Been busy doing ANOTHER art work that I cant show yet(makes my head hurt lol), so I needed to make something just for me.
I realised I hadn't tried out the technique from One Little Book Club, where we had looked at Mary Beth's "Flavour for Mixed Media", and this is the piece I created.
"Handle with Care"
The book is about using different stuff to create texture in your work. I decided to work on foam board, so that it didn't get too heavy, and chose a photo I printed off years ago but never used.
I made some texture by pressing a bottle top into the foam base, then gesso and a piece of twine
Next I tore up some flowery backing paper...
and then dabbed paint on with a sponge (i like dabbing with sponge, I do it a lot)
I had already fancy cut the figures from the photo, so I glued it in position, before painting more detail over the top(see first pic), using the flowers on the background paper as inspiration.
So this is my "Piece a week" that I can share for now lol
Enjoy :D XXX
