And, here's my take on the sketch, it took me about 3 days to finish this. I didn't really work on it the whole time but I did experiment on my paint dabber, mists, chalk, Stickles, crackle paint. I know that it's not really much but my paints were very happy that they were opened and they get to breathe fresh air.
I am still not sure if mixed media is for me coz it made me wash my hands a lot of times that the natural oil is probably gone by now. The OC in me doesn't like my hands getting paint, Stickles, etc. Duhhh... It was fun though and I really hope that I will.
Btw, the upper right hand?! Do you see the key there? Pardon me, but I got carried away with mixed media that you couldn't really see the image of the key anymore. Hehe. But, it's a key that I cut free hand. I love that key though you can't see it. LOL!
For my birthday gift, I gave myself the gift of REST as a present. I've been working overtime most days lately that I just want to do nothing for a change. But then, it's hard to break habit for a day, I still checked my emails at work and still logged on today to solve one issue. But, promise, that was the only one. *wink*
