Happy Tuesday everyone. It is already August, and already time for a new challenge at Try It on Tuesday.
Thank you to all of you who joined our Feathered Friends challenge. This time our challenge is Keep It Simple.
This is not the easiest challenge for me since I want to layer my background and add all kinds of details. I'm not even sure this page is that simple. Smile.
Instead of a multi-layered and colored background, I simply used matte medium and attached this sheet of printed tissue paper from Dina Wakely.
The middle image is a shrunken picture of a pretty vintage book cover. I die cut a couple of flying birds (which I believe are actually swallows not bluebirds) and inked them blue. Then I added this wonderful vintage Mother and daughter image and gave them each a summer flower.
Perhaps it could have been simpler, but for me, this is pretty straight forward. If you check out the other design team artworks you can see some really gorgeous but "simple" pieces.
All kinds of art is accepted at Try It On Tuesday, and you have the next 2 weeks to join this challenge.
I am also linking up to this journal page to Neet's type challenge at Art Journal Journey My background is full of text which is of course made of type. Just a reminder that only art journaling is accepted there.
I look forward to seeing all your Keep It Simple art, and I'm hoping maybe I can get a few pointers on doing that.
Thanks for visiting.
