above shot taken in the Morocco exhibit - I was fascinated with the hint of mystery in the vivid interior. I wanted to scrap this photo and also I want to paint the scene in watercolors. Last week Prima had a video class on collaging so I watched parts of it and used some of the ideas to create this collage - I hadn't intended to use this photo - in fact, when I made the background, I had no idea what photo that I would use but the whole thing just came together
I added some Prima flowers and some Glimmer glass - the background was very fun to make and I took photos as I went along so I could do a tutorial later. Then, since I had my paints out, I decided to paint an abstract of the photo (later I will do a more traditional and more realistic painting - this was strictly for fun and to loosen up)
I then used a pen to draw in the lines.
So far I was having so much painting that I just wanted to keep on so I painted a background using glimmer mists and stamping - not sure what to scrap on it but I know the perfect photo will come along. I actually scanned this piece so I can print it out on cardstock and use as patterned paper.
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday - it looks to be a beautiful day here. Right now I have some laundry in and I am going to watch Coco before Chanel and eat some breakfast.
