Things to come. Things to look forward to. Pointing to the future, not today. Looking ahead to better days by way of the arrow. Pointing us towards better. The ATC prompt was arrow and I thought the words to be fitting.
I began with my collage drawer of leftovers and pulled some pieces together. And I brought out every arrow I could find.
I used the pansy color in the Dyestress Ink line to color the edges of the strips I thought I would use. The piece I chose for the ATC base was really fun with all the look of texture it already had built right into it.
My process was a simple one. Add one strip at a time.
And add some black Archival ink on those edges. You will notice here that the base has both pansy and black ink along its sides.
And I layered strips, building some depth into my ATC.
Remembrance of things to come, a hopeful insight in today’s world. I was happy I found so many cool arrows to use.
So I tried to trim the sides evenly. Better, not perfect. But I like the way the ATC turned out. And the best part? I get to keep it!
