Here’s another of the activities on the great experimental art e-courseI am doing…making art from paper, anyway you want to. Ripping, sticking and in Isabella’s case, lots of scrunching.
She decided to do a picture of a tree in blossom with little balls of scrunched up tissue paper – so beautiful and effective.
I love the colour combinations in her girl picture and, as always, the gorgeous eyelashes! She told me after she did it that is was a picture of herself – and pointed to a photo of her on a shelf that she was looking at as she drew!
You can also see my two efforts at paper based art. The sprouting seed is actually from a sketch I did 9 years ago as an idea for a mosaic. I really enjoyed making it and may one day still turn it into a mosaic!
As an aside, this is probably the latest I have been up writing my blog (nearly 1am). My eyes are drooping as I type but I am desperately trying to stay awake to hear the first big results of the UK general election come in…I figured a bit of blogging and a bit of darning would keep me awake……Zzz…
