Make Art That Sells Week 4

Week 4 in Lilla Rogers Make Art that Sells was Wall Art.  This week was all about having fun and playing. We started the week with a mini exercise to gather lots of things we could use for collaging...papers, vintage wallpaper, fabric, buttons etc in two colours based on our star sign. Mine were orange and green.  The assignment was to create an abstract collage style wall art in your two colours (plus unlimited neutrals) which had to include some words and floral motifs.

Here is my finished piece.  The quote is "The way to love anything is to realise that it may be lost" by Gilbert K. Chesterton.  We were allowed a bit of flexibility with our colours, my orange definitely turned into a very red orange, and I didn't use much green.

Sooo many layers of paper, paint and glue went into this and it went through a series of transformations...I stuck bits on....sanded them off.....painted back over it....sanded it...painted over it completely in orange at one point....didn't like it....tried to wash it off (which left quite a nice effect) and spent ages on this.  But it was worth it in the end.  I did enjoy it, and Lilla featured it in her review (which is always nice).

Happy days.
