Fractured

Yesterday I had a great day with the girls in my Journal Junkies group. We had the get together locally this time and it was great. I could actually sit back and relax in the morning rather than dash around and then drive 45 minutes north. Unfortunately most people live north so coming south will be a bit of a treat.

This last week I have been working on a couple of canvas's. One you will have to wait until it is shown on the Aussie Dares web site but the one below is one I was just messing around with. When I first started searching the Internet for images I came across this fairy and fell in love with her. The colouring and the mood are just gorgeous. My hat goes off to the artist though I don't know who it is. I have called this one Fractured. She portrays a sad loneliness to me and for some reason I decided to cut the picture up into small tiles. I wasn't sure if I would use the tiles until I put the leaf embellishment down and realised she disappeared into the background. So on came the tiles and the effect they gave along with the crackle medium on the leaves made me think of the word fractured. So that is what has stuck. I have also drawn over her in an opaque sliver pen that you can't see on the scan below. It adds a hint of magic fairy dust to her I think.
