Another Hello Kitty art! I was going through my stuff last Monday and found a cheap flimsy HK suitcase I was wanting to get rid of for years. As I was tossing it out I found a big piece of paper inside that came in with the suitcase featuring Hello Kitty’s face. Whilst I was happy to get rid of the suitcase, I didn’t want to part with that paper because it was too cute!
So I decided to make an art of it rather than leave it in the pile of paper with all my other junk, never to be seen again. I made no concrete plans as to what to do with it and thought I’d just play it by ear as I progress.
Took a thick A4 paper and covered it thinly with neon red paint with a roller. Then partially applied with a spatula some red paint (mixed with glossy gel medium) and scumbled it to make sure the neon colour still showed through. Whilst waiting for it to dry, I carefully cut out Hello Kitty’s face and glued it on that paper.
I had some flowers and heart design stencils left over from the time I was experimenting with my Sizzix die cutting machine. So I took some light green and yellow paint and randomly placed the patterns around her face. Hmmm so what next? It was already midnight but I was somewhat feeling creative.
I grabbed a variety of rubber stamps with flowers on them and started stamping away using ink in dark green, some orange, mustard yellow and for a final accent turquoise blue! My aim was to avoid pink to see if I could still create the same sort of cuteness. Whilst it remains among my fave colours, it seems to be overused at times.
