29 Faces

My last face for the '29 Faces' project, plus another to make it up to 29. I have a feeling, though, that they won't be my last. Watch this space!

Art Journal Caravan - week 6

One of the prompts for week 6 was to use a piece by Picasso as inspiration. Using the 'Portrait of Marie-Thérèse' as my inspiration, I took one of my own drawings as my starting point and digitally manipulated it to become more Picasso like. Let me know what you think. The quote is also by Picasso.

This is my original drawing.

This background for this journal page was created using texture paste, acrylic paint, Treasure Gold. I then added segments of a journal page I had created previously and printed onto photo paper.

It's not who you are...

... that holds you back. It's who you think you are not.

This page was created using layers of paint, collage and texture paste.

Today, I decided to draw a man. It is based on one a Modigliani painting of Jean Cocteau.

Mail Art

I created this mail art for my sister. It was a cardboard envelope upon which I painted, stamped and drew. The strips of paper come from a print I made using my Gelli Plate.

Day 4

Welcome to the Mad House!

Here are two digital pieces I created recently. You can tell that I wasn't feeling too good when I made the first one! I'm better now.

29 Faces

Here's my second face for 29 Faces (click here to go to the website).  I don't like her as much as the one I created yesterday, but I'm quite please with the proportions.

Wall Plaque

This started out as a 6 x 6 inch plain piece of wood. I covered it in white gesso and then added the various colours of acrylic paint. I added the paint by stamping it onto the wood using an acrylic block, a technique I picked up from Wendy Vecchi. I then added the red stripes of acrylic paint using the edge of an old credit card. I stamped the butterflies quotes and swirls to finish it.

29 Faces

I have decided to join the 29 Faces challenge. I'm not sure I'll be able to keep up, but I won't know unless I try. So here is my first one.
