Today is Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-A-Faire 2016! It started 7am eastern time – so I’m a bit behind already, but we have until Tuesday to post projects. This year’s theme is The Masters – each challenge will be inspired by a famous artist.
The first challenge was a color challenge, and I, of course, picked the one based off Van Gogh:
Here is what I made:
I love Van Gogh’s landscape paintings because they have so many layers and the colors are so beautiful. I wanted to imitate the layers. The background is sponged with Aqua Mist. The abstract half-circle images are from the Ahoy set.
Though my inspiration came from the Van Gogh painting, this sure does make me think about Monet’s lily pads.
Thanks for taking a peek!
