Gingersnap Creations Theme Challenge

My first make as Visiting Artist for Gingersnap Creations and the theme is:


Oh the lovely Summer months, so nice to see blue skies and sunshine! So I thought I would go full on vacation feel for my make.

I’ve used multimedia techniques to make this Summer picture. To give you an idea of the scale you can see the make mid-production at this post here. It is 21×22 cm and I’m planning to make it into the front cover of a homemade sketch book for my multimedia playing.

I’ve added texture with newspaper, some corrugated card and if you look closely you will see a doily too. There was lots of acrylic paint, masking and stamping involved. Great Fun!

The image was saved from a newspaper, I could not help myself – I loved it and just knew I would use it somewhere!

So the Heat is on, don’t forget to check out the fabulous challenge over at Gingersnap Creations!

Catch you later.
