AEDM 2011: Day 16 What is your greatest wish?

For Art Every Day Month I show each day what I created the day before. This is my working table on November 15th. Why so many materials? Because I was on an experimental mood.
I chose this page from October´s issue of Oh La La. A Black & white ad.
Things I learnt:
* oil pastel blenders don´t work well on glossy paper. They somehow turn the pastels into a paste. A grey paste at that.
* watercolour pencils don´t colour on glossy magazine paper.
* water for pan watercolours make little pools, as the surface of a raincoat under the rain, of coloured water on the paper.
So I went for a mad alien colouring. Bold, linear. She doesn´t have Hepatitis. I was arty. :D

Today Jamie asks "What is your greatest wish?" Want to share? Go to Jamie´s original post and comment or link.
My greatest wish ...
My first thought was the girls I wanted to visit (I´m already going over our finances and air tickets fares ;) ) but somehow that felt like a "used" wish. As if I needed a brand new sparkling one. What about wishing for wildly creative pieces of art? Or being a popular blogger? Or maybe something for others like World Peace or my kids passing all their final exams?

I have 90 posts about wishcasting. Some of those wishes have already come true. Some have been discarded beacuse I have moved on or changed my mind. Some are still active in a smaller or bigger scale.

My greatest wish is to keep wishing! To gather with the Wednesday Wishcasting tribe on line, to share and cheer, to whisper wishes, to shout them from the roof tops, to encourage others to wish. Go for it darling!

And of course the words "big wish, little wish" reminded me of ...

A great wish - to keep wishing! I have found Wishcasting to be revolutionary in my life, and look forward to reaching the one year milestone, so that I can look back and read a year of wishes!

As yo wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

I LOVE it! A beautiful wish indeed.
You experimentation looks great--I like using a lot of magazine images in my journaling too and still haven't found a great way to actually color on top of them.

However, if you modg podg colored tissue paper over them it can have a really interesting effect. We'll keep trying! Let me know if you have a break through! :)

As Paula wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

I actually like the textural effect on the magazine page...nice colours too. We learn a lot by experimenting. I wonder if a light spray of fixative or matte sealer on the magazine page would have helped tone down the glossy surface? You can get clear gesso but I think it may have caused the page to ripple.

Happy creating,
Serena xo
