My blogging pal Carol makes beautiful art. She uses wonderful quote stamps and I have always suffered from Carol-quote-envy!! (But she knows, so it’s fine!). I did manage to find a whole sheet of art quotes at MaVinci’s Reliquary ages ago. I love them to bits and have used a few here on this page for The Three Muses “Quips & Quotes” challenge this week.
I used a layered transfer technique as the main focus for this page. I’ve been watching random Milliande Art Journalling videos and was quite fascinated with this one, so I tried it out here… Now, being the heavy-handed klutz that I am, I ruined a couple of them – rubbed too hard – but, as it’s a layered technique, it didn’t really matter that much. But this cartoony couple remained, mostly intact and I was able to paint on, over and around them, etc.
The stamps which are not sayings, are my handcarved ones and I seem to be playing with lots of different colours at the moment. The actual quotes read: “Well done is better than well said”; Without art, we are but monkeys with car keys. (no idea where that one’s from, but I love it!) and barely visible, “Art is not a thing, it is a way.” (Elbert Hubbard). My favourite place for quotes by Einstein, etc. is www.thinkexist.com
