It's time for Artsy Fartsy Friendly Fun with Carolyn! Yes, it has been 4 weeks. I was traveling in the last two weeks and wasn't able to keep my Artsy Fartsy committment last time. Missed it so much! If you missed our last Artsy Fartsy Challenges you can click on the label on the side bar.
So what was our challenge this time??
- Tissue Paper
- Non-Traditional Holiday Colors
- A Santa
This one came pretty fast to me. I had a royalty free image of Santa I was dying to use so today was the day! I started with a print I had made on my Gelli Plate--I seem to be saying that alot lately :) Seriously, if you don't have one you might want to consider a last minute call to Santa! Please don't tell Santa--but I sort of sneaked and used my new 12" x 14". So Gelli Arts if you get a call from a guy saying he thinks he got a defective one just say that you test them before you send them out--okay?????
I then added my image of Santa I copied with regular printer paper with Matt Medium. For some reason I don't like what it looks like when I just add images to my work. I like when other's do it, but some reason when I do it...it just looks wrong to me.
Tissue paper....I had an idea but it just didn't seem right so I'll save that for another day. A border--yes a border!!! No hard techniques here. Just rip and glue with Matt Medium. Note the non-tradtional color! Now how to make it my own.
Santa got a new suit (in a non-traditional color I might add) and with some more fun painting and lettering it was done! So, so FUN!!!!!!
Now it's time to go see what Carolyn did!
Carolyn and I are also participating in another event this week:
