The lovely Darcy is hosting a calendar challenge over on her blog HERE
This month the challenge was:
And this is how it started out:
Once dry I tried to rub away the wax and this is where is all went wrong....the wax wouldn't come off! So I rubbed some more and then the paint started coming off....you can kinda see some vague square shapes in the sky - if you look really closely ha ha!
Anyway I decided to just continue regardless.....
I added some lines with a card using Slate fresco as I thought it closely matched the colour of the Buddha. Then attempted to add some shading around the head with a charcoal pencil.....this then stared making the paint scratch off so I stopped that and just squiggled around it with a fude ball pen instead.
I didn't have a quote in mind when I started out but as it all went a bit wrong I decided this phrase was very appropriate!
I cut all the letters out and arranged them on the page:
When nothing goes right.....go left.
Seemed to fit well with how I was feeling ;-)
A few squiggles around each letter and I decided to leave it there before anything else went wrong!
Roll on April so I can turn this page over and start afresh!!
