Yes, it is time for another art experiment. No I didn't turn blue this time. I do not have any scars or injuries from this attempt, lol. I heard about a product, a cleaner called CitraSolv. It is made with orange essential oil. If you spray this product, on the pages of National Geographic magazine, there is a reaction with the ink. The ink runs and you can blur the lines by tilting the page, painting or using a Q-tip to spread the ink out. I went and bought a plastic spray bottle filled it with the cleaner. It smells wonderful by the way. In my garage, I laid out paper towel and torn paper bags. I am sure you could use other things, sponges perhaps. Go HERE to see a video of this process.
No one at my house suspects this is an art product. They think it is a cleaner...sssshhh!
Can you see the bird's wing?
This one is my favorite!
Over at the Garden, I did a prompt using my manipulated art for poetry. If you are curious you can go visit! If you try this...let me know! It smells amazing and is so fun~ My daughter and her friend were so impressed they had a turn. I now need more National Georgraphic mags~
Here is my poem:
Which piece of art do you think it goes with?! I was torn by the feather one and the spirit guide.
Chasing day light
I hear nature whisper
right before the sanctuary of night falls
as I gather my blanket of blue heaven
and tuck tangled memories in
I stretch out my wings and
ready for night's flight
Lunar lights the way.
My thoughts drift
sacred vision of day's fragments
threaded with trans-formative thread arrive
pinnacles of scattered thoughts swirl
revealing crown jewels of the day
sun bleached in the horizon's darkness
pathway transformed as tiny white pearls cluster
their whiteness outlines the Milky Way
spirit guide takes my hand
we walk though my day's twisted truths
storm enters corners of my mind
spirit tries to sweep them
some cobwebs remain
an reminder like
an Eagle feather
Ancestors reach out
and guide us
to hear the stirrings
through the wind,
and Mother Nature's
follow heart's True north
realign your course
by the journey of night stars
and embrace your day~
