Imagine if...

we chose obedience over desire.

I am entering this wall hanging into two challenges. 
The first one is over at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog.

The challenge this month is to use the colour palette shown on the mood board.

I have used predominately Gelatos in these colours: Iced Chai, Chocolate, Earl Grey, Squid Ink, Watermelon, Green Tea and Pistachio. I have also used some flesh tones.

I have used Gelatos, coloured pencils, PaperArtsy Infusions The Sage (background tree foliage), gauze (tree trunk), fabric, lace, ribbon and fibres (hair). My base is a home made canvas.

I printed Genesis chapter 3 onto tissue paper and collaged it to my background. No better foundation to build an art work on. I have also printed the words "life" and "knowledge of good and evil" in a small font on regular copy paper for the apples. (I have a water proof ink in my printer)

I have carved the words "Imagine if..." out of the tree trunk before colouring and backing it with another piece of canvas.

The forearm, branch and apples are added separately to add dimension.

The second part of the quote I have hand written using a black gel pen.

I have stenciled some leaves in the background.

The hair is very textured and dimensional.

Thank you for taking time to check out my art work, I hope you like it.
