The beginning of a page in my Hands AB

I'm doing the happy dance. Tomorrow is our We3 art day, and I have just started to get ready, even though I've thought about it for several weeks. I've been working on a long term project and started this page in my Hands AB instead of cleaning house and setting up the tables and such we will need for this project.

For this piece, I began by laying down layers and layers of paint, paper, and tissue.

Next, I added sheet music to which I added my favorite fluid acrylic: azo gold. Not liking that, I added blue to the page, but forgot to photograph it. I'm not sure what happened in the lower corner of the picture, but I took these photos with my new camera and I'm still just learning how to use it. It was either me getting in the way of the lens, or it was the flash (which I never used on the other camera) burning out part of the image. I suspect it was me, though!

As much as I would LOVE to stay awhile, I must begin thinking about our upcoming day.

you've had me thinking about your hand book alot! if I can get my idea out of my head and onto paper I would like to do a hand spread in one of my books!

these pages have so much interest and texture!!!

when I got my new camera I noticed the way I held it also put my finger or thumb in the way, took a little while and I got used to it
