The brilliant challenge over at Awfully Big Art Adventure is to alter a rock. Now that is something I just happen to have plenty of. This rock is from the Moorman River near Charlottesville, Virginia. The river bed was full of lovely flat rocks of all different sizes and colors and like seashells they look extra tempting when they are wet!
After a coat of Lumiere paint, I used Matte Gel Medium to glue a couple of my favorite papers around the image of a garden ornament we have hanging out back. The tiny seashells are recent acquisitions. While vacuuming today I noticed a pearl bead on the carpet, luckily it was not sucked up. After I had the shells glued on my rock, I knew the pearl would be the perfect finishing touch inside the jingle shell!
The word Balance really speaks to me…….it is something I continually strive for.
“Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of man’s being” ~Orison Swett Marden
And another quote; there are lots on balance in life:
“Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.” ~Barbara De Angelis
