|Umbrella Man is my new Tim Holtz die.|
I thinking I might be obsessed with him.
|Umbrella Man is perfect for the Rain Challenge|
in A Year in the Life of an Art Journal.
I love it when I can combine different ideas into one piece.
I've been doing challenges and prompts from several different art journal blogs. I combined the Rain Challenge in A Year in the Life of an Art Journal, Prompt 6ix # 2 from Daisy Yellow and the Creative Everyday challenge and the left picture is the result.
His jacket is a copy of a piece of sheet music I found online and the quote I wrote.
The themes I used were dark, lime green, grunge, treasure hunt and acrylic paint. I made his coat extra long so that it look like a man wearing formal wear, is out in the rain, looking for treasure.
The quote is: "Green Rain," the umbrella man sighed with disdain. This is one of the more whimsical pieces that I've done.
The right is a result of playing with distressed in as a background. I used a brush as well as direct to paper. I used a dylusion stencil and white Stampin' Up ink for the checked border and tried my hand at lettering for the words.
