This piece is about 14 x 20, I used sheets Reggie
had available for us which showed cosmic formations
which I felt worked with my overall vision for the
piece. This was placed on waxed Arches 140# cold
press provided by Reggie.
I first did the quote using Neugebauer caps, the
same height and then enlarged or reduced them using
a copier. I played around with the layout until I
was satisfied with it and copied it on a card stock
paper and cut out some of the letter forms.
I really like this quote! I need to be reminded of
I used the Charles Mackintosh rose as my
inspiration for the cut out design which lead to a unique ‘problem’
since it left me with a large network of interconnected pieces that
made it hard to spread it out. The swirl I added didn’t help either
but it does give the piece energy. After some tweaking and
incorporating other papers it worked out quite well. |
After fitting the pieces together I used a hot foil pen to give the
piece sparkle, like stars in the sky.
It was a fun piece to do, expanding on the possibilities.
