These were the rules for March:
1. Keep a part of the original picture and incorporate that into your design
2. Technique - use a candle or wax crayon as a resist
3. Add a title, using letters or words cut from a magazine/leaflet in a ransom style.
I have to say this one did not come easily, I think because the original painting doesn't have a clear distinct focal point, but here's my finished product:
This page started off as a painting of Loch Katrine by Sir John Lavery.
I was feeling rather lost at this point so I looked through my stamps and found a set from Paper Artsy (JOFY Collection 14). As soon as I saw them I decided to use the original parts of the calendar as flower centres. Once I had made that decision the rest was easy. Except the part about using a candle or wax crayon as a resist. Mine just didn't want to resist! But it's there if you look closely you can see some wee blue circle marks on the background-that's my wax crayon, very subtle!
I finished off with the ransom lettering of a quote. I must confess this is my least favourite part of my page.
