Crusade #42

Strip Ease, is the name of the new challenge from GPP with Michelle Ward for crusade number 42.

It is all about working with ripped and torn strips of paper, I thought of all the junk mail and how I normally tear it in half. So for the one week, when I was saving my junk mail, I hardly got any  and it was only for pizza, burgers and cable. So not a lot of choice as I only wanted to use solid colours  and no text.

I pull out some ATC blanks, I had prepared previously and started playing with my bits of paper.  Just used a little tape to hold the papers down.  I am quite happy with the results. This was such a fun exercise, just might do a few more. Thanks,  Michelle.  There are a lot of players in this crusade, go and have a look at how eveyone has interpreted the challenge.

    Rosemary – such fun colors composed from your junk mail! Love seeing all the white edges, works with the white background. Thanks for coming to play.

    I like these mini collages a lot – very Henri Matisse – especially the top two. And the wood grain texture in the bottom two is very yummy indeed!

    These turned out great…I like the one on the bottom right…it reminds me of an Egyptian figure.

    Wow, I don’t get junk mail like that or perhaps it’s just that I don’t see that. I’ll have to see if there are any real solid colors when I get home. Interesting layout…really bold and colorful.

    I love the idea of recycling art into more art. It saves your art, your heart, and creates more!

    You got such great colours – I love the vibrancy of the finished works. Isn’t it amazing what comes through the mailbox if we really take the time to look?
