Hello everyone! It's Magda. I'm back to work after my holidays but still have time for some relaxing. I'm sitting surrounded by books and magazines. Today I would like to ask you to use a newspaper or magazine in your project. It can be a small piece, some images from magazine to make a collage or you can use whole page as a background. Have fun! Can't wait to see your creations!Each time I visit my sister on Cape Cod, we visit her local transfer station, aka "the dump," to check out what's in the Swap Shop, a free-standing building where one can deposit reusable goods no longer wanted, or snatch up someone else's discard. I have accumulated quite a collection of magazines this way, so I chose a National Geographic from December 2012, and started thumbing through it. This picture immediately caught my eye because of the bright colors. What you see are multi-colored cloth strips used by Mongolian shamans--those called by spirits to heal bodies, minds and souls.
I trimmed the magazine photo to the size of an ATC (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") and adhered it to an ATC blank for strengthing. I chose "Head" from my growing number of Stampotique stamps, and stamped him on white card stock. For sharp contrast against all this color, both Head and my sentiment remained in black and white. Take a look:
I hope you will join me in creating something for this week's challenge. The rules for submitting your work can be found here. At the end of each month, two lucky artists will be randomly chosen to receive a $30 gift certificate for anything in the Stampotique "store."
