Sometimes life can be a real pig!! No matter how you try (so we are told) you can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear....
but you can make art from a piggy puzzle!
The theme this week over at The Game Challenge is "Name That Tune...", use musical script in your project.
So I started by covering the puzzle pieces with music paper :D I used the reverse of the puzzle pieces, just in case the image showed through...
and painted the frame a lovely crimson pink/red.
When dry, I started drawing straight onto the pieces with graphite and watercolour pencils.
Building depth with layers of water colour and pencil, and adding brown paint with a dry brush to the frame.
Tarted the frame up a bit with some Inca gold, and highlighted the image with souffle gel pens.
Adding a layer of satin varnish "pushed" the image back into the paper, and drew the musical notes out, making the piece much "richer" :D
To remind me..."When my life is in pieces...I should still sing from the heart", because it makes me happy :D
Why not join in with the Game Challenge....no real rules...just follow the theme, oh and obviously, it has to be a never before blogged project.
Enjoy :D XXX
