Abstract Art

The project at Wanderlust for week 10 didn't really gel with me, but I decided to have a go anyway as it is always possible to learn. I ended up with this abstract piece. I'm not sure whether I like it not! What do you think?

Silence is Golden

Last week at Wanderlust Kasia encouraged us to use one of the backgrounds we made in week 5 (see my post on 14th February). This page used the background with the Distress Inks, and then I added painted marks and collage.

Trying to Draw!

I'm not entirely sure why, but I decided to have a go at drawing a self-portrait. There are lots of things wrong with it, the eyes aren't quite right, my chin is too long, but overall I am pretty pleased with it. I must keep on practising, though!

Using Nature as Inspiration

Clair Bremner, was the guest artist at Wanderlust a couple of weeks ago. She uses nature as inspiration for her abstract pieces of art.  I followed her inspiration, but used acrylic pens rather than acrylic paints. Here is my finished piece.


I think I will try another one at some point, but using paints next time.

A Tag

I made this tag using PaperArtsy Lynne Perella stamps. I stamped one stamp several times in different places on the tag and then coloured them with Brushos & water-soluble oil pastels. I then stamped the other images onto plain manilla card stock, cut them out and stuck them onto the tag.

Life

In case you can't read them, the words on this page say 'living through the mish mash of life'. I'm not sure I like it as a page, but it sums up how life can sometimes be.

Self Portrait ...

For this page I made a collage background and then doctored a black and white photograph of myself for the focal point. It's different!

The Adventure Begins!

This journal page started with leftover paint from other pages. I then built up some layers, drew the face and added the stamping.

Sapphire Jubilee

The guest artist at Wanderlust for week six was Amanda Grace. This is the page I created using her lesson as inspiration. The image transfer (a picture of Clare Foy as the Queen) was made using packing tape, so apologies for the shine!

Backgrounds

The task at Wanderlust last week was to create some backgrounds for pages in the weeks to come. I created a variety.

A double-sided spread using Brushos.

Two separate pages, one with stamping, one with acrylic paint.

Distress Inks on the left-hand side and more stamping on the right-hand side.

Last but not least, just masking tape.
