I hope everyone has had a joyful Christmas and I wish you all a lovely and healthy 2014! I hope we can share a lot of new inspirations and make the world a bit more beautiful with the lovely designs of Chocolate Baroque.
I have worked with the new beautiful stamp designs of the Buddha's! The sheets are called 'Serenity' and 'Tranquility'. They are just up to my street as I love Buddha's. I was inspired by stone and wood images of Buddha's so here is my interpretation.......... I've used the 'Serenity'sheet here.
The first one is the 'stone' version made on grey Canson paper and cool shades of Pan Pastel and pencils. On the background I've used the Abstract elements, the craqueled stamp of the Echoes of Italy and one of the ornaments of the Indian stamps because they are such a good match with these Buddha's.
The quote is from the Words of Inspiration........
Here you can see the lovely shine of the metallic Pan Pastel added over an Indian ornament.
The 2nd one is the 'wood' version made with warm shades and gold accents. I've used also the Abstract Fragments , the Textured fragments and the Indian stamps in the background. Also made the base with Pan Pastels on brown Canson paper and added accents with pencils afterwards.
the rich shine of the metallic bronze Pan Pastel......
I hope I gave you some ' serenity and tranquility' after these festive days and also some inspiration with these gorgeous stamps! Just one more day to go in 2013 and than up to the next year, 2014!
See you next year,
