I’m a huge fan of Ronda for a long time and when I was finally able to meet her for the funniest dinner ever last CHA it was as awesome as I expected.
First I pump up the music. I love music in the background. It’s got to have a good beat too. I mostly listen to alternative rock. There is usually a chai tea latte involved too, from Starbucks preferably. If I am scrapping I start with my photos and a story to tell. I need that emotional attachment. If I am starting with altered art/canvases…its color. It’s all about the color. And then I see where it leads me.
2. Do you ever create hidden meanings or messages in your work?
In the “memories of you” art journal page.. this about me missing my husband who is living in Qatar at the moment. the memories encased in waxed…it’s like time is standing still, the key (he is the one who unlocks me & sees me completely for who I am), me in the flower encased in wax but apart from the title…separated.
Taste the Rainbow….a bag of skittles. And not the whimpy bag, we’re talking the at least the 1 lb if not a bit bigger.
4. What is your favorite creation?
First is my Colors layout. I love the rainbow ordered colors on the page with all the bits & baubles on it…paint, mists, ribbon, buttons…oh my.
It’s mostly mists & gesso mixed together with quotes revolving around the word Accept. I love getting messing & tucking things into layers.
5. What is your biggest creative success so far and why?
I have recently announced a book deal with F&W media. I am beyond honored & thrilled to create this book. It is a technique book that reflects who I am as a mixed media artist. I have a tentative publishing date of May 2012.
Thank you so much Ronda :)
