Its also the first day of Art Every Day Month at Creative Every Day. This will be the second year I do this. Last year I didn't quite manage every day, but the idea is to give it a go and if you miss a day - it doesn't matter. The whole point is not to get stressed but to have fun with it and encourage creativity.
Here is my triptych:
I cut the backround out of thick cardboard packaging and added tissue paper and layers of paint:
some stencilling - including a Crafters Workshop houndstooth which I love:
texture paste through a gorgeous PaperArtsy stencil and finally the words which were all on friends:
I love using texture paste with this stencil, although I made a bit of a mess in my haste! I initially sponged in a creamy colour and edged in black but didn't like it so I put the stencil back over and sponged again in white.
Friend quotes are great to include on gifts and cards for friends and I hope Sarah will like this triptych.
Now I'm off to start my next one! There's lots of inspiration on the PaperArtsy blog.
