Back to the real world everyone with Christmas packed away for now.
I am sure we all enjoyed the October Christmas at Out of a Hat-thank you to Florence for organising it all for us.
Back to Vic pulling the challenges out of a hat and hopefully everyone will enjoy them.
This week the subject is nature which is a vast subject so I am sure the entries will be very varied.
Here is my entry which I call a scanogram. I am not sure if I invented this type of artwork in the deep and distance past but I haven't done any for years. Some of my earlier efforts with a tutorial are here it was written in 2005 and I am pleased to see that I have progressed since those days
You can use anything you like to create your work of art it doesn't have to be flowers and leaves. Just collect a load of whatever you like and lay them on your scanner but remember that the first ones on the scanner will be the ones at the forefront of your design. I think I may well have explained all this better in 2005. When you have laid out your design chose a background to cover it all. I used a piece of red material .
The scanogram you create will be unique and can be printed out to make anything you like.
I made this simple card with a matching gift card from mine
Just been outside and taken a picture of the flowers that are still around in our back garden-there are a lot more in tubs in the front as well. Always things around to do a scanogram--you could use cones, berries and Christmas type things.
