My Little Red Riding Hood # Moj Maly Czerwony Kapturek

Hello Art Souls!!!
Witam Kreatywne Dusze!!!

This is a painting I made for a April challenge in Art Piaskownica blog.:) The rule was that I needed to use only 4 colors: Beige, Blue, Black and Red and because I LOVE fairy tales I decided to paint Red Riding Hood:)

Ten obraz namalowalam na Kwietniowe Wyzwanie dla blogu Art Piaskownica:) Zasada byla taka zeby uzyc czterech kolorow: Bezowego, Niebieskiego, Czarnego i Czerwonego. A poniewaz ja uwielbiam bajki, zdecydowalam sie namalowac Czerwonego Kapturka:)

In the background I decided to use different papers such as music sheet, dictionary paper and tissue paper, which gave more texture to the painting.

Do zbudowania tla zdecydowalam sie uzyc roznych papierow takich jak: nuty, strona ze slownika czy bibula prasowana, by dodac wiec tekstury.

To the hat I added paper doilies.

Do kapelusza dodalam papierowa serwetke

I also added little house for the grandma:)

Dodalam rowniez papierowy domek dla babci:)

And the forest:)

I las :)

Painting was created on a wooden block. I also painted sides and back of the block.

Obrazek zostal namalowany na bloku drewna. Boki i tyl bloku rowniez pomalowalam.

I hope you enjoyed this fairy tale girl:)
And make sure to visit Art Piaskownica blog:)

Mam nadzieje ze podobala wam sie moja bajkowa dziewczynka.
I koniecznie odwiedz bloga Art Piaskownic:)

Draw It, Paint It, Collage it- tutorial

Hello again my arty souls:)

I am recently obsessed with collages. They are so simple and cheerful, that I just can't stop making them:))) So today I wanted to show you how do I make them and maybe I will encourage you also find this inner child inside you and play :)

I am very inspired by spring and little birds, which made a little nest under my roof:) I am so enjoying their singing:) That is why this art journal page has been created:)

I started by randomly applying some leftover of acrylic paint. I didn't think much about the colors...

 I gathered some scarps of papers and collage pieces from my painted pages. Sometimes when I watch TV I just draw random shapes (hearts, stars, flowers) than I cut them and use them in my paintings and collages.

I added collage pieces to the background

Just play with composition and remember to use contrasting colours

When I was happy with the collage pieces, I added more acrylic paint.

As for the bird, Firstly I put coat of gesso on thin piece of paper. The reason for that is that it allowed me to shade my bird with Faber Castell Gelatos and Pitt Pens. I drew my bird with watercolour pencil than I coloured it with Pitt Pens and Gelatos. I added a little bit of water for shading.

I cut the bird out and place it on my page

I added some writing and READY!!!:)

Other examples of recent collages in my art journal:

I hope you feel inspired to try playing with this technique :)))
