My third entrance for the challenge at Aall and Create.
The Challenge is called INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT OF ART & CRAFT = ITAC 2017
The theme for the third challenge is “Oceania” and the criterias are trying to use:
* Patterns inspired by traditional symbols (Maori tattoos, Dots/dashes of aboriginal Arts…)
* Think Monochromatic black and white or think colors of the Earth.
* Some sort of organic or natural material(s) (earth, stone, bone, bark, wood, fibres…)
* Shapes inspired by traditional or indigenous art
There was also a twist that the piece should tell a story. Mine is kind of symbolic with the heart, the blue (ocean) and the wood (land).
So, after trying my best to fit them all in (it’s always fun doing that) my canvas looked like this:
Sentence: Sticker letters
Embellishments: Polish Tangle, Lace, Wood pieces, Glass beads
Medium: Gesso, Soft Gel (Prima), Wax (Finnabair Prima), Heavy Gel (Prima),
Colors: Blue mists (Tattered Angels), Sparkling Acrylic (Finnabair Prima),
