I was reading an article in the current Somerset Studios and thought I'd try creating something similar with a black background and ephemera. The ephemera comes from CollageVisions. The main image I have had for a bit, can't recall where it's from. I stamped on tracing paper with a script stamp using sepia ink and attached it with Golden's fluid medium. Tracing paper acts just like vellum and rolls and crinkles. I tried a second piece using the glue stick and had better luck with it. So, here's the end result...The Bannerman Boys.
I love the challenges at Take a Word! And I am absolutely tickled pink to be the guest artist this week with my 4x4 about chocolate. Now, who doesn't love chocolate, either milk or dark? So, I can't wait to see the wonderful art that will be created. And by the way, I'm sure you know that chocolate is perfectly acceptable to eat...after all, it is a vegetable! And Happy Mother's Day to you, too, I hope you got a little bit of chocolate today!
Talk about a great challenge..."exposed". Where do you go with that? You go with your muse. I googled an image of the moon. I had this great image of a young woman from Picture Palace. So, I stamped and embossed music notes, writing and a scroll stamp. I sprayed the water with Tattered Angels and added a little patina stickles. "Her dreams were exposed by the light of the moon". Hope you like this one!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
