Technique Junkie Newsletter. The technique is called Tie Dye Circles and can be found in the April/May 2014 edition.
It's a fun little technqiue--a something different, which always appeals to me. When I created this technique piece, it reminded me of peacock feathers. Naturally, I completed the card with one of my favorite peacock images from I Brake For Stamps!
I do, infact, have a bit of a love/hate relationship with birds. On most days, they completely creep me out--ya, know....in the everyday kind of living-find-them-dead-outside-my-windows, kinda way. Yet, I am repeatedly drawn to bird images when I stamp, wall decorations, etc. It's odd. I do love to see peacocks and pheasents--so gorgeous and the colors!
For the last seven years or so, I've been particularly fond of the peacock. One day, shortly after moving to a new town, I was feeling sad and disconnected. The weather was grey, cold, threatening rain or snow. I traveled a back road to pick my kiddos up from school. On the way, this afternoon, I was having a bit of pity party and wondering why I had been stuck in the cold, godforsaken place. I glanced out the window and there, in full bloom, on the side of the road was a peacock. Even on the grey day, the vivid colors of his feathers stood out. I took it as a sign that life would get better, I would get better and beauty would come.....it did :)
