For this piece, I cut this page out of an old Broadman Hymnal that my grandmother gave me when I was around twelve years old.
A really long time ago.
The Old Rugged Cross is a song that has meant a lot to me over the years.
It is also one of the songs we used at my father’s funeral.
I began by tangling the stacks,
making them touch as per the description,
and leaving words in between.
I went through and boxed the phrases in micron,
then highlighted them with pan pastels.
Deciding which phrases to use – keeping a consistent thought running –
was really the hard part for this page.
The rest was fun and games.
Super easy to do and I really like the way it turned out.
