When I saw the Scrapki-wyzwaniowa February challenge "Abstract Art NO Flowers" I knew it was for me!!! I've only recently discovered this challenge site and it ROCKS! Oh my the art work on it is AMAZING!!! Tough competition, which is exactly what I like to challenge my artistic self and stretch that creative rubber band.
Talk about some messy fun on a Friday night! Hey!! Noooooo .... good clean messy fun LOL!
I used my brayer to smear acrylic paint over the background but because I'd treated my paper with a layer of gel medium prior to adding the paint, I could wipe it off in patches to give it a rustic appearance.
Mt sister is an actor so I am blessed with an endless supply of amazing photos from her Instagram and Twitter accounts!
I use cotton in almost all of my projects and I normally just pop it underneath something and add some glue but because this was to be influence by abstract art, I decided to adhere it using modelling paste!
I also added some partial rubons and stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp that says "Imagination is more important than Knowledge". My sentiment exactly!!!
Loved layering, loved getting messy, love the end result!
Wish me luck xx
