Be Kind to Planet Earth

Image may contain: text
Welcome to the unveiling of my first project of this amazing year long collaboration.  For January we are inspired by 'Planet Earth, We Are All Connected, Ecosystems'.  I focused on Planet Earth.  Our planet must be cared for and we must be kind to it or our future generations will not experience the goodness of what the earth has to offer.

I created a canvas that focuses on the earth.


My 6x6 canvas is painted with Dina Wakeley paints.


The earth is cut from recycled cardboard with a Tim Holtz die.  I used  Dina Wakeley stencil on the water layer of the earth for some texture.


The background is painted and stenciled to created layers.  I drew and then painted the leaves, they are outlined with a stabilo pencil.


The raindrops are rainy day confetti from Um Wow Studio.  I cut the cloud from a Tim Holtz die and hand stamped the words.


The arrows are arrow confetti from Um Wow Studio.  The wings are a Dina Wakely stamp.


While I was creating this canvas my thoughts were of sustainability and renewal.  If we are to be kind to the earth these things must always be on our mind...
