I'm once again joining Claudine at Claudine's Art Corner with my latest edition of the Altered Playing Cards, or APCs.
I tried my best to make these as close to Claudine's as possible, considering I had none of the supplies and tools she has or used.
This week I started with one thickly gessoed card, and one ungessoed card. Claudine used scrapbook paper, while I used my scraps.
I was able to use most of the scraps that had been lingering around my scrap bin for weeks. I set the card aside to dry.
Instead of peach, I used orange, since I was thinking autumn colors. I didn't have that cool stencil Claudine used, so I got out my large punchinella (sequin waste) piece to use as a stencil.
For the dots, I used both a light green and a bright green.
My sharpie took the place of black paint on the second card. Of course, this is where I got confused again, thinking the little girl needed the green wash. Not so.
She actually needed the brown wash I had yet to add to the first card.
After adding a bit of brown to this card, and adding a darker brown (paint, not ink) around the edges, I added the now slightly browned girl. I call this one "Aria"
and this one "Dreams." I realize they aren't the same quality as Claudine's art, but I'm proud of both of them.
Thanks for the visit, and I appreciate that you stopped by, since I'm one of the "rebels" as we have been labeled, who are not on Facebook.
