It has been a little while since I have made anything. And I got the creative itch last night. Here is what I came up with.
I took a photograph I had and used the “stamp” filter in Photoshop to turn it solid, flat, and black and white. Here is the original photo:
And here is the photo after using the “stamp” filter in Photoshop:
Next I made a stencil, using an old file folder from my office:
Then I spray painted the stencil onto a flat, hard canvas board. and used black acrylic paint to go over the spray paint, adding a thicker, less graffiti like texture.
After I had the portrait painted onto the canvas, I thought it would be cool to use the nespresso pods as hair….adding depth and texture to the piece….a different medium. So I cut the black pods, and a couple of red ones, into long strands. And then simply glued them on appropriately onto the image.
And here is the result:
Thanks for stopping by. Now go be creative…and turn your something old into something new.
