Let go of the worry- Day 11

So yesterday threw me for a loop.

I woke up at 3 a.m. with a migraine… that persisted most of the day.  Even after taking medication, I felt simply icky.

So in fairness to myself, I let day 11 slide. I picked up a pen for some line drawings but honestly, using my eyes hurt.   Then I thought… hey!  On day 6 I actually finished 2 pieces.  That counts for something right?!  You betcha!

For this piece, I had the idea of trying to figure out what would and would not (as in resist) alcohol ink.  I covered a small canvas with gesso and then laid down a quote with gel medium.  I stenciled on some fun chevron with modeling paste.

When the gel medium over the wording was dried, I covered the letters with hot glue.  Then I let the ink do its thing.

The final piece is not quite how I envisioned, but as my quote says… I am embracing the possibilities!

Thanks for reading and looking!
