Home sweet home, that is my spread for today in my altered book:
Do you feel like joining me for that creative journey at my “home town”? It all began with covering a page with black gesso in my altered book.
Then came a layer of white acrylic spread with Brayer, I love the texture that the paint gives when I use a thicker layer spread with Brayer.
Then came some stencilling work with black graphite texture paste, the sun, some clouds and the houses.
It was a nice monochrome image, but if we talk about home, it needs to be warm and colourful, and exactly that feeling I missed at this point. So I decided to colour my spread with aquarelle.
Great now I have the colours, but I need something that brings my spread to life, something living, so I decided to add some birds with gel pen and to make them more dimensional I was even drawing there flight route with pencil and adding glass beads as their bodies. As I had my gel pen in my hand, I added my text as well.
Finally I splattered some yellow around as sun rays and light all over.
Okey, the sun is not always shining by us, even today it is quiet grey and rainy (channel weather), but I would like to visualise my home town as a sunny place full home bird tweets. What about your vision of your home town?
