I'll make the introduction short today - hot and humid, I need sleep!
For SOC the colours this week are green, green and pink. I made a mixed media piece to fit the challenge post-postage at Art Journal Journey, too. I used a postage stamp with Andy Warhol, which I digitally altered to get my colours. I printed the stamps out and collaged them onto an A3 sheet painted with gesso. I added some stamping and the quote, which is from AW himself. The black and white stamp at the bottom is one made using a stencil (Stencilry.org) and digitally altered to make the SOC 2015stamp.
This is the original stamp:
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is friendship.
I used Michelangelo's wonderful painting as my image as I wanted to use the quote, 'Where hands reach out in friendship, hearts are touched by joy'. I mounted the image onto scrap card and gave it a coat of Deco Art crackle varnish. I surrounded it with a frame made with Golden crackle paste, which I painted with gesso and then distressed with various shades of gold, green and black, adding some perfect pearls for more effect. I wanted to create the effect of an old plaster wall with the painting in the middle. I mounted it all onto peeled Cardboard, painted with gold chalk paint. The quote was written onto a separate mini tag.
Today we had blue skies, sunshine, and it was hot, hot, hot!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
