Front of Card
This was another labor of love- (*8 hours)-First everything was outlined
in copic gray pen- The Clownfish were water colored in Daniel Smith
watercolors.Anemone took forever- wanted them to be translucent
so I used several colors of twinkling H2O's(forgot glimmer
makes it difficult to take decent pictures)-
Then all the fingers were outlined in black Pitt pen.
Detailing done to fish with more Pitt pens
Back of Card
After being home for about a month I decided to get some
R& R-Was tempted to head to England,
but wasn't sure if it was proper timing. So I'm in
Australia- My co-workers have told me
how peaceful it was to scuba dive the
GREAT BARRIER REEF. And it is so relaxing~
only wish you were here-
Next time you will be here with me!
I'm so upset the "visions" persist~
Hopefully the new therapist will help.
Off to Fraser & Tiwi Islands- Plan
to buy some fabulous art!
Hoping for Peace for you soon,
Background is a print of Tiwi art work done in
gray Copic pen-light wash of white watercolor and splatter of pink
Page in Book
After spending so much time on the card I took
a shortcut on the page- The main image is of the
Barrier Reef I downloaded form Wipikedia.
Just loved all the coral and the bright blue starfish.
I added the Hawk nose Turtle and more fish
to the image. The lettering is from a
poster advertising the movie 'Australia'-
Outlined and colored with white poster paint pens.
(In honor to the Aussie actors Hugh Jackman &Nicole Kidman)
I loved that movie for the scenery (and of coarse Hugh!)-
So this why I fell in love with Australia!
