Make Art Not War
This is a quick project inspired/prompted by Barbara Gray's blog yesterday. She suggested we make a piece of art with the words "Make Art Not War" as a collective craft community statement. This is my contribution.
I started with an inky background from a mop up of a previous project, which I really liked. Such a pity you can never repeat these!
I stamped the words in black archival ink. I had "art" from a word chain, the other words were made up from the word chain alphabet stamps.
I had thought I'd add more to the background, but actually I really like it as is. So simple!
I just trimmed the card down, added a little purple and yellow round the corners (dry brushing with the ink left on my stencil brushes) and mounted on black card.
I should probably sign this now - but not taking the photos again!
I hope you like my simple statement.
