Post No. 2187 - Do It Your Way

I chose three different acrylic colours today for my spread meant for Yvonne's
Colours In My World 
 over at

 4 images of an advertising magazine were used.

I used Stabilo All in Black for the words and some oilpastels for scribbles on and around the photos and two different stamps to get some interesting marks. Black and white for shading and enhancing the other colours.

Drei Acrylfarben hab ich gewählt für eine Doppelseite für AJJ
Colours In My World.  Bildchen aus einem Werbemagazin und Stabilo All in Schwarz für die Schrift, Ölpastelle für auf und um die Bildchen zu kritzeln und zwei verschieden Stempel um die Seiten ein wenig interessanter zu machen. Schwarz und weiss um zu schattieren und die Farben zu intensivieren.


  1. What a fabulous way to use magazine images and make them your own. I was really impressed with not only the painting, but the way you stamped the images in just the perfect spots, too. I need to try something like this and make my images more "artistic." Again, I am in awe and totally INSPIRED!!!

  2. What a stunning page Susi - love how you have used the black and the stamps - it has really brought the page to life. I hope you week is going well

  3. Liebe Susi

  6. Wieder klasse lebendige Seiten in tollen Farben... auf diese Weise könnte man ja auch wunderbar Bilder seiner Lieben ins rechte Licht setzen, die aber vielleicht nicht so dekorative lange Haare haben...
    Die Akzente auf den Haaren gefallen mir besonders gut!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike
