This week has seen a round up of some of the wonderful projects seen on the
PaperArtsy blog during 2015. There is SO much inspiration there so why not
take a look......
At the end of my little review this evening, I was asked to produce a "mash-up"
of my three allocated topics: Circles, Pigment Powders and Wearable Art. What
a combination! It all came together in a Mad Hat.
As promised here are a few more details of how it was done.......
First a selection of JOFY flowers stamped in Archival Ink.
I didn't have any pigment powders as such, so I had to improvise.......by
"powdering" Intense Ink sticks with a craft knife into puddles of water.
The colours blend and mix....with a bit of encouragement.
To make the feathers, I created the background first
with plenty of water and a bit of paper jiggling.
I dabbed on gilding medium with a scrunched up paper towel and brushed on the
flakes, then stamped JOFY feathers in Stazon ink.
After cutting everything out, I did a bit of flower art with wires, ribbons,
buttons, organza, and a silent thanks to the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme
circa 1975 ( Creative Interest - Flower arranging).
My daughter, who owns the hat, though appreciative of the artistic merit, was
relieved to know that the whole thing was assembled on a removable ribbon band!
Thank you for visiting, Penny.
