Let me be honest, when we were first assigned the task of making this
“stacked box” project for the Club Scrap Artist Team February Challenge, I was none too thrilled. Ahhhhh. Not being a girl that can easily walk away from a challenge, I knew something good would come of it. However, it happened at that last minute. For weeks, I considered what I’d do but the pressure of deadlines is a dear friend and she showed up on time, as usual. I knew that for me it could not simply be a paper project. I needed to incorporate my art and some painting. Light bulb: “I will paint a face.” A little nervous but not afraid. Paint and paper are very forgiving! You can cover it up, if you must. LOL!
Anyway, I began by covering the spines first and then I painted the covers. Once the boxes were pretty much complete, I stacked them neatly and sketched out my face. Once the sketch was complete, I was able to start painting each part of the face separately. My love grew as I continued to paint. “Yes, this is really happening!” I snapped a photo of the nearly completed project and shared it with my hubby later that evening. He looked and simply said, “Wow!”
Going from an idea in my head to a project that I LOVE was quite a wonderful experience. The idea in my head does not always appear in real life the same as imagined. LOL!
Challenges always bring about something wonderful!
