Hello Everyone. Beautiful day here but I will be resting instead of walking as we went on the train yesterday to see family we haven't seen for years and it was a really good day out but tiring. I hope you all had a great day and thank you for calling in.
I have put three challenges on this post as they are blogs where I always enter the challenges but please don't think you have to comment on all of them though I know a lot of you that pop into Jumbled Crafts also enter these challenges as well.
First is my entry for the The Craft Barn where the quote/lyric words this time ART and ROAD. I couldn't find a quote with both of the words this time so I chose ART.
I do love Degas's painting of dancers-a lot of ballet but these are Russian dancers in a field of corn My quote is by Degas--well maybe it is?
The page is from an old book and it is sprayed with various colours then embossed with a Tim Holtz stencil. I added words that I thought this painting made me think about.
Tag Along this week has the theme gypsy
This is another branch of art I really love with the bright colours. I also love tattoo art and I copied this face from a tattoo design though the original looks a lot prettier than mine. I made the background from a picture of a gypsy and a caravan. The flower was one of three on a hairband I bought at Poundland.
Now for Wicked Wednesday where they ask for ATCs each week and nice if they have a wicked twist somewhere. This week the theme is leprechaun
This one I found seems happy to have bagged the pot of gold I did some work in PSP to add a bit more character and the tape in the corners. Next I printed it onto gloss photo paper and made sure there was lots of black ink on the print. Then I added texture to the black with a debit card and finger prints. The gold peel-offs covered up some of the bad smudges :(
Have a lovely day all
