February Scrapki-Wyzwaniowa Challenge Abstract Art NO Flowers

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
