Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday.
Our "All Loved Up" challenge at Try It On Tuesday has come to end. Thanks to everyone who joined us. Yet when one thing ends another begins, so today I want to share our new challenge theme which is
Add Some Texture.
My page started with a not so fantastic CitraSolve transfer. You can see the red flower just above the middle of the page, along with the yellow/green background around it. I then added bits of printed tissue and painted paper around that image.
I had this quote which I cut out of an ad that I liked, and I decided to make my page about it. Margot and Francine are relaxing and listening to some music. I cut 2 small pieces of kraft paper to make their seats. Then I used my sewing machine and stitched and stitched and stitched some more to give the background some texture. It does add interest to the page, doesn't it? I think I need to do this much stitching more frequently.
Finally I used a black Sharpie and a musical stencil to add the notes. For those of you who can read music, I didn't realized I put the staff on upside down until after I did it, and by then it would have been a big mess to fix it. I does look pretty interesting upside down though.
I hope Margot and Francine are enjoying some down time and the music too.
Don't forget at Try It On Tuesday you have 2 weeks to join our challenge, and any kind of art is welcome. Be sure to check out the other great examples from our design team. They never fail to have great ideas.
I'm also linking up my page to 2 other challenges. First of all I am once again joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth over at Art Journal Journey. This month their challenge is "What's Your Style?"
I am also linking up to River of Creativity, and their challenge this month is "Anything Goes".
I hope to see your textured art at Try It On Tuesday in the next 2 weeks.
Thanks for visiting.
