Janet from Once Upon (Facebook) is hosting a PAL (play along) based on a quote by Alice from the movie - Alice in Wonderland (movie by Disney 1951).
Quote - "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; What it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"
Here is my take on the quote.
I created a mixed media piece on a flat panel canvas.
I like to be unique in my artwork, mixing and matching different types of materials, sometimes makes sense sometimes nonsense, so I think Alice's quote sums up my creative status in this world of mine.
Here are pics of my canvas. Please click pics for detail.
I enjoyed creating this piece, I had this canvas already made up with god knows what, that did not work out, so I painted the canvas with black acrylic paint and with a sketch in mind originally from stamplorations challenge blog, this piece developed into a mixed media art based on Alice's Quote.
I recently bought Mont Marte modelling paste from a gift shop for $9.95, is the coolest thing I ever bought, wow, talk about texture.
I used a stencil with gears and used one gear (my favorite) in each corner with modelling paste and when dried I sponged with distress inks, broken china and dusty concord, love the way turned out, color and some white showing from the paste.
From there I started adding embellishments, what ever came to mind and there you have the finished canvas that is nonsense, to me anyways.
I used stamps from STAMPlorations Patchwork Frenzy: Graphic Squares, to fill in a bit of a border. It is the arrows on the left side of the canvas.
Click pic below to see the rest of the arrow border on each side.
I hope you liked my canvas piece, I certainly did enjoy putting the elements together, I love working in this state of mind and you know what, I could not sleep two nights ago, so from 1am to 4am I worked on this canvas and finished.
I would like to enter my canvas piece to the following challenges:-
