I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feelin' again
All around, tryin' to get the feelin' again
And I've looked high and low
And everywhere I possibly can
But there's no tryin' to get the feelin' again
It seemed to disappear as fast as it came
Here is what happened. Step by step. Almost.
I put away everything I have been using for the last ump-teen projects.
Opened a fresh new (0ld) book. Chopin had me wanting to flow with a paintbrush. I just painted with the music, free happy strokes in shades of lime green and peach. Next came a few rubberstamps and stenciling. I found some delicious teal tissue paper and covered the entire layout, then added white tissue and gesso. Wow! That was fun!
This whole exercise was a search for my muse, so I decided to dedicate this page to her. This lovely black and white image spoke to me. The letters are cut out of antiqued music. Before glueing anything down, I added another layer of stamping, this time in white. Can you see the writing and the Greek columns?
Then came the embellishing. Jewels, beads, cord, puzzle pieces........more stamping.....
