Arrow IC549 - Abstract Art {06-11-16}

This week we're getting our fingers inky to create one of a kind designs using mixed media, stamps, ink, and whatever else floats your boat! In honor of the wealth of mixed media techniques that exist, I've selected a fabulous board on Pinterest called Abstract Art to inspire us in this direction! Therefore, I encourage you to PLAY! Play with inks, play with different mediums, and be sure to try inventing your own textures! There are so many things around the house that you can dip into ink, or paint, to create wonderfully artsy textures and patterns. I personally like to use stencils, sponges, ziplock bags, aluminum foil, tissue paper, and even that bubble stuff you put into boxes to keep things from breaking. Go at it, let's get inky this week!

My Abstract Card
My Love of Art Card

Idea: Check out this technique demonstrated by Tim Holtz - have fun!



Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by the Pinterest Board:Abstract Art!

Use the keyword: IC549 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC549 Gallery


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, or don't subscribe to Pinterest, I've uploaded 10 of my favorites. So just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

Smile IC549 time for tea

I was inspired by this amazing piece of art with its circle motifs and great colors- I used 2 paint sample cards for my dc circles, did some wood grain embossing, and added a stacked teacups image and outlined sentiment. Finished with some fabrics. Here's time for tea
