GPP Street Team - Crusade 60: What do you love?
I love hearts. So I took Michelle Ward's challenge this month with the idea of playing with heart pages. The first one has no background prep, just colors sprayed on paper. I found the piece of envelope with postage stamps in a box. I didn't remember where it came from until I saw the city postmark -- it must be from my mother! -- and over 5 years old!
The second one has layers of gesso applied to paper before beginning. It adds dimension and a slower process for painting, more gesso, oil pastels and collage. I wanted to create opposites: white background with red heart, and visa-versa. It was fun! Thanks for the inspiration, Michelle.
I encourage you to try it yourself! Read about the challenge at Michelle's site.
