Arty Girlz challenge # 62 your favourite colours

This weeks challenge over on Arty Girlz is to use your YOUR favourite colour/s on your creation. As always its up to you what style of art work you create as Julie and I hope to encourage all types of crofter's and artists to join in with our challenges. so pop on over there and have a go and join in .

This is mine its an 8x8 canvas board. My favourite colours are purple's and lilac's going in to blues. I used acrylic paint for the background I found an image of wing's on the Internet a while back and traced them on to acetate and cut them out to make a stencil. I had the heart negative already. I used purple acrylic paint over the stencils then used gel pen in black to add depth to the heart and wings. oh and a bit of Gesso here and there

It's not finished yet not sure what I'm gonna do but it just don't feel finished if you know what i mean.

I really do love hearts with wings and would love a Tattoo with a winged heart but we'll see ;-)

The picture isn't doing the colours any justice at all the heart and wings are a lovely deep purple colour but look blueish in the pic.

Inchie set Awfully Big Art Adventure

This weeks challenge over at Awfully Big Art Adventure is inches or a set of pop on over there for more info.

I made a set of inches on a 4x4 canvas.

I used Burnt sienna, Titanium white, and cerulean blue with a hint of gold i used a brayer to apply the colour to my canvas and used a heat gun to dry and also to blister the paint for texture.
Then i used the same colours on card stock used the brayer again to apply the colour when dry i cut out my inches and used see D's morsel stamps to stamp my images. I glued the inches to the canvas when everything was dry i gave it a coat of beeswax.

Blog inspiration

The challenge this week over on Arty Girlz is blog inspiration, my inspiration came from Linda's Blog. Linda makes the most amazing creations on her blog and she has been making little works of Art On wooden blocks so this is my inspiration to create something on wood.

But i had a problem i didn't have any wood LOL so i had to improvise i did have these

some Jenga blocks so i glued 4 together and made this

I collages the block with papers that had ladies, tea pots , tea cups and writing on it. used different colours of paint over the top and rubbed some off to reveal a little bit of the images underneath then added the black and white image and went round the edge with a soft white pencil and a charcoal pencil to blend the image in. since i took the picture i have given it a coat of beeswax to finish it off . Linda has kindly added this to the Awfullly big art adventure blog as there theme last week was chunky block's
