Anyways, Helga's January 5th challenge on her blog - http://myartisticlife.typepad.com/ - was to use 3 or more of her recent art challenges and combine them together to make one fabulous piece of art. : ) I could not resist! I chose 'Get Inspired by Pattern, Color, Texture, Your Reading Materials, Things You Enjoy, and Your Scraps!
I started with a circle pattern. I used a circle template and my watercolor crayons, adding different colors, layering and adding gold & black pens. My base was a 12" x 12" piece of scrapbook paper and I pulled colors out of that paper to work with. I added texture by crumpling up a piece of scrap paper and pouncing pink and gold lumiere paint onto the scrapbook paper to add color & texture. I added a piece of watercolor paper behind the scrapbook paper to support it.
I used a metallic marker to edge the piece and splatter all over, something I cannot not seem to resist adding to my work! This is a very "worked over" piece, my favorite kind of art to do.
