I finished the back of the Zetti page last night. I wanted to go with what I perceive as a Teesha Moore signature colour combination - yellow / red. I used one of my favourite Zetti stamps and a great quote from the Zetti line - "real art has the capacity to make us nervous":
I continues the doodle theme with white accents around the quote. All in all I am really pleased with this page (both sides actually!). I am looking forward to getting back an accordian book now, as I am very interested to see how others perceive/interperet this great (modern) artist's work.
As planned in yesterday's post I completed a 4-slide microscope mailer for another swap today. I have called it "weary winter". This is the front cover.
(the words along the top say "even in the long, weary winter;")
And the inside:
(the continuation of the quote is "Diana could find lovely flowers")
Like most of my arty fiddlings this was intended to be something else all together - I had located my Artchix "flirt" collage sheet (designed for microscope slides) and was going to go with a Parisian fashion theme.... so much for that!
I don't quite know how this one evolved, but I had a couple of images left from the front of the Zetti page (bet you wondered where you had seen her recently!), and her solemnity really appeals to me .... I also had bits of a blue artchix sheet that I "found" when I was tidying up my table the other day.... and the recent architecture tryptich made me rediscover some of my (large) collection of shrine & frame stamps. I also picked up the lumieres again after a bit of a break - must have been quite a long break as my blue halo gold was an ugly gluggy mess - and rediscovered what a great background they make on black gesso. I even did some embossing! The whole thing just sort of fell together. I hope that the recipient enjoys looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Given the fairly average night on tv tonight I might tackle some ATC's , or even some MOO cards... will just have to see where the muse takes me!
