:bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite:

Follow me
Along the road that only love can see
Rising above the fun years of the night
Into the light beyond the tears
And all the years we have wasted

Follow me
To a distant land this mountain high
Where all the music that we always kept inside will fill the sky
Singing in the silent swerve our heart is free
While the world goes on turning and turning
Turning and falling



Follow Me
Music by Kenji Kawai

Thank you my husband Keith `zerocomplex and my good friends Sam ^sphilr and Gillian *lolitaAgogo for always being so encouraging :heart:


This is the last from my series where a symbol of innocence and companionship in the form of an animal, or animals, will be featured. Here it is Perry, our Scottish Shorthair cat.


Hope you enjoy this and upcoming pieces in this series.


Thank you so much for looking :iconkissmeeplz:

i hate to sound nooby, but what exactly was the salt for? the others i can guess where they went. the crayons (had no clue they made walter soluble ones) were for all the colors... like the floor and the poppies. and the ink is for all the black stuff... now the salt... O.o;

anyways i love the piccu. =D

That's not a problem at all :heart:

I used salt only on the background. While the paint was still very wet I sprinkled both coarse and fine salt over the paper, and when it dries, it forms little tiny white "stars". Basically creates a very cool sense of texture. It's not very obvious here as the paper I worked with doesn't respond heavily to salt, however in the coffee-coloured background you can kind of see the faint white blotches.

Hope this was helpful to you!
