Shine 30/52

This week started out, as they invariably do, with no plan, no ideas, just some scraps and a blank(ish) page.IMG_5211IMG_5214
I began with tissue paper. I love the semi-translucent. If you get the right stuff (usually cheap craft tissue) the dye runs beautifully and makes for water-colour kinda effect as soon as it comes in contact with water or glue or hands or pretty much anything. I think this must have been something more fancy, probably saved from gift wrap. (shame)
Anyhoo, it was the usual build up of layers…


There are bits of torn all sorts of paper in there now. I keep the box of scraps for recycling under my work table. There are bits from there. What the bits are don’t matter so much, it’s more just to let some shapes begin to develop.

And then the painting…. more layers

And there we have it.


Reach Out and You will Shine

Dive in: Reach Out 11/52

We all face bravery in different ways.


It isn’t always a visible show of courage


oftentimes nobody else knows quite how much it took


We all develop our ways of stepping forward, facing up.


Bright, bold, audacious.

Then what?

Then you have no choice, you gotta jump:


This week, in my little way, I faced a bravery. And I dived in to a new phase. And it’s gonna be BIG
