Go Fish! (a three-fer)


I finally found a bit of time to create some art for three challenges.  Today I'm joining Art Journal Journey, Moo-Mania and More, and Try it on Tuesday with this piece that came together after I saw how well each challenge fit together.

I call it Go Fish!  It's a play on a card game of the same name.

We'll begin with the bubbles expelled by the fish (yes, you must use your imagination) because these bubbles contain letters and numbers which is the theme this fortnight for Try it on Tuesday.

The fish are the main focus of an underwater theme, Moo-Mania and More's challenge this fortnight.

And finally, the circles are Rosie's theme this month's host at Art Journal Journey.

Materials used include heavy white cardstock painted with watercolor crayons.  To that I added small circles made from a Martha punch and colored, and a large circle punch I colored in a different blue watercolor crayon.  The fish and most of the fish bubbles were stamped, although some had sticker numbers added.

Thanks so much for joining me today, then please join me at Art Journal Journey, Moo-Mania and More, and Try it on Tuesday

Awesome page, I love how you managed to do a "three fer".
I haven't heard of that card game, but it could be a fun one with fish featured in it.
I think we must have been thinking along the same lines today with circles and fish.
Thank you for joining us all over at TioT's with this wonderful happy page.

Smart woman, you are! Combining all the challenges. Love the motion and energy that circles bring to art and you can't beat fish for motion and energy!

This is great Elizabeth - you've really created a dreamy watery background for your fish. I certainly remember playing that game! I played it as a kid and played it with my son when he was younger. Fun!

The fish are obviously communicating in Bubble language, the well-known fishy language, in number and letters.
Love the blueness of the sea and the way you have achieved three for the price of one.
