After a "rough day at the office" I needed to reflect on my strengths and gifts.
I began with an already prepared background of white gesso and layers of mustard yellow and blue acrylic glaze. I used a hard edge to scrape the top layer for a rough look.
Allow to dry and then use a thin brush with acrylic paint or a wide marker pen to write bold words that describe what is uniquely you.
I wanted to tone down the boldness of the words and also bring in my love for flowers so I cut a variety of flower shapes from pretty papers and glued them over and around the words to create a layered collage.
