ARTastic FEB 2016 - Butterfly & Bird Cards:
Hi there! Time for our new ARTastic challenge!
This amazing piece is your inspiration for this month:
It's by Cathy McClelland & this month's CRITERIA is PAINT!
Luckily, I had some of those backgrounds I'd used paint on with a
few stencils - left over paint from other projects slapped onto white cardstock.
Bottom left is what I started with. I've heat embossed a little bird
on - it's hard to see! On the right is what happened when I added clear
gesso, then followed it with Gelatos and lots of misting of water &
smudging with my fingers!!!
I tried to keep with the colours of the inspiration pic.
For this one you can see I've 'cleaned up' the bird with a 'baby wipe' then
outlined it...added some stamping.
The bird is a 'nod' to the art inspiration
picture, which holds 'hidden' birds. I wanted to merge with the background,
like the picture!
For the 2nd one I used a butterfly:
There is sooo much you can do with 'paint' and
Cathy McClelland's picture.
We'd love to see your interpretation
over at ARTastic this month!Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
