Paper Artsy Inspired - Ellen Vargo

Ellen Vargo showed how she created a journal page in 3 great videos which you can see here.

I followed within the confines of my crafting goodies, I used acrylic paints, the smaller leaf from Lin Brown ELB01 plate of stamps. Artistic Stampers Punk Plaid Large stamp. I used scraps from another project as a frame rather than the map and a different quote. The result is below....

                                                              Thanks to Ellen, and Pare Artsy - I had lovely fun - for future projects I will put less texture in the middle I think oh and invest in markers - all writing was done using a used pen dunked in ink :)  :)
Thanks for stopping by :)

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 :)
