I've completed week 2 of this on line course -
click on the picture below if you want more details.
This week it was all about creating layers -
landscapes and clothing and of course, two more She Art Girls.
I was a bit more adventurous this week and worked on
artists' canvas board although only small ones
measuring 7" x 5".
For the background of this one, no scrapbook or other papers
were used, just paint, sprays, crayons etc.
Apart from the birds that is, they are gingham fabric.
I originally cut a 'bird shape' from paper,
but as my husband pointed out when I showed him
it looked a bit like a daschund dog sitting on a line - lol -
it really did, and was far too big - so I scraped it off
and rubber stamped two birds onto fabric and am
much happier with the overall look.
The layered skirt is created with strips of paper
folded up to resemble ruffles.
I think she looks a bit like a bag lady.
Do you remember the lovely song
".... carrying her home in two carrier bags ..."
My bag lady has left London behind for the day
and had a day out in the countryside.
I decided to make the next one a bit brighter.
This time scrapbook paper was used as a starting point
for creating the landscape - then a little bit of everything else!
(I don't think my craft room has ever been messier!)
The dress has a layered skirt.
The words I chose are from a selection provided by
"She knew where she was from"
and this reminded me of another song
My girl - or should I say Marie-Claire has left
".....St Moritz and the others of the jet-set....."
for the day and has joined the Bag Lady for a day in the
The final week of the course is next and it's about
creating a She-Girl based on our own photograph - doh!
Don't like the sound of that, but I'll have a go.
Thanks for looking :)
