Grab Bags Aren't Just for Digital Creations May 03 2016, 0 Comments

April's grab bag was chock full of watercolor papers and elements, desert scenes and elements, a sassy art doll Hattie and a selection of cuts from the works of artist Paul Klee.  

In April the de Young museum in San Francisco had a limited engagement exhibit called Bouquets to Art (local florists create arrangements that represent a piece of art) and they always have a stunning brochure.  I loved the colors and used the cover of the brochure as the focal point of my art piece along with some acrylic paint, stencil and of course a digitally created element from the April Grab Bag, now available as separate kits: Tangie Baxter's Resonate and Rebecca McMeen's Hattie (product images at the end of this post) .

First, I digitally created an art doll using elements from Rebecca’s portion of the Grab Bag - Hattie and then printed it out on paper.

Next I applied a color wash of three colors that are used in the art from the magazine.

Then I cut out my “Hattie” and glued her, the magazine cover and title onto page.  As a last thought applied a leaf stencil to the upper left.
