Invitation or Art?
Those who know me best know how much I love making invitations. They also know that I love painting. As in, every piece of clothing I own has paint on it somewhere. There are canvases leaning up against every surface of my home, both complete and half finished. And between the Divine Miss A and I, we have made piles of loose leaf paintings on various types of paper throughout the house. Consequently, we have an art problem.
And then I had a brainwave… Why not combine my two great loves? Why not turn some of my artwork into invitations? Isn’t that the whole point of professional grade scanners anyway?
Why choose when you can have both!
A few weeks ago I had a great time with a glass of wine, some yupo paper (which is thin paper made of plastic) and alcohol ink. I set it all aside to dry and a few days later created this.
I’m pretty excited about how this turned out! The flow of the alcohol ink really comes across well in the print. Every little splash and texture is captured beautifully and every detail pops. Here is a close up.
