It's never too early to start celebrating Earth Day! I wish we would treasure the earth all year round! But at least we can gear up and start celebrating early!
This year I am proud to be partnering up with some amazing women to create a wonderful site to celebrate Earth Day with children! Check out my post: "1000 Ways to Love the Earth"
The art for my “Celebrate Earth Day” Poster was create in the square format as a CD cover for my good friend and children's world music artist Daria’s new earth friendly CD “Daria Sings for Earth Day”. After it was finished, I altered the art to create our "Celebrate Earth Day" Poster!
I tried something a little new. I wanted the art to have a natural collage feel, yet still use my children around the world image. Here is the process as it evolved. I started by creating the background “collage” by scanning bits of paper collected in my treasure box of interesting stuff for art journaling! Crumpled brown packaging paper becomes my background. A coffee sleeve turned inside out becomes the border. Cream netting from a deteriorated vintage book, overlaps a scrap of bright green handmade paper, and ridged textured material, from the same vintage book, is put into the collage. A pink scrap of handmade Japanese paper becomes my hearts and trim. Bits and pieces of other recycled brown papers and all the pink and green poster border is copied and pasted many times from those tiny scraps to create the borders and lettering! The earth elements are from photographs, the starfish from a trip to Monterey, California, a seashell from Santa Barbara, and the leaf and flower from my back yard. Even the art, my "Children Around the World", was reworked, recycled and reused for this piece. I used digital manipulation keeping the elements on different layers in Photoshop C3 to move around and play with. The Earth is a new piece I painted on my IPAD, on the “Artrage” drawing and painting application, using a "pastel" paintbrush. I then emailed this art to my laptop, and opened in Photoshop and added it to the composition. What a fun way to work, using these materials over and over!
