All this made me think of "purple trees" When I was in grade 12 I had the most amazing english teacher- Mrs. Davidson. She inspired me to read and think/ dissect what I read. She once told us a story, two girls opposite in personality and nature. They knew each other as small children but didn't meet again til teenagers in grade 12. The one girl, the out of the box thinker, flamboyant one looked at the other girl, the organized straight laced one and said you told me not to paint by trees purple. I think this describes the world those who see what is and those who see what could be. Neither way right actually both are needed for a balance.
I outlined the paper blocks with charcoal then smeared with my finger. I highlighted the harlequin with gold acrylic paint just lightly brush the paint on. Outline harlequin with white gel pen. I drew on details to the tree- trunk, leaves, and roots.
Add a little more stamping, phase title, star brad and chipboard postcard edge.
