Fantasy

Today we’re back with a magical layout! This time we were inspired by a few challenges and we love our end result:-)!

“Dreams are not without meaning wherever they may come from- from fantasy, from the elements, or from other inspiration.” Beyond the stars is a world of dreams and fantasy- follow your dreams, my friend, they know the way!

Here’s a look at our layout before we getting into our inspirations:)!

Fantasy LO 1

Fantasy LO 3Fantasy LO 2Fantasy LO 4Fantasy LO 5Fantasy LO 7

We were inspired by the following challenges:

Mixed Media and Art October Challenge- Fantasy – We were inspired by the dark shades of blue, grey, green contrasted with the yellow gold of the light, as well as the theme of fantasy and the first image of being lost among stars.

Words and Paintery October challenge – inspired by the colours and theme of creating without limits.

7 Dots Studio October Challenge- Sunrise- Sunset– inspired by sunset leading to a dark yet hopeful night. We’ve used the Dreamscapes and HazyDays Collection.

Cuts2Luv November Challenge– we were inspired by the darker blue-grey tones with the contrast of yellow/gold; our badge has stars on it and we used a clock as our embellishment.

We’ve also created this project for the Stage 4 of Creative Art Project at Mixed Media and Art and have an exclusive post for that here.

Message In A Bottle

” ‘It’s Impossible’. Said Pride. ‘It’s Risky.’ Said Experience. ‘It’s Pointless.’ Said Reason. ‘Give it a Try.’ Whispered the Heart.” Here’s a Message in a Bottle that the waves brought ashore. A diary of experiences and a message for each one of you to listen to the whispers of your heart, for only they can give you wings to soar high.

Today we’re back with an altered mixed media creation. We were inspired by the mood board at Mixed Media Place September Challenge and the Lindy’s October Color Challenge! We were also inspired by the Creative Art Joint Venture by Mixed Media and Art Stage One Mechanical Explosion. Our project is submitted for the mentioned challenges.

The mood board at MMP has some amazing colours and elements. The quote inspired us to challenge ourselves and create something, We altered a bottle and have followed the Orange with Teal Color Combo from the board. We incorporated the quote as well, apart from the various textures. moodboard-mmp-9-2017

For the Mechanical Explosion bit, we’ve used hardware store chain, lock and key for our no scrap metal objects and feathers to represent the wings on our picture.

Bohemian Secret

We’re back with another layout! We were inspired by the mood board at Mixed Media Art September Challenge. The sketch, elements and the colours are so inspiring and spoke peace to us. We’ve used the sketch, the colours, the mandala patterns and textures.

Africa

The International Tournament of Art and Craft Challenge 4 is taking us to Africa. Well, Africa is special to us because Sunila hails from Kenya and has spent her childhood there.

Africa thus brings some stark imagery to our minds and we’ve used that in our creation.

We’ve created two canvas panels incorporating the themes and the mood-board for Africa.

  • Warm, bright colors- We’ve used metallic accents and warm desert colors.

  • Repeated ethnic patterns- We focussed on the folklore- their work, music, dance and repeated that symbolism.

  • Charms, pearls, metallic wire- We’ve created ours with clay.

  • Words or text- Not included as we felt, our pieces speak for themselves

  • Textures, cracks, rust effect- The entire feel of the pieces’ is rustic, with varied textures and 3 D images.

Oceania

The International Tournament of Art & Craft Challenge is really getting us to push our limits and go beyond the usual.

The Challenge 3 Oceania was not only about creating but also about reading and going into the history.

We’ve created a canvas incorporating various elements and mediums.

  • Patterns inspired by traditional symbols – we worked with lines and Aboriginal forms.

  • Think Monochromatic black and white or think colors of the Earth- We’ve worked with the classic black and white and the colors representing the five elements that come together to form our world/planet. (Wind, Fire, Water, Wood, Metal)

  • Some sort of organic or natural material(s)- We’ve worked on jute as our base for the canvas.

  • Shapes inspired by traditional or indigenous art-  Basic geometry and we’ve incorporated ambiguity in our piece.

Here’s a look at the canvas:
