Every Heart has a Silver Lining
The upcoming TVAA member show is titled "Silver Linings" After visiting my friend Rebecca in CA last month, I had the perfect idea. First I gathered everything I could find in my studio that was silver.
I already had this wooden 10" x 24" wooden piece that I purchased several years ago from an antique store for way more than I would normally spend on a substrate and then had no idea what I would do with it! It seemed kind of country and outdated, but no more... It would be getting a facelift!
I taped off the edges. I collaged the frame. I glued all the silver pieces in between the hearts. The heart that was hand-made by Rebecca, (which I added some watercolor details) I glued to the top of a wooden heart. After all the glue was dried I poured 2 part resin over all of the silver pieces and it turned out well, now that I'm not afraid of resin!
We can enter up to 3 pieces...I'm working on the next piece for the show with an abandoned birds nest I found.
