Google+ What I Made Today: Layers

Layers

In between making love with my gardens, in my kitchen, and making a kind gesture or two I made layers . . .

Remember this one I started a bit back? You may have seen the first few layers.
I added paint and pen and more paint and more pen and a little gesso. 
And at least one more targeted layer of gold.
I wonder what I'll do with this next? Maybe let it rest.

Then I played with layers of crayon and acrylic paint. This was inspired by a blog post from Zom.


Then . . . fresh art journal pages give way to a layer of swirled gesso and three simple colors.

I doodled pen on top of that. 
I'm starting to see a palm tree and some wildlife.  Maybe even a boat? We shall see. We shall see.

I also made a kick-ass garden soup for dinner, complete with calendula flower petals. Yum!

Your book is coming along beautifully! It's amazing to me how you can click off photos in between stages. I usually have to sit and create until I'm finished. The soup sounds delish!

Gee, I am finding your pages fascinating. I have never worked from the landscape up.
It is like we are visiting and revisiting some other land. I can't wait to see more!
