This week at Tag You're it the theme is Inspired by.... We want to who inspires you in your artistic journey with papercraft.
I chose one of the genius artists of the impressionist era. My Mother is French so when I was small we spent a lot of time in Paris. I remember going to the Musee D'Orsay to see an Impressionist exibition and was gobsmacked by the fantastic artwork. Monet Stood out for me as outstanding.
As a teenager in art class we had to replicate "The Lillies" again I was so intrigued. Most recently I attented the stunning exhibition at The Royal Academy. SPEECHLESS!!!
So my favourite stamps are Sweet Pea Stamps and so I used this little beauty Spring Spread to make my tag. I decided to have a play with my copics and promarkers and I used the dotting technique. Loved doing this a real challenge but very enjoyable. I then used the white gel pen to try and create the texture that oils/acrylic would have. I mounted onto some card stock.
The sentiment I stamped seperately glued on and then coloured over. It is a marvellous sentiment. I added some faux stitching some string and spacers with gems attatched.
Inspired by Claude Monet
