Inkspirational Challenge - She Art


Our new challenge a Inkspirational is 'She Art or Image of a Woman'.

I wanted to get the flavour of the She Art style , but with my own twist.

First I painted, stencilled and sprayed a canvas.  Then I printed a large image from A Day For Daisies onto sticky backed canvas. I cut the image out and then cut the hair from the face - I painted the face and neck and then did the hair with paint, stamps and ink.  The quote was cut out on the Silhouette and using a label maker.

Do you recognise the quote? It's a lyric from a Natalie Cole song, and the next line is 'what you only dream about, wild women do.' I can feel a sequel canvas coming on!

Please come and visit us at Inkspirational  and see all the different ways the DT, and our GDT Lyndal have interpreted the theme.

I'd like to enter:
Paper Artsy deconstruction - I deconstructed that digi and reconstructed it again.
Crafty Boots anything but a card
Eclectic Ellapu anything goes

  10. This is very different from your usual style, but then the challenge theme sure is as well. I think you succeeded in reproducing a she art design, and you did it really well...
