In the past couple of weeks I have been re-creating some pieces
for my family scrapbook. I rashly gave some pages
away last year, so have been redoing them from
photo. Here I have a mixed media 8x8" piece using
a substrate of partly peeled, painted, stamped
and collaged cardboard. The photo is Erika, and I don't
know why she looks rather green here, as it is
sepia - possibly just the light reflecting on the glass. I
sewed all the layers together. The fountain pen
has been stamped, fussy cut and given a coat
of glossy accents.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva
and Kristin, to Art Journal Journey, Gill' s theme of
grunge and elegance, and to Creative Artiste Mixed Media.
I discovered this 'street art' from young artists on my
way to the clinic:
And here are some more photos of the exhibition in
the old gasometer in Oberhausen (Ruhr Valley)
Here's my friend Miss N adding to the photos:
More photos to follow!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
