You Are An Artist

I joined a challenge swap where the requirement was to make a piece of art out of an old book cover.  I went to the local thrift store and purchased a few old books that looked as though they had seen better days and dismantled this one.

The image is a scan of an old Dick and Jane book and the lettering is vinyl lettering I spray painted gold over then peeled off to reveal the black underneath.  I had run out of "S" so I used raised letters I had collected.

The "power beam" and confetti is just made of scrapbook paper that matched colors in Jane's outfit.

My recipient loved it!  I still have the back side and plan to make more of these fun projects.

  1. The contrast between the bright and dark colors and the placement of Jane makes this piece.

  2. Aw, thanks Donna. I just create intuitively so have no clue what I am doing. I like how it turned out though :).

  3. I have always love the art in vintage children's books and your art turned out fabulous! Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  4. Thank you. I love old children's books. They don't make them like they used to.
