Take these broken wings ............and learn to fly again.....




Hello friends

Another card for the 'Blog to Hop'..........


I had this lovely Itty bitty stamp from Unity Stamps Fly Free with me designed by Tanis Geisbrecht which went so well with my thoughts on this sensitive issue of  Domestic Violence. The text on the butterfly says...Fly Free....Take wings....


I started with stenciling the hearts with ColourArte Radiant Gel Dimensional Paint in Emperor's Gold and then sponging with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then splattering with water to get the distressed effect....



 Stamped one butterfly with Versamark and embossed using Zing Metallic Gold embossing Powder. The other was stamped with Archival black, fussy cut and colored using the awesome Silks Acrylic Glaze in Iridescent Violet which gives it a lovely translucent purple shimmer .......

I do hope that this wonderful initiative by Becca Cruger helps in creating awareness, healing and support ...and those in need can take those broken wings and learn to fly again.............I leave you with these beautiful lines......................

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again

And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again....................
from "Broken Wings"(originally by Mr Mister)

The Silent Tear.....................


Hello friends
 This card is for the Hop to Stop Domestic Violence awareness challenge. 

Purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month. 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet. 
And women aren't the only people who are affected! Women, men, transgender - gender doesn't matter. Domestic violence is something that exists regardless of gender, socioeconomic status, religion, education level, etc.

I suspect that the figures are significantly higher in India. The abuse and violence is not only physical but is emotional too. on top of it is the victim's sense of 'shame' which makes them suffer silently...shedding 'silent tears'......... 

I wanted to create a hard- hitting visual with a strong positive affirmation of hope and faith, so my card does not use the goody goody happy colors, it is mounted on the drab kind of Kraft layers without any color, then a layer of dark colors showing the chaos and disturbance and out of all that...... the emergence of the strong woman who with all the hurt, pain and suffering decides to Live, Create and Tell the story ...........



I agree with  Becca Cruger that "...... in sharing our stories, we can heal and help."


For this card I have used some of my Gelli Prints made in various shades of Deep Purple and lavender using ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes in Boysenberry, Raspberry Wine, TealZircon and Sunflower

I have used the Andy Skinner stencil 'Strike the Pose' from DecoArt and DecoArt Media Black Gesso to stencil the face on the gelli Print.......
I have distressed the edges and sponged with black archival ink, layered on a kraft card from DCWV and doodled with Black Micron 0.5 tip pen. The tear drop is made using the glue gun and it is highlighted with a bit of Metallic Lustre  in DecoArt Silver Spark............



There is another work of mine, a mixed media work named 'Bruises' on a similar theme which you can see here

Altered Art Journal with ColourArte

Hello friends

Here is an Altered brochure courtesy my dentist which I have used to make an Art Journal. As the pages were thick and in matte finish, I decided to prep the pages with Gesso and make this for my Design Team post for ColourArte.

Radiant Rain Shimmer Mist ,Pink Grapefruit,  approximately 1.5 oz
Is a unique Watercolor-Acrylic Hybrid paint consisting of brilliant finely dispersed pigments, micas, proprietary crystalline elements and acrylic resin binder.When misted it produces gorgeous shimmering color adding brilliance to your art

Bliss of Solitude- a double canvas with Decoart

Hello Friends

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.......
these lines are from the poem 'I Wandered lonely as a cloud' popularly known as 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth.

These lines kept on playing in my mind when I was creating this canvas and I kept on pondering on the word Solitude..........although the dictionary meaning is 'The state or quality of being alone or remote from others'....solitude is not loneliness, it is a vibrant space which is blissful and full of creative possibilities.........  enough with the philosophy........

Here is a mixed media double canvas Bliss of Solitude with DecoArt products


I have used the DecoArt Modelling Paste  with a palette knife to give background texture , various stencils are used to create additional texture and colors by DecoArt Media Misters
The focal image is the wonderful Andy Skinner Stencil - Strike the Pose (12"x3")

There are so many layers in this work....here you can see the book pages, embossing powders, DecoArt Crackle paste..............


some areas have been distressed using a pumice stone ...and some highlighted with DecoArt metallic-lustre in Iced Expresso.
