Great Power

 I am always amazed with color and light, it is just magic.  I play with it a lot and read about it constantly.  I did this hand for a digi page, I have been totally consumed in my studio and my art journaling has taken a far back seat.  We are visiting Ancient Greece this month at the AJC and Apollo is one of my favorite gods. I wanted to do a page with him casting the sun from the ocean up to the sky, digi page is below.  As I was doing the page I thought that it would also do a great Halloween card and after posting my digi page started playing.  I used The Crafter's Worshop "Trees" stencil colored with Dylusion Inks and Pan Pastels.  Darkened up the hand with copics and pan pastels and added a word block for the card, as much as I love Halloween, I am back on track this weekend with the essentials that have to be done.
This is the digi page done with the hand, the background is a gelli pull and swirls at the base of the hand are a symbol for Apollo's chariot, although it is the same hand it looks so much different in this.  Have a safe and fun weekend, hugs
