Art Journal - Page 24 (Pipes)

Remember the old computer game, Pipes?

Well, Mandy (my youngest daughter) challenged me once again. But this time she challenged me to use black, white and metallic colours. I cheated and added the blue.

I started on a black paper page, added some white gesso, then started stamping with paint and ink some gears, keys, barbed wire and clocks - anything metal that I could get my hands on LOL.

Then I was stuck! What to do after I'd done that - then it came to me - pipes! But how to get those darn pipes onto the pages and have them actually look like pipes LOL. I started using masking tape to ensure straight lines - failed miserably and just used freehand.

This is the result!
