April Challenge...

I am in a group with other artists that challenge each other to step outside their comfort zone and create!! This month we were given the challenge of doing something with player piano paper. Which is very thin and fragile and has little markings on it where it runs thru the gears to play the music...on the side of the paper some of the words were printed for the song. I did this piece on a 5 by 7 canvas board...First laying a background color down...going over that with several layers of plaster raked on...then highlighted with metallic gold and copper paint...The lace is from a wonderful stash I received from a friend of mine ...the words that I used from the piano paper were...THINKING...DREAMING... A lot of the paper is also within the plaster...I added the rolled up book pages which were antiqued and then added the old key and ostrich feather...Totally out of my comfort zone...but great fun!!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie
