Default MIX461:What Do You See (11-26-2021)

Title: What Do You See
Hostess: peeps321 (Polly)
Keyword: MIX461

Many of you will be spending time with family this holiday season perhaps after a long absence due to the pandemic. One thing you may be doing is reading to grandchildren, nieces and nephews, etc. If they're small you'll probably be reading a book by Eric Carle. He is the artist and author behind such classics as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Mr. Carle passed away earlier this year and left behind a colorful legacy.

Challenge: Be inspired by the artwork of Eric Carle. Let the colors guide you. Or try his collage style in which he pieces together bits and pieces of tissue paper to create his animals and objects. Check out his website https://eric-carle.com/ . He shows his process here https://eric-carle.com/media-gallery/photos/

Remember to use two or more mediums on your card.

Make sure to put MIX461 in the keyword section.

See the MIX461 gallery here Gallery at Splitcoaststampers

Fun challenge, Polly. I remember buying The Hungry Caterpillar for the little girl in the family I lived with for a few months before moving to the UK. They all loved books - Reuben would have me reading till I went hoarse when I got home from work. The younger two, thankfully, were still just at the picture-book stage.

MIX461 A Sunrise Sunflower by Precious Kitty at Splitcoaststampers
Polly this is great! I looked at his website, and found a picture of a sun rising drawn by a small child. This flower reminds me of that.

I am playing my "Challenge Catch-up" cardmaking. This is my take on the colorful art work of EDric Carle, writer and illustrator of the "Hungry Caterpillar." I've added a critter to my card and used bright and vibrant primary and secondary colors as seen in much of his art work. Mediums: Copic markers; computer ink; Black journal pen; white gel pen.

This is a get well card for my youngest son, who has been sick for over a week! Hoping it cheers him up!

Here is my card: Under the Weather? by Chatterbox-1 at Splitcoaststampers
