This prompt was all about Commitment - think Efemera wondering if we can all stay the 52 weeks. I had got quite far behind with this but I have another 2 in progress (taking ages to dry) and after that just two more catch ups until the next prompt post on Sunday. I used a dictionary definition from a 1950's dictionary and the meaning was all about committing a person to a place, a cause or to bind yourself to another page. Now the word commitment is constantly bandied about in terms of relationships and has now derivatives such as commitment-phobe. Oh dear wandering back into English teacher territory and I am still on holiday. I used a great deal of paint and Banana Frog's Paisley pattern stamps with more paint. I do love the dylusions paints and am beginning to run low on some colours.
The blue green background was one I had made a while ago when I was trying out ways to apply paint but I decided I did not like it and decided to act a coat of black paint.
I then stamped over the black and I was ready for my journalling - that is another thing that is running out - my white Sakura gelly roll pen which I always seem to reach for. Then I didn't like the dictionary definition left so pale so washed on some more paint.
The Paisley Pattern just seemed to lend itself to journalling around and I added in some more lines. I'm not sure about anyone else but I never seem to create the page I had in my head to begin with - it just sort of evolves. I take so many pictures to remind myself of what I do so I can look back over the ones that do and don't work. Just noticed some of the photos are landscape but it makes it easier to see some of the journalling - at least that is my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
One last thing I wanted to remind people that Art from the Heart have 10th birthday celebrations coming up and have lots of fun taster sessions. (Lens Guy are you reading this, hint, hint...)
