I'm very honoured to be a guest designer for the current TIME OUT Challenge~Inspired By Words. The quote to spark our creativity is:
“Paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than its feathers.”
Lots of possibilities here for images and/or techniques.
Sooooo....before we go any further, I have a confession: I have bird terror. Yes, full on screaming-like-a-school girl whenever one comes close to me (close being defined by oh...half a block away). No idea where this phobia finds its roots; perhaps the bygone days of gathering eggs with my grandma, amidst the clucking, pecking and feather-flapping of the chickens. Or it could be The Birds movie, which we watched, in school, when I was in Grade 5. Seriously! Or maybe it's just me (I have an array of odd phobias...like big flags and huge tents, to name just a few. Oh, and seeing or even thinking about the hull of boats/ships...a 'depth' thing, I reckon...shiver).
All that to say: my focus is on *feathers*.
I'm featuring my Concord and 9th's Give Thanks set, which is filled with possibility, versatility and a whole LOT of pretty!
Please drop by the TIME OUT challenge blog and check out the inspiration from the fabulous design team. THANK YOU so much for inviting me to play alongside you in this challenge!
Looking forward to seeing your takes on this quote; I'm sure the variety will be fabulous!
