Sunset @ the Wee Cottage ~ APR #34

It was especially nice that Jenn chose Sunset as the theme for this week's Artist's Play Room. MayBE BEcause the time changed, or perhaps BEcause I am feeling better about myself going to sleep AFTER the sun has set. All summer I felt silly going to sleep while it was still light out.

Anyway, it was perfect since it gave me a good reason to get messy in my matte medium and up to my elbows painting with paper. I even painted a bit with paint, but all that's moot Now. What is forever amazing to me is my love of layering and building and seeing whole layers disappear yet still have a presence.

A good deal of my fun was using a bunch of the milk carton papers I've been painting. I read about this in  Somerset Studio Volume 16 Issue 4 July/August 2012. I'm always looking for new things to upcycle and this milk carton paper is my latest find. Who knew?!

I also used up some leftover papers from my "juicy" mango APR awhile back, and generally just let loose and played. I even took some photos along the way, a different practise for me, and who knows, mayBE those photos will see another Life one day...
