My Favourite Pet

The challenge at Sunday Postcard Art is "My Favorite Pet".  I could not chose one favorite so have chosen to use both my hairy babies, Paddy a Jack Russel / Border Collie cross and Minnie a Patterdale Terrier.  I cut a 6 x 4 piece of canvas which then  had paint, ink, stamps, screen, rub ons and anything I could lay my hand on thrown at it! My painting of the dogs is far from expert but I think it catches their playfulness.

Blue Heart

The challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art is My Heart is Blue for You.  To me this brings to mind loss and unrequited love.  his poor wee chap is in tears over his unattainable lady who wears her blue heart as a crown.  I started with random stamping on a card then a layer of watery gesso, it should be possible to just spot the stamping through the gesso.  Next came collage form Iitkupilli.

Bella Piccolo Pierette

The theme over on Sunday Postcard Art is Italy, my take on the theme is a little pierette, the female version of Pierot from the Commedia dell'arte (not to be confused with a Belgian detective).  The back ground is inks with masks and stamping.  The image is by Iitkupilli.

The Bird has Wings

The Tag Along #23 Challenge is "Favourite Technique".  This tag has been made using my favorite gesso ressist with ink over mask background.  The wee birdy is by Stampotique Originals, I love the way you can use this bird flying in both directions.
