Arty Girlz weekly challenge #55~Use Clip Art

The challenge this week on Arty Girlz is to use Clip Art in your creations, if you don't have any clip art do a Google search and take your pick there lots of great clip art images on the net, OR for this challenge you can use copyright free images from other sources that you may have. As always interpret the theme as you choose we welcome all crafter's and artists to our challenges.







A4 Mixed media collage


First I dripped water colour paint from the tubes on to A4 card then used and old store card to swish the paint across the card and left it to dry, well more or less i couldnt wait and got my heat gun out and hurried the drying a bit.





I cut the lady image out from a collage sheet from http://www.aisling.net/ i love theses images and use them a lot as you may have noticed. And glued her to the card the other images were on various Cd's that i have bought from eBay i and printed and cut them out and glued them to the card also. stamped some words in black staz on, then used a brush and gesso around the images and smudged it in to blend the images into the back ground rather than them looking like there plonked on top.
