I love playing with words and their meanings!
So when Carla Sonheim announced this NEW online class on Word Play, taught by the fabulous Lynn Whipple – I jumped “write” in!
I created this piece today based on a quote from Dr. Seuss:
It says: “Shout Loud! I am LUCKY to be what I am! Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!”
I glued a sheet from an old book on names to 140 lb hot press watercolor paper with matte medium. After it dried, I glued on this old photo (no relation) and painted Golden fluid acrylic paint in Titan Buff, randomly over the background.
Next, I glued the gelli-printed hats and jar to the paper, outlining them with a black pen. I tried to add a little color to some of the words with wax pastels. I found the name, “Turveydrop” in the text so this is what I named my couple.
I want to add more to this piece after I take Lynn Whipple’s online class on September 15-26. Will you be joining in the FUN?! I hope so!
Happy Friday! 🙂
