Playing with the JumpStart videos gave me an opportunity to test a technique using keys presented in a video by Ronda Palazzari. Ronda was working on journal cover and using acrylic inks; I, of course, had to do my own thing using a CD and alcohol inks, but I think she'd forgive me!
I've already sliced and diced another piece into starts for making into tags.
Also on my desk is this gorgeous tag that came in the mail from my friend, Jackie P. Neal. Jackie is the owner of Creating and Sharing Mixed Media Art over on Google+ and I know she'll take it kindly to see me say she is much of a colour pig as am I. I love that her tag (January's theme was magical) makes reference to Alice in Wonderland and immediately makes me think of my friend Alice, who is also magical.
Because I find it impossible to do only one of anything, I'd started another CD piece. I'm in love with dried vegetation, and the poppy bits that John saved for me from the garden begged to be used on the CD, along with some UFO pods and other 'things' (can you tell what an avid gardener I am?). I used a blended fibres layer and then alcohol inks on these to colour. I thought this might be restful for your eyes after all that previous intense pigmentation.
Here's a close-up.
I hope your work area is a colourful one too, and that you're happily creating up a storm.
