My ARTistic Life, she wrote: Get Inspired by the Power of 3! Make a piece of art that has 3 of something in it. You do not need to use ARTchix Studio products for Helga's artistic challenges, but i often do. For my challenge piece i used an image from Snowflake Kisses that i had reprinted onto vellum (bottom left) and 2 Transparency images from the Starry Night sheet. I also chose 3 different pieces of text from the Tell me more collage sheet. You can find all of these in the ARTchix Studio Shop!
I started by gathering the 3 images that i wanted to use, and then based on their "moon" theme, i looked for a background. I had a leftover piece of an old magazine page from creating a 'universe collage' a few months ago which i thought would be perfect. I glued that starry background piece to a watercolor postcard and played around with the placement of the women/moon images. Once satisfied with where i thought they looked best, i glued them down to the background paper with my mini xyron. Then i got out my circle template (Helga's gotten me into circles!) and used both a white opaque marker and a silver glitter marker to emphasize the "moons" and the power of 3! I also wanted 3 sets of words, and chose 3 different ones from one of Helga's word sheets (i use these sheets all the time) to create kind of a found poem: be in a dream, far far away, a deep dream of peace. Later, when i took the dogs out before bed, i looked up and saw the moon and gasped! i tried to capture a bit of what it looked like for me in florida; hope you enjoy! lenna young andrews - January 26, 2010
