7 Deadly Words - Outside of the Journal Week 2

The title of this painting is 7 Deadly Words. I don't usually do "dark" paintings, but these words seemed to cry out for a grungy canvas. I also had some grunge boards skeletons from Tim Holtz and figured that they fit perfectly. I attached the word "deadly" with 1/2" glue dots so they are raised from the canvas board.

I am actually thinking that I will hang this on the wall in my studio.  I am working very hard to eliminate these words from my talk, so I think having this in front of my face :)!! I will let you know if it works!

Outside The Journal Week 1

My first canvas for Outside The Journal, by Dina Wakley, 
It says, "art is part of the armor for my heart". Mixed media is pretty new to me so I am still trying to find "my style". This back round is from the paper that I wrap my table in. I like the way it turned out.
I can't wait to see how I progress throughout the month!
