At last......My Interpretation of Pop Art

The latest The Craft -Room Challenge (20TH Century); and the Q and L challenge (Art and or Road) at The Craft Barn  had me coming  up with so many ideas.... I had to plan, develop and create on one - if only time wasn't always an issue :)

As a child of the 60's I loved comic books and I think POP ART is truly representative of the 60's, especially Andy Warhol. The inclusion of advertisements in "art", bubble graphics, to the iconic "Marilyn Diptych" (originally on silk), which has seen so many later interpretations I decided to reproduce my own. Not having a Marilyn Munroe stamp I chose a new to me stamp by the Stamp Attic, ATC sized card, primary coloured paints and inks, mounted the ATC's into an art journal did some hand doodling, found a quote from A.Warhol and mounted  tada...........

 
I enjoyed taking the journal into the warm sun - shame about the shadow, so back indoors.......




 The quote is a tad small so an individual page


The quote is
 I am also submitting this to Brown Sugar whose theme is paper piecing - many of the faces are.
Thanks for stopping by :)

WOW you truly have re-created something from the '60s here and brilliantly channelled Andy Warhol. This is worth waiting for and I'm so glad you have made these pages. Thank you for making and sharing with us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO

This was the first I've had time to visit the CB challenge this time, so was delighted to see this true work of art. Yep, I love it. And I love the Andy Warhol quote, too. I've heard it before, and felt it was made for me when I struggled to make anything. You did a beautiful job with that spread.
