Going for some drama today. I had already painted some very thin paper with some inks (don't know what kind, they're come in ink shaped bottles) and then some acrylic paint put on with some foam stamps and texture tools. It was for a different project that a friend and I did together and she brought all the supplies. For the yellow squares, I just squished it in a ball, flattened it and glued it to cs. The pieces that I cut the feathers out of was a bit heavier so I didn't do anything to them.

Your designs are always so interesting and a feast for the eyes. It's bold, dramatic, and the embossing is great (I have a bazillion but not this one...it's really appealing) .

aside from the drama of your colour scheme, I love those feathers most of all. So interesting to focus on each detail of the patterns you got, either high art, or slopping?!!!
Wink. Gotta love the freedom one finds in art.

Drama is right. I was looking at this on the bus, but knew I needed to see it on a bigger screen to really see those feathers. They are fantastic, an amazing ethnic look to them - compounded by the geometric background. Laughed at the ink-shape bottles. It's funny, isn't it, that there's such a classic ink-bottle shape. Although I know I've seen some round calligraphy ones, all my assorted ones are the typical ink-bottle.
