The last 2 weeks have flown by, and it is once again time for a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday.
Thank you Silke for being our hostess and also to everyone who joined us for our summer themed challenge.
For our new challenge, our theme is
Make It Magic.
I went with some bold sunflowers for this challenge, as I was thinking about how magic a garden can be. You plant some seeds, water them, and voila, you have some beautiful flowers or some yummy veggies to eat after a relatively short period of time.
I made my page by first spraying the background with yellow and blue ink sprays. They created this nice bright green. Then I used a letter stencil and some bronze colored paint to create my background.
The flowers are made with yellow and the same bronze paint I used on the background as well as a sunflower stencil. Once dry I cut them out of the yellow paper I made them on. At first I was going to glue them directly onto the background, but I realized they needed something to break up the bright green and bright yellow contrast. So I used a lightly painted piece of deli paper ripped into little pieces right around the flowers. It does cover up the green background a bit but the flowers stand out better.
The words are small letter stickers. And to finish my page I added some black painted circles outlined with a copper marker.
And don't forget to check out all the other design team members' art also. This might be a tricky challenge for some of you, but there is lots of varied inspiration if you visit all the design team's pieces.
I look forward to seeing your Magical art in the next 2 weeks.
Thanks for visiting.
