ARTastic challenge ~ APRIL 2016: Lotsa Alphas involved!
Hey there, scrappy mates! It's reveal time at ARTastic!
This month's Criteria is TYPOGRAPHY....so think
alphas, stencilling, patterned paper newsprint etc....
I got out a pile of those bits you get left over when you die cut.
I've had them for 3 years! Time to use 'em up!
Also, you need to use our art picture by Josh Miels as inpsiration:
I went with the alphas on the bg. Mine are random,
but I wanted sooo much to get a similar look. And it worked OK!
Here's my process:
Using black card stock, I applied the die cut alphas with multi-medium [matte].
Then brused on black gesso:
Next, I applied white gesso with a sponge, & used a baby wipe to remove some
as I went so I got the right amount of coverage:
YAY! Then the rest came together really easily. I used
a portrait...well, the 3 step grand kids school photo, in keeping with
the art picture inspiration!
I fussy cut their photo, as it had bright green in the background....
I didn't do much else in the way of embellishments as
the page didn't seem to need it:)
What sort of TYPOGRAPHY can you see working for you with this
amazing Miel's painting??
Hoping you can join in with us this month at ARTastic.
Happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
