I have had Kelly Rae Roberts book "Taking Flight" for about 2 years now. I love it, and look at it all the time. I pick it up, put it down, over and over, for days, then I forget about it, or subconciously put it out of my mind. I don't like to answer the questions in it, I don't like to write....never will. I like to express in the form of art. Tonight the planets aligned and I just did it., but of course had to put my own twist on it. I had to do the butterfly wings just because I love the pattern and the color. I had to add the vintage rhinestones for her necklace. And to tell you the truth, I was probably prompted to do this entire project because I just kept thinking of adding those gorgeous vintage buttons.
So I really enjoyed this and I love the transparent effect that Kelly shows in her book, I love the layering and knowing there is vintage paper underneath. Of course I am my own worst critic, and wasn't super happy with the face.....it is what it is. I also think I went to far with the markings in the background....I have a tendency of never knowing when to stop. The most important thing is that I have sparked something in me and I have many ideas for more. I hope I do them. I have been very depressed, and am trying to work through it. I am hoping this helps. This did make me happy.
I would love to know what you think. Thank you for visiting and all your comments I look forward to.
