Time to make some ART - literally - and a SALE
Hi Everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend. I found some time to make a bit of art, so mine has been great so far! I was itching to do a FUN collage, and what could be more fun than an ART collage! Literally! We also have several other fun goodies in the shop.
Well now, this is most definitely some ART time. I had a BLAST playing with our new Jumbo Art Word Cut Outs. They have lots of area to alter, which satisfied my desire to do a fun layered collage. Of course you can go several routes with these letters! I'll share my steps below!
Supplies: Jumbeo ART Word Cut-Outs, Mini Stencil Words Set, Collage Sheet DP335, Collage Sheet DP336, Collage Sheet DP337, Collage Sheet DP166, Large Fish Scales Stencil, Glue N Seal Matte, Basic Grey File Set, Arichival Ink Black and Sepia, Ink Blending Foam, Brushes, Music Score Stamp
First, I brushed on some acrylic paint. I didn't worry too much about covering the entire thing. I went for fast and a bit messy! I used Orange, Hot Pink, and Aqua.
Next, I tore up bits of vintage book pages and attached randomly using my Glue N Seal.
To clean my edges, I used the Basic Grey File Set. This set is the absolute BOMB! It comes with several small files for getting in those tight spaces. And of course a few larger files too. I'll never use sand paper again! Next I added some rubber stamping.
I fussy cut several collage images and tore a few others. I attached them with Glue N Seal and filed my edges with my new file set!
Using my Large Fish Scale stencil, I added some White acrylic paint in certain areas.
To finish things off, I added the word "ARTIST" using our new stencil and a black gel pen.
Your ART is ready to display. You have several options!
I think I like my ART best in the window sill!
