Happy New Year!


Today I made a collage incorporating many positive words and sentiments to begin the new year with. I then painted over in acrylic paints to create a tiffany style design which I will use for felt making in the future.

That looks like a great idea and very powerful as a positive focus for the year.

Happy New Year, Jasmine, may your 2010 be full of life and light!

How wonderful, I love that you honored the new year with art. I feel a wee bit behind in doing something like this. But I can feel something bubbling to the surface. Wishing you a wonderful 2010!

That is an awesome idea Jasmine. I may make my own word board of inspiration!

I can see the stained glass, for sure. I'm seeing a lot of light-themed posts around.

Love that you painted over your own personal collage of meaning...cool! I would like to wet felt more but at the moment neddlefelting and sculpture seem to be dominant. I think felting aceo's for the awareness show would be a great idea- are you interested in making a couple for the show. if so get back to me in blogland.

Happy Nwe Flet Year. Such a good way to start the year - inspiring and energic! Maybe I have to make this my challenge, because the beginning of a new year makes me always a bit slow....

I love the rich and textured layering you've created with the painting over the collage Jasmine. Though it's hidden to the eye, the message and energy of the words comes through, creating a strong foundation for your imagery!
