For this card I put three different colors of paint on but because the paint and card was too wet the light blue really diluted the other two colors. Note to self go easy on the water even playing cards are fragile when wet. I decided for my flower to experiment. I printed on copy paper a photo of flowers I had taken last Summer. Then transferred the photo to canvas using Creative Medium. I don't know if it was because I used Vintage as I have no clear or what but the flower really lost the variations of color. I decided to use fabric paint over it which brought the colors out some and then gave it a puffy center. (See photo below) Because the paint made the flower stiff I was able to shape the petals. I then drew a cloud and put text in it for my sentiment.
Over the weekend I played a little bit with some String Gel which I bought on impulse. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to use my interpretation of Jackson Pollock's art. For those who don't know Jackson Pollock was a modern art pioneer. He didn't just splash paint on canvas he thought out where he wanted the drips and splashes to go. Even using a brush to help the drips go the direction he wanted them to go. He would walk around his canvas on the floor to decide if he needed to add something somewhere. To be honest I'm not a fan of most modern art but his work at least to me has a mystical quality to it.
Thank you for stopping by. Do come back. I'm hoping that soon I'll be able to post a Valentine card which is totally gorgeous. I hate having to wait but when you are guest designer it has to be posted somewhere else first. ;-)
I challenge you this year to make time to create. The more you create the more creativity builds up inside of you.
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
