Amazingly I was able to combine two of my favorite challenges - APR (artists playroom) and IA (inspiration avenue). Jenn (APR) challenged us to illustrate a word. I mulled all week on what word and how I'd illustrate it...summer, sunshine - nope, been there, done that. Peace, Love, Happy - nope, no illustration inspiration. Then I checked on IA and found their challenge is "if you could be anywhere". W-E-L-L...... I considered my first choices: home, w/ Dan, tropical beach - nope. Then, it popped into my brain.
If I could be anywhere (with Dan), we'd be on a Baltic cruise....we've wanted to go for several years and keep planning it and then having to postpone (they're kind of pricey). So, my simplistic illustration of a word is BALTIC!
I used my spritz color wash colors to evoke the feeling of the Baltic sea (though I imagine it's a darker blue rather than the bright teal of the Caribbean) and then tangled my letters. Join us aboard ship anyone?
