Alpha Challenge 'R'

Hi everybody! I  needed a long time to decide which word I should choose for 'R', but now I have chosen and my page is finished. I chose Rabbi as my word. The background has been painted light blue and then sprayed with a darker blue and allowed to drip. I splodged a bit of gold ink onto it before spraying. I made the three dancing rabbis as templates, so I can use them again, and just had to draw round them with a gold gel-pen and fill in the figures with a felt-tip. The scroll  has been fussy cut, and the definition written there, to give it a central position. I used a stencil and gold gel-pen for the title.

Hope you are having a good day. Take care, have fun and thanks for coming by!

  26. I can hear them singing "if I were a rich man" Gorgeous piece Valerie! You have such a talent with this! I love how you knew to place his heel just above the gold splotch and another as if the singing was coming out of his soul and the 3rd showing the magic of his dance in the kicking of his legs! This is so expressive Valerie, awesome! ~Diane

  31. The background is amazing. Love the different blues and the drippage. The gold next to the blue is gorgeous. How cool are those rabbis (not to be confused with rabbits who dance very differently :) ). Great take on the letter R.
