Collage Magazin City Skyline


I made a background size dinar of A 4 in blue colors and a city skyline from magazin cut outs.Then I have laid them (only to glue) on the background and draw shadows around, you can see them below. After that I painted over the city collage with different distress paints and the outlines with black marker. Then I glued them on the background under the shades. At last I painted the water reflexion, glued the sun on, stamped the birds and added still some color on the sky. I hope you like it and I'm glad if you leave a comment, it means a lot to me.

My Headlines Beauty for Art Journal Journey


(Deutsche Beschreibung drunter) The background is again made like the Erin Ashley inspired posts before with cut out headlines glued with Mod Podge on cardstock. Paint over with a bit Gesso, specially in the middle this time. After that I stamped the face and paint over with colored Gesso, first less then I tried more and more to smooth the unevenness from the background headlines more. Also I intensified the area around with colors after stamping the diamond patterns. You can see the color and stamp progress in steps below. I hope you like it and wish all my visiters a nice 2.nd sunday in Advent.

........



Ein Stück cardstock hab ich mit Gesso bepinselt und die Überschriften mit ModPodge aufgeklebt und mit einigen Pinselstrichen Gesso etwas unleserlicher gemacht, speciell in der Mitte wo ich das Gesicht aufgestempeln wollte, das ich dann mit gefärbtem Gesso bemalt habe, stückweise hab ich immer mehr versucht die Streifen und Unebenheiten vom HG zu verdecken, gelingt nicht ganz, weil Kleber und Gesso uneben auftrocknen. Das Umfeld hab ich auch mehrmals mit Distress nachgefärbt nach dem Bestempeln mit den Diamonds.
Ich hab sie auf AJJ verlinkt

Again freely adapted from Erin Asley but this time in warm brown colors. I glued the headlines on (you can 
see the progress below) and then paint a bit over with gesso and brown dylusion. I hope you like it too.

City Skyline at Night for Art Journal Journey


I love Erin Ashley's art works very much. She has inspired me again with her "City on my mind" Here is my personal skyline. 
I painted a cardboard with white gesso and then mixed with different blue inks, (below) at last added stars with Sharpie.
After that I glued my skyline on, only made of TOS stripes a favorite technique (TOS = Torn Off Stripes of a magazin with a sellotape).
