ARTastic Challenges this month has a wonderful inspirational artwork and mood board to tantalise your creativity.
For my take on this I decided to start a mini album, with the first page using the colours from the mood board. The photo is quite an old one so it's showing a bit of wear and tear.
The canvas page was painted with acrylic paints and stamped with a slightly deeper shade of dusky pink. the photo ( me, aged 2) was mounted onto a frame of pearlised pink paper. The edges were pinpricked with a scallop design. This didn't take as long as you would have expected because I have some Pergamano tools which made it a lot quicker. I chain stitched some vines on the edges with variegated pink embroidery thread and then added the lace and button flowers.
Cut out leaves from a wall paper sample were decorated with Liquid Pearls and tucked behind some material roses.
Additional lace was tucked under the photo mat and chipboard butterflies, also painted and decorated with Liquid pearls, were added.
The vellum quote was also pinpricked around and the canvas page mounted to black cardstock to give some extra support and stability. I added Liquid Pearls in flourishes and dots around this to complete the page.
As you can see from the gorgeous artwork by Josh Miels, we had the opportunity work with beautiful colours.
Pop on over to artastic and check out what the rest of the team has done with this. We'd love to see your art work here.
