aceo, beach rocks

beach rocks 2, collage drawing
beach rocks II aceo

Back in March, we took a ferry from Whidbey Island to another island and arrived at Port Townsend. We walked for miles and found many little surprises along the way. One of those were these stacked beach rocks which I blogged about in March.

This aceo art card, Beach Rocks II, is inspired from the photo I took. I used monoprinted papers for the background, pencil and conte crayon for the rocks, and lastly micron pen for the word "harmony".

I finished my zine this past week and have been taking breaks and trying to use my non-dominant hand more to let my drawing hand repair. Even my back and left arm wanted to join the aching muscles party. I was so focused on that project for several weeks that I didn't realise my body was breaking down from the repetitive actions of drawing and writing.

Has that ever happened to you? You get so wrapped up in a project and it's only until you have finished it that you feel how physically sore you are?

The bright side is that I feel a sense of harmony now.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I'll be out hiking today and will go blog hopping on Monday:)

joining sunday sketches.

I don't know what an ACEO is, but I love it. The vibrancy of the red/ orange background truly makes the opaque colored rocks pop. Blessings!

GORGEOUS this aceo art card, Juana... I love the juicy, citrusy colors! Hooray--you've finished your zine! Oh, and I know what you mean about the pain...I create hard, and often am near collapse sometimes after an intense creative session! ;o) Lovely to catch up with you after a brief hiatus! Happy Weekend ((HUGS))
