Layout "Art" - DT Project for ARTastic

Hello all, 
it´s the first of April and there is a new challenge at ARTastic!
For your inspiration there is a painting from Kenneth MacQueen - Wild Poppies.

Bild könnte enthalten: im Freien
If you want to know more about the artist, hop over to the blog, there you´ll find interesting informations!

Now to our challenge. You can use the picture as an inpiration, may be the watercoloring, maybe the shades of grey, the flowers - whatever you like.
The only requested criteria is:  POPS OF RED on your page

This is my take on the challenge:

I was inspired by the watercoloring. I took a photo from my stash, I wanted to use for ages. Now it was the perfect one for the challenge!
I glued paper stripes on a cardstock and painted the surface with white Gesso. Then I placed the photo and drew a face matching to the eye.

I fixed the pencil drawing with some fixative spray.

Now I took some of my ecoline liquid watercolors and painted the face. Then I matted the photo and glued it down.

I took some flower stamps from PaperArtsy, stamped them with Distress Ink in weathered wood and colored them with Pastel pencils. I wrote the word "Art" with a black water soluble pencil and activated it with some water.

 I shaded the edges with Distress Ink black soot.

I decided, to leave the layout as it is and didn´t use any embellishments.

Here are some close ups

Now I hope, that you will find time to join in our challenge this month!
Thank you for dropping in today.

I was inspired by the quote and colors. ART always sets my soul on fire =))
