Back to my new style

So far I have made three works on thick acrylic paper that were really to my liking and in a new style for me. An addiction may be in the making, 'cause I have made a fourth one. The colors on this one are a little darker than the previous three, but I kind of like the atmosphere this gives.

This one is called "Van deze drie...", which means "Of these three...", it's the age old wisdom that of faith, hope and love , love is the strongest. The words 'faith', 'hope' and 'love' are put in there too, in their dutch translation that is.

I really enjoy these works, because they are a combination of many techniques all piled on top of each other and I got to use some new stamps as well. What more can an artsy girl want?

PS, I notice that when I photograph these works the lens of the camera tends to warp them a little, which makes the paper seem really crooked. I assure you that in real life the paper is nice and straight ;-) If anybody knows a way around this warped effect I would really like to know.


  1. Hi Caatje,
    This is a wonderful piece and art addiction is a good thing!!!!! If you use Photoshop there is a tool within the edit>transform>skew or warp that might be of help.

  2. Hi Caatje -- I am sure I read somewhere on your blog, or some comment on our Kelly course about free flickr images/textures/ backgrounds. I now can't find the mention, but I have linked to you from my latest blogpost giving you credit for this great resource which I would never have discovered on my own! I am also hoping you will get some mail safely from me soon :-)

  3. Oh I love this piece - the colours pop!


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
