Day 55: Abstracts

Abstract Scan

Abstract Scan Blue

Abstract Scan Sepia

I did a fun little project tonight with my scanner. First, I cut out shapes from a magazine, pasted them on a white piece of paper, and drew some black lines. Then, I put the paper on the scanner and pulled it up an down and scooted it around a little to add texture. After, I used Picasa to up the saturation and contrast and change the colors around. Yay!

Day 25: Tile Magnets

Pink Tile Magnet

Small Tiles

Tonight, I kept things simple and worked on a project I’ve been putting off for a while–sticking magnets on the back of 1/2″ tiles. Basically, the idea is to hang white magnet boards that I got from IKEA on the living room wall, and then create patterns and shapes with the tile magnets. After a few hours of work this evening, I think I’m done with the tiles. Can’t wait to hang the boards this weekend and see how it looks. I’ll be sure to post with pictures.
