Think Monday - Think ATC

Right here we go my first attempt at a Blog Challenge, this Mondays challenge was "Lines from poems, songs or books". The line that came to my mind when I was trying to think of a starting point was "I know where it's at . . ", an All Saints song, no ideas followed this though so my next choice was Imagine by John Lennon, and "imagine all the people", lots of faces and I was ready to go.


My background of faces are virtually all from a copy of Now magazine, didnt have anything else much to use, covered them all with PVa to try and bring the gloss and famous faces down into the background that didnt work too well so rubbed some white ink over as well, then had to rub most of it off as obscured too much, was really lucky that I had a Tim Holtz tag that said Imagine, downloaded the words of the song and printed them out in a font made with my own handwriting (see this site) onto some vellum, then altered a jigsaw piece with a image of John Lennon on, inked the edge and then postitioned the pieces, hope you like it, Im just so pleased I finally managed to do a challenge.

Great ATC, Siobhan! And good on you for going in for a challenge (I must get back into them myself!)

BTW I use gesso (white) to tone down. Paint or dab it over the image and then wipe or blot a bit with a baby wipe. Or you could use white acrylic.
