I'd like to begin by saying if you live in the US, it's time to set your clocks FORWARD an hour due to daylight saving time. Now to art.
Moo-Mania and More's latest challenge is to use a newspaper in your art. As always, they accept any and all types of art, not just Moos, as long as your art fits the theme. I began by laying down a very thin and very old newspaper from New York City (NYC). I added a bit of color to the page, then promptly tore the wet newspaper which, as I mentioned before, was very, very thin.
Why is it all these reds are different colors? I guess I have to use what I own, though. And use I did.
I didn't even try to
First, I stamped some apples on red fun foam, something I just discovered in my stash a week or so ago, and I am now in love with. Once the ink was dry, I fussy cut both apples
and the Statue of Liberty that came from a travel brochure dated 2006.
I added a dimensional sticker to the mix when I realized three large apples wouldn't fit on the page.
This will be added to my 7 Continents altered book, which, as many of you remember, I've been working on since 2004, and may never finish. This spread consisted of a page from a newspaper from NYC I added paint to, two images from a NYC travel brochure, two fussy cut foam apples, and a dimensional sticker.
Thank you for looking and thanks for your continued support of my art. Please visit Moo-Mania and More for more exciting newspaper themed art this fortnight.
