Here’s a white altered book page I did in time for this week’s Inspire Me Thursday.
I printed a freebie paper from Somerset Studio onto a transparency sheet and
used gel medium to transfer it to muslin. When it dried I frayed the edges and
made my doll from a bunch of printed papers, using silk hydrangeas as wings
(painted with a little pearl paint). I added lace fro her top and sheer strip of
ribbon for her skirt. The head is cut from vintage clip-art and crystals glued
on for her tiara. The stip of paper on top reads ‘beauty comes from within’. The
bottom has a scrap of printed twill tape. White doesn’t have to be boring.
I’ve been following Inspire Me Thursday for about a month and half now, but have yet to join in on the challenges. Today was the day though – the challenge is “think big”… to do something bigger than normal. Yesterday I happened to hit a sale at Micheal’s and picked up some 16×20 canvases… much bigger than my usual small format stuff. I figured one day I would try something bigger. So early this am I was online and saw ‘think big’ as the new theme – so of course I HAD to give it a whirl!
I’ve been wanting to try some birds for a while so here it is. I painted the canvas with acrylics, adding in some printed papers to add some texture and interest. (grass, bird, heart & sun) Lastly the eye is a swarovski crystal and it’s ready to go. I had a blast doing this and I think I might even try a series – who knows. All I know is that now that I’ve finally taken the Inspire Me Thursday plunge, I’m hooked.
