Time is flying by again - it moves more quickly
than I can!
For Art Journal Journey, Erika's lovely theme of 'Tell me a story', and for Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin, I have a
hybrid piece made from 2 large tags I made this week.
I scanned the tags into my computer, and with some digital magic
I put them into two of my heads and grunged them up a bit.
I placed them on a background made from another collaged
tag made this week which I will show another day. I changed the
colors to black and white in one of them and
added the sentiment:
For my mixed media pieces I used 10" kraft tags. First they were painted with olive and blue metallic paints, then stenciled using some new stencils Annette sent me for Christmas - thanks so much! After they were dry I used my
to collage them with all the UFOs flying about, and then used more stencils to draw the figures. To finish them off I added some white stenciling and some dotted highlights on the figures. I had fun making these, I haven't been able to do much lately as my fingers are not being very cooperative.
As I have used my new stencils I am also linking
the tags to Simon Monday challenge
and to More mixed media
These were the backgrounds before I pasted everything onto
Recently I visited The Kunsthalle art museum
in Düsseldorf. I have a season-ticket which gets me into all
museums without having to pay, but I would have
been very disappointed if I had paid 18€ to view this
'wool and water' exhibition:
And this exhibit really takes the biscuit -
this is not my idea of art:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
