Stampotique Designers Challenge is brought to us this week by Gez Butterworth. While many of us around the world are experiencing a delayed Spring, Gez has challenged us to "focus on flowers" in our art. I used my new Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate in creating this page in my art journal. I used the same flower stencil three times, using two different acrylic paints each time, then a second stencil (the chicken wire) over the top. Next, I used a Stampotique stamp called Dandelion Duo. I chose to stamp the dandelions in black rather than a strong color so that they might appear weaker than the other flowers (bear with me...there's a point here). The last step was to use a second Stampotique stamp called "You're Strong," created by my artist friend France Papillon from Belgium. Sometimes, the humor I inject into my art is subtle, as it is today. The point? Is not the dandelion the STRONGEST "flower" that you have growing in your yard?
So, here's the reveal:
I am glad that you visited me here today. It's easy to let me know you were here--leave a comment!
Joy to you!
