Found Art Tuesday

Rosa’s Found Art theme for us this week was “Face”. I struggled with this theme, only being able to think of either a clock face or a human face. I wanted to make something a little different as well, as so far all of my found art pieces have been drawings or paintings on A5 paper. I toyed with the idea of making a hand mirror out of papier-mâché, but after playing around with Adobe Photoshop for a while I came up with this instead.

I started with a photo of my nephew (looking very thoughtful) and applied the “Stamp” effect, then painted the image onto a CD covered in gesso. Thank you Jafabrit for the idea of recycling old CD’s and records in art! I think this is quite a nice image for an album!

Apart from this it has been a rather uneventful week for me as far as art goes. I’ve been making preparations for projects by buying materials and taking photographs, that sort of thing, and mentally making lots of plans, but last night when I tried to put those plans into action I discovered my confidence was missing and I’m not sure where I left it. If you see it anywhere please let me know. I want it back!

Thank you Leanne. I was quite pleased with this one.

Does it look black on your screen? It's supposed to be green and blue!
