Pink and orange tag

I made this tag for the Pink and orange challenge on the Paperartsy blog.
Not the colours I use very often, so it took me some time before I knew what to create.

I used Butternut, Rusty Rose and a little Snow Flake Fresco paints for the sky. I created a scenery with stamps from Stampers Anonymous (car, branches and birds), and houses from Paperartsy HP1110.

To finish, I used a white pen for some details of the car and for some lights in the houses.

Practice Random Acts of Art

The second week of Wanderlust. This was about creating a lot of layers and a focal point. Layers may be completely covered by later layers. Actually, I do not like that. It is a pity of the work. Luckily, I took some photos, so that some layers are still visible.

I started with blue and purple colours.

Next, I added some scrap papers, including one with dutch text, and painted with green and brownish colours. There is not much left of the first layer. White paint for the focal point, a little off center to make it more interesting. No idea yet, what will be in the focal point.

This is the final page. I added blue colours again, and made the focal point yellow. To finish and make it my own creation I used some Paperartsy stamps. The old timer is a very old rubon. It neatly fits in the focal point, which was not foreseen! The leafs and flowers are drawn with Zig markers.

Wanderlust 2017

Last year, I did not create anything, which was ok, lots of other things to do, lot of other things happened. However, at the end of last year, I returned to our craft room, and created an ATC. This was fun to do again.

I started this year with joining Wanderlust 2017, an online class that promises a year-long journey in art journaling and mixed media. The main reason is to get inspiration to use the stamps, inks, etc. again.

Therefore, my statement is Rediscover Happiness in Creating Art.
