If Birds Could Talk – a tag booklet by Robyn Wood

RobynHello, it’s Robyn with you today sharing a sweet mixed media tag book.  One again my project features stamps by Dina Wakley, did you notice Dina will be visiting us at Lulu Art in November 2015? Check our website and Facebook page for details. Book in quickly as places are sure to fill fast!

Summer in Australia is filled with strong colours, high heat and the ever present birdlife. I live in suburbia, close to a capitol city but birds are everywhere. We are often woken by the dawn chorus of parrots discovering a new shrub or tree in flower and during walks around the neighbourhood it is unusual if you don’t spot a handful of different species of birds. I often wonder what they are squawking about – are they delighting in the freedom of flight, laughing at the Earth bound humans or discussing something meaningful.

Kindle Your Spark by Robyn Wood

RobynHello, it’s Robyn with you today sharing an art journal page.  As mixed media artists we tend to try lots of different styles of pages, trying to find our style, favourite colours and images that speak to us. Lately I have been doing some research into abstract styles and came across the work of Piet Mondrian, a Dutch pioneer of abstract art.  If you are an Aussie of a certain age or a fan of rock band Silverchair, you will already be familiar with Piet’s style as it inspired the cover of the album Young Modern. Piet’s work features strong primary colours and linear lines.

KindleYourSpark

My page features stamps by Dina Wakley and the quote ‘kindle your spark of madness’.  In the words of Robin Williams – ‘You’re only given a spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.’

You Are Enough by Karen Knight

Hi guys,
 
Karen with you again, and another tag to share with you today. I  fell in love with the Dina Wakley stamps the minute I saw them,  I absolutely love the look of the scribbled ladies, but I tend to struggle a little when I try to create things that have been done with complete creative abandon, so I knew sooner or later they would end up on a tag, and here it is.

I’ve teamed them up with another favourite – Distress paints, I juts love how fluid these are and how well they mix with a little spritz of water!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you are all having a wonderfully creative week!
