March's inspiration art at ARTastic Challenge Blog is this Image of November by William Rose. Challenge criteria is use of a stencil. Although I would have liked to link up to the ARTastic Challenge, due to the time difference in the hemisphere, I missed the deadline.
The inspiration: I was struck by the horizontal and vertical lines as well as the blue that created boxes. My first thought was a sailing ship with its reflection on the water--or maybe an industrial site on the river. However, while looking through my picture file, I came across this hotel pic which certainly contained the horizontal and vertial elements including "boxes". Even my plaid shirt fit in and was blue!
The technique: I haven't scrapbooked for a long time. I've migrated to digital scrapping and pocket pages. Wanting to get back to tactile scrapbook pages, I've admired several samples of horizontal/vertical splashes of color with lots of white space. This technique is begging to be used in this layout. I extended the vertical and horizontal lines beyond the photo into the page to go with my theme "beyond boundaries". This page actually is in my journal.
While putting away things, I came across this Anthropologie bag and decided it would make the perfect backdrop. I cut the bag to size. I loved the boxes and that splash of blue. I toned down the print with white gesso.
