I had this Ruby Rd. Woman tag off of a piece of my clothes and I saved it to do some artwork with. I also saved the Chinese fortune cookie fortune that say, "Your co-workers take pleasure in your great sense of creativity." I thought that they would both make a great art page someday. Well I went to Faber-Castell's website and found this challenge to make some art with something used or old. I think my tag and fortune certainly would fit the bill. I also did the girl with an old book page that I tore out of the altered books that I do with my altered book club. The background page was done at my art journaling class that I do at a local store, Whimsey's. She had us tape off our pages for a fun new technique. I think the background works particularly well with this page because it becomes the Ruby road!
After I did the background, I was a little stuck and didn't know what else I wanted to do with it but the challenge made me think - This is what I could do with that page!
I found the great quote from one of my favorite artist, Claude Monet and thought it worked well too.
The other writing on the page says, I love colors too and just had to do a woman in red to go with my tag from some of my clothes.
Then I add the butterflies for color and beauty.
I hope you enjoy my Ruby red woman! She was lots of fun to make and now I have used some great old things.
If you'd like to see the challenge you can go here.
