I've got a small box of painted scraps and magazine clippings and I gave myself the restriction of using only what was in the box along with watercolour paints, stamps and stamp pads.
I cut out a rectangle,
glued on some magazine text and did some random painting and stamping.
At this stage it didn't look at all interesting.
Have you heard it said that you should keep going, that there is a stage in making art when it can look hopeless, but if you keep going it takes off again?
I covered up the ginkgo leaf with my own photo of a poppy (which was in the box) and shortly afterwards it turned out a lot better.
The text, white frame, the blue pattern round it and the blue pattern bottom left are from magazines.Otherwise everything else is my own painted papers, painting and stamping.
I quite like it.
Thanks to "Moo-Mania" for a super theme which made me make something different.
Using corrugated card is definitely a new thing for me so I am also linking to "Anything But Cute" where they are asking us to use something new.
