Beauty is Everywhere

Hello! The new challenge is up at More Than words! You have to be inspired by the word Vintage and add some Collage to your art journal page.

Can you spot the collage in mine?

Yes - I collaged the butterfly! I collaged pieces of vintage paper that were given to me by my online friend, Carolyn S. Nehring. I digitally removed most of the colour from the butterfly then printed the butterfly over the top of the collage, letting the vintage papers show through. I then cut it out and added it to my page.

Will you join in the challenge this month? You can find the details here.

Happy creating!

A Bit of Banksy

Hi there. I don't usually get political in my artwork but this month's challenge over at Kraft + sent me heading in this direction. The challenge is to be inspired by Banksy and to use kraft of course.

Banksy's artwork often makes a social statement and a huge social issue at the moment is the invasion of the Ukraine.

Banksy often paints figures in black and white so I found a photo of Putin and digitally altered it to look like it's painted. I added a quote by the Ukrainian president (I altered the quote slightly from the original) which I think sums up the ridiculous reasons Putin has come up with to justify this war.

Banksy often adds splashes of colour, particularly red, so I used this to symbolise the casualties of war.

I love the way challenges inspire us to try new things!

I hope you can join us. You can find the details here.

Happy creating!
