Wednesday started off with another wonderful sunrise, but soon became very cloudy and drizzly. I still enjoyed my walk, even thought I 'only' managed 15.000 steps, but I think that's okay really. I got my shopping on the way home, and even managed to do a little of the dreaded H*******K when I got home. But really just a little, a sort of surface make-up.
This is the second page I made using my Buddha-head image, and one of Buddha's quotes about silence.
I painted the background with various blues, greys purple and gold ink, which I spraed with water to mix and move the colours a bit. The head on the photo was fussy cut, and then coated with crackle varnish and distressed to make it a bit different to the first edition. The Gold 'light' around the head was once again made with Inka Gold, using gunmetal as a base and gold on top. I drew the pattern for the flourishes on the sides, and cut it out to make a template, which I coloured with gold gel pen and edged with white highlighter.
I enjoyed making both of the Buddha pages, it was really something different for me.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin, AJJ, Silence and to Simon's Monday Challenge, anything goes.
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
