So the photos were the inspiration for this page and I knew that I wanted color but didn't want to compete with the colors of the photos. I picked some of the papers that had bright fun colors and used them in small doses. The watercolor circle paper from Crate Paper was perfect! I only used small strips of it so as to not compete. Then I used the vellum paper as a background.
Behind the Art with Jen
Hi artsy friends! Jen here to share a favorite page of mine from this kit! When I found out the focus of this kit was the word "Perspective", I immediately thought of looking up. I had taken this photo of me in front of Dale Chihuly's permanent art exhibit at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. There is a ceiling of glass Macchia forms that is breathtaking! As an art teacher and artist who admires and loves Chihuly's work, I was in awe!
But I started by using the stencil in a unique way. I loved the shapes in the camera stencil but didn't want to use the whole stencil. I just used a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist pen to trace some of the shapes in a random way around the paper. I kept it sketchy and created a modern looking pattern. The vellum pieces really soften the lines but still allow them to show through.
