This is my entry for August over on the Country View Crafts blog.
The challenge is Word Play. I saw this quote some time ago and wanted to incorporate it within my art.
I started with some chipboard and sprayed using Dylusions ink spray in black. When this was dry I stamped and embossed 3 light bulbs.
I used white and yellow soft pastels around each bulb and blended using a paper stump.
The inside of the bulb I decided to use Daler Rowney thick body acrylic paint in yellow and white. I mixed them using a cocktail stick and applied to the middle of each bulb giving dimention.
The words were hand written using a Zig chalk writer in yellow.
I wanted to add further elements to this, but decided against it as I wanted my eyes only to be drawn towards the bulbs, hopefully to fully understand the words!!
I really enjoyed this challenge, I am sure I am not alone in saying we all have dark times in our lives, and there is always light to be found...
