purple dress torn paper art

mix media art torn paper, magazine papers,tissue papers,and scrapbook paper. I added magazine pieces of grass and mountains and some flowers I sort of made it a collage as I didn’t have enough of the same photo to cover the back ground I was so excited to just add wheat and grass and flowers and it looked like it belonged.’I also gave her a cool slip showing and used earth tone colors for the ground this is a great way to use my scraps of scrap book papers.the socks is White texture “BASIC ” paper.  I tore it straight up and down to give the socks a ribbed look. and I hand made the pansy flower on her shoe,with matching black and purple tissue paper. I did layers on her dress of light blue and then purple strips. love how she turned out………

torn paper birds…

my newest torn paper mix media art work .. used mulberry paper, tissue papers and other speciality papers. this is all hand torn paper and plenty of glue. also some texture paste.love this new art expererince…….

April is national poetry month… so in honor I did this puffin

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really enjoyed doing this guy.  I think they are really cute birds.. I ve been feeling ill so this is a short quick post.. thank you for your comments .Love reading them…..

learning about torn paper art….. and sharing it ……

First theres lots of ways to do this some people just use nothing but magazine  tears and the tears are the finished lines with the ways of the tears and its all in the directions of the tears up or downward lines..Some artist just  use scrapbook paper, and some use painted papers they paint papers then tear them… I do all the above now whatever the mood strikes me.  So here’s one I just finished doing wish I could remember the original artist name that did this in a painting……. I think she did an oil painting of this of sorts…

start off with a sketch , draw a rough likeness …… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I started off with doing the legs using only magazine flesh photos …faces arms whatever your fancy for the color did the up and down tears with no white.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

when  tearing the skin for legs place like doing puzzle see if it fits tear . move it around see where it looks good if you don’t like it glue another over it. save your torn papers because you’ll need them on another project as this is very addictive art……… especially if you’r good at puzzles and matching colors and piece placements…. this will be a  breeze for you……  for the background went for green bush and grass tree look. and did the brown but covered it up later because I hated it with the brown.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the socks are torn texture paper I tore the paper in lengths and glued them one on top of the other to look like the socks are rubbed , or that was what I thought anyways it worked for me… LOL

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

next  I believe, I did the souls of the shoes and black magazine shadows.

scissors are showing to cut edges  ends straight to paper .

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

then I did the shoes  tear paper sort of rounded in the direction of the shoe so it flows and looks round at the ends. you could also add shading with a red marker on here… up to you…and then ground area …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

this is so addictive once you start you won’t be able to stop making them……. I found another fun art paper project…

my art cups …………..

I have been seeing cups stacked up like this all over the art world and , I love them… they just call out to me so as always monkey see monkey do !!! LOL!!!  Mines slightly different in the coffee color background as most others went for bright cheerful colors.And I just got a Brand new Faber-Castell artist pen WRITES IN WHITE!!!!!!!!. If you were looking for stock to invest in go with art supplies  made by These people as I shall be buying more of their products.. O.K. its kind of a running joke as I am spending money alot of on their products… . maybe I should be their promoter? LOL….. Any ways I had way too much fun making this fun page.and yes these are cricut cups…… oh the wonderful world of cricut!!!!

Dylusions ink sprays my new love!!!

oh my new stash is so much fun, love my new stencils ,inks and paints ……..  And papers are aw-w-esome !!!

Brand new fun mix media art stuff rocks thanks to my family…….. oh and I finally got to use the YES  glue on my collage birds and torn paper art.  YES what a strange name for glue ,must be an interesting story behind that name..  Any ways LOVE IT !!    it ‘s great for gluing small areas as its kind of hard to spread around, it’s pretty thick stuff.but I like it..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
