I loved the sketch but I struggled with the theme, but then it came to me and this is what I came up with ...
Here's a couple close ups of the chippie, it's a little hard to see in the photos but I've used Jo Sonja's Crackle Medium then I brushed Silks Acrylic Glaze (Key Lime) over it. For the title I've painted it white using an Adirondak dabber then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist "Rum Raisin". I love the effect I ended up with, where the paint layer was thinner the Glimmer Mist soaked through more and gave the darker patches.
Like I said before, I struggled with the theme, until I heard a song by Avicii entitled "Addicted to You", when I looked up the words it just clicked ... they were perfect!
For the journalling I've used the first verse and chorus, it's a bit hard to see the words in the photo but they say:
"I don't know just how it happened, I let down my guard ...
Swore I'd never fall in love again but I fell hard.
Guess I should have seen it coming, caught me by surprise...
I wasn't looking where I was going, I fell into your eyes.
You came into my world like a cool and cleansing grace.
Before I knew what hit me baby you were flowing through my veins ...
I'm addicted to you! Hooked on your love,
like a powerful drug, I can't get enough of,
Lost in your eyes, drowning in blue
Outta control, what can I do?
I'm addicted to you!"
I was married at 18, and when I left my ex husband after 17 years of marriage I was determined to be single and travel the world, another relationship, let alone marriage was the last thing on my mind .... but right at the time my marriage ended I happened to come into contact with an old school friend I hadn't had any contact with for about 17 years ..... happily plans change, Jonno & I were married last November .... my lifelong friend to continue my life's journey with.
So, there's the story behind my inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read it.
Until next time,
