Challenge 9

Rose gave you the run down for challenge 9. This challenge was hard. I have never done any kind of altered art. I did some setting up for the photos I used for this LO. The BG paper and the lamp are from Tina William's kit Grandpa's Den. I downloaded the paintings from various web sites. I created the "zap" painting in Art Rage. I used some actions from Action Fx to age the photos of my kids and of the book. This does not look like I have envisioned in my head. If you can't tell, it is suppose to be set up like a pop up book. My kids don't look like they are looking at the painting. The line down the middle of the page was suppose to look like a corner of a room, but I don't think it looks right either. If anyone reading this blog has any ideas of how I can make this look more real, I am all ears. Please leave a comment. The quote is from Jackson Pollock, who happens to be my daughters favorite artist. It says "It doesn't matter how the paint is put on, as long as something is said". As I look at the quote on the layout, I realize I have a typo. Oh well.

Love the pop-up book effect!

You know, that's a hard challenge ands I think you have (both) done really well with it.

I love your idea of the pop-up book, and your page does look super. It isn't easy to convey depth and space for something like a room, and I think you've done a great job.

Good luck!
