Hi there! The challenge this fortnight was Unique and/or Fame. I was struggling, then the good old iPod did it again... Life's been Good by the Eagles (or Joe Walsh), and yes, I have seen them a couple of times! I'll be able to stick all my old ticket stubs into the book at the end of this! So here is the verse:
It's a difficult one to illustrate, this, so I didn't! I went for abstract.
My A3 substrate this time was watercolour paper. Because I wanted to move the acrylic about on the paper, I gave it a coating of Matt Medium (which I managed to squirt all over my trousers, my T-shirt, the floor, before I got it on the paper...), and then used the Eclectica limited edition Paper Artsy paints in blocks, with a smidge of Nougat, for graduation.
My Kate Crane/Kathryn Wheel stamps turned up yesterday, so I used two half circles on the lower edge, and outlined them in white.
In keeping with the fame theme, I stamped stars in metallic Brilliance around the edge, leaving a gap for the words.
Added the words, and details of the song/band, and hey presto!
Hope you like!
