dlp2015 week 6

Doesn't seem like 6 weeks since I started DLP but it is. Time is a funny (funny odd, not funny haha) thing.
Here's the challenge for this week.

February Theme:  Layers You Will Love!
Art Challenge:  When Not To Stop
Journal Prompt:  "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough!" 

Layers are good, I like layers, I just tend to stop too soon, so I was determined to put a LOT of layers on this page. I didn't bother keeping track, just kept adding things as they came to mind. Paint, collage, pencil, marker, gel pen, stencil, stamp, gesso, paint on credit card edge, paint on pencil eraser, paint on finger, dots, squiggles, Xs, vines, flowers, triangles, circles, scallops.

A common question is how do you know when a page is done? I did reach a point on this one where I looked at it and felt it had reached its apex and anything more would be too much. So I stopped, and I'm happy with it. Quite happy, actually. Love the colors. Michaels had acrylics on sale so I bought 6 tubes of my faves and used four of them on this page, along with black and white. No words this time, just didn't feel like it needed any.

  1. So great! Love it! I spent all day Saturday trying to learn that exact lesson about stopping too soon. I made something that had twice as many layers as usual, and I realize I really should shoot for three times as many. I always worry that I'll wreck it, but as my wise instructor/mentor said, "F* it. You can always gesso over it!"
