It’s been a while since I posted anything. Life and work somehow got in the way… I’ve gone up in time at work, and it’s a challenge to adjust to have less time to create.
I decided to join the Mixed Media Place’s Creative Gym this month and their exercise #5. The rules for this one is: combine black backround + all the colors of the rainbow.
My first try was a black background and layering loads of colours with different stencils… It didn’t work for me, so paint over with fresh black acrylic and start over. This gave me a more textured surface to work on, and that’s always a plus, right?
So, here’s my entry. I used a photo of my son from last year, he’s on his way to a party and having his smart outfit, and crooked smile, on. He loves orange, and pretty much all bright colours. I’ve used a couple of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays, sequines, Finnabair’s beads, and different decorative elements as cutouts and paperclips. The golden stars I just cutout from gold foil paper.
Really like how this exercise turned out. Hope you like it too.
