Bloggers Challenge 66 – Warhol Technique (and Artistic Outpost Sneak Peek!)

This week’s Bloggers Challenge was to use the Warhol technique…for those of you way to young or not born yet (1960’s)…Andy Warhol was a famous New York City artist who brought "pop" art into the mainstream, and developed a new, fresh style of creating…this is my take on one of his works…

Basically the technique consists of repeated images in grid fashion; these are stamped in black (that being the common denominator), and using and repeating several colors.

I used a bird image from a new release coming up from Artistic Outpost (more on that later!), so I’m killing two birds with one stone, no pun intended.

Supplies:

Stamp:  Blue Bird (AO); Paper:  Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, and Real Red (Stampin’ Up!), and patterned paper (Basic Grey); Ink:  Palette Black Noir; Accessories:  1 1/4" square punch, 1 3/8" square punch, yellow, orange, and red stitched ribbon (Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts), Dew Drops and Glossy Accents to adhere them

As I already mentioned, Artistic Outpost is releasing two new stamp plates. On October 1st, Snowy Woods and Bluebird will be available.Aooct_2
We’re so excited about the Christmas plate this year, it features peaceful images of a loving Santa Claus who we believe is the real one. No mall Santa’s helpers here!!! This is a full 8.5 x 11" unmounted stamp collection. Loads of beautiful images, and AO’s first "full" plate. 

The Bluebird collection is the half plate size of 8.5 x 5.5". It is meant to be your solace this winter. You can see the reflections of winter and spring all in this one collection. This peaceful collection of bird-inspired images will carry you through to spring!

Specials on these plates will be posted on October 1st. In addition, believe it our not, October marks Artistic Outpost’s ONE year anniversary.  With this milestone will come blog candy and additional specials on their one year old darling stamp sets. The ones that got us going and that we will always hold in our hearts.   

Be sure to check back for a sneak peeks and samples.  If you haven’t already signed up for blog updates – be sure you do, that way you won’t miss out on our specials and anniversary celebration!  You can sign up here!  You’ll be able to check out some of the other designers’ sneak peaks as well!  Have fun!!!
